The Audi Q3 is a popular choice thanks to its excellent build quality and upmarket image. Its rivals include the BMW X1, the Range Rover Evoque and the Mercedes GLA – all of which compete in the fiercely contested compact premium SUV sector.
It sits somewhere between Audi’s smaller hatchbacks and larger SUVs so we’ve put together this sizes and dimensions guide to help you decide if it’ll fit into your life. Our Audi Q3 deals page will make sure you get the cheapest prices and the best service.
Audi Q3 exterior dimensions
The Q3’s exterior dimensions are fairly average for its class. At 4,388mm in length, it’s marginally shorter than the 4,417mm Mercedes GLA. Compared to the 4,358mm Ford Focus, you can see how compact this SUV is – you won’t have any issues fitting it in a garage. That said, width is worth considering and, in the Q3’s case, it’s just over two metres wide including the door mirrors.

Audi Q3 interior dimensions
The interior looks high quality and feels well screwed together. Thanks to its lofty height, there’s tons of headroom in the front but the sloping rear end means taller rear passengers might need to stoop slightly. Despite this, there’s more rear legroom than an equivalent Audi A3 making it easier for families.
Audi Q3 boot space
There’s 420 litres of space with the rear seats up but, should you need to carry bulky loads, fold them down and you get a generous 1,325 litres to play with. It’s a disappointment compared to the cavernous BMW X1, though – with the seats up there’s over 505 litres of space, and folding them flat will give you an extra 200 litres over the Q3. The higher boot lip compared to an A3 also makes loading heavier items a little harder.
|Boot space (seats up)||420 litres|
|Boot space (seats folded)||1,325 litres|
Audi Q3 turning circle and fuel tank capacity
The Audi isn’t difficult to drive and the turning circle reflects this – at 11.8 metres, it’s almost identical to the Mercedes GLA and smaller than the outgoing Volkswagen Tiguan’s 12 metres. Whichever engine you opt for, you’ll get a sizeable 64-litre fuel tank.
|Turning circle||11.8 metres|
|Fuel tank||64 litres|
Audi Q3 weight and towing limits
The lightest Q3 weighs 1,385kg but liberal ticking of the options list and the addition of a diesel engine takes that up to 1,585kg. Fit a tow bar and the Q3 is a reasonably capable towing vehicle, offering a maximum braked trailer load of 2,000kg.
|Max braked towing weight||2,000kg|
