The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.3
6.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Audi Q3 offers a fun-to-drive alternative to the entry compact luxury car, but with more utility. Versus its rivals, it delivers more ride comfort and interior refinement, but less fuel efficiency. The 2018 BMW X1 is a compelling crossover pick for a budget BMW buyer who can’t do without a roundel.
