A fancier, sharper version of the standard Q3, is the Audi Q3 Sportback different enough to warrant a look in?
This is an Audi Q3. Kind of. When the current generation Q3 was designed it was always going to be wearing two body styles, which is the standard SUV design and the version seen here, a swoopier, more angular version called the Q3 Sportback.
It follows on from the current trend of building coupe-like SUVs, combining the utility of a high-riding, easy-to-drive car with svelte styling that says of the driver, “hey I’m not as boring as you think I am.”
The Q3 Sportback is sold in Singapore with two engine options, a 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine and a more powerful 2.0-litre petrol turbo, driven here.
