Audi Q3 Nice SUV But Misses Essential Features
The new Audi Q3 is an important vehicle from the German automaker in the Indian market. The small SUV aptly targets people who love to have a fun-to-drive vehicle with both luxury and power onboard that too in the reasonable price range. The five-year-old SUV has been receiving timely updates to keep the interest of the buyers intact. But recently, when I was reading about the facelift which was launched last year, I was shocked that the car still misses out many essential aspects. The infotainment system seems to be aging and the user interface is not as slick as that in new models of Audi. It also lacks features such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay which should have been incorporated in a car of Rs. 35 lakh. Moreover, the omission of push-start button and keyless entry is a sheer disappointment. You can even find these features in 4 times inexpensive cars such as Maruti Suzuki's Vitara Brezza. Rest, the car is a good buy if you are considering a small luxury SUV with a powerful engine which is also fuel efficient. People will argue that for the price of Q3, there are plenty of other options such as full-fledged SUV like Endeavour and Fortuner. However, Audi Q3 does not disappoint on the premium aspects. Other than that, for people who love eye-catching luxury SUV in this class, they can go for Mercedes Benz GLA and also BMW X1, which is certainly a driver-oriented car.
