New Audi Q3 First Drive - Is Audi's latest SUV worth waiting for?

We headed to Italy to drive the new Audi Q3 ahead of its local launch next year. What has Audi done to make this model better than its rivals? Ciro de Siena made a video while he was there.

The latest generation of Audi Q3 will only arrive in SA in the 2nd quarter of 2019, but we recently attended the international launch in northern Italy to test drive the German brand's newest SUV.

With styling cues from the bold Q8, the new Q3 is an all-new car and is now based on the Tiguan chassis. Its dimensions have grown but mostly in length, the extra perceived width is largely a trick of the eye thanks to clever design.

With increased practicality in terms of load bay capacity and rear seat flexibility, as well as a wide array of cutting-edge tech features and safety systems, is the new Q3 worth waiting for? We sent Ciro De Siena to find out.
