If there's one manufacturer you can rely on for always producing an interior that's impossible to fault, it's Audi. Although you're not going to find much flair or quirkiness in the Q3's cabin, it feels extremely well made with high quality materials, while there's plenty of space and everything's logically laid out.

Up front, the Q3 feels like a minature Q8 - definitely a good thing, in our books. There's a 10.1-inch screen in the centre of the dash providing access to entertainment and navigation. It's fast to use and easy to operate, although some will still argue that conventional buttons are easier to use than a touchscreen setup.

One novel feature is the optional alcantara trim on the dash - available in orange, should you wish.

In the rear, two adults can fit comfortably with a generous amount of head and legroom. Middle passengers might be a bit more cramped thanks to a transmission tunnel running between their legs, but the middle seat's fine for occasional use.

The three-seat rear bench can be moved backwards and forewards by 150mm depending on whether you need to prioritise room for rear passengers or boot space, while the rear seat backrest can be split 40:20:40 and tilted in seven stages.

There are clever features in the boot, too. The rear parcel shelf can be removed and slotted neatly under the floor (a feature which, surprisingly, isn't very common), while the opening height of the power-operated tailgate can be adjusted at the tough of the button - perfect if you need to open it in a garage, or just have short arms.
