Kelley Blue Book (KBB) has named the Audi A3 and Q3 as among the best luxury cars under $35,000. Both cars made it into the top ten list issued by KBB who has a 12-person editorial staff in charge of driving and reviewing just about all new vehicles that go on sale each year. The list was created by the selections made by the team based on their industry knowledge and expert opinion.
Audi of America president Scott Keogh said “the 2015 A3 and Q3 raise the bar for what is to be expected in terms of standard performance and technology in the entry premium market” and “This unwillingness to compromise on the amenities that drivers value most is reflected by the recognition from KBB.”
The Audi A3 and Q3 are both premium products with a vast array of standard equipment, such as the leather seating surfaces on the A3 Sedan while the Q3 compact crossover is equipped with a standard panoramic sunroof with power retractable sunshade. Even the base Q3 gets Audi xenon plus front lighting with LED daytime running lights and LED taillights, as well as LED interior lighting, leather seating surfaces and 12-way power front seats.
