I took delivery of my 2021 Q3 today. This is my first Q3 since Audi refreshed the model line the USA in 2019.

I had previously owned a 2015 and 2018 Q3 and loved them both, but this Q3 is different (in a good way) and my first impression is that I LOVE IT.

I was fortunate to have been able to do a custom order; so I got a Premium Plus S Line and loaded it up.

The color (Chronos Gray) is beautiful and really makes the black optic package pop.

I think Audi even borrowed some of the interior dashboard design from the Lamborghini SUV.

There's already a growing list of things I love in this 2021.....

Hands free tailgate open/close (waving foot under bumper)
Customizable interior LED cabin lighting
8 speed transmission
Black Optics package
Digital dashboard
Wireless phone charging (and cell signal booster)
Audi rings puddle lights
B&O Stereo
I'm loving this car!

@dipaola since getting your new 2021 - is there anything you wish you could have added to it? What does Audi do well in the newer Q3? What is your general thoughts on adding that black optic package to your vehicle (besides looks). Is it worth it? or is it better to just get a regular one and dip all the features...

Is the wireless phone charging only available on the 2021 models?? (I have the charging pad right now in my truck - is it something that i will have to get used to without in an older model?).

Sorry about all the questions.

Chronos gray is my fav, with that black optic package - looks sick af - I'm hoping I won't have to build my Q3 but if I don't find what I am looking for I probably will.....lol

As for additional options, I don't think there were any more options to add to the car when I ordered it. Other than upgrading to larger 20" tires, but that would have meant I had to swap tires in the Summer and Winter and I wasn't down with that. The digital dashboard is amazing, especially when using the GPS.

I wouldn't skip the black optic package, it's really really sharp looking.

I'm not sure if the wireless phone charging come in the 2019 or 2020 version, but i can confirm it does NOT come in the 2018 version of the Q3.

Let me know if you have luck finding a Chronos Gray one with Black Optic and B&O. The B&O stereo is amazing too.

I didn't see memory seats in your list. I know Audi is holding out on those so you will opt for the higher margin Q5, but I opted for an OSD of a Volvo XC40 instead (it matches or, as with the memory seats, exceeds the items on your list

Huh? I have memory driver seat and mirrors in my 2022 Premium Plus. Automatically adjusts to me or my wife as soon as we start the car. I looked at the Volvo as well but my nearest dealer seemed a bit of a crook.

You are right. I checked and they are an option on 2022 models. I was in the market for a replacement of my 2016 Q3 last year (2021 model year) and they weren't available. That fact plus VW's decision to end the OSD program for the US made me go with the Volvo XC40. Unfortunately Sweden closed the borders because of covid a week before we were supposed to go get our car. So we postponed the delivery until the 2022 models came out. I like my 2016 Q3 a lot and it got good reviews when it came out. The new Q3's haven't gotten as good of ratings as the 2016's but as they say beauty is the eye of the beholder.
