A very positive review of the Q here:

http://www.autos.ca/car-test-drives/test-drive-2016-audi-q3/3/

Overall, most of the reviews praise the confident and competent handling of the Q3. I`m kind of glad that I didn`t splurge for the Sport Package. Most of the reviews I have read comment on the compromised ride quality with the bigger wheels and thinner tires (compromised re: for those looking for a more luxurious ride). Although, this may be what more sporting drivers may be looking for.

Nice review of the Q3. I've read some that were not very accurate at all but this one seems to speak accurately to the general feel.

The reviewed model however, is an S-line model with 20" wheels - not related to the sport package and not available in the US (not sure about Canada). The sport package is independent of wheel choice which in the US is 18" or 19". I had the 18's for a few days before it was swapped for the 19's so I got to try both. The 18's did give a slightly softer ride and the 19's give a sportier feel with better cornering but not so firm that it is annoying. I can't imagine 20's and I think those would be too harsh for this type of car. I do like those rotor style wheels which are available in 19's as well. Looks really sharp on the Q.

In Canada for the 2015 model year the 20 inch wheels were available for an additional (rather modest) 400 or bucks or so if you got the sport handling package.

Mischievous handling is right on the nose.

So cheap that it's basically an impulse buy for people like me, beats venturing out to aftermarket options.
