Seems like you were made for a Q5!For me, cargo space SUCKS. I have to fold the back seat to put my golf clubs in. Nevermind if I go golfing with 2 more friends, it is a challenge to fit all in.
Previously I had a Mazda CX-7, excellent cargo space. 3 sets of clubs in the trunk without folding the seats. Talk about space...
I like the Q3 interiors way better. Also the S-tronic above the tiptronic. Gas mileage is better in the Q3.Seems like you were made for a Q5!
It makes for a great excuse to treat yourself to a nice rental for one of your golfing outings
Tomorrow my wife and I embark on our second 600+ mile trip in the last two weeks in our new Q3, but it's going to be interrupted early on as we swap into a Q5 for over 500 of those miles.For me, cargo space SUCKS. I have to fold the back seat to put my golf clubs in. Nevermind if I go golfing with 2 more friends, it is a challenge to fit all in.
My first drive in the Q3 convinced me to get two of them!!I think you'll find the Q5 a bit roomier, perhaps translating into comfort depending on your contents and passengers, but at the same time your comment "lumbering" at least to me, is how I feel in the car especially with the 2.0. I just like smaller vehicles and the Q3 is the right size for my taste in an SUV or crossover... I might be tempted with a TTQ, but would have to drive one for sure. My conclusion from my first drive of the Q3 in 2011 confirmed my feelings then and they are the same today.
My brother decided to buy the Q5 instead of the Q3.Can anyone on this forum offer some insight into the Q3 vs. the Q5 in overall terms?
I know I’m responding to an old post but all I’ve got to say is the Q3 trunk is T I N Y . I had an A3 that could fit more in the trunk then this guy! Super super annoying. I have a 1.5YO and putting stroller in and getting **** thing to close is like playing Tetrus (sp?)….. considering selling which is a shame as I purchased less then a year ago all cash grrrrHi, I am considering buying a Q3 or a Q5 & wanted to ask all the Q3 owners if they feel that the Q3 is roomy enough especially when it comes to the trunk size? How many standard 50 lb (check in) bags can you fit in? What about strollers etc? Did you ever feel like you should have bought a larger SUV? Thanks!
