Comparison: Boot space Audi Q3 vs. competitors 2024

How much cargo can handle this medium SUV?

When you think Audi Q3, you might imagine a suave, urbanite kind of SUV, one that's as comfortable nipping to the supermarket as it is embarking on a weekend jaunt to the countryside. But let's cut to the chase, what's truly mesmerizing about the Audi Q3 is its boot space. In the world of compact SUVs, where every cubic centimeter counts like calories in a diet plan, the Q3 makes its mark not just with its premium badge but with a boot that's ready to swallow your weekly shopping, and then some.

Audi Q3 - How has the boot space changed over the generations?

Since its inception, the Audi Q3 has been playing a game of 'Now you see me, now you see more of me' with its boot space. The first generation (Q3 8U 2011-2014 and its Facelift in 2015-2018) offered 460 liters of boot space, which, while respectable, always had room for improvement. Audi took this feedback and turned it into action – the current generation (Q3 F3 2018-now) boasts a boot space of 530 liters. That's a significant leap forward, showing that Audi isn't just about making cars that look good parked on your driveway; they're also about practicality.
The difference in Boot space between first generation (8U) from 2011 and last generation (F3) from 2018 is 70 l.
The boot space of the current generation of Q3 is 530 l.

The boot space compared to other Audi models

In the grand scheme of Audi's lineup, the Q3 sits comfortably in the middle when it comes to boot space. It dwarfs the boot capacity of the more diminutive A1 and A3 models, which offer up to 335 and 380 liters respectively, yet it doesn't overreach into the territory of its bigger siblings like the Q7 and Q8, which pack a much heftier punch in the luggage department. It's the Goldilocks of Audi's SUV range – not too small, not too large, but just right for those who lead a lifestyle that demands flexibility without compromise.

How does the boot space of the Audi Q3 compare to it's nearest competitors?

But how does the Q3 stack up against its rivals in the compact SUV arena? Let's start with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, which offers a scant 15 liters less boot space, demonstrating that Italian flair sometimes comes with a small sacrifice in practicality. The Mercedes-Benz EQB trails with 35 liters less, showing that even in the electric SUV market, the Q3 holds its ground impressively. Moving on, the Genesis GV70 comes in with a bit more room, besting the Q3 by 12 liters – a reminder that the battle for boot space supremacy is fiercely contested. Lastly, the Toyota Highlander, a behemoth by comparison, offers a cavernous 241 liters more, but with its much larger dimensions, it's like comparing apples to oranges - or in this case, full-sized SUVs to their compact cousins.
