Audi Q3 Spotted

I'm currently in Verona Italy and drooling over all of the cars Euros have access to that we don't.

Spotted this Audi Q3 today. I'm really interested in how this compares to the X1. Hopefully Audi will bring it to the US sooner than later.

Glad I bought the X1. Q3 looks ugly and other X1 competitors.

Agree, have seen several q3s over here while doing our ED, they are terrible looking, just don't care for them from the back or the side. Glad we didn't wait for it to come tot he us and just went with a X1.

The Q3 kind of looks like a SUV version of the Beatle. It's not for me. Glad I have the X1.

That is EXACTLY what I thought and almost posted! It's like an angular, beefed up version of a VW beetle. Do they share the same platform I wonder? Audi is part of the VW group.
