The Audi Q3 is a five-door compact executivecrossover by Audi. The Q3 has a transverse-mounted front engine, and entered production in 2011.

The car uses the Volkswagen Group A5 (PQ35) platform of the Volkswagen Golf Mk5, the same as the Volkswagen Tiguan/SEAT Tribu small SUVs. The Q3 slots above the proposed Audi Q2 mini-crossover. Compared to the mid-luxury compact Q5 and full-size Q7, which are positioned more for family practicality and off-road performance, the Q3 is aimed as more of a lifestyle/sports automobile.

The Q3 shares components, transmissions and engines with amongst other vehicles utilising the PQ35 platform, the Volkswagen Golf, Audi A3 and Škoda Yeti.

The vehicle was unveiled in Auto Shanghai 2011.
