Audi Q3 First Drive Review

the Audi Q3 is a very impressive entrant into the premium small SUV segment, and one that makes the BMW X1 look awkward. Not quite as cool or capable as the Range Rover Evoque, the Q3 is cheaper and pretty good on a dirt road.

MINI Cooper S Paceman First Drive

Despite the high ride height, the Mini Paceman lacks AWD. And while the extra length pays dividends in rear seat space, there’s still only room for two back there and intending occupants have to find their way in and out using the front doors.
