Round 1. A Contest of Standard Features.

The bell rings, and the Audi Q3 comes out fast, showing off its standard front and rear LED lighting. The cameras flash, and the Audi Q3 presses the attack by showing off its 10.3" drivers display-center and 8.8" touchscreen infotainment stack. The crowd is nervous. The Volvo XC40 shakes it off and counters right back with its own set of standard LED headlights and taillights. Just when the Audi Q3 was getting a little cocky, the Volvo XC40 lands a few heavy shots with its standard best-in-class 12.3" digital drivers display-center and 9" touchscreen infotainment stack. The Audi Q3 stumbles back. A little dazed by that surprise combo from the Volvo XC40. The Q3 picks up its guard and steps back into the center of the ring, where the Volvo XC40 is calmly waiting.

The Q3 comes back hard and fast connecting with standard Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth connectivity. The Q3 presses the XC40 with a standard equipment combination of backup camera, high beam assist, forward collision detection, and automatic braking assistance. The Q3 seems to be pushing the Volvo XC40 against the ropes, but here comes the Slugger from Sweden. He's not out of this match yet! The XC40 plants its front foot and absolutely HAMMERS the Q3 with the same connectivity features, stunning the Q3's corner, right before the XC40 lands a devastating combination of standard safety features like blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, lane keep assistance, forward collision detection, rear-traffic collision detection, automatic braking assistance, and run-off-road protection! The Q3 tries to come back with its standard leather interior. The XC40 counters showing off its own premium leather interior. The defender from Dusseldorf is dumbfounded! How could the Volvo XC40 include so much surprising firepower?! But there's the bell. The XC40 dances back to its corner while the Q3 tries to come to terms with what just happened out there.

Round 2. Power To Power. A Clash of Performance.

There's the bell. The 2021 Audi Q3 has regrouped. Recharged. And is ready to throw down a serious statement about German engineering. The Q3 dazzles the crowd with its base Audi Q3 S-line price of $36,000.00. It keeps up the performance with standard Quattro AWD, a turbocharged 4cyl engine, 228HP, and selectable drive modes! The Volvo XC40 takes a minute. Its base model, Momentum, starts at $33,700.00 and includes a 187HP turbo 4cyl with FWD with selectable drive modes! But wait! Just when the Audi Q3 thinks it has a leg up on the XC40, the Volvo comes back by showing that its base model XC40 Momentum can also have AWD with 248HP thanks to the T5 engine and a sticker of $35,700! The XC40 has more power for less money, and the Audi Q3 just has no - place - to - go! In a last-ditch effort, the Q3 comes off the ropes showing its 8-speed automatic transmission; the Volvo XC40 comes back, showing off its own 8-speed automatic transmission.

Now they're trading punch for punch in the center of the ring! The Q3 has an impressive 0-60 of only 7 seconds. The XC40 is faster and comes back with a 0-60 of 6.7 seconds. In the panic, with its smaller motor, the Q3 launches an attack with its rated mpg at 19city/27highway. The Volvo XC40 has 'em now. It's bigger, more powerful 4cyl engine comes back with greater efficiency and a rated 23city/32highway mpg. Uh-oh. The Audi Q3 struggles to bring up its guard, but it can barely see through its swollen LED headlights. It looks like the Q3 has nothing left. It doesn't even have complimentary maintenance. It tries to feebly demonstrate that for an extra $799, it gives you 1yr/10K miles pre-paid maintenance. The XC40 comes right back with 3yrs/36K miles COMPLIMENTARY maintenance & Volvo Valet! The Audi lands face-first on the mat in round 2. Seven...Eight….Nine….TEN! The Audi is out of commission!!!
