For better traction, the Q3 has larger standard tires than the NX Series (235/55R18 vs. 225/65R17). The Q3’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the NX Series (255/40R20 vs. 235/55R18).

The Q3’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 55 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the NX Series’ standard 65 series tires. The Q3’s optional tires have a lower 40 series profile than the NX Series F Sport’s 55 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Q3 has standard 18-inch wheels. Smaller 17-inch wheels are standard on the NX Series. The Q3’s optional 20-inch wheels are larger than the 18-inch wheels optional on the NX Series.

The Q3’s power window and power lock switches are lit from behind, making them plainly visible and easier to operate at night. The NX Series’ power lock switches are unlit, making them difficult to find at night and operate safely.

The Q3’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The NX Series’ standard manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

The Q3 Prestige’s Park Steering Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The NX Series doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
