Order books for Audi's latest 'Q', the Q3, are set to open June this year with deliveries just in time for the winter weather from November. So what could make the small compact SUV city crossover more attractive...?
A very attractive price of £24,560, generously equipped across the range.
So most importantly for any Audi is the power keg under the bonnet, ranging from 140PS to 211PS the Q3 features Audi's 2.0l TFSI and TDI engines - including start-stop technology and energy recuperation in all.
Moving onto specification and as mentioned earlier the Q3 is packed with standard equipment, from Audi's music interface to a retractable 6" display the Q3 is full of tech. Bluetooth preparation and Voice dialogue also feature across the 8 speaker sound system, while headlights, windscreen wipers and Dual zone climate control are all automated for your comfort.
Exterior highlights include aluminium roof rails and trim surrounding the windows, with two tone contrasting metallic finishes and front fog lights. This theme is carried into the cabin with aluminium door sills and a stainless steel luggage sill and monochromatic touches within the drivers information display and inlays.
The S-line of course gets upgraded features, including 18" alloys and Xenon headlights with LED runners and rear tail lights. Throw in some sports seats and lower the sports suspension 20mm and the Q3 will no doubt look mean, but not as mean as an inevitable RS, convertible and sportback version.
