The new Audi Q3 has landed and it will have an on-the-road price of €39,600 and is available to order now.
Audi says the new Q3 boasts a bolder new body with a much sportier design concept than its predecessor. Styling features include narrow LED headlights which run inwards with a uniquely wedge-like shape for stylish illumination, while its side view epitomises the balance of the exterior design with perfectly symmetrical lighting from headlights to rear lights.
The side view is further enhanced by the 18-inch alloy wheels on the SE and 19-inch alloy wheels on the S line. Supported by a long roof edge spoiler, as well as aluminium roof rails, the steeply raked D pillars make a considerable contribution to the SUV’s more purposeful and powerful stance.
The configuration of the MMI touch display, alongside the Audi virtual cockpit, is said to deliver an unrivalled driver experience and both features come as standard on the Q3.
Compared with its predecessor, the new car has grown in virtually all dimensions, boasting a size of 4.485 metres long, 1.856 metres wide, and 1.585 metres high, offering the customer considerably more knee room, head room, and elbow room.
The increased room in the luggage compartment, which has an electric tailgate as standard, now totals 530 or 675 litres in size depending on the position of the rear seats and backrests.
The car also has a cutting-edge infotainment system and offers the same advanced technical functions as seen in Audi’s premium segments. Its top-of-the-line navigation system recognises the driver’s preferences based on previous journeys, allowing it to generate suitable route suggestions, along with traffic information, a point-of-interest search function and information on parking spaces and filling stations.
It also comes, as standard, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, bringing your smartphone apps onto the MMI. The Audi Q3 is even more tightly integrated with the myaudi app, with seamless connection to the driver’s smartphone and Audi ecall.
On the engine front the car will be available with both petrol and diesel units, in combination with either front-wheel or quattro drive.
