The Audi Q3 is bigger, finally moves to the modern MQB platform, and has an attractive new design that’s kinda like a shrunken Q8.
The Q3 has rear seats which can move 150mm (5.9″) to increase trunk space or passenger room, and splits 40/20/40.
At launch the Q3 will be available with three gas and one diesel engines, all have four cylinders and turbocharging. Power goes from 110kW (150hp) to 169kW (230hp), and a 6-speed manual or 7-speed DCT is available.
FWD is present, but Quattro AWD is standard on some engines.
Available technology include Matrix LED headlamps, 10.25″ or 12.3″ digital cockpit screen, touchscreen MMI infotainment (8.8″ to 10.1″ depending on model), a 30 color ambient lighting package, satellite navigation, sport suspension, wheels up to 20″, and a 680W 15-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.
