Things You Ought to Know about the Audi Q3
The most important features you need to know about the premium Audi Q3.
The Audi Q3 was one of the firm’s first ventures into the flourishing crossover segment where it delivered a premium feel but at a slightly less-premium price. Brimmed with features, the Q3 has gone down a treat.
There’s a lot to talk about, so let’s take a look to see what the Q3 is all about.
It’s got plenty of high-end features
As you might expect from an Audi, the Q3 has loads of high-end touches. These include a large central infotainment screen that is seamlessly integrated into the dashboard, as well as Audi’s clear Virtual Cockpit display ahead of the driver.
You also get a multifunction steering wheel, allowing you to control the audio, change the cruise control settings and adapt the Virtual Cockpit display while on the move.
The raised ride height gives a good view of the road ahead
One of the main draws to a crossover is that they give a better view of the road ahead. That’s certainly the case with the Q3 as it brings a somewhat increased ride height over more regular hatchback models which in turn elevates your view out of the front.
For many people, this can be particularly confidence-inspiring.
There’s plenty of equipment included as standard
Even on base models, you’re able to make the most of a range of standard features on the Q3. These include LED headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels and a full navigation system with clear mapping.
If you’re after an even more premium-feeling Q3, then top-rung Vorsprung models bring 20-inch alloy wheels and high-performance Matrix LED headlights as standard, among other features.
You can have a high-performance RSQ3
If you’re after a Q3 with a little more punch, then look no further than the RSQ3. It packs the same 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that you’ll find in the RS3, kicking out considerable power - 393bhp, in fact.
It equates to a 0-60mph time of just 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 155mph - not bad for a compact crossover.
There’s a new plug-in hybrid version
If economy is more of your thing, then the Q3 TFSI e is likely to be right up your street. It makes use of a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine linked to an electric motor and batteries for a combined output of 242bhp - so it’s still more than brisk enough.
However, its real draw is where efficiency is concerned. It’ll do up to 37 miles of electric-only driving while returning up to 176.6mpg.
