The ultimate all-rounder. All grown up.
The ultimate all-rounder. All grown up.
It will come as no surprise that the new Audi Q3 combines luxury, sportiness and intuitive connectivity. It always has. But now it’s matured in dimension and design to become a more spacious, modern version of its best self. All grown up and out to prove that everyday performance should be anything but routine.
Maneuverable in town, agile on country roads, balanced on the highway – the suspension on the Audi Q3 offers a wide spread. The new SUV takes bumpy roads with ease – thanks also to the longer wheelbase. As an option, the driver can vary the characteristics of the Audi Q3 depending on the driving situation, road conditions or personal needs using the Audi drive select dynamic handling system. It offers six profiles – from markedly comfortable, highly efficient through to out-and-out sporty. The format of the aluminum wheels ranges from 17 and 18 inch – depending on the exterior trim – up to 20 inch in diameter, the latter from Audi Sport GmbH and fitted with size 255/40 tires.
The operating and display concept of the family SUV has been overhauled from the ground up – Audi has done away with the analog instruments. Even with the standard MMI radio there is a digital instrument cluster with a 10.25 inch screen diagonal, which the driver operates using the multifunction steering wheel. With MMI radio plus, the first option level, customers can upgrade the instrument cluster as an option to the Audi virtual cockpit with additional functions. It incorporates, for instance, the MMI functions and, in addition to road and engine speed, also displays information on music tracks and Audi connect services.
The new Audi Q3, which is based on the Volkswagen Group’s modular transverse matrix, has grown in virtually all dimensions and is positioned in the upper compact SUV segment. It is 4,485 millimeters long, making it 97 millimeters longer than its predecessor. In terms of width, it has grown 25 millimeters to 1,856 millimeters, but at 1,585 millimeters is 5 millimeters flatter than the first-generation Q3. Its wheelbase, which has been stretched 77 millimeters to 2,680 millimeters is much more spacious – knee room, headroom and elbow room are even larger.
Eye-catcher and everyday companion – the Audi Q3 Sportback combines the aesthetics and emotionality of a coupé with the power and functionality of an SUV. The large infotainment and connectivity offer, as well as the extensive standard equipment, ensure a great deal of driving pleasure.
Self-confident, extroverted, and sporty – this is the Audi Q3 Sportback. The front is dominated by the large single-frame grill with octagon design and the lateral air intakes. The coupé-like silhouette is clearly visible in the side view. The long, elegant shoulder line forms the dynamic basic shape of the vehicle and emphasises the sportiness. Characteristic of the rear are the flowing sloping roof line, the low rear window, and the sharply cut rear lights. Thanks to our flexible equipment line concept, you can individualise the exterior according to your wishes. Your Audi Q3 Sportback will be delivered with bumpers in contrasting paintwork, 19-inch wheels in 5-arm dynamic design, and illuminated door sills with front aluminium inserts and S lettering.
In the Audi Q3 Sportback, you can experience our latest infotainment generation directly from the luxury class. The Audi Virtual Cockpit's 12.3-inch HD display shows razor-sharp animations and provides you with relevant vehicle information. You control the MMI infotainment system with MMI Navigation plus and MMI touch via a 10.1-inch display in the centre console. Thanks to various interfaces and connections, you can connect your mobile devices to the vehicle. Take advantage of the wide range of services offered by Audi connect.**
In order to offer you the greatest possible driving pleasure, we have equipped the Audi Q3 Sportback as standard with some technologies that increase the dynamics on the road: The sports suspension provides good traction. Progressive steering offers direct steering response – for example on winding country roads and when turning. The Audi “drive select” driving dynamics system allows you to influence the vehicle characteristics using six different modes. In addition to the engine and transmission set-up, the system influences the optional electronically adjustable shock absorbers and steering assistance. We offer the 169 kW (230 hp) 2.0-litre TFSI engine.
We don’t want to just arrive. We want to get something started. We don’t want to follow trends, but do our own thing. And in the right vehicle – a new, compact high-performance SUV: the Audi RS Q3. Everyday usability meets a coupe-like silhouette with athletic design. Athletic design meets high suitability for everyday use. The legendary 2.5-litre TFSI engine combined with quattro all-wheel drive ensures driving pleasure. Ready to go?
Thanks to its independent design language, the new Audi RS Q3 impresses with visible performance. The coupe-like downward-sloping roof line lends the SUV form a distinctive silhouette. Its performance is clear to see, starting from the front: The RS bumper combined with the gloss black Single frame gives the front end a dynamic appearance. Moving to the side, the rising shoulder line and 10 mm flared wheel arches create a muscular feel. Its optional 21-inch alloy wheels are unusual for this model class. And finally, the rear of the Audi RS Q3 finishes strong, featuring the RS-specific bumper with rear diffuser and horizontal blades plus the RS-specific roof edge spoiler.
Everything about the Audi RS Q3 is moving forward. Controls such as the standard MMI touch display are oriented toward the driver. The standard Audi virtual cockpit plus, provides high-resolution information, featuring a fully digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster with RS-specific design and full HD resolution, shift light display and other special RS displays – fully adjustable to the driver’s needs, showing for example speed, revs, acceleration, power output or torque.
With the legendary 2.5-litre TFSI engine and its five cylinders, every drive becomes an adventure. And every curve a sensation – thanks to the standard RS sport suspension, which is 10 mm lower than on the basic model. Damper control improves driving dynamics and directional stability, and also ensures better handling and comfort. To precisely set the direction, the Audi RS Q3 comes with RS-specific, adjusted progressive steering. Reversing was given due consideration as well: with the standard RS steel brake system with optional brake calipers in red or the optional ceramic brakes with calipers in gray, red or blue.
A deeply rising shoulder line and a flat sloping roof line lead into the characteristic rear of the Audi RS Q3 Sportback. Typical RS-specific elements contribute to the overall athletic design of the compact SUV coupé crossover. Under the hood, the 2.5-litre TFSI engine generates 294 kW (400 hp).
Performance radiates from every angle of the Audi RS Q3 Sportback. At the front, the RS bumper in conjunction with the gloss black single frame are immediately recognizable. The particularly flat sloping roof line and the deep shoulder line visually lower the centre of gravity of the body. Moving to the side, its muscular 10 mm flared wheel arches are a real eye-catcher. Its optional 21-inch alloy wheels are unusual for this model class. The rear of the Audi RS Q3 Sportback finishes strong, featuring the RS-specific bumper with rear diffuser and horizontal blades plus the RS-specific roof edge spoiler. The low rear window makes the vehicle look particularly wide.
