The New Audi Q3

Introducing The Second-Generation Audi Q3

Audi have released details of the second-generation Audi Q3 that builds upon the success of the first-generation model with additional new specifications and features.

The Audi Q3 is a family-oriented SUV that is highly ergonomic, being able to effortlessly cater to the many demands required from it in style. These qualities have been amplified with the second generation with a more confident profile and greater utility thanks to the increased space capacity. There are also many adaptability and practical details that will make this SUV the ultimate family vehicle. It also features a digital cockpit, large MMI touch response infotainment system and new driver assistance systems.

One of the most notable updates to the exterior design is the singleframe octagon front grille and large side air inlets, creating a powerful front for the new Q3. The narrow headlights that run inwards are available in 3 different versions, all of which will feature LED technology. A wide range of customization options will be available, including a contrasting paint finish for lower body attachments.

The cabin has gotten a sportier character, with an instrument panel that has been divided into two-levels. The upperhalf contains the air vents, whereas the bottomhalf uses a black-panel octagonal area. This instrument panel echoes the Singleframe grille with a chrome strip that surrounds the entire panel, with high-gloss black panels surrounding the MMI touch display. Customers can choose between three different interior variants, these being the basic version, the Audi design selection and the S line package.

The Q3 has had its operating and display systems redesigned to be more fitting to the modern age. The analogue instruments have been replaced with a digital instrument cluster that uses a 10.25" display screen that can be controlled via the multifunction steering wheel. Q3 models that have MMI radio plus can opt to have the instrument cluster upgraded to an Audi Virtual Cockpit, which will give extra features such as engine speed, or infotainment and Audi Connect information.

All the driver assistance systems are receiving updates as well, in addition to new ones. For instance, the optionally available adaptive cruise control makes use of adaptive speed assist, traffic jam assist and active lane assist to improve occupant comfort on long journeys. Park assist is also included, which can manoeuvre the Q3 in and out of parking spaces.

The new Audi Q3 will be available with a choice of four new engines that use petrol or diesel as fuel with either front-wheel drive or quattro (all-wheel drive). All four of these new and efficient engines will make use of four-cylinder direct injection with turbocharging and manual or S tronic (automatic) transmission. In addition to the suspension being updated to deliver a more comfortable drive, the Audi drive select dynamic handling system has received improvements, offering 6 driving profiles that alters efficiency and comfortability.

Expected to arrive this year in November, the new Audi Q3 will -as standard- come with a digital instrument cluster, MMI radio w/ Bluetooth and LED headlights.
