The new Audi Q3
The Audi Q3 combines luxury, sportiness & connectivity. Now it’s more spacious and modern than ever. The famous SUV brings performance to your everyday routine.
Presence on New Zealand roads
The new Audi Q3 looks much sportier than ever. The Singleframe in octagon design and large side air inlets characterize the masculine front-end. Eight vertical bars divide up the radiator grille with its striking frame and reflect the SUV character. The headlights are narrow and run inwards with their wedge shape. All with LED technology. The shoulder line provides an athletic overall impression with strong muscles over the wheel arches. Audi’s quattro DNA makes the SUV seem even wider; the color-contrasting wheel arch trims emphasize the offroad look. Supported by a long roof edge spoiler, which also flanks the rear window at the side, the steeply raked D pillars of the body line also create an appearance of forward thrust.
Large and versatile
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. The electric tailgate provides effortless access to the luggage compartment.
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.
