BOLSTER: Audi’s updated Q3
Audi’s refreshed Q3 will boast a new 1.4litre TFSI engine option and a comprehensive new S Line Plus specification, it has been revealed.
Priced from £23,870 to £28,115, the SUV will be capable of hitting 0-62mph in up to 8.9seconds, while offering fuel economy of 47.9mpg.
The new 150PS 1.4litre TFSI becomes the entry point to the Q3 lineup as an alternative to the 140PS 2.0litre TDI model, and shares its exclusively front-wheel-driven configuration.
It can be paired with manual or S Tronic transmission.
Meanwhile, a new S Line Plus specification slots into the line-up above the S Line, at a £2,350 premium.
The trim sports 19inch ‘five segment spoke’ wheels, privacy glass, perforated leather and Alcantara mix interior, cruise control, Audi parking system plus and SD card-based satellite navigation.
Xenon Plus headlights, exclusive S Line body styling, light and rain sensors, front sports seats with powered lumbar support, the Audi Music Interface, Bluetooth and voice control are also standard.
Both versions are equipped with comfort-oriented ‘dynamic suspension’, but both also offer the no-cost option of S Line sports suspension if preferred.
