Audi’s third Q model – the Audi Q3 – will cost from £24,560 when UK order books open in June, ahead of deliveries in November.
Two diesel and two petrol engines will be offered – 2.0-litre TFSI in 168bhp and 208bhp guises and 2.0-litre TDI engines with either 138bhp or 175bhp – all of which feature stop-start as standard.
For the entry-level petrol and diesel variants, power is transferred via a six-speed manual gearbox. The more powerful versions get the seven-speed S tronic transmission.
Initially, the 2.0-litre TDI 140PS unit will power the front-wheel-drive model only at launch, with deliveries of that car hitting showrooms one month later than the rest of the range.
Externally, the Q3 gets 17-inch alloys and aluminium roof rails, as well as rear parking sensors as standard. On the inside, the cabin features dual-zone climate control, retractable display screen, Bluetooth, iPod connectivity and light and rain sensors.
For an additional £2750, customers can upgrade to the S-line specification – SE is standard – which adds 18-inch alloys, enhanced exterior styling, and xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lamps and LED rear tail lights.
Prices for the new Audi Q3 rise to £31,360 for the top-spec 2.0-litre TFSI Quattro with 208bhp mated to the 7-speed S tronic ’box.
