While some value function over form, wise drivers demand the best of both worlds. The 2018 Audi Q3 manifests the key qualities that the best luxury subcompact SUV should have: smooth performance, a lavish interior and intuitive protection.
Noteworthy performance and smooth handling
Both trim levels of the Q3 come with a 2.0-liter TFSI® engine and a six-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission. This powertrain produces 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque, which should suit daily drives and road trips through the hills. The Audi Drive Select System provides three different settings — Comfort, Auto and Dynamic — that modify the steering and throttle response depending on your needs. Stable handling and a smooth driving experience will keep passengers happy on long drives.
The 2018 Audi Q3 cabin caters to refined tastes with sumptuous details throughout. Leather upholstery allies with a leather-wrapped shift knob and your choice of Aluminum Satellite or Balsamic Brown Walnut Wood inlays. A panoramic sunroof provides outdoor views during the drive, while dual-zone automatic climate control helps keep front seat and back seat passengers comfortably warm or cool, depending on the weather.
Advanced safety technology
Each Audi Q3 provides standard and available modern driver assist features to boost your confidence behind the wheel. The rearview camera and parking system employs acoustic sensors to detect nearby vehicles and objects, while the camera extends the driver’s line of vision when backing up the vehicle. Upgrade to the Premium Plus trim to take advantage of the Audi side assist system. This technology uses optical warnings and radar sensors to notify the driver of vehicles or other obstructions located in blind spots.
Take your family commutes to the next level when you drive an Audi Q3. Just be forewarned — you might leave economy vehicles behind and never turn back.
