October 27, 2019 – Audi Abu Dhabi and Al Ain have announced the launch of the all-new Audi Q3 model at their showrooms. More striking, roomier and more versatile, the all-new Audi Q3 offers technical refinements from the full-size segment and a further developed suspension for enhanced driving dynamics with even more comfort.
The new Audi Q3 is a premium SUV with great all-round talents. Boasting a new, sportier design – with the striking Single-frame in octagonal design, large air inlets and strong muscles over the wheel arches – the compact SUV has also grown in virtually all dimensions. The uniquely spacious nature of the new Q3 takes it to a whole new level of practicality and flexibility. It is 4,484 millimeters long, 1,849 millimeters wide and 1,585 millimeters high. Its wheelbase, which has been stretched by 77 millimeters, offers lots of space. At the same time the Q3 is extremely versatile – thanks to the adjustable rear seats and height-adjustable loading floor along with numerous storage compartments. Depending on the position of the rear seats and backrests, the luggage compartment capacity is between 530 and 1,525 liters.
Combining good all-round visibility with a sporty seating position, the new Q3 offers the same comfort as the next larger vehicle category. The operating and display concept of the premium SUV has been overhauled from the ground up, with even the entry-level model boasting a digital instrument cluster with smartphone interface allowing Apple Car Play and Andriod Auto. The extensive infotainment is all controlled via a 10.1-inch touchscreen display in the center console which, together with the air conditioning controls, is tilted ergonomically toward the driver.
Mark Austin, General Manager at Ali & Sons, commented: “The new Q3 combines powerful, dynamic design with practicality and innovation, providing not only a sporty and spacious ride but also the impressive digital experience our customers have come to expect from the brand with Four Rings. Its abundant space and comprehensive adaptability allow greater utility and we are excited to welcome the next generation Q3 for people to experience firsthand.”
The new Audi Q3 enters the UAE market with 35 and 40 TFSI engines. It features the cylinder on-demand system, which switches off the second and third cylinder temporarily at low and medium loads, thus helping reduce fuel consumption in combination with the seven-speed S-tronic transmission.
Three stylish trim line variants are available to give UAE customers even more opportunities to personalize their preferences. The entry version comes with 17-inch alloy wheels and a high gloss package. The advanced version gives the customer 18” alloy wheels as standard, specific bumpers and contrast painting (full body paint available as an option) and an interior featuring a sporty aluminum trim.
