      About Audi Q3

      Summary

      The Audi Q3 was introduced to the Indian subcontinent back in 2012 and since then, it has been one of the highest selling Audi SUVs. Built on the MQB platform, the Audi Q3 received its midlife facelift in 2015 and has been updated again in 2017 before the arrival of the all-new Audi Q3 in 2018.

      The Audi Q3 competes in the entry-level luxury SUV segment with the Mercedes-Benz GLA, the BMW X1 and the Mini Countryman.

      Further to this, read Audi Q3 Road Test details by our expert.

      Exterior

      The Audi Q3 gets the typical Audi looks with the large hexagonal grille taking centre-stage with the chrome four-ring logo. The headlamps are styled like the A4 sedan and are now LED units with signature LED daytime running lamps. Amongst the entry-level premium luxury SUVs, the Q3 is the largest in its segment and the size is accentuated by the tall stance slightly flared wheel arches. The tail design is sleek with the elongated tail lamps are the minimal contours.

      Interior

      The interior is plush and is upholstered in leather. Panoramic sunroof is now standard along with three-zone climate control and an electric power steering. The Audi Q3 seats five and the light coloured cabin is spacious. The Q3 offers loads of boot space and the flat loading lip is convenient. The dashboard is functional and the design has been kept simple. It gets a waterfall centre console with the display screen for the infotainment system that is operated through the fob or the steering mounted controls. For safety, it has six airbags and an electronic stability program that uses traction control, ABS and EBD in sync to ensure that the car stays in control.

      Engine and gearbox

      Under the hood of the Audi Q3, you have the tried and tested 2.0-litre four cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that pumps out 180bhp of power for the all-wheel-drive models while it pumps out 150bhp for the 2WD cars. Both the setup come mated to a seven-speed automatic gearbox. Audi might bring in the petrol version of the Q3 as well with the new 1.4-litre TSI mill under the hood.

      Mileage

      The 1968 cc Diesel - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 15 kmpl in city and 17 kmpl on highways

      2015 Audi Q3 35 TDI Facelift Review

      If you are stuck in a car on an uneven terrain, chances are it doesn’t feature Quattro all wheel drive system, something that Audi cars boast of strongly. They not only offer a stronger potential to challenge any surface but also come with the best and modern features to make everyday driving an experience to cherish.

      Monetarily, Audi is doing fantastic business in India with its ever growing dealership network and a robust line up of vehicles which includes sedans, SUVs and high performance sports cars. Among these, the Q range of SUVs has been a major hit among Indian consumers with the range starter Q3 being the largest seller and also a leader in the compact SUV segment.

      2015 Audi Q3 Images 19

      The brand new arrival of Mercedes Benz GLA into the compact SUV space did create some buzz until it staunchly stood against the Audi Q3. To make sure this fight gets a spicy garnish, Audi recently suited the Q3 with a facelift and also gave it an interior uplift. What’s the real deal behind it? We reveal in our review. 

      Things haven’t changed drastically in this small lil SUV as it still looks more macho than the Mercedes Benz GLA and definitely more enthusiastic than the BMW X1. Audi has given it a mid life facelift and thus it gets certain modern elements but still maintains its earlier charm.

      2015 Audi Q3 Images 17

      At front, there is a crisper looking three dimensional single frame radiator grille sporting new edges around its shape with a contrasting brushed aluminium finish. The streamlined headlamps intrude this arrangement neatly. The fog lamp pockets too have got a new design except for a small change i.e. they no longer feature fog lamps as the headlight cluster gets LED day time running lamps. The creases and contours on the front make it look wider than before.

      To the side, everything remains same as before except for new 5 spoke 17 inch alloy wheels. These wheels maintain the edgy theme and look neat compared to the ones offered earlier. The side skirts get a minor change whereas other features and traits are carried over. The Q3 has always looked more appealing than its rivals because it is not a faux looking SUV with fake muscular additions, instead its overall shape and size is properly scaled down from bigger SUVs like the Q5 and even the Q7.

      2015 Audi Q3 Images 18

      There are sequential turn indicators which illuminate within two-tenths of a second at rear with new LED tail lamps, much like the ones offered in their flagship luxury and sport offerings. The rear bumper gets a new shape with a diffuser and chrome layered twin exhaust pipes. Also, buyers can avail the new Q3 in three brand new shades.

       

      Inside, the changes in the interiors make it feel more upmarket than before. The basic layout remains same but with the use of refreshing materials and new colour schemes, the interior trims feel more delightful.

      Here again the Q3 scores more over its rivals as it the cabin feels more airy and spacious. The interiors can be availed with optional dual tone beige and black or an all black trim. The wooden inlays have been substituted by 3D Aluminium tangent silver finished ones. Even around the automatic gear shift, there is a brushed aluminium surround. The same can be seen around AC vents.

      It feels as comforting as before as the seats come stitched in fine quality leather with enough all round support everywhere. Be it the lumbar support or the under thigh support, it scores high on all aspects. There is enough knee room for front occupants and so is the case with the rear passengers. The electrically adjustable front row seats can be arranged in the desired position with the best possible convenience.

      2015 Audi Q3 Photos 18

      It comes better kitted as Audi has added more features in the premium line Technology as well as lower variants. Making it more entertaining, there is a new Audi Sound system with a 20 GB Jukebox, which can save up to 4000 songs. To help you drive on unknown locations, there is a new MMI Navigation System which can be viewed on the popup 5.8 inch infotainment screen. It has to be manually tucked inside the dashboard, not like the cooler auto descending one seen in the A3. It is also equipped with 2 SDHC slots and Bluetooth for phone and entertainment.

      In terms of practicality, the Q3 has multiple storage options throughout the cabin. There is a smartphone cradle, under the central armrest, which makes use of the car’s antenna and boosts signal of the phone, very innovative indeed. The subtle updates on the multi information display and the infotainment screen has further improved the experience.

      The 2.0L TDI diesel motor has been further tuned for a more engaging experience making it a fun to drive SUV. In terms of numbers, it makes 177 hp and 380 Nm of torque, more than that of the GLA crossover. To ease up often shifts and also to give it an enthusiastic feel to the self driven class, there are paddle shifters neatly tucked behind the steering wheel.

      2015 Audi Q3 Images 22

      At the very crank, there is no typical clatter, unlike most other motors, and that is a very good thing. Work your thumb around the newly planted paddle shifters and the motor obediently takes commands. The best thing about this TDI motor is, it doesn’t need whipping on its buttock to get prancing and instead a subtle push on the throttle is just fine.

      The new Q3 also comes with Audi Drive Select with three settings. The comfort mode tackles the normal, less than perfect roads filled with undulations and uneven surfaces with softer settings while the auto mode does a seamless job of adjusting by itself depending on the condition around. It is the dynamic mode, my favourite, where you can throw the attire of well behaved for a more zesty driving style as the steering and throttle get tighter and aggressive to tackle bends and turns in the best way possible.

      2015 Audi Q3 Images 15

      Open the panoramic sunroof and the cabin gets lit by natural ambience, paired with the soft beige interiors, it is exactly the place to be. Your knees too enjoy the airy feel, especially if there were inside a coupeish crossover trying to be an SUV. The driver’s seat, with its proper positioning and a wide front screen, gives a proper judgement of the surrounding. To further aid easy manoeuvrability, parking plus with reverse camera comes as standard.

      There is one more thing that aids easy driving inside the city and that is its light steering. Have heard many criticise this trait, I am in favour of it as an SUV with a light steering is what one needs to quickly manoeuvre around that hatch or a sedan, parked irresponsibly in a lane. On highways, shift it to dynamic mode to bring more feel and there you are sorted for both conditions.

      2015 Audi Q3 Images 12

      Another impressive thing about the Q3 is the way it rides over uncomfortable surfaces. You might close your eyes in its rival crossover as soon as a pothole is spotted but in the Q3, the suspensions muscle up to take on anything thrown to it. The commanding stance of the Q3 on such circumstances is amazing. How I wish I could grill the Q3 more as Goa has few of those and more of fine roads. Having chosen Dynamic mode with thumbs on shifter pedals, it was absolute joy. The shell and the chassis behave in unison without creating an awkward movement and all of that is complimented by the smooth diesel motor paired with 7-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission.

      So what do we have here? A new SUV, which happily is not new in many aspects and that, is a good thing. The new design language, alloy wheels, sequential turn indicators, panoramic sunroof, modern in lays and a navigation system are convincing enough to take new Q3 seriously. About the not so new bits, they haven’t tinkered with the handling, ride quality, suspensions and it still comes with that marvellous of a small 2.0L TDI motor.

      2015 Audi Q3 Images 20

      To spell it our clearly, if you are planning to buy a premium line range starter ‘SUV’, the Q3 is the only one to fit the tag. The GLA, no doubt looks snazzier, cannot crawl above its crossover type whereas the present gen BMW X1 looks better in terms of performance but loses on the raw appeal of an SUV.

        I recently purchased Audi Q3 and am really happy with its performance. Before buying Q3, I was planning to purchase BMW X1 but I am quite pleased with latest compact Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) in Audi's domestic line-up. The car has excellent mileage which is hardly seen in the other premium SUV segment brands and keeps its running costs in check. Audi Q3 is the ideal premium car to be taken on the roads for a spin, which makes it one of the best options for me to use the car in my daily activities. Moreover, my diesel powered car allows me to race full throttle on the highways too. The power assisted multifunction steering wheel of Audi Q3 helps me to easily tackle the hassle of busy city traffic. Inside the cabin, I enjoy the plush feel of the car and have a lot of space despite small dimensions. Mileage of Audi Q3 I own the diesel version of Audi Q3 which delivers impressive fuel economy, thus making the car a perfect blend of decent output and unmatched mileage.
