The all-new, second-generation Audi Q3 is about to make its way into the Philippines and you could be the first to see the latest addition in Audi’s local line-up at Power Plant Mall, Rockwell, Makati City from November 8-10, 2019.
Many design cues from the Audi Q8 flagship SUV were applied to the all-new Q3’s sheet metal. As such, it gets a bold and sharp front end, featuring vertical grille bars wrapped in an octagonal Singleframe grille. Sleek LED headlights flank the car’s bold front grille, which is surrounded by a satin chrome finish. Meanwhile, a character line likewise finished in satin chrome trim runs along the width of the front end–a design trait that eschews its predecessor’s conservative shape. At the back, the rear fascia is more sculpted than its predecessor and features an LED taillight design that mimics the LED daytime running lights up front. The Q3 slightly grows in size, too, being 96.5 mm longer and having a 76 mm longer wheelbase compared to its predecessor.
Like the exterior, the Q3’s interior has also been completely redesigned, with better materials and finishes. All variants are equipped as standard with Audi’s Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster, which in the Q3’s case is a 12.3-inch screen that replaces the analog gauges. Working together with the Virtual Cockpit is Audi’s MMI infotainment system, which is the same touch-screen based version from the Audi A8 and Q8 flagships. It utilizes a 10.1-inch touch screen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.
Under the hood of the all-new Q3 is a 1.4-liter, inline-four turbocharged gasoline engine that delivers 150 hp and 250 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via a 7-speed S-Tronic dual-clutch transmission.
In terms of safety and driver-assist features, the all-new Q3 is fitted with electronic stability control, electronic parking brake with auto hold, hill descent control, park assist with parking aid plus and a rear-view camera.
All these features make the all-new Q3 an award-winning vehicle as it achieved a five-star rating in the Euro New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). It has also received the USA’s Insurance Institute of Highway Safety’s (IIHS) Top Safety Pick Plus rating wherein the Q3 was rated “Good”, the highest rating a car can achieve in the test. The Q3 has also been named Readers’ Choice of “Best Cars 2019” by German technical magazine Auto Motor und Sport.
