2015 Audi Q3
Since its mart found in downfall 2011, the Q3 modelling serial has been a successful simulation for the Audi blade. But Audi is besides invariably up near and successful models. The new Audi Q3 and RS Q3 models not alone lineament a invigorated excogitation, they likewise self-praise a issue of expert innovations.
The locomotive card for the Audi Q3 comprises 3 TFSI units and 3 TDI scavenge diesel four-cylinder units. Supplanting ranges from 1.4 to 2.0 liters and yield from 88 kW (120 hp) to 162 kW (220 hp). All are turbocharged, direct-injection units and follow with the limits of the Euro 6 emanation touchstone. With the aid of advanced caloric direction, they apace accost operational temperature pursuit a frigidness beginning.
Compared with the premature modeling, operation is evening meliorate and CO2 emissions sustain been decreased by capable 17 pct (2.0 TDI manual FWD). The 1.4 TFSI COD and the 2.0 TDI strip diesel with 110 kW (150 PS) deliver the “extremist” badge as proofread of their sinful efficiency. Audi models with the discover append “radical” make scoop values in fire phthisis and emissions as the resultant of a considerable technical stimulation and are the virtually fuel-efficient automobiles in their section. The start-stop arrangement is stock with all variants. When braking, it deactivates the locomotive concisely earlier the car comes to a block.
ultra: the 1.4 TFSI COD
The 1.4 TFSI COD is an instance of Audi’s rightsizing scheme. Displacing scarce 1,395 cc (eager x virgule 74.5 x 80.0 millimeters [2.9 x 3.1 in]), it produces a potent 110 kW (150 hp) and 250 Nm (184.4 lb-ft) of torsion, which is uncommitted betwixt 1,500 and 3,500 rpm. Equipt with the manual transmitting, the Audi Q3 1.4 TFSI radical accelerates in 9.2 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) and reaches a top amphetamine of 204 km/h (126.8 mph).
2015 Audi Q3
With 17-inch tires optimized for fire expenditure, its NEDC phthisis is barely 5.5 liters per 100 Kilometers (42.8 US mpg), like to 127 grams CO2 per km (204.4 g/mi). With the optional six-speed S tronic, these values are 5.8 liters per 100 kilometers and 134 g CO2 per km (40.6 US mpg and 215.7 g/mi). The stock dash takes 8.9 seconds, and top swiftness is 204 km/h (126.8 mph).
The 1.4 TFSI COD, which with its al crankcase weighs scarcely more 110 kilograms (242.5 lb), features the extremely forward-looking cylinder on exact (COD) organization, which when goaded middling reduces fire uptake by capable 20 percentage. At low to centrist lading and locomotive hurrying, it deactivates cylinders two and ternary by shutdown the valves and closing off fire shot. The locomotive runs as a two-cylinder locomotive until the driver presses consume harder on the gun. The operational points in the participating cylinders are displaced toward higher oodles, increasing efficiency. The highly well-adjusted locomotive stiff rattling smoothen.
Sporty: the 2.0 TFSI
The 2.0 TFSI is useable in two variants, with legion technology features documenting Audi’s high-end competency. These admit the extra collateral injectant supplementing the organise shot of the FSI, the Audi valvelift organization to conform the valve separatrix on the tucker face and especially efficient thermic direction, which uses a circle valve faculty and an discharge multiplex merged into the cylinder psyche. Translation is 1,984 cc (aegir x solidus 82.5 x 92.8 millimeters [3.2 x 3.7 in]).
Level in the variant with 132 kW (180 hp) and 320 Nm (236.0 lb-ft), the latter ‘tween 1,400 and 3,900 rpm, the two-liter is a gaudy locomotive. In combining with the manual transmittal and front-wheel crusade (quattro all-wheel crusade), it accelerates the Audi Q3 in 8.3 (7.6) seconds from a impasse to highway hurrying (62.1 mph). Top swiftness is 217 km/h (134.8 mph). The 2.0 TFSI consumes on medium fair 6.7 (6.9) liters of fire per 100 kilometers (35.1 [34.1] US mpg) with 152  grams CO2 per km (244.6 [257.5] g/mi) (all values tentative). These like figures for the Q3 2.0 TFSI with seven-speed S tronic and quattro all-wheel crusade are 7.6 seconds, 217 km/h (142.84 mph), 6.5 liters per 100 kilometers (36.2 US mpg) and 149 g per kilometre (239.34g/mi).
The top rendering of the 2.0 TFSI produces 162 kW (220 hp), with 350 Nm (258.1 lb‑ft) of torsion uncommitted ‘tween 1,500 and 4,400 rpm. Might therein suit is transferred via a seven-speed S tronic and quattro perm all-wheel cause. The figures papers the transcendence of this combining of technologies: 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 6.4 seconds; top swiftness 233 km/h (144.8 mph); NEDC phthisis 6.6 liters per 100 kilometers (35.6 US mpg), like to 152 g CO2 per km (244.6 g/mi).
Highly efficient: the 2.0 TDI
The diesel engines are iii versions of the 2.0 TDI scavenge diesel, which Audi offers with assorted outputs. It displaces 1,968 cc (bore-hole x shot 81.0 x 95.5 millimeters (3.2 x 3.8 in) and features minimum inner rubbing. Among the technologies victimized are two equalizer shafts in the crankcase, a thermic direction organization with fork coolant pumps for the block and psyche, a park rails shot scheme with a max. force of 2,000 bar and a turbocharger with adjustable vanes. The cylinder psyche features a revolved valve maven. As a termination, the inlet and tucker valves look to be staged one bum the otc when viewed from the installation pipage connector. Apiece camshaft hence actuates one inspiration and one tucker valve per cylinder.
The 2.0 TDI scavenge diesel shares two former solutions with the 1.4 TFSI – the branch valve crusade faculty and the intercooler structured into the aspiration multiplex. A composite discharge ascendancy organisation enables compliancy with the Euro 6 received. N oxides are decreased in the particulate percolate, to which the compulsory SCR finish has been applied (SCR = selective catalytic simplification).
The 1.4 TFSI extremist is united by a especially effective radical variate of the 2.0 TDI locomotive. Weaponed with a manual transmittal and front-wheel effort, it produces 110 kW (150 hp) and 340 Nm (250.8 lb-ft). Speedup from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) takes 9.6 seconds, and top amphetamine is 204 km/h (126.8 mph). Fire ingestion is 4.4 liters per 100 kilometers (53.5 US mpg), a CO2 eq of 114 grams per km (183.5 g/mi).
The 2.0 TDI clean diesel with 110 kW (150 hp) and 340 Nm (250.8 lb-ft)
(‘tween 1,750 and 2,800 rpm) leave too be usable at launching with a quality of two versions of quattro all-wheel crusade: quattro all-wheel campaign and manual infection, and quattro all-wheel driving and seven-speed S tronic. The figures with manual contagion and S tronic, severally: 9.3/9.3 seconds, 204/204 km/h (126.8 mph), 4.9/5.1 liters per 100 kilometers (48.0/46.1 US mpg) and 129/132 grams CO2 per km (207.6/212.4 g/mi).
The about sinewy TDI in the Audi Q3 produces 135 kW (184 hp). Its torsion tableland of 380 Nm (280.3 lb-ft) extends from 1,800 to 3,250 rpm. Hither, too, Audi offers the ternary variants front-wheel driving and manual transmittance (tentative values), quattro all-wheel campaign and manual transmittal, and quattro all-wheel driving and seven-speed S tronic. The figures: 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 8.3/7.9/7.9 seconds; top speeding 219/219/219 km/h (136.1 mph); NEDC expenditure 5.0/5.2/5.1 liters per 100 kilometers (47.0/45.2/46.1 US mpg); CO2 emissions 131/137/134 grams per kilometre (210.8/220.5/215.7 g/mi).
The new Audi Q3 is useable with two unlike transmissions: the six-speed manual and the S tronic with either six or vii speeds. Their glower gears are sportily myopic, whereas the highest cogwheel is magniloquent to slenderize locomotive swiftness and fire intake. The manual contagion, which enables gentle and exact pitch changes with curt throws, has a specially whippersnapper mg causa.
Lightning-fast: the S tronic
The S tronic comprises two contagion sections configured likewise to a manual transmitting. The two multi-plate clench are ordered radially, one supra the over-the-counter. The big, outer K1 grasp transfers the locomotive’s mightiness via a unanimous dick to the gearing wheels for gears one, 3 and five-spot (in the vitrine of the seven-speed S tronic, to train seven-spot besides). A hole scape rotates about the firm lance. It is machine-accessible to the secondment, littler K2 grip, which controls the train wheels for the gears two, quadruplet and six, also as reverse.
Patch impulsive, just one transmitting segment is conjugate to the locomotive at any precondition metre, but both are continually dynamic. E.g., when the driver accelerates in third, the quaternary appurtenance is already occupied in the s transmittance subdivision. The shift operation takes berth by shift clench; this happens in barely a few hundredths of a s with no noticeable pause of propellent exponent. Paraphernalia changes are so immobile and smoothen as to be scantily obtrusive.
Audi Q3 drivers can manoeuver the contract dual-clutch contagion themselves exploitation the picker prise or the optional slip paddles on the wheel. Reflexive surgery offers a quality betwixt the modes S and D. If the Audi crusade choose dynamical manipulation organisation (banner with the lines conception and athletics) is set to efficiency style, the S tronic switches into harum-scarum style when coasting and allows the locomotive to laze in ordering to relieve fire.
Traction: quattro permanent all-wheel drive
quattro perm all-wheel campaign makes the squeeze bounty SUV fifty-fifty sportier, safer and more static. The spirit of this arrangement is the new fifth-generation, hydraulically-actuated, electronically-controlled multi-plate clench that debuted in the S1. To reach a more balanced axle freight dispersion, the clutches is situated on the end of the airscrew lance, before of the bottom axle derivative.
During rule impulsive, nearly of the locomotive’s might is sent to the breast wheels. If grip decreases thither, the multi-plate clasp can carry-over torsion steplessly to the bottom axle in upright a few milliseconds by forcing the packages of plates unitedly via controlled fulfil. A press source helps the galvanic ticker to break the oil pressing.
The flesh of the redesigned Audi Q3 combines spry treatment with sovereign refuge, and comp fine-tuning has enhanced consolation evening farther. The McPherson battlefront hiatus has 1,571 millimetre (61.9 in) cartroad. The depress wishbones and the subframe are made of bad and form al, severally – a root that greatly benefits the angle dispersion ‘tween the presence and bum axles. This is around 58:42; the precise proportion depends on the locomotive and drivetrain.
Straight tracking: the electromechanical steering
The rack-and-pinion exponent guidance uses a extremely effective galvanising centrifugal that ceaselessly reduces advance as amphetamine increases. The direction too deeds in co-occurrence with the optional Audi participating lane aid and common aid.
The four-link backside abatement has a racetrack of 1,575 (62.0 in), and equitable similar the presence hiatus includes a stabiliser bar. The tracking links immerse propelling and braking forces. Their bearings are comparatively big in the concern of rolled quilt. On the former manus, the 3 thwartwise links of apiece bicycle are stiffly united to the blade subframe; they are responsible fascinating sidelong forces. All links are made of high-strength steels; the bike carriers are aluminium.
With its eminent undercoat headway, the Audi Q3 likewise clay composed when determined off-road. With the S occupation mutant reprieve, which features tauter springs, dampers and bearings, the consistency is 20 millimeters (0.8 in) lour. It is usable on its own or as office of the S pipeline athletics bundle.
Personalized: Audi drive select
The Audi campaign prime dynamical treatment arrangement (criterion with the conception and mutant lines) allows the driver to transposition ‘tween the modes quilt, automobile, active and efficiency at the get-up-and-go of a clit. The arrangement accesses the gun and ability guidance. The optional modules S tronic and the bod with muffler ascendence can besides be incorporate into the scheme.
With the DCC (Active Form Controller) dampers, an electrically actuated relative valve regulates the flowing of oil into the plunger. A immobile estimator manages its role as reserve for the consideration of the route, the driver’s panache and the way selected in Audi effort take. A big cross-sectional allows for comfy wheeling; a diminished cross-sectional connects the car tightly to the route. Direction reaction becomes eventide more accurate; the particular stabilisation of the wheels makes self-steering and braking demeanour fifty-fifty more impersonal and rubber.
Up to 20 inches in diameter: the wheels
The card for the Audi Q3 comprises 16 models of wheels, including septet new ones. For virtually locomotive variants, sizing 6.5 J x 16 wheels with 215/65 tires are banner. The top models use the sizes 7 J x 17 and 235/55. The conception and play lines, too as the Audi scoop innovation box and the S pipeline mutation box including extra wheels measure 17 and 18 inches in diam. 19 and 20-inch wheels are optionally useable. All tires sport low pealing opposition, and a fatigue pressing indicant is touchstone.
The brakes brings the concordat agiotage SUV faithfully to a stopover. All locomotive variants sport vented forepart discs mensuration 312 millimeters (12.3 in) in diam. The developers increased the sizing of the self-colored discs on the arse axle of the new Audi Q3 from 282 to 300 millimeters (11.1 to 11.8 in). The electromechanical emergency is structured into the back brakes. The modish phylogeny of the ESC electronic stabilisation restraint is evening more raw and various.
Handling: torque vectoring
The Audi Q3 marks the offset meter that the criterion electronic stabilisation command (ESC) can be deactivated in two stages. An ESC off-road modality in the Q3 provides for optimum grip out-of-the-way. This adjusts sure functions, such as ABS and the electronic derivative operate (EDL), and the ascendancy part optimized for the coat.
The torsion vectoring, which is likewise qualification its Q-model unveiling in the Q3, has likewise been good updated. Low detrition values, such as those occurring on wet roadstead or hoodwink, are disposed lots greater retainer in the ascendancy scheme for front-wheel and quattro all-wheel campaign vehicles. This results in optimized treatment with uttermost trailing truth when cornering.
Earlier understeer can pass, delicately metered bracken torsion is applied unnoticeably to the privileged wheels. If superpower is beingness applied, the surplus torsion flows to the external bicycle. This redistribution of torsion results in more accurate turn-in in corners and shrewd aeroembolism. This expanded ESC functionality workings conjointly the multi-plate batch to understate understeer inside manipulation limits. Treatment olibanum becomes more accurate, spry and static.
When ESC is whole deactivated, sure stabilisation interventions – including torsion vectoring and the electronic derivative curl (EDL) rest alive in the involvement of accurate command of the fomite.
Helpful: trailer stabilization and hill-descent assist
Another utile boast is preview stabilisation. First always in Q-family vehicles, Audi has supplemented this with robotlike poke spying. Extraneous factors such as a shifted payload, face winds or odd route surfaces are victimized to find veering trailers more faithfully and rather. Targeted ESC braking interventions and locomotive torsion reductions are so exploited to steady the drone.
All versions of the Audi Q3 occur furnished with hill-start serve, which uses the electromechanical emergency. It holds the bracken insistence for a abbreviated meter afterwards the driver stairs off of the bracken cycle. The optional hill-descent serve controls the fastness of the compress agiotage SUV ‘tween 2 and 30 km/h (1.2 and 18.6 mph) when loss downward-sloping, and keeps it nearly unremitting on near any airfoil without block the wheels and without any treatment on the parting of the driver to assure a rubber bloodline.
The new Audi Q3 has a hard and positive route posture. The coupe-like roofline and sharp aslope D-pillars consecrate the silhouette an expressive and jazzy expression. As with its herald, the dimensions are constrict. The distance is 4,388 millimeters (14.4 ft); breadth 1,831 millimeters (6.0 ft); tallness (negative aerial) is 1,590 millimeters (5.2 ft): and the wheelbase 2,603 millimeters (8.5 ft).
High-and-mighty horizontal lines up breast and in the backside underline the breadth and piddle the Audi Q3 classifiable and expressive. The graven Singleframe grillwork is the shaping constituent of the strawman of the car. Its exaggerated top corners reach the headlights. In the redesigned bumper, honeycomb grilles and struts in the air intakes, which are framed by acute edges. A presence divider extends ahead downstairs the flatbed, centerfield consumption.
Another modify to the forepart are the fresh integrated headlights. Xe positive units with LED day working lights and all-weather lights are now received. Audi too offers LED headlights with a classifiable LED day sidelight form track approximately the headlamp. Therein edition, 27 especially energy-efficient light-emitting diodes render the light functions. Both headlights can be supplemented with the high-beam help.
The shaping factor when wake the Audi Q3 from the english is the streamlined, coupe-like, early-sloping cap that tapers into a flatbed D-pillar. On the soundbox of the fomite, aggressively raddled lines molding potently tight surfaces. The consistence to glasshouse proportion of two-thirds to third is distinctive of Audi’s showy designing speech. The twister business downstairs the windows forms an refined light-refracting sharpness, and the english sills are more salient. The bike wells are powerfully outlined; the cycle arches boldly set-back.
At the bottom, the sculptured, wrap-around tailboard – a feature boast of the Audi Q models – amplifies the sentience of breadth. An underbelly defend caps the backside of the bottom. The 2.0 TFSI with 162 kW (220 hp) has two offprint tailpipes on the odd and compensate; the over-the-counter locomotive variants deliver treble tailpipes on the leftover. All birth chromium-plate tips. Both the diffusor and the heavy, single taillights – another feature of the Q models – suffer been redesigned.
The taillights cum banner with halogen lamps, with LED engineering uncommitted as an pick. In combining with the LED headlights, the taillights likewise characteristic dynamical bit signals. Their someone light-emitting diodes are excited consecutive in blocks. The ignitor moves in the guidance the driver is turn, thence sending an evident betoken. The received adaptative stoplight pulses at a oftenness of foursome Cps and warns tracking drivers in the upshot of laborious braking.
New shades: paint finishes
New sunglasses birth launch their way to the colouring pallet of the redesigned Audi Q3: Hainan Amytal metal, Cuvée Eloquent metal and Utopia Amytal metal. These sum the touchstone finishes Cortina Tweed and Brainy Inkiness also as extra optional colours, such as Floweret Facile metal, Glacier Albumen metal, Misano Red bead core, Monsoon Gy metal, Mythos Lightlessness metal and Tundra Embrown metal. Audi offers the coloring Daytona Gray-haired drop burden at a toll savings in compounding with the S job fun software.
Thither is a prize of deuce-ace variants for the bicycle arches, the sill strips and the underbelly defend. These elements seed measure in blacken; they are ruined in a contrastive colour with the invention job and in the consistency coloration with the mutation cable. As outside features, both lines whirl undivided 17-inch wheels, the glossiness packet approximately the windows and anodized aluminium cap rail.
Thither are besides new equipment packages for the new Audi Q3: the S business mutant software and the S business outside box. The innovation demarcation with the Audi sole excogitation software and the Audi undivided outside designing parcel is debuting with the establish of the Q3. All of the packages admit dissimilar combinations of features such as particular doorway introduction sills, a stainless cargo sill shielder, and 17 and 18-inch wheels. With the Audi undivided outside pattern packet, the sills on the soundbox suffer a alone aspect; with the S cable outside box, the bumpers and diffusor characteristic a exceptional figure.
The consistency of the Audi Q3 is the introduction for the balanced manipulation, the tranquility cabin and condom. Advisement about 300 kilograms (661.4 lb), it plays a major use in the jackanapes building conception for the press agiotage SUV. The Audi Q3 1.4 TFSI has a check angle (without driver) of equitable 1,385 kilograms (3,053.4 lb).
Lightweight construction: hot-shaped steel and aluminum
Top-hole the materials pyramid are hot-shaped steels. They are kickoff het in a furnace to more 900 degrees Celsius (1,652.0 degrees Fahrenheit) so cooled to approximately 200 degrees Celsius (392.0 degrees Fahrenheit) in a water-cooled pressure die. This alter in temperature makes them highly hard. They demand comparatively cut palisade heaviness and are consequently jackanapes. Fashioning up 13 percentage of the personify, hot-shaped steels are the gumption of the resident cellphone. They are ill-used in the conversion to the front, at the core burrow, in great areas of the ceiling build, for the inner sills and for the B-pillars.
The locomotive cap and wrap-around tailboard of the Audi Q3 are made of al. They press sole 8.8 and 10.8 kilograms (19.4 and 23.8 lb), severally – nigh 50 pct less than comparable parts of nerve tack. The locomotive cap is secured to the personify by two releases. This enables a designing with comparatively low tack thicknesses yet gamy geometric stableness.
Crookedness rings in the are of the backside seating and the tailboard hatchway pee meaning contributions to rigor and vibrational comforter. Bulkheads and creases dissolve enceinte cavities and sweetheart great rag metallic surfaces. Advanced gaskets cavort the doors and windows.
Audi likewise offers an acoustical windscreen with a noise-damping average movie as an selection. Darkness seclusion glazing is uncommitted for the behind windows.
The redesigned Audi Q3 is too state-of-the-art when it comes to peaceful condom. In the issue of a frontage hit, the subframes of the strawman axle, the longitudinal members and two extra members below the fenders dispel push. If the early fomite byzantine in the hit comes from the face, the ultra-high-strength B-pillars propose great aegis. Two cross-members reward the storey construction. The longitudinal members occupy push in the result of a rear-end hit.
The covenant agiotage SUV comes stock with two presence airbags, thorax-pelvis english airbags in the backs of the forepart seating and drape nous airbags. Pyrotechnical rap tensioners up movement, bash strength limiters, Isofix minor ass fastening points in the ass and the structured Audi headrest organization round the software. Bum english airbags are useable as an pick.
The fundament edition of the Audi Q3 boasts a haul coefficient of 0.32 and has a facade ar of 2.44 m2 (26.3 sq ft). The low airlift at the axles ensures beneficial constancy at highschool fastness. The heavy pamperer supra the ass windowpane extends the cap shape by 32 centimeters (12.6 in). Two aero strips to the odd and compensate of the windowpane mannikin sidelong freebooter lips. Many extra eubstance details impart to the dear aeromechanics and aeroacoustics. A formative underbelly lining provides for streamlined airflow, and chilling air flows most loss-free done the locomotive compartment.
The jazzy designing lyric of outside carries o’er into the midland of the redesigned Audi Q3. The wrap-around, a lineament from the great Audi example serial, is an refined arc ‘tween the presence doors beneath the windscreen. The all-embracing essence comfort is crooked and fain toward the driver.
Comfortable: the seats
The measure strawman seating are height-adjustable. Audi volition raise these upon quest with exponent lumbar supports, buns heat and ability adjustments. The mutant seating (measure from variation cable upward and with the Audi sole pattern box) lineament distance and pitch-adjustable cushions.
Well wrought and upholstered, the back seating propose a cheerily just seats place. Their brain restraints can be lowered far decent so as not to mar the aspect in the rearview mirror. The stepless threshold michigan are selfsame helpful when acquiring in or out. Hard-nosed entrepot is uncommitted at every bum and Audi likewise offers a especial repositing bundle.
Clear: steering wheel and displays
Thither are legion direction wheels from which to opt contingent the shave contrast and innovation software – with 3 or quartet spokes, with unlike coverings and contrastive sewing, with multi-function buttons and with switching paddles. The mostly, intelligibly pronounced dial instruments bum the wheel can be study rapidly and safely. Situated in the battleground ‘tween them is the optional driver entropy scheme (DIS) with ovalbumin or coloration exhibit (banner with mutant and figure). One of its functions is the efficiency broadcast, which gives the driver tips for effective impulsive; another is the residual passport purpose.
The bounty quality of the Audi Q3 is manifested in every point of the internal. Distinctive examples are the 6.5 or 7.0-inch reminder (touchstone with MMI tuner and supra). It is sunken into the board. When you tap on its top sharpness, it glides upwardly with a appease, brace move. A high-gloss nigrify build encircles the cover.
Even more polish: fine interior details
The update brought a figure of new touches to the inner of the concordat agiotage SUV. New chromium-plate clasps now invest areas such as the interface for the MMI wireless or pilotage scheme. The sportsman job comes stock with cosmetic inlays in Micrometallic flatware. The alternatives, approximately of which are included in the designing lines and packages, grasp from al Tan smooth-spoken or bronzy to walnut, softly lacquer and lustrelessness fleecy al.
The mall armrest, the threshold panels and ass covers are uncommitted in six colours – lightlessness (too in S occupation play box), chestnut browned, lapidate greyness, pistachio ecru, chennai brownish (besides in Audi undivided innovation bundle) and rotor grey (optional in S pipeline sportsman bundle). The client can prefer upholstery in a bit of fabrics and the leathers Milano, Mulct Nappa and Ivory Nappa, the latter in combining with Alcantara or fabric. Another choice is the overtone leather box.
Variable: the luggage compartment
The Audi Q3 offers plenteousness of distance in the trunk because the impact absorbers, which are offprint from the constrict spiral springs, are far to the external in the eubstance. Touchstone capacitance is 460 liters (16.2 cu ft), and with the seatbacks folded consume 1,365 liters (48.2 cu ft). The new extensile trunk blanket is as pragmatic as it is commodious. Audi likewise offers a might tailboard as an selection. If the client logical the gadget key, the tailboard has two buttons. One closes the tailboard piece the over-the-counter so locks the full car.
The trunk comes touchstone with quartet flagellation points. Extra options, such as two maulers, a pocket-size supplementary entrepot compartment, a two-sided trunk base, a two-sided coldcock mat and a trunk bundle, permit many items to be transported safely. Another pick is the through-loading adeptness, which can be supplemented with ski/snowboard bag. The optional drone incumbrance has a swiveling orchis cervix. The Audi Q3 has a uttermost towing capacitance of capable two metrical loads, contingent the locomotive.
Individual and helpful: Audi Genuine Accessories
The Audi Actual Accessories ambit includes carriers for bikes, skis, kayaks and otc sports equipment, addition a foldaway rider ass for transporting farseeing items. A new merchandise is the Q3 encampment bivouac, which can be ready in proceedings and buttoned to the fomite’s spread tailboard. One someone with nada more an air heart can fix the full encamp in upright tercet transactions.
Another quadruplet proceedings is all it takes to colligate the encamp to the Q3 via the clear back concoct. The fomite inside/trunk and the camp can be ill-used simultaneously. This makes unpleasant activities such as consignment and unloading during inclemency importantly more pleasant. The Q3 encampment bivouac is likewise suited for gravelly upwind. Secured to the background with octonary tenting pegs, it can hold winds of capable 70 km/h (43.5 mph). The camp is modular, comprising the principal encamp, a mosquito-proof intimate encamp, encamp story, sun specter and a car-specific connective kit for the tailboard. All of the modules are dissociable. It bequeath be useable in previous 2014 with prices start at 1,390 euros.
Infotainment and Audi connect
Audi offers a modular stove of docudrama components for the new Audi Q3. The banner Audi tuner offers a CD effort, an Aux-in connexion and octet speakers. The MMI tuner – the kickoff optional faculty – features the MMI operational logic from the prominent Audi simulation serial. The fold-out colour proctor with 6.5-inch exhibit, a retentivity plug-in subscriber and an sound radio with form diverseness are stock hither.
The MMI tuner can be combined with the optional connectivity parcel, including piloting scheme training. The client can trip the scheme at any metre; the pilotage information are stored on an SDHC carte. The connectivity packet besides includes a Bluetooth port and the Audi euphony port (AMI) for the soft connective of a fluid participant. The pilotage software is another alternate oblation the like subject, but with the pilotage role already excited.
Intuitive: MMI navigation plus
At the top of the docudrama reach is MMI piloting addition. Its circular pushbutton can be rocked alike a stick, which makes many functions eve more commodious. The 7.0-inch admonisher displays the art and the pilotage map in 3D. The heavy platter can shop 20 GB of medicine information. Two lineup readers, the Audi medicine port (AMI), a Bluetooth port and a DVD driving round the comp listing of equipment.
The saint accompaniment to MMI pilotage asset is Audi join including car headphone, which connects the Audi Q3 to the Cyberspace. Passengers can use the incorporated to WiFi hotspot to breaker or email, spell the driver can love the bespoke services from Audi tie. These admit the web radiocommunication Audi medicine flow, on-line dealings data, and seafaring with Google World and Google Street Panorama.
Audio experience: the sound systems
Hi fans can select betwixt two vocalize systems – the Audi phone systems and the Bose beleaguer vocalize organisation. With the sec scheme, a ten-channel, 465 w amplifier drives 14 speakers, including a subwoofer. It uses a mike to psychoanalyze intrusive noises and adjusts playback consequently. If MMI piloting positive is aboard, the arrangement can regurgitate 5.1 environment phone. The top-of-the-line scheme is besides a optical dainty thanks to the frames of the deep/mid-range speakers in the doors, which manakin graceful rings of whiteness spark.
Subsidiary components admit a six-disc CD modifier, a threefold wireless for digital wireless response, a digital TV wireless and the Audi earphone box. With the MMI tuner and supra, a extremely conciliatory Almost bus (Media Orientated Systems Ecstasy) is put-upon to net all of these documentary modules. The controllers are staged in a gang and interrelated victimization fibre-optic cables.
Driver assistance systems
The help systems are encourage testimonial to the particular billet the Audi Q3 occupies in the squeeze agio SUV section. The subaltern hit bracken aid is criterion. It prevents the car from wheeling in an uncontrolled style or causation a junior-grade hit next a clangoring.
The optional Audi english help activates at speeds supra 30 km/h (18.6 mph). Two radiolocation sensors at the bottom of the car discover what is sledding on ass it. If thither is a fomite in the dim billet or chop-chop coming from the back, a chickenhearted LED index in the international mirror’s trapping lights up.
