The Audi Q3 Sportback stands for strength and precision to an equal degree, and reflects this in all design details. The grille of the octagonal Singleframe is strongly three-dimensional in design, and this makes it particularly sporty. The coupé-like passenger cabin acts as a contrast to the distinctive attachments, which are painted in contrasting colors and thus emphasize the SUV character. As a result, the Audi Q3 Sportback appears much longer than its sister model Q3. In addition, the SUV-coupé is almost three centimeters flatter, and thus has a more muscular appearance. Many light and shadow effects arise on the plastic-formed rear.
The latest Audi model offers driving fun on various terrains. In the city, on long-haul routes, or on easy terrain – the compact crossover is a dynamic all-rounder. It features progressive steering, whose gear ratio becomes increasingly direct as the steering angle increases.
For the market launch in the UAE, the Q3 Sportback is offered with the most powerful powertrain, the 2.0 TFSI quattro engine with S tronic gear box. The electronic management of the quattro all-wheel drive offers outstanding stability and strong traction with a high level of driving enjoyment.
The compact SUV is 4.50 m long, 1.84 m wide and 1.56 m high; its wheelbase measures 2.68 m. This results in a large and highly variable interior. In the dark, the optional contour/ambient lighting package offers numerous lighting preferences with its 30 selectable colors.
The operating and display concept proves how Audi is pushing ahead with digitalization: Even the basic equipment includes a digital instrument cluster with a 10.25-inch screen diagonal, which the driver operates using the multifunction steering wheel. The content of the smartphone is shown in the MMI display via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, and no cables are required if the top infotainment system is used with an iPhone.
The Audi Q3 Sportback comes with the lane change warning and park assist for safety:
Thelane change warning points out critical situations when changing lanes, such as if there is a vehicle in the blind spot. The park assist automatically guides the car into and out of parking spaces. If, for example, the driver wants to back out of an entrance, the rear cross traffic assist warns about approaching vehicles that the system classifies as critical.
