Modern life is a balancing act. And the new Audi Q3 juggles it all in style, with a more spacious interior, enough SUV road presence to inspire confidence and a compact design to handle city driving. Add to that advanced connectivity, a host of cutting-edge assistance systems and a new muscular silhouette, and the new Q3 makes getting it right look effortless.
The optional Audi connect module offers a wide array of features. They range from navigation with Google Earth and Google Street View to traffic information online and social media such as twitter which have been specially prepared for use in the car.
Optionally top extras include the two-zone air conditioning, the auxiliary heating, the heated steering wheel and the panoramic glass sunroof.
The format of the aluminum wheels ranges from 17 and 18 inch – depending on the exterior trim – up to 20 inch in diameter.
Exclusive touches on the special edition model include the Audi rings in the Singleframe and the model designation on the rear finished in black.
Optionally the new Audi Q3 features Matrix LED headlights whose adaptive high beam intelligently illuminates the road.
Depending on the position of the rear seats and backrests, the luggage compartment capacity totals 530 or 675 liters (18.7/23.8 cu ft).
With the backrests folded down the figure rises to 1,525 liters (53.9 cu ft).
Away with the analog instruments: Even with the standard MMI radio there is a digital instrument cluster with a 10.25 inch screen diagonal. With MMI radio plus, the first option level, customers can upgrade the instrument cluster as an option to the Audi virtual cockpit with additional functions.
Great sound experience: The Bang & Olufsen Premium Sound System with virtual 3D sound provides three-dimensional audio in the new Audi Q3.
As an option, the driver can vary the characteristics of the Audi Q3 depending on the driving situation, road conditions or personal needs using the Audi drive select dynamic handling system.
The electric tailgate provides effortless access to the luggage compartment. In conjunction with the convenience key, it can also be opened and closed with a kicking motion.
Forward thrust appearance: the color-contrasting wheel arch trims emphasize the offroad look. Supported by a long roof edge spoiler, which also flanks the rear window at the side, the steeply raked D pillars of the body line a dynamic optic.
Pure baggage space
Total storage space
The interior of the new Q3 is a combination of luxury, sportiness and intuitive design. The wheelbase has been stretched by 77 millimetres meaning it is much more spacious than its predecessor. In typical SUV fashion, the Q3 is easy to get into and offers good all-round visibility and a sporty seating position. The luggage compartment capacity can hold between 530 and 675 litres. With the backrests folded down this figure rises to 1,525 litres. Click the button below to find out more.
Full of intelligent technologies, the operating system and display concept of the new Q3 has been overhauled from the ground up, with the analog dials being replaced with a 10.25 inch digital display. Central to this new design is the new 10.1 inch MMI touch display. Firmly rooted in the digital world, the Audi virtual cockpit is also available. This 10.25 inch screen incorporates the MMI functions and, in addition to showing your speed, can also display information such as music tracks and Audi connect services. The display can also be configured to show navigation, with the map appearing directly in your field of view. Click the button below to find out more.
Easy to drive in town, agile on country roads, balanced on the motorway – the new Q3 is high adaptable. The Q3 handles uneven surfaces with ease thanks also to a longer wheelbase.

The headlights of the new Q3 are narrow and wedge shaped. The top-of-the-range version are the Matrix LED headlights. These lights incorporate sensors and an inbuilt camera that detects other road users, as well as ambient light in built-up areas. They then react by dipping individual LEDs to reduce the risk of dazzling other road users, while still fully illuminating the remainder of the road.
