Audi’s compact and successful car of the SUV category. the Q3 is all set to get even better. Audi UK has decided to not only add a new powerplant to the engine lineup but also improve the car on the features end by introducing a new top of the range trim level.
The Audi Q3 has adopted a new, compact and more fuel efficient 1.4-litre TFSI petrol engine. The engine will be available with SE and a new S line Plus specification. Talking about the performance of the new engine, it has been introduced as an alternative to the 140 PS 2.0-litre TDI model so that customers get even more options at the time of buying. The same can produce peak power of 150 PS between 5,000 and 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 250 Nm delivered between 1750 and 3000 rpm.

When mated to the manual transmission, the Q3 1.4L can sprint from zero to 62 mph in 9.2 seconds and achieve a top speed of 126 mph, while returning 47.9 mpg and emitting 137 g/km of CO2. The automatic transmission equipped version can sprint from zero to 62 mph in 8.9 seconds.
Customers who are ready to pay extra and are considering quattro equipped models will also have a new S line Plus specification that is more feature packed than the S line option. As far as the added elements are concerned the S line Plus specification makes use of 19 inch five spoke alloy wheel design, privacy glass, updated upholstery of perforated leather and Alcantara, cruise control, Audi parking system plus, satellite navigation etc.
All the features listed above are added on top of the features available on the S line specification which includes Xenon Plus headlights, LED daytime running lamps, light and rain sensors, sport seats at the front, Audi Music Interface, Voice control system, Bluetooth connectivity, and more.
