2012 Audi Q3 2.0 TDI 1

Powerful is the success of the BMW X 1 especially direct competition from Audi and Mercedes a painful thorn in the side. At least the Ingolstädter can now send a direct competitor in the field Q3 with the Audi. While the BMW open X 1 on platform of 3 Series Touring with market design deliberately sporting and masculine trains on display, the Q3 of Audi spins the optical thread of his bigger brothers of Q5 and Q7 roundish and dome-like down. “The premium crossover in the small segment of A segment is just beginning”, ushers in a Sandra Goeres of product marketing at Audi, “since the Q3 comes just right.” The 4.39-meter-long entry level SUV in Europe and here above all in countries such as Britain, Spain, Germany, Italy to find the most interested parties. To drive away from paved roads will come while the customer despite all wheel drive technology not in the sense.

The Q3 has to be the best chance to the new model of success the Ingolstädter. Most recently, the Audi Q5 was the most successful Quattro model and the waiting times of up to eight months currently provide significant annoyances with customers. Whom a VW Tiguan to usually is, which is expected in the more exclusive Q3 more comfortable feel. It is produced not by Audi, but in the seat plant in Martorell near Barcelona. The platform comes from the VW Tiguan, numerous details of A4 and A3. Just as surprisingly as the pleasing exterior the Interior reflected little. Everything look nice and handle, somewhat more independence a series models such as the Q3 in contradistinction to his brothers could well tolerated. On the dashboard of the fold-out function Multihead could be quite larger. Visually, it acts like a foreign body. The space available is neat thanks to the 2.60 metres long Radstandes. Front one can sit well and also rear two adults find sufficient place. Threes? I’d rather not. In the hold, there is a volume between 460 and 1,365 litres – always sufficient. But the flat sloping rear window and significantly restricts the load area upward. A practical hatchback with electric actuation – wrong.

While the main competitor BMW X is 1 in the first place with driving dynamics, it felt more comfortable going to Q3 at the Audi. Relaxed and casual the Audi bounce everything off, what it comes under the 17-incher. The noise level is at the 177 HP strong top diesel Q3 2.0 TDI quattro pleasant reserved. Via a button on the dashboard drive select can be the driving program switch with electronic damping control (1,180 euros extra charge), inter alia, the coordination of springs and dampers variable set. Not like the to smooth electrical power steering, which gives too little contact with the ground can Q3 at the Audi however. Also, the smallest Audi SUV shows clear trends to nod and faltering in nifty corners. The weight just under 1.7 tons on the 2.0 TDI quattro is however hard to feel. Initially the Audi Q3 is when two gasoline units and quattro diesel engines only as all wheel drive version available. The savings model Audi Q3 2.0 TDI 140 HP waives the meaningful all-wheel drive is easier with a six-speed manual transmission but about 140 kilograms and consumes only 5.2 liters diesel.
