Audi adds new Audi Q3 to Middle East SUV range
Jeff Mannering, Managing Director of Audi Middle East, said "the demand for both the Audi Q5 and Q7 still outstrips supply. We are constantly negotiating with the factory for higher allocations for the Middle East markets, even though the new generations of the Q5 and Q7 are expected only in 2013 and early 2015 respectively. We are positive that the new Audi Q3 will fare equally as well."
The Q3 is immediately recognizable as the youngest member of the large Audi family. Every aspect of the Q3 showcases Audi technology - the body, the drivetrain, the chassis and the assistance and multimedia systems. The coupe-like lines are an expression of its sporty character. Sharp edges frame elegantly arched sheet metal surfaces, and distinctive lights xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights and LED tail lights accentuate the front and rear.
The compact SUV is 4.39 meters long, 1.83 meters wide and 1.59 meters high. With only 1,630 kilograms weight (base version) and a highly rigid and safe occupant cell, Audi once again demonstrates its competence in "ultra" lightweight construction.
Earlier this year the Audi Q3 received five stars - the highest possible score - for passive crash safety by the European consumer protection initiative Euro NCAP (New Car Assessment Program).
