The new generation Audi Q3 crossover has now become available with a wider range of engines, including powerful 2.0-liter petrol and diesel units.
Buyers of the next-generation Audi Q3 receive a greater choice of motors. There are three gasoline/petrol and two diesel ones from 150 to 230 hp.
All Q3’s engines are four-cylinder and turbocharged. The drive can be front- or all-wheel, the transmission is a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic S tronic.
So, what do we have for the new Q3 in terms of power units?
The entry level is an economical petrol engine of 150 hp (1,5 l, 250 Nm) with a function of automatic deactivation of two cylinders. AT or MT are available.
A 2.0 TFSI with 190-hp output (320 Nm) and only S-tronic automatics is provided for mid-level.
A range-topping petrol engine is mounted on the Audi Q3 45 TFSI. It delivers 230 hp and the maximum torque of 350 Nm. The gearbox is automatic.
In the diesel lineup there are two units, more precisely, one 2.0 TDI with two power options – 150 and 190 hp (340 and 400 Nm, respectively).
The permanent quattro AWD is standard for 2.0-liter petrol engines and the most powerful diesel one. It gives the new Q3 a significant impetus for traction, stability and dynamic handling in all road conditions.
The central element of the quattro drive is an electronically controlled hydraulic multi-disc coupling on the rear axle. The control system can already begin to send part of the torque from the front axle to the rear, when the driver enters the turn.
The base price of the new Audi Q3 in Germany, for example, starts from 33,700 euros.
