Audi Q3 2011-2015 OverviewDon't let the looks fool you, and don't let the positioning of the Q3 as an entry point to the 'Q' range of vehicles make you rethink about this automobile. Why? Because the Q3 is one of the most practical and exciting Audi products that you can buy today. It's fun to drive, and practical too.
The competition includes BMW X1, Volvo V40 Cross Country, and Mercedes Benz's upcoming GLA. Now while all these are good products in their own way, the Q3 is backed by quattro four-wheel drive system, daunting looks, and a fun to drive package.??Add to that the presence of fuel efficient diesel engines, and the ability to handle bad roads, thanks to a well sorted suspension. If there's an Audi that does it all, the Q3 could be it.
Audi Q3 2011-2015 ExteriorWhile it is not be a full grown SUV, the Q3 has the rugged looks to give an impression that it can take care of bad roads without throwing its passengers around. While the design is unmistakably Audi, the sporty looks are a big positive for the Q3. It looks brawny but without being overly big, it looks sporty but without having to hug the ground, and it looks smart without telling too much about the calibre of the vehicle.
It is the smallest Q vehicle available, but doesn't feel small in isolation. In comparison, yes it does look small, because it is. On compared to the competition, it is indeed bigger, and more imposing.??The LED DRLs on the front, the SUV-ish stance, and the well executed rear makes the overall design of the Q3 very likable.
Audi Q3 2011-2015 InteriorTypical Audi affair, the interior is well put together. It might not be the liveliest of dashboard layouts but it looks good nevertheless. The fit and finish is class leading, and the space for five adults and their luggage is good too.
It is luxurious and being higher than other Audi vehicles, getting in and out is relatively easy. The large loading bay at the rear can be further expanded by folding the rear seats( 60:40 split), should you plan to move a lot of luggage.
The seats are comfortable and you wouldn't feel out of place, if you stay away from the wheel for too long. The vehicle feels great for both the passenger and the driver.??The car-like driving position and ergonomically placed controls help in being in the driver's seat a rewarding experience.
Audi Q3 2011-2015 Engine & TransmissionEngine options include a 2-litre diesel engine and a petrol engine of the same capacity. Both get Audi's 7-speed dual clutch transmission (S-tronic in Audi's lingo) to send the power to all four wheels via the quattro system.
There's also an 'S' version, which offers a slightly detuned version of the 2-litre diesel engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. Unlike the other two variants here, the 'S' is front-wheel-drive only.??While the diesel engines bring practicality and fun in equal proportions, it's the petrol engine that feels like it's made specially for enthusiasts. It's peppy, and turbochargin makes it more powerful.
Audi Q3 2011-2015 MileageClearly Q3 S is the pick if you are looking for the best fuel economy among the three. Not only sending power to just two wheels help save fuel, it also means that that the engine doesn't have to do the extra work of powering the four wheels when it's not required.
And while the dual-clutch gearbox is brilliant, the manual gearbox offered on the Q3S can help maximize the fuel economy. The diesel variant also gets energy recuperation system. Also, there's a Start-Stop system available too.
Audi Q3 2011-2015 Braking and SafetyAudi Q3 comes loaded with both active as well as passive safety devices. ESP (Electronic stabilization program), full size airbags, rear side airbags, front side airbags, head airbags, electronic vehicle immobilization device, tyre pressure monitoring system, side-on collision protection, traction control and wheel-selective torque distribution sums up the list. The best bit is that almost all of the aforementioned devices are standard across the whole range. A nice move by Audi towards the otherwise neglected on-road safety. A much-needed in country like India where annual road kill is about one and a half lakh.
312mm ventilated disc at front and 282mm solid discs at rear does the duty in the Q3. Pedals are smartly placed for comfortable long cruising and provides decent feedback and feel. The braking system comes with recuperation or say regenerative braking system which turns the heat energy during braking to usable electrical energy.
Audi Q3 2011-2015 Performance and HandlingAlthough it seems like a huge vehicle from the outside, the Q3 behaves like an intermediate between a car and an SUV. The quattro equipped variants have great traction, while the front wheel drive version isn't bad either.
The vehicle offers a good amount on confidence and doesn't disappoint. The 2-litre petrol motor is the pick of the lot if you are looking for driving fun. The forced-induction engine is very quick, and very engaging to drive too.
Unlike the A4, which lack the right ingredients to keep the driver happy, the Q3 is full of them. All three engines are good, but choose the petrol if you are looking for outright fun. Having said that, the two diesels are great too.?
