Audi Q3 2.0 TDI


Audi announced launch of a new version Q3 in the British market powered by a 2.0 liter TDI diesel engine.

Performance and economy figures are typical of a diesel engine: 140PS at 4,200rpm and 320Nm between 1,750 and 3,200rpm, 0-62mph in 9.9 seconds, 122mph top speed, combined MPG 49.6, CO2 149g/km. Not particularly inspiring, but Audi says this SUV with weather-beating quattro drive is expected to be the most popular of all in the Q3 range. It is as practical and as well-equipped as the rest of the models, but much more economical. Summer rain calls for the reassurance of quattro all-wheel-drive, which is favoured by around 30 per cent of Audi customers.

Audi Q3 2.0 TDI quattro 140PS now available priced from £26,510 OTR to £29,260 OTR.

Details and specs:

The new model channels the 140PS and 320Nm of torque delivered by its 2.0-litre direct injection diesel engine through a six-speed manual gearbox to the rapid-reacting quattro system. Optimised by engine start-stop and recuperation technology, the highly efficient unit can return up to 49.6mpg according to the combined cycle test, equating to CO2 output of 149g/km. Equally importantly, it can take the Q3 to 62mph from rest in 9.9 seconds and push on to a 122mph top speed where conditions allow.

As usual, SE and S line specification levels are available, the former including 17-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, a Concert audio system with 6.5-inch manually retractable colour display screen, preparation for SD card navigation, Bluetooth interface, Audi Music Interface iPod connection and light and rain sensors.

For a premium of £2,750 S line specification adds larger 18-inch alloy wheels, S line exterior and interior styling enhancements, xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lamps and LED rear tail lights.

Options include ‘steerable beam’ adaptive light technology for the xenon plus headlights, a high-beam assistant to intelligently illuminate the road ahead, the hard drive-based navigation system plus with seven-inch colour screen and 3D mapping and the side assist blind spot warning and lane assist lane departure warning driver aids.

Inside the deceptively roomy Q3 there is seating for up to five adults, and an accommodating load bay offering up to 1,365 litres of capacity thanks to split/folding rear seats.
