Audi Q3 the Urban Escape

The SUV was seen by some as too expensive to own whereas the lowly hatchback did not provide enough bang for buck for some people. Car makers decided to meet halfway and deliver the crossover, making the hatchback bigger to accommodate some of the much sought after features in the bigger cars. The Audi Q3 is one such example.

Audi Q3 Exterior

The front of the crossover hatchback is taken up by the Singleframe grille with the iconic Audi intersecting rings. On either side of the grille one finds the headlight cluster. Within this is a set of high power LED lights to ensure that the road is always in view.

The designers of this exterior shell pulled out all the stops to ensure that the Q3 had an aggressive and sporty outlook. It is no wonder, therefore, that the side sills are accentuated and the air intakes have been made larger. The rear spoiler is more pronounced to go along with this sporty theme.

Audi Q3 Interior

The inside of the cabin is lined with high grade walnut, adding to the elegance and luxury. For a feature that is predominantly left for sedans and SUVs, the panoramic sunroof is present here. This leaves the interior feeling open and makes for a more enjoyable ride experience in picturesque surroundings.

Alongside the BOSE Surround Sound system, there is a smart touchscreen display that enables efficient navigation. All this is enjoyed from the comfort of leather covered seats that offer ample lumbar support.
