Xenon plus provides greater illuminating power of dipped and high beam headlights, automatic-dynamic headlight range control and LED daytime running light band as well as rear lights, braking lights and indicators in LED technology. Two high-performance LEDs which require just two watts of power generate the rear light – a flat bar in the style of the daytime running lights – by means of light guides. 21 yellow LEDs are used for the turn signal, 18 red ones for the brake light – whose immediate response provides added safety for drivers following behind.
Audi demonstrates its competence in “ultra” lightweight construction with the Q3. Even the add-on parts are lightweight. The engine hood and the wrap-around tailgate are made of aluminum. The engine hood is secured to the body by two releases, allowing a crash-optimized construction with low sheet thicknesses and high geometrical stability.
The 7-speed S tronic is a versatile transmission. Drivers can let it shift automatically or change gears themselves using the selector lever. Two driving modes are available: In D mode, the engine runs as often as possible at low revs; in S mode, the driving style is sporty and the revs are higher. It comprises two transmission structures and integrates two multi-plate clutches. Both transmission structures are continuously active, but only one is connected to the engine at any one time. The management system for the multi-plate clutches is extremely precise. The transmission is responsive even in stop-and-go traffic and while maneuvering.
The luggage compartment has a volume of 460 liters. A two-piece, removable cargo area cover hides the contents from view. The split rear seat backs can be folded down quickly and easily in just one step without having to remove the head restraints. The tailgate opens electronically, including via the remote key fob, and swings up very high. A handle running the width of the tailgate makes it very easy to close again, and it latches with a satisfyingly solid sound.
The side view is dominated by the flowing, coupe-like roof that quickly begins sloping back downward. It flows into an unusually flat D-pillar, which lends the rear an energetic look that is further accentuated by the long roof spoiler. Sharply drawn lines on the flanks frame athletically arched sheet metal surfaces. Their wedge-shaped path gives the Q3 a lean and fast appearance. The wrap-around tailgate has a three-dimensional look which emphasizes the width of the Q3’s rear.
The start-stop system is an Audi efficiency technology. When the Q3 comes to a halt, the control unit shuts down the engine. The driver’s foot must keep the brake pedal depressed. A powerful starter restarts the engine quickly when the driver releases the brake.
The abbreviation TFSI® represents the combination of direct injection and turbocharging, a technology that Audi was the first carmaker in the world to introduce in 2004. The two technologies make an excellent team. The fuel injected directly into the combustion chambers is extremely turbulent, thus cooling the chamber walls. The resulting decrease in temperatures solves the problem inherent to all turbocharged engines – a tendency to knock, i.e. early detonation of the mixture on hot spots in the combustion chamber.
quattro® comprises permanent all-wheel drive with dynamic torque distribution, electronically controlled Haldex clutch and Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) via braking intervention on all driven wheels.
The electromechanical rack-and-pinion steering impresses with high efficiency. Because it consumes no energy when driving straight ahead, it reduces fuel consumption by as much as 0.3 liters per 100 kilometers. It has a direct steering ratio of 16.4:1, and steering boost gradually decreases with increasing speed.
