To celebrate the first anniversary of the Audi Q3 in South Korea, the German car maker has launched a limited edition variant.
Audi has chosen the ongoing summer season as the theme for the limited edition Q3 of which only 100 units will be available. The crossover SUV sports a few extra accessories to become more exclusive.
The limited edition is differentiated from the regular version by a rough road package which endows a matte black plastic underbody cladding all around the car including the bumpers. The front scuff plate and the rear diffuser are accented in silver while the twin exhaust pipes are chrome plated.
The other Limited Edition features are aluminium roof rails and 18-inch, 5-spoke alloy wheels. The car gets four-spoke steering wheel and a cooling bag worth 50,000 won (around Rs. 30,460) free with every limited edition car. The cooling bag can be stowed in the boot and can draw power from the rear 12V power socket.
The Audi Q3 is powered by the 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine that is available in two states of tune – 140bhp and 177bhp. Both engines are mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission (The Indian Q3 S with the 140bhp 2.0-litre TDI engine is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox).
