Audi has launched the new Audi Q3 30 TFSI for sale in India making it the first model in the Q range to provide a petrol option. It is priced at INR 32,20,000 (ex-showroom New Delhi).
It is powered by the 1.4L four-cylinder turbocharged petrol motor from the new A4 and A3 facelift (yet to launch), which produces 150 hp and peak torque of 250Nm. It is paired with a 6-speed S-Tronic automatic gearbox as standard, which shuffles power to the front wheels. Audi claims that the Q3 30 TFSI model can sprint from 0-100 km/h sprint in 8.9 seconds, and can average a fuel mileage of 16.9 km/L.
Available in a single variant, the Q3 30 TFSI comes equipped with Panoramic Sunroof, 17” alloy wheels, LED Headlights with signature LED DRLs, dual zone climate control, leather upholstery, LED cabin lighting, and an MMI Radio system.
The Q3 was recently updated to include more features as standard from the base grade. It was only available with a 2.0-litre diesel engine which, in its Quattro variant, puts out 184 hp and 380 Nm of torque, while the 2.0 TDI FWD trim is rated at 150 hp and 340 Nm. Both variants come with a 7-speed S-Tronic gearbox as standard.
