Rendering - Audi Q3
Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.
The latest addition to Audi' off-roader line-up, will look rugged, curvy, stylish, raw and smashing!
The Audi Q3 will be the third in the line of Q cars, the fourth Q1 will come in the middle of the next decade. The Audi Q3 will be the newly launched X1's rival, it will be part of the all-new market segment that belong to budget SUVs.
The preliminary Q3 concept was displayed at the 2007 Shanghai Motor Show, the production car will take a big share of its design from the concept, but expect something more practical and die-friendly.
The chassis of the Q3 will come from VW's Tiguan, which we are expecting in India in the near future. The Q3 will be a small off-road wonder, its 4WD system promises a great deal. The 2WD system will also be part of the line-up.
A 2.0-litre TDI turbodiesel with either 138bhp or 168bhp, as well as the 2.0-litre TFSI from the Golf GTI with up to 207bhp, filtered through either a six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearbox is rumored to be in the works.
Exciting - Audi would show another Q3 concept that is closer to the production model anytime in 2010.
More Exciting - The Audi Q3 will be in India in 2011
