With a height of 1,585 mm, the SUV sits 5 mm lower than its predecessor. The second-gen model offers more knee room, headroom and elbow room.
Like any other Audi, the Q3 tries to be more sophisticated. There’s a long list of new technologies, including as Matrix LED headlights, (10.25-inch or 12.3-inch) Audi virtual cockpit, 10.1-inch touchscreen for the MMI navigation plus infotainment system, Audi phone box (for enhanced cellular reception and Qi wireless charging), type-C USB port and more.
