2022 Audi Q3 Launched At A Price Of Rs 44.89 Lakh
The entry-level Premium Plus trim of the second-generation Audi Q3 costs Rs 44.89 lakh, while the top-spec Technology trim is priced at Rs 50.39 lakh, both ex-showroom in India. At the end of this year, deliveries for the new Q3 will start.
After an absence of more than two years, the Q3, along with the Q5 and Q7 SUVs, was relaunched in India as part of the changeover to the BS6 emission standards. In July of 2018, the second-generation Q3 made its global debut.
In India, there is only one 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine available for the Audi Q3, and it makes 190 horsepower and 320 Nm. The engine has a 7-speed DCT transmission and quattro all-wheel drive as standard equipment. The 2022 Audi Q3 does not have a diesel engine option as the SUV’s predecessor had. The 0-100kph sprint time that Audi claims is 7.3 seconds.
The same engine is also available in the bigger Q5 and a variety of other SUVs made by the VW Group, including the Skoda Kodiaq and the Volkswagen Tiguan. In actuality, the Tiguan and Kodiaq as well as the MQB platform from the VW Group serve as the foundation for the Q3.
The 2022 Audi Q3 is a bigger SUV than the outgoing model; it has a slightly longer length, broader width, and a longer wheelbase. Regarding appearance, it is obvious that the bigger Q7 served as inspiration. With thinner LED headlights, a big octagonal grille, and sharp bumper creases, it has a much more streamlined appearance compared to the preceding model’s softer curves. The 18-inch alloy wheels that come standard on the India-spec Q3 are available in five exterior paint colors: Pulse Orange, Glacier White, Chronos Grey, Mythos Black, and Navarra Blue.
Additionally, the inside receives a whole design makeover. The new 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system is now incorporated into the dashboard, unlike the outgoing Q3’s free-floating infotainment screen, according to Audi, who says that space is much enhanced over the outgoing model. Additionally, the dashboard and door pads include ornamental aluminum inlays to add contrast. Thankfully, Audi has kept the traditional dials and buttons for the temperature control system, unlike its pricier vehicles.
A 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, a panoramic sunroof, two-zone temperature control, park assist with a reverse camera, 30-colour ambient lighting, six airbags, and more are just a few of the Q3’s standout features. for a complete list of every feature offered on each trim. Okapi Brown and Pearl Beige are the two interior color choices for the Q3 built for India.
Early this month, reservations for the third quarter began at Rs 2 lakh. For the first 500 buyers, Audi has included a 3-year/50,000km service plan in addition to a 5-year extended warranty on the Q3. The 2022 Audi Q3 is still in competition with vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz GLA ($44.90 lakh), BMW X1 (Rs 41.50 lakh–Rs43.50 lakh), Mini Countryman (Rs 42 lakh–Rs 46 lakh), and Volvo XC40 (Rs 44.50 lakh).
