Seating five full-sized adults, the Q3 indulges its passengers in absolute luxury. As cognac brown leathers adorn the sculpted seats, honeycomb pearl panels accentuate the interior's surfaces. There's also a 465-watt 14-speaker Bose surround system to compliment the fold-out 7.0-inch LCD monitor. And despite its downward sloping roof-line, the Q3 offers exceptional rear passenger headroom.
According to PGA Cars Inc., the Q3 will be made available locally with the same four-cylinder TDI engine found in the Q5. The turbo-diesel unit is expected to produce between 140 to 170 horsepower depending on local specifications. Quattro permanent all-wheel-drive comes as an option, whereas the seven-speed S-tronic transmission should come as standard.
Catch a rare glimpse of Audi's baby SUV this week so you can start saving up for one when it finally arrives in Audi's Philippine showrooms in 2012. Although the unit currently on display is not of local specs, we sure do hope that the lovely panoramic glass roof and autonomous park assist system will be carried through.
