All-New Audi Q3 Now Available in Malaysia – RM270k
The second-generation Audi Q3 has been launched in Malaysia to compete in the premium compact SUV segment.
The new Q3 looks much sportier than its predecessor thanks to the striking Singleframe in octagon design, which is divided up by vertical bars, along with the large air inlets.
For our market, the headlights are full LED items while the LED rear light clusters also feature dynamic indicators.
The interior continues the design of the exterior and echoes in many ways the brand’s full-size models. Its central element is the MMI touch display with its high-gloss black glass-look surround. Together with the air conditioning controls underneath, it is tilted 10 degrees toward the driver.
All displays, buttons and controls are located ergonomically. The comfortable seats provide a sporty position; the steering wheel is steeply angled accordingly.
Compared with its predecessor, the new Audi Q3 has grown in virtually all dimensions. It is 4,484 mm long, 1,849 mm wide and 1,585 mm high. The wheelbase has been stretched by 77 mm. As standard, the rear seats can be moved fore/aft by 150 mm.
Their three-way split backrests in the ratio 40:20:40 can be tilted in seven stages. Depending on the position of the rear seats and backrests, the luggage compartment capacity is between 530 and 1,525 liters.
The loading floor can be adjusted in up to three levels and the parcel shelf can be stowed underneath the floor if not needed. An electric tailgate, which can be opened and closed with a kicking motion, is standard for Malaysia.
Also equipped for the Malaysian-spec model are the 12.3-inch Audi virtual cockpit plus and the top-of-the-line MMI navigation plus with a 10.1-inch touch display in the middle of the dashboard. Apple Car Play and Android Auto are included as well.
The Q3 is powered by a 1.4 TFSI gasoline engine with 150 hp and a fast-shifting six-speed S tronic transmission as standard. The car completes the 0-100km/h sprint in 8.9 seconds and has a top speed of 207km/h. Fuel consumption (combined) is 7.2L/100km.
Built in Győr, Hungary, the fully imported Audi Q3 has a recommended retail price of RM269,900. From November 2 to 10, customers who purchase any Audi model will qualify for an exclusive lucky draw with the following prizes:
