Audi Q3 Sportback Now Available in Malaysia for RM 301,739
In conjunction with the launch of their digital showroom, Audi Malaysia have introduced a new model to their local lineup – the Q3 Sportback. This particular model is an alternative bodystyle to the existing Q3. Unlike the regular Q3 though, the Q3 Sportback is available with a 2.0 TFSI engine and quattro all-wheel drive.
The Q3 Sportback features a sloping roofline for a more ‘coupé’-like silhouette. The more stylish look is complemented by a set of 19″ Audi Sport alloys in 5-twin arm design. These wheels are finished in matt titanium for a more sporty appearance.
The Audi Q3 Sportback 2.0 TFSI also comes with full LED headlights and taillights with dynamic turn indicators. They’ve also given it a black appearance pack, which makes the car look a little more menacing and athletic, especially with a brighter, contrasting colour.
The Q3 Sportback comes with Audi’s Virtual Cockpit, a fully-digital instrument cluster. It also has seamless smartphone integration with Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
It’s fully imported and goes up against other premium European crossovers such as the Mercedes-Benz GLA, BMW X1 & X2, Lexus UX, Volvo XC40, MINI Countryman, Jaguar E-Pace and DS 7 Crossback.
As mentioned above, the Q3 Sportback is available via the newly launched digital showroom.
Here’s the press release with more.
New arrival – the Audi Q3 Sportback
The Audi Q3 Sportback is the first compact crossover of the Audi brand. The car combines the strong presence and versatile everyday convenience of an SUV with the sporty elegance and handling of a coupé. Beneath its expressive design, it offers a variable interior with a digital operating concept from the full-size automotive class.
Differentiating from the Audi Q3, which comes with a 1.4 TFSI engine, the Q3 Sportback is offered in Malaysia exclusively with the more powerful 2.0 TFSI powerplant paired with quattro all-wheel drive. To enhance the driving experience, the car is equipped with Audi drive select and progressive steering.
Other notable design and technology features on the Audi Q3 Sportback include 19-inch Audi Sport cast aluminium wheels in 5-twin arm design in matt titanium look, full LED headlights and rear lights with dynamic turn indicators and the black appearance package that highlights the model’s sporty persona.
The Audi smartphone interface works seamlessly with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, thus unlocking many digital functionalities, while the Audi virtual cockpit, which is a fully digital display and the latest Audi MMI system enable safe access to these features.
With a recommended retail price of RM 301,739, the Audi Q3 Sportback is now available throughout the dealer network as well as the Audi Online Showroom.
