Audi Ireland has announced prices and specifications for the new Audi Q3 which is now on sale with a starting price of €36,750. As part of Audi’s Inspiration sales event, finance is available from €369 per month with 3.9% APR.

Audi’s premium compact SUV now features a range of upgraded specifications, an expanded engine offering and new advanced technologies available, like LED headlights.

The premium character of the redesigned Audi Q3 is apparent at first glance. The Audi designers have honed the details of the coupe-like lines with the characteristic wrap-around tailgate to further add to the model’s unique style. The Q3 is now available in striking new colours, like Hainan Blue and Utopia Blue.

The standard Q3 in SE specification comes equipped with a generous host of features, including xenon headlights; front and rear parking sensors; cruise control; a multi-function leather steering wheel; and electric lumbar support for extra comfort.

Sitting above the SE model is the sporty S Line model which features upgraded 18” alloys, S Line Bumpers in full body paint finish, S line Sports suspension and Leather and Cloth Sports Seats for a premium of €2,800 over the SE model.

Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive technology, which delivers increased traction and enhanced driving performance, and an S tronic automatic transmission, are available on selected engines at a premium of €2,200 and €2,400 respectively.

With CO2 figures up to 17% lower than the previous model, the new Q3 aims to further solidify its position as Ireland’s leading premium compact SUV with a new 2.0TDI 120bhp entry-level engine and the advanced 1.4TFSI 150bhp engine with Cylinder on Demand technology. The latter returns an impressive 5.5l /100km and, thanks to its efficiency, bears the ‘ultra’ badge.
