Audi’s Q3 is leading sales in the luxury SUV and has been a dominant force in that segment for quite some time now. Audi however, is not getting complacent and has released a new edition which will be at the top of the Q3 range. This new trim will be called the Q3 Dynamic edition.
Exterior revisions include panoramic sunroof, 17-inch alloy wheels with 5-spoke ‘Trias design’, and a front grille fully done-up in chrome. Headlamps are now Xenon Plus with LED DRLs and the tail lights get the clear lens treatment. The body can now be painted in three new colours – Florett Silver, Mythos Black and Monsoon Grey.
Interior boasts of a multi-function leather steering wheel, Walnut Brown wood inlays, 4-way lumbar support for front seats and a light & rain sensor as well. Inside storage has also been given a boost with a new storage package offered as standard. Pushing the comfort quotient further up is the newly-tuned Dynamic Comfort suspension and two-zone automatic climate control system.
Other features introduced to justify the price hike include Auto Release function, Hill start assist, Parking Aid plus and the Audi Drive select. The Audi Drive Select lets you choose form three modes: Comfort, Dynamic, and Auto. This literally offers three unique driving experiences to the driver helping to adjust to different situations or road conditions.
The Dynamic edition is priced at Rs 38,40,000/- (ex-showroom, Mumbai), while the Q3 range starts at Rs 25,49,000/-.
On the occasion, this is what Joe King, Head, Audi India, had to say, “The Audi Q3 is the only true compact luxury SUV in India which offers quattro® all-wheel drive. The legendry quattro® technology not only adds to the off-road capability of the car but also provides more traction and enhances driving pleasure. With this new top of the line Audi Q3, we are further enhancing the appeal of one of the most successful SUVs in the Indian market. We are convinced that the Audi Q3 Dynamic will be a similar runaway success as the Audi Q3 in 2012 and will play a key role in our growth this year.”
