Audi Q3 Sportback: What’s on offer?
The Audi Q3 Sportback variant comes with a bunch of design and cosmetic changes that distinguish it from the rest of the Q3 lineup. The Sportback features a sloping roofline, giving it a coupe-like look. The air intakes have also been redesigned to a more triangular look. The slatted pattern on the front hexagonal grille has been replaced by a honeycomb pattern. The coupe SUV rests on 10-spoke, 18-inch alloy wheels. In terms of dimensions, the Audi Q3 Sportback is 36mm longer, 6mm narrower, and 49mm shorter than the Q3. The Sportback variant stands at 4,518 x 1,843 x 1,558mm.
Things remain the same under the hood as the Audi Q3 Sportback continues to be offered with the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine found on the Q3. This engine unit produces a maximum power of 190hp and 320Nm peak torque and is mated to a 7-speed DCT gearbox that channels the power to all four wheels. The SUV can go from 0-100kmph in 7.3 seconds. There is no diesel engine option for the Sportback variant either.
The interior layout remains the same for Audi Q3 Sportback, which isn’t a surprise as the Q3 underwent some radical design changes on the inside. In terms of features, the Audi Q3 gets a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, an all-digital instrument cluster, a 10-speaker audio system, wireless charging, a panoramic sunroof, climate control, and more.
