Report: Audi will bring the Q3 baby crossover to China

Article by Christian A., on October 29, 2010

Citing Audi’s excellent performance, Volkswagen AG announced that it will import all its Audi models to China, according to Zhang Xiaojun, executive vice president of FAW-VW Audi Sales Division.

In this report from the Beijing Times, it was found out that the Audi Q3 will likely be presented to the domestic market at the end of 2011.

The Audi Q3, which is slotted below the Q5, is a compact SUV based on the Audi Cross Coupe Quattro concept that was displayed at the 2007 Shanghai Auto Show.

The Q3’s volume version has a body size that’s similar to the Cross Coupe Quattro concept that measures (LxWxH) 4629mm x 1880mm x 1653mm, and has a wheelbase of 2600mm and 450L luggage compartment capacity.

Furthermore, the Q3 is built on a platform borrowed from the Volkswagen Tiguan. The imported Audi Q3 will be equipped with a 200 hp 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine and a 2.0-liter TDI turbo diesel engine, which are offered in two-wheel drive and four-wheel drives options.

Sources say that the European model of the Q3 will get a 6-speed manual transmission while the US model will have a 6-speed dual-clutch (S tronic) or a traditional 6-speed automatic transmission.

In 2005, VW launched the full-size luxury crossover SUV, Audi Q7, its first Q series product under the Audi brand that has reaped a lot of success in this segment. In 2009, the Audi Q5 arrived and was also a success in the consumer market, as its supply has consistently been unable to cope with demand.
