2015 Audi Q3 prepared for the U.S.

The four rings brand is one of the top and, at the same time, one of the most famous car producers in the world. Starting with SUVs, sedans, coupes they’ve got everything a respectable company needs. One of the politics of Audi is to be present in as many markets as possible and to conquer them. And according to the German chiefs they are considering to introduce the Audi Q3 in the United States as a 2015 year model.

The Audi Q3 is a representative crossover for the German company and it successfully faces the opponents in its segment. It supposedly should enter the market this autumn and it will be equipped with LED-infused xenon plus headlights, a panoramic sunroof and 18-inch alloy wheels. Inside the cabin, comfort will be at its best. There will be 12-way power front seats, heated front seats and leather upholstery, as well as LED interior lighting and metallic trim.

The 2015 Audi Q3 will certainly have a lot of goodies. Among these, the most important are an electrically opening tailgate, a BOSE Surround Sound system and an Audi drive select system with three different modes: Comfort, Dynamic and Auto. A Sport package will also be available, as well as a Driver Assistance package and an MMI navigation plus system with a seven-inch display.

The 2015 Audi Q3 destined for the U.S. will probably borrow the engine configurations from the European version. This means that power might come from a 2.0-liter TSFI engine producing 170 HP (125 kW) and 211 HP (155 kW), or from a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine that generates 310 HP (228 kW) and 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) of torque. This last version allows the CUV to sprint from stand point to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and to reach an electronically limited maximum speed of 250 km/h (155mph).
