Audi Q3 gets priced in 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 the U.S market in one of the priorities. To win over some more fans, the German brand has recently introduced the Audi Q3 in the U.S.A.

The Audi Q3 is a five-door compact executive crossover, with a transverse-mounted front engine that entered production in 2011. Well, the latest generation of the Q3 is priced from $32,500 - excluding a $925 destination charge - in the United States, being $1,200 more expensive than its direct enemy, the Mercedes GLA. However, the Audi features xenon headlights, a panoramic glass sunroof and LED daytime running lights, as well as 12-way power and heated front seats, leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control and 60/40 split folding rear seats.

The Audi Q3 is also equipped with a power liftgate, a 14-speaker Bose Surround Sound System and an MMI Navigation plus system with a 7-inch display. Clients can also benefit of a Sport package that includes sport seats, shift paddles and Audi drive select system. The crossover is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine outputting 200 bhp (149 kW) and 207 lb-ft (280 Nm) of torque. This is mated to a six-speed Tiptronic transmission which can be linked to an optional quattro all-wheel drive system for some extra $2,100.
