Audi UK is now offering a 1.4-liter TFSI engine for the Q3 compact crossover with prices starting from 23,870 GBP.

The new entry-level model can be had only with a front-wheel drive layout combined with a 6-speed manual or a dual-clutch 7-speed S tronic transmission. The four-cylinder 1.4-liter TFSI engine generates 150 HP (110 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque and enables the Q3 to return 39.8 mpg US (47.9 mpg UK or 5.9 liters / 100 km) with CO2 emissions of 137 g/km for the manual model (145 g/km for S Tronic variant).

When equipped with the manual gearbox, the 1.4-liter TFSI-powered Q3 will run the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 9.2 seconds while the S Tronic version does it 0.3 seconds faster. Regardless of the chosen gearbox, the Audi Q3 will be able to reach a top speed of 126 mph (203 km/h).

Audi is also introducing an S Line Plus trim which can be had with the 2.0 TFSI and 2.0 TDI engines and costs 2,350 GBP more than the S Line variant. It comes with 19-inch alloy wheels and a privacy glass extending from the B-pillar rearwards. The interior gains a perforated leather & Alcantara upholstery and packs cruise control, SD card-based sat-nav, 6.5-inch color display and Audi parking system plus.
