Wheels range in size from 17 to 20 inches in diameter, and the suspension has been tuned for high rolling comfort. Hill descent assist is available as an option, it said.
 
Meanwhile, the designers have honed the details of the coupe like lines with the characteristic wrap-around tailgate. Dominating horizontal lines up front and in the rear underscore the width and give the Q3 an expressive design.

The new model also offers plenty of space at all five seating positions. Its clear ergonomics and the superior workmanship underscore the premium claim. In its base configuration, the cargo compartment of the Audi Q3 has a capacity of 460 l; by folding down the split rear seatbacks, this can be increased to 1,365 l. 
 
It features a list of standard equipment, which can be supplemented with features taken directly from the luxury class, such as the LED interior lighting package and the power-adjustable front seats. With respect to driver assistance systems, the secondary collision brake assist is standard. - TradeArabia News Service
