Audi Q3 Sportback arrives in Bahrain

Audi Bahrain has added a compact SUV in coupé shape to its model range: the Audi Q3 Sportback.

The new model combines the strong presence and versatile everyday convenience of an SUV with the sporty elegance and agile handling of a coupé. This makes it the first compact crossover of the Audi brand.

The Audi Q3 Sportback stands for strength and precision to an equal degree, and reflects this in all design details. The black grille of the octagonal Singleframe is strongly three-dimensional in design, and this makes it particularly sporty. The same applies for the trapezoidal air inlets and the expressive bumper with its flat blade. Above the wheels, strong contours draw attention to the quattro drive, which comes as standard with most engines.

In the city, on long-haul routes, or on easy terrain – the compact crossover is a dynamic all-rounder. It features progressive steering as standard, whose gear ratio becomes increasingly direct as the steering angle increases, and the sport suspension, says Audi.

Depending on the driving situation, road condition, and personal preferences, the driver can vary the car’s characteristics via the standard dynamic handling system, Audi drive select, in six profiles, including the offroad mode.

The Audi Q3 Sportback has a large and highly variable interior. The rear seats offer space for three people. The front seats – electrically adjustable and heated on request – offer a sporty position and a high level of comfort. In addition, Alcantara surfaces on the instrument panel and the armrests emphasize the progressive design philosophy. When driving in the dark, the optional contour/ambient lighting package sets lighting accents with its 30 selectable colours.

“The operating and display concept proves how Audi is pushing ahead with digitalization: It comes with 10.25-inch screen diagonal, which the driver operates using the multifunction steering wheel. In the top-of-the-line system, MMI navigation plus, the displays appear in the Audi virtual cockpit, which offers many additional functions,” Audi says.

A touch display measuring 10.1 inches is positioned in the centre of the instrument panel. Together with the air-conditioning control unit located beneath it, the display is ergonomically tilted 10 deg towards the driver.

The Audi Q3 Sportback is now available at the Audi Centre Bahrain, starting from

BD21,990 ($58,167) inclusive of five years’ service package, five years’ manufacturer’s warranty and five years of roadside assistance, it says.
