Audi has released latest TDI version for Audi Q3 in UK market.
As the wettest summer on record continues to reinforce the arguments in favour of quattro all-wheel-drive, Audi has just launched its 250th model equipped with this invaluable all-weather traction aid – a new ‘entry level’ version of the sought-after Q3 compact SUV. The new Q3 2.0 TDI quattro 140PS is now available to order priced from £26,510 OTR, and is expected to account for up to 40 per cent of total Q3 sales.
The new model channels the 140PS and 320Nm of torque delivered by its 2.0-litre direct injection diesel engine through a six-speed manual gearbox to the rapid-reacting quattro system. Optimised by engine start-stop and recuperation technology, the highly efficient unit can return up to 49.6mpg according to the combined cycle test, equating to CO2 output of 149g/km. Equally importantly, it can take the Q3 to 62mph from rest in 9.9 seconds and push on to a 122mph top speed where conditions allow.
