Although it was originally expected to make its premiere at the 2011 Shanghai Motor Show, the Audi Q3 has been officially unveiled a couple weeks early. The new crossover vehicle features a steeply sloping rear hatch that provides 16.24 cubic feet of storage capacity with the seats in place (storage space increases to 48.2 cubic feet with the seats folded down), adaptive light technology, electronic parking assistance, and Audi’s hard drive-based MMI infotainment and navigation system. In addition to the highfalutin luxury fixings and trims, the Q3 also features some seriously impressive goods underneath the hood, with the option of choosing between two gasoline and one diesel engine (all with direct injection) that boast anywhere from 140 to 211 horsepower. Expected to arrive on the European market around June, the 2012 Audi Q3 is set at a base price of €29,900 (approximately $43,000 USD).
