While at the Detroit Auto Show, Audi has finally pulled the cover back on its latest marvel of German engineering: the Q3 Vail Concept. Until now, the U.S. market has only had access to the Q7 SUV, and its smaller Q5 counterpart. Featuring aluminum underbody guard plates, additional lighting options, 20-inch wheels, and a rugged, lower body off-road trim, the Q3 Vail (named after a certain Colorado ski town of the same name) is designed as a nimble wintersport crossover with the U.S. market exclusively in mind. True to Audi form, the Q3 Vail is hardly a slouch under the hood either, where 314 horsepower and a punchy 2.5-liter turbo five-cylinder will happily go from zero to sixty in just over 5 seconds. How’s that for beating powder-day traffic up the canyon?
