The family of the new Q3 was added to the fashionable version of the Sportback. Perhaps a little less practical but much more stylish.
Audi introduces current trends in the compact segment: what we previously knew as Q4, was presented under the name Q3 Sportback. The last word, as you know, the German firm stands for five-door hatchbacks, but for the crossover it appeared in the agenda of the “four rings” for the first time.
Thanks to a more dynamic, littered the roof line Q3 Sportback looks slightly longer than the related Q3, but according to official data, the difference in length between them is only 16 mm. in addition, he is 29 mm lower, although the volume of internal space, this should not affect: the wheelbase of the crossover is the same and is 2 680 mm.
In the Audi claim that all body panels Q3 Sportback new, from-pillars, and even the windshield cross-coupe original.

In the basic configuration, the cross-coupe will be equipped with 17-inch wheels, but optionally, the dimensionality can be increased to 20.
Interior architecture Q3 Sportback is largely identical to the Q3 interior, except, of course, the back. The seats in the second row received for longitudinal adjustment in the range of 130 mm and is divided into three parts, the backrest, the inclination of which can also be changed.

By the way, despite a dashing roofline, rear space enough seats for taller occupants: pictured is our German colleague growth of 1.85 m.
In the European market Audi plans to equip the Q3 Sportback and three engines – one petrol and two diesel. The most powerful will be the cross coupe 45 TFSI version, which will get a 230-horsepower two-liter turbo engine.
