Audi launched the Q3 Sportback in March 2020 as part of the rollout of the all new Q3 range. The big difference is a coupe like profile, and sits some 30mm lower giving a definite sporty appearance.
I got stopped a number of times by people asking what it was and saying just how good it looks.
Inside it provides a combination of comfort and luxury in a practical layout. Front occupants are cocooned with the driver ergonomics of the dash layout particularly good. The rear allows a combination of seating and load area with a 40/20/40 split rear seat.
Aimed at the Urban market the level of technology and connectivity is excellent with DAB and Digital radio, wireless Apple Car Play, virtual cockpit and more.
The 35 TFSI is a front wheel drive with a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a six-speed S tronic transmission. This combination ensures a zippy drive yet remains economical to use.
Priced from $49,900 there is also a launch edition packed with extras for $56,450 plus the usual costs.
