he car is the right choice for someone who wants to ball around in German engineering while still not having to think too much about its mileage or maintenance. But don’t get me wrong though, Audi did not cheap out on the Q3’ s body, interior and base options. You’ll still get your money’s worth and then some. Starting with the motor, the base spec comes equipped with a 1.5 liter 4 cylinder turbo motor. Yes, the base spec is front wheel drive but so what? Its still an Audi! The motor is mated to an S Tronic transmission but you also have the option of opting for a manual transmission. When you put your foot down the car will be producing a maximum of 148 horsepower and 184 lb/ft of toque at 5,000 rpm. Fuel economy will be great as this base spec is targeted for heavy hauling on a budget.
