Model Highlights

For 2015, Audi introduces an all-new luxury compact crossover in the Q3. It rides on the capable chassis found in Volkswagen's Tiguan and draws its power from a 200-horsepower direct-injected and turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. The engine is mated to a 6-speed Tiptronic automatic, and front-wheel drive is standard, while Audi's capable quattro all-wheel-drive system is optional. Audi claims the Q3 will hit 60 mph in 7.8 seconds on its way to a 130-mph top speed.

Handling is thanks to a 5-link front suspension and trapezoidal-link rear, with 12.6-inch ventilated disc brakes to stop the front wheels and 11.1-inch discs in back. Inside there is seating for five and more than 48 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seatbacks folded.

Two trims -- Premium Plus and Prestige -- are offered, and both are very well equipped. Standard features on the Premium Plus include 18-inch alloy wheels, Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seating with 12-way power front seats and Bluetooth streaming audio with hands-free connectivity. The Q3 Prestige adds a power tailgate, voice-controlled navigation, a 465-watt, 14-speaker Bose surround stereo system, Audi side assist for safer lane changing, and Parking System Plus with rearview camera.

A few packages are available on Premium Plus models, including a Driver Assistance Package with Audi side assist and rearview camera and a navigation package. A Sport Package, available on both trims, adds a leather multifunction steering wheel with shift paddles, front sport seats, and Audi drive select, which allows for changes to the Q3's driving dynamics depending upon the setting.

All Q3s come equipped with several airbags, anti-lock braking, electronic stability control and traction control, a tire-pressure monitor and hill descent assist.


Model News

The Audi Q3 luxury crossover is an all-new model for 2015. Based on the VW Tiguan platform, the compact SUV wears similar sheetmetal to its larger Audi siblings. It comes powered by a direct-injected and turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder that produces 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. A 6-speed automatic puts power to the wheels -- either through standard front-wheel drive or via the optional quattro all-wheel drive. The new Q3 is priced from $32,500.


Value Writeup

For fans of the increasingly popular segment of compact luxury crossovers, the new Audi Q3 offers plenty to like. With attractive styling reminiscent of the larger Q5 and Q7, buyers can rest assured that great things really do come in small packages. Against the likes of rival luxury utility vehicles like the Buick Encore, Lincoln MKC and BMW X1, the new Audi Q3 more than holds its own.

Summary
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2015 Audi Q3 vehicles manufactured April 4, 2014, to November 5, 2014. If the vehicle is turned off while the sunroof is closing, the sunroof may continue to close instead of stopping. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 118, "Power-Operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel Systems."

Consequence
If the sunroof is closing while the vehicle is shut off and a vehicle occupant is in its path, there is an increased risk of injury.

Audi will notify owners, and dealers will update the sunroof control module software, free of charge. The recall began on April 13, 2015. Owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 60C1.

Summary
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2016 TT roadster, A3 cabriolet, A3 sedan and A3 e-tron, 2016-2017 TT coupe, 2017 A4 sedan and Q7 and 2015-2017 Q3 vehicles. The affected vehicles may have been programmed with new software that inadvertently makes the side marker lights inoperative in conjunction with the parking lights or the headlights. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

Consequence
If the side marker lights do not illuminate, the vehicle may be less visible at night, increasing the risk of a crash.

Audi will notify owners, and dealers will upload revised software to correct the issue, free of charge. This recall began November 2016. Owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 97CB.
