With the popularity of the mini Audi SUV, the 1.4 TFSI will hopefully attract even more buyers with its spritely 110kW/250Nm engine that will push you from 0-100km/h in 8.9 seconds.

As the Q3 finds itself in the targets of young, environmentally conscious buyers the fuel economy of 6.2litres per 100km and emissions of 145g/km should put them at ease. Especially since this engine is a petrol, and not a diesel.
