The Q3 quattro-equipped 2.0 TFSI and 2.0 TDI models will get S line Plus specification. It includes  19” ‘five segment spoke’ design wheels and privacy glass extending from the B-pillar rearwards. The variants will be also offered with a choice of seven metallic paint finishes – Ice silver, Samoa orange, Monsoon grey, Caribou brown, Platinum beige, Cobalt blue and Glacier white.

The interior boasts perforated leather and Alcantara, cruise control, parking system plus and SD card-based SAT NAV with 6.5” colour display, as well as front sports seats with powered lumbar support, Audi Music Interface, Bluetooth interface and voice control system.
