Hardly any other Volkswagen Group engine is used by so many people for economical reasons than the 2.0 TDI. But being economical does not mean being economical with fun, as the latest “Q“ by ABT Sportsline attests to: at its heart is an ABT-POWER-New-Generation uprating from 184 hp / 135 kW to 210 hp / 154 kW, with top torque increased from 380 to 420. “We use our ABT Engine Control, tested for maximum dependability, and also provide comprehensive guarantees,” says CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt. Other upgraded ABT Sportsline Q3 engines for this latest Q3 will follow over the next few months.
And ABT also makes the Audi Q3 take bends in the most joyful way possible. Customers can choose between ABT suspension springs (front axle 25 mm, rear axle 35 mm lower) and an ABT height adjustable suspension kit (front axle 30 – 60 mm, rear axle 40 – 70 mm lower) for utmost flexibility.
If a car is so powerful and agile, it needs the right outfit. Therefore, ABT Sportsline provides front skirt add ons including a front spoiler, mirror caps, door strip attachments and a rear spoiler for the Audi Q3. An integral part of the ABT rear skirt set is the muffler system with its four mighty tailpipes. But the Q3’s good looks would not be complete without the right alloy wheels by the globally largest tuner of cars produced by the Volkswagen Group.
For the Audi Q3, the Bavarian company has various designs available, ranging from 18 to 21’’, and, if you want, including the right high-performance tyres. Be it the brand new FR or the ER-C and DR: with these wheels you don’t have to be shy. And if you transport passengers, welcome them with ABT door entrance lights and floor mats. For luggage, you can opt for a boot mat.
This is simply a great car, especially in its ABT Sportsline version.
