The Indian subsidiary of the leading German automotive giant, Audi India seems to be on a launching spree. The company had launched a couple of vehicles earlier this year and now they have introduced the majestic SUV, AUDI Q3 in a soft launch today. This SUV was anticipated as one of the most eagerly awaited launches in the country, since quite some time. This soft launch comes very close to the quiet introduction of their splendid sedan Audi S4, which took place just a couple of days before. This well built SUV will be in direct competition with the soon to be launched BMW X1 and if all goes well, Audi India will soon take over the number one spot in the luxury car segment from its German counterpart BMW. With these two launches in quick succession, Audi India has set the ball rolling for the other automobile companies to launch their vehicles soon or else they might lose out on sales.

The Audi Q3 price is starting at Rs. 26.21 lakh onwards for the entry level variant, while the top end variant is priced at Rs. 31.49 lakh (both prices mentioned are ex-showroom Maharashtra). This powerfully built SUV is now available for booking across all the 19 exclusive dealerships of Audi India. The company has stated that there will be only 500 SUVs available for booking in the initial stage. There are quite a few interesting and notable features on the outsides of this muscular SUV.

The sides of this SUV have electrically foldable and internally adjustable wing mirrors along with astutely carved wheel arches, which have a set of stylish new 10 spoke, 17 inch alloy wheels of size 7Jx17, which adds to the flamboyance of this SUV.
