Audi has unveiled its new Q3 SUV.
The second-generation model is 97mm longer and 25mm wider than the outgoing car, with a wheelbase increased by 77mm. Audi says these increased dimensions have allowed it to increase knee, head and elbow room for occupants.
Further aiding practicality, the rear seats can be moved forwards and backwards by 150mm, giving a boot space that can be increased from 530 litres to 675 litres - or to 1,575 litres when the seats are folded entirely.
A 10.25in digital instrument cluster is included as standard, but this can be upgraded to Audi's multimedia Virtual Cockpit interface and a 12.3in display, while a central touchscreen can be specced at 8.8in or 10.1in.
Standard driver assistance systems include autonomous emergency braking and lane departure warning, while adaptive cruise control will be available as an option.
Engine options are three petrols and a diesel, with power outputs ranging from 150hp to 230hp.
There will be a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel or four-wheel drive.
The new Q3 is set to arrive in showrooms in November. Prices and full specifications are yet to be confirmed.
