SQ3 - would you want one- BUY one for $51K

If you could buy an SQ3 : 2.0 TFSI 290 hp S-Tronic (DSG) Carbon Atlas trim, RS bumpers and grill, Sport Suspension (lowered about 20-25 mm) Flat bottom steering wheel in Air leather (like mine), matching leather shift boot (like mine), in Prestige trim - nice 19" or 20" wheels, would you line up to purchase with a base price of $51K??

Take the Poll -

I really like the sound of this, but I would have to see and drive it to know for sure.

Yes, I want one and would swap mine out for one. I am very happy with my Q3 but would enjoy a higher zoot one too! As much as I like the S3, the Q3 fits me and my needs better so of course I would want an SQ3!!

Maaaaaaybe. I'll have test out the SQ3 first and see how it slots in with my finances.

Nope...Now I'm pretty sure I'd lust after it, but the fully loaded Q3 already pushed me to my limit on what I want to spend getting from point A to point B. Now if you can get me a 15% discount on that SQ3 you'll have me. :-)

I'd love not to have to do all those mods myself that an SQ3 would have. Is it just me or are there no plans by Audi to even make an SQ3 much less bring it here? Did I miss an announcement??

For me it would depend on the engine.

There are NO plans for an SQ3 - but a few folks have thought about how Audi might/could create one - so I put up the poll to see how y'all might respond. The engine is similar to what we already have albeit with a nice tune - this engine exists NOW in the S3, so THAT part is really pretty straightforward. The RoW already gets the DSG so THAT too is pretty straightforward - the rest are just bits here and there from the RSQ3 bin that would easily fit and add a few bucks. My guess at price is based mostly on what our cars already cost and the added bits to get where it would/could take...

If the poll shapes out a bit more before next weekend, I may take the results and the spec to the WEC race in Austin where I know I'll run into a few AoA seniors to see what they think - who knows. Audi is very keen on customer fans and what drives desire for models here - more so than I ever saw with Motorsport at BMW in my 30 car lifetime with them ...

Thanks Roger. This would be cool if it was a grassroots efforts. At the very least can we get the same engine as in the TT and GTI? That one has 220 HP and 258 ft. lbs of torque. I think the extra torque would be most welcome in the Q3!

If they make the SQ3 - please ask them for the special colors like in the S3. I really want one in Audi Yellow! My wife does not like it but I think it is amazing!!

Interesting parts bin strategy.
If Europe already has the RSQ3, why not just take a few things off of that & export it to the US at a lower price?
That'll save on any extra R&D & really just ties us over until the next gen Q3 that can come fully packaged from the beginning as a RQ3.
