According to the Q3 manual and other sales literature, the intermediate ESC mode, where the console displays "OFF" with pictogram of the car on squiggly road is the off-road mode. It's the one you get with one short press from normal mode. I think it is in place of the "sport" mode that some other Audis have in their ESC controls.

I have previously read that the off-road mode of the Q3 is supposed to change torque split for the haldex system along with the other ESC parameters it changes, but I do not have a handy reference for that.
