We finally have the official pricing information for the 2015 Audi Q3. It will start at a pretty reasonable $33,425
(including $925). If you are looking for something fancier than the base model, you'll be paying $37,325 for the top Q3 Prestige model. The Quattro AWD system is available on all models for $2,100.
All models come with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 200 horsepower and a six-speed automatic transmission.
Where the Audi Q3 really shines is in the depth of stanard equipment that it offers customers. Here is the list of standard features: leather upholstery, heated front seats, Bluetooth, dual-zone automatic climate control, and the panoramic sunroof.
The voice-controlled MMI navigation Plus infotainment system and 14-speaker Bose stereo system are both available as options.
This puts that price higher than the rival Mercedes-Benz GLA250. As I said before though, its the standard features of the Audi Q3 that makes it special, and those features also justify the higher starting price.
One last bit of (non)news -- the Audi RS Q3 is probably not coming to the Us until model year 2016.
