Throughout the month of December, Accept Car Finance will be focusing on the 12 Cars Of Christmas as a way to highlight a dozen models that are perfectly suited to the frosty temperatures, challenging weather and icy road conditions. Today, we present the Ninth Car Of Christmas, and playing the role of Nine Ladies Dancing is the Audi Q3.
Audi Q3 At A Glance
The concept of what would become the Audi Q3 was first drawn up in 2007, but it wasn’t until 2011 that the refined version of the Q3 was made available for drivers. During its first generation, the Q3 was the recipient of several intriguing updates made available on a limited scale, which included numerous concept vehicles, a model aimed at the Chinese market that had been presented as part of a motor show in the country’s capital of Beijing, and also more than one turbo model that boasted enhanced power over the typical Q3 vehicle.
That being said, the Audi Q3 also received other, more mainstream upgrades, with these tweaked motors being made available on a widespread level to motorists. One was released in 2014 and it featured a wider chrome, colour alterations and an updated design to the alloy wheels. Further design changes were made to an RS Q3 follow-up in 2015, before the true second generation version of the Audi Q3 was officially unveiled in July 2018, and began to appear in showrooms later that year. A Sportback alternative was shown to the general public for the first time at a trade event in July 2019.
Physical and technological advancements form the framework for the current iteration of the Audi Q3. There is the option to choose between a typical diesel engine or between one of three powerful petrol engines, with further alternatives pertaining to the vehicle’s gas system set to follow in 2020 and beyond. The trim levels boasted by the Q3 are impressive in number and diversity: drivers can have a choice of a Sport, S Line or Vorsprung trim line. As noted, though, the manner in which the Audi Q3 is able to embrace high-tech equipment for the betterment of the driving experience helps this model to stand out more than any of its other traits.
Indeed, the Q3 does not include an analogue display and instead provides the driver and the front seat passenger with two completely digital displays on the dashboard. These take the form of a virtual cockpit and also a touch display, with the latter located right at the centre of the front seating area. What’s more, the vehicle also comes with a delightful natural-language voice control system which can be incorporated with the likes of satellite navigation tools, and there is even a three-year subscription to Audi Connect included as part of the package, which allows for the car to be connected at the internet whenever the battery is on, along with the ability to charge mobile phone, music and tablet devices.
Suitability For Winter
Size and safety exemplify why the Audi Q3 is tailored for winter driving. Its sheer bulk and strength make the vehicle highly durable and sustainable to the trickier road conditions, and there is plenty of space to keep a travelling family comfortable and warm. The safety features are more noteworthy, however, as the Audi Q3 has optimum grip to handle any road conditions no matter how frosty or icy conditions become, as well as the likes of Audi Side Assist (which warns of and creates an invisible wall from other vehicles, which helps during particularly busy times on the road), a Lane Departure Warning System, and also a pre-sense safety system located at the front of the vehicle. An anti-slip system is the icing on the cake and a truly innovative feature which, when combined with the other aspects we have described here (not to mention the tremendous control of steering that the car provides), and its perfect five-star safety rating, and there is overwhelming evidence in favour of driving an Audi Q3 this winter.
Current Finance Plans for the Audi Q3
If you are interested in buying an Audi Q3, then now is as good a time as any to make a purchase, especially based on our existing finance deals available for the series. In particular, we would like to recommend one such plan for a 2016 registration vehicle that has a black exterior and has driven up 22,000 miles thus far. The car has a 1968 engine and runs on diesel power with manual transmission, and to buy this vehicle today would cost only £73 per week, which equates to approximately £292 per month.
There are so many traits that you could associate with an Audi Q3: innovation, based on its increased and in-depth use of cutting edge driving technology; safety, with so many features included that keep the driver and all passengers secure from any potential problems; space, with there being a lot of room to stretch legs and rest heads; size, as the magnitude of the framework gives the vehicle the feeling of being a powerhouse on the road; and also popularity, with sales figures matching the vision of those tasked with designing this motor. The Audi Q3 is still in its relative infancy, but it has already achieved great things for drivers so far. It remains to be seen as to what we might get from the Audi Q3 in the years to come, but as things stand, the current second generation Audi Q3 vehicle is an outstanding model, one well worthy of being amongst our 12 Cars Of Christmas, and it is a must-own for drivers still needing a top-class vehicle for the incoming winter season.
