The taut sporty design of the exterior is continued in the interior of the Audi Q3 Sportback. The accentuated horizontal lines make the interior appear spacious and roomy. The robust look of the door panels reflects the strong character of the SUV coupé.
In the style of the large Audi models: the cockpit
The instrument panel is designed in two zones, which makes it appear particularly wide: The upper zone integrates the air vents while the lower zone constitutes the operating level. The ergonomics concept is based on the brand’s larger models. The central element is the optional MMI touch display, which is almost imperceptibly embedded in a high-gloss black glass-look surround in the deactivated state. Like the Singleframe, it has eight sides and also encompasses the light button module. The ergonomics of the whole cockpit are designed to face toward the driver. Just like the MMI touch display, the center console with the climate control unit is tilted toward the driver by ten degrees.
Progressive and sporty: the equipment lines
Thanks to the flexible lines concept and the comprehensive range of colors and materials, customers can also customize the interior of their Audi Q3 Sportback to a considerable degree. The inlays at the front of the instrument panel are available in five designs. Two exclusive materials will be offered in addition via the Audi exclusive program: piano lacquer and carbon. The seat upholstery is available in fabric, leatherette, leather and Alcantara. Depending on the equipment lines, customers can choose between the colors amber brown, lunar silver, okapi brown, pando gray, pearl beige, rotor gray, black, black-red and steel gray. The aluminum-look package lends an even higher level of cool elegance to the interior.
All three equipment lines – the basic version, the interior design selection and the interior S line – can be combined in any number of ways with the exterior lines. Both options feature sport seats that are covered with a combination of fabric and leatherette and adorned with contrasting stitching. In the interior design selection, a thin accent stripe runs along the side bolsters depending on which seat color has been selected. In addition, Alcantara surfaces on the instrument panel and the armrests underline the progressive design philosophy. They are available in amber brown, lunar silver, orange and steel gray at the customer’s request. In the interior S line, the seat backrests feature the embossed S logo, and the sport leather steering wheel bears a corresponding emblem. The pedal caps and footrest are made of stainless steel. Inlays in dark aluminum and door sill trims with illuminated aluminum inlays emphasize the sporty look.
In the dark, two optional lighting packages highlight specific areas of the interior – the ambient lighting package and the multi-color contour/ambient lighting package. With the indirectly, extensively radiated ambient lighting, door panels and center tunnels look as if they are floating, whereas the focused contour lighting traces the concise design lines of the interior. The top-of-the-range version is standard in the interior design selection. Here, the light can be adjusted in 30 colors, and also backlights the quattro logo on the passenger side of the dashboard as well as the Audi rings in front-wheel-drive models.
