Previewed earlier this year in Detroit, the 2015 Audi Q3 will start at $33,425 when it goes on sale here this fall. Audi will offer U.S. buyers its 5-passenger compact SUV crossover in two different trim grades, both sharing the same 2.0-liter/200-horsepower TFSI 4-cylinder engine and 6-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission. In addition to the front-drive Q3 Premium Plus, this sporty hatch hauler will be available in Prestige guise from $37,325. Adding the firm's Quattro all-wheel-drive system to either variant will bump the bottom line by $2,100, taking them to $35,525 and $39,425, respectively.

Like the recently introduced A3 Sedan with which it shares basic platform architecture, the new Audi Q3 features a lengthy roster of standard equipment highlighted by leather upholstery, heated 12-way power front seats, a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights/taillamps, Audi advanced key access and efficiency-enhancing start/stop technology.

Stepping up to Prestige spec further richens that mix with the Audi MMI Navigation Plus system that includes a 7.0-inch color display screen and Audi Connect Wi-Fi connectivity, trip computer, Driver Assistance Package (front/rear parking sensors plus rearview camera and Audi side assist) a 14-speaker/465-watt Bose Surround Sound audio system, a power tailgate, and more. Premium Plus buyers can add most of the above kit - sorry, no Audi Connect or Bose sounds - while either Q3 can be enhanced with a $550 Sport Package that includes sport seats, shifter paddles and Audi's drive select system that adjusts the shift points and throttle mapping at the touch of a button as well as a 19-inch wheel/tire combo in place of the Q3's standard 18-inch fitment.
