Default 0 - 60 in 8.2 seconds!

According to audiusa.com. That's 2 seconds slower than the X1. The Q3 may look nicer inside and out and have more standard features, but that's just too slow.

It's the same drivetrain as the Tiguan, not going to be much of a performance difference. Just head over to an APR dealer if you need more.

... together with tiptronic (not S-tronic), the 200HP motor, no Homelink and it appears not the latest MMI, quite a disappointment altogether.

I really do not want to pull an X1 next to the Q5. Having a 3-series there is bad enough.

Pretty sure that it's going to be S-Tronic... the euro spec sheet http://www.audi.co.uk/content/dam/au...cGuides/q3.pdf says it's S-Tronic and I don't think they're going to re-engineer the whole thing for the US market. Someone in marketing probably thinks tiptronic sounds better.

The Tiguan has the dual clutch in the ROW markets as well, but it gets the Aisin automatic in the US just like the Q3 will.

Audi Q3 2015

Page 43 states 6 speed automatic

Page 64 has the gear ratios for the automatic, they're the exact same as the Tiguan's ratios.

Actually the Q3 is better equipped for the same price based on the current pricing guide. I'd much rather have a Q3 Prestige with the Sport package then a Tiguan R-Line. Power tailgate makes it worth it alone.

How can a q3 be an overpriced Tiguan?

I just checked out the nicer R lines, and they're 38-39 grand. And that's FWD.

A top end prestige q3 with all the goodies, 19 inch wheels and sport package is 41k. And that's Quattro. The q3 no doubt has a nicer interior and more amenities. Does the Tiguan even have leather seats?

You can't win the pricing argument there.

My days of being concerned with speed are over, or at least calmed down. I can live with the 200HP engine. Wanting to get down to one car to share with wife, both of us are retired. ( bike is the other mode now)
For long trips with a kayak on top , does the Q3 have a rack option or is aftermarket what is needed?
Going to sell my 2012 White TT with 12K miles on it, a garage queen. Maybe trade in the Lexus CT, just thinking the Q3 may be the right vehicle to do all the duties.

This is most unfortunate. Maybe the RS version will get it right... I can only hope, otherwise i think i'd just get the X1
