Audi has officially announced that the upcoming 2011 Audi Q3 will be produced at its Martorell plant in Spain. The company plans to build 80,000 units of the Audi Q3 per year. The 2011 Audi Q3 will join the Audi A1 in the compact segment and will be a coupe-like five-door SUV.
As a small SUV, the Audi Q3 will join the family consisting of the Audi Q5 (produced in Ingolstadt, Germany) and the Audi Q7 (produced in Bratislava, Slovakia). Yet another compact vehicle in a new model range is thus set to join the A1 in 2011. The Q3 will further expand the Q family. A coupe-like five-door SUV with seat positions, wheel size, and ground clearance characteristic of a typical SUV, the Audi Q3 is set to stand out thanks to a sporty driving experience. The Q3 will apparently blend a compact car’s design and driving dynamics with an SUV’s versatility. The market launch of the Q3 is scheduled for 2011.
