Audi mainly targets young aged people as potential customers of Q3. Mr. Michael Perschke, Head, Audi India says: “Going by the initial excitement that the Audi Q3 has raked up it is clear that it is not only the high-flying jetsetters who are driving the Audi Luxury but it is also a hot favourite with the young go-getters that want a slice of the Q-Life”.

If you want to book an Audi Q3 for yourself, we would suggest you to hurry up, as only 50 numbers of Q3 will be available for booking in the 19 dealerships across the country!

Audi India plans to take up the number of dealerships to 25 by the end of this year.
