Audi Q3 Vail Concept Officially Revealed


Audi has revealed their all new Q3 "Vail" concept. The idea behind this mid-sized SUV was for the ultimate vehicle to tackle any skiing or snowboarding trek up to the mountains. It features matte gray trim panels, fender flares, running boards, aluminum underbody guard, vertical grille, and unique “Energy Red” paint. The specially designed roof rack for carrying skis and snowboards also includes LED lighting for those night fittings.

Inside has special features including a charging station for flashlights or heated Thermos bottle, and a heated folding trunk mat to ensure a warm place to sit changing ski boots or shoes.

The engine is taken from the RS3 and TTRS with a 2.5L turbocharged five-cylinder engine producing 314hp and 295ft/torque. Transmission is a seven-speed S tronic matted to quattro all-wheel-drive. 0-100 km/h (62 mph) takes just 5.5 seconds and top speed of 163mph.

No word if the Vail concept will see production, but the Q3 will be released in the U.S. this spring 2012.
