    Q3 QUESTION

    May be a silly question, but is the Q3 available with an automatic box?

    What is "S-tronic (does this mean auto?)

    Is it available in petrol?


    Thanks in advance

    yes (to the second question)

    the Auto is the DSG/S-Tronic gearbox and it is really good

    I have it on my 177TDI, from memory it is only available on the 177tdi quattro and all the Petrol models

    Thanks for reply - would the gearbox be the same as my A3 2.0 TDI S-Line?

    Anything to watch out for when buying?

    Cheers

    I am not 100% sure, but most likely yes.

    only thing I found was the deal I got on a diesel was better than what was available on the petrol, I went in looking for a 211bhp auto Petrol, but as they had more diesels in build or in UK stock there was more room on the deal to get a better price, plus shorter delivery time and also if going for finance the GFV is higher for the Diesel so you get lower payments for the same price car.

    the Q3 is pretty much the best family car we've had, so good I sold my M3 as it was just sitting on the drive every weekend, as the Q3 just did everything better as a family car.
