The launch of the Audi Q3 is beginning 2009 planned for 2010. In 2007, the Cross Coupe Quattro concept car that unofficially serves as a study for the Q3.

Under the hood of the Audi Cross Coupé Quattro houses a 2.0 TDI. This was his introduction already no diesel with unit injector more like Audi delivered largely in 2007, but a common rail diesel with 204 hp and 400 Nm. The self-igniters in the Q3 will also exclusively use common rail technology like Audi from early 2009 already doing.

The Audi Cross Coupe Quattro is equipped with permanent four-wheel drive with haldexkoppeling. An S-Tronic automatic transmission provides seamless acceleration.

Of course this study model also reflected MMI. This model debuted the MMI system with "dual view" technology: this means that the dashboard display different images for driver and passenger shows. For this, use is made of projection at different angles is: you're in the driver's seat you will see the driver with information, take your place in the passenger seat then you see the information for the passenger. This allows the driver can read the information from the onboard computer while the passenger watching a TV program. As befits a concept car, the car is also equipped with a nice thick "premium" sound system. "Ambient lighting" gives the interior extra atmosphere. We also see more back-known details such as LED taillights and "daytime running lights". Provide ventilation grilles are not traditional, but 4600 holes allow air to flow into the interior dosed. A nice trick is the touchpad that MMI can be controlled: the touchpad recognizes finger written symbols and can convert them into commands.
