The higher-spec Technology trim offers all the above and an MMI navigation system, Audi Drive Select, Virtual Cockpit Plus, ambient lighting with 30 colours, gesture-controlled tailgate, wireless charging, and a 10-speaker system.

The Audi Q3 will compete with the Mercedes-Benz GLA, BMW X1, and the Volvo XC40 in the Indian market, while the Volvo also offers an all-electric version of the SUV called the XC40 Recharge, which is sold out for the year.
