Earlier today, Audi Pakistan has reduced the prices of Q3 to PKR 5.25 million. The SUV comes standard with 1.4L TSFI engine, which manages to deliver 150hp@ 5000-6000 RPM and 250 NM torque @ 1500-3500 RPM. The company, with its bold strategy, is aiming to make German CBU’s affordable and resist the stereotypes associated (with respect to cost) with owning a CBU in Pakistan.
Interestingly, in US alone, the first half of the 2016 saw an 8% (overall) increase in the sales of crossovers as compared to -6% sales of sedans. Furthermore, we have the prime example of Honda Vezel for this category in Pakistan. Technically, crossovers are based on passenger cars or hatchback platforms but with an increased ground clearance, bigger wheels they give the look of compact SUVs. In the recent years, the crossover market has been flourishing in Pakistan. Honda Vezel is the country’s most favourite crossover. But let’s not forget the Nissan Juke and the Honda HR-V.
In the past, Audi’s in Pakistan have been associated with a ‘very expensive to purchase and maintain’ vehicles, but it seems that the German vehicle importers in Pakistan have shifted in a higher gear. Audi Pakistan; following the footsteps of Deewan Motors, has apparently introduced Q3 with a new and more affordable price tag.
Stay tuned with us to find out more about Q3.
