Default 2015 Audi Q3 (mini-Macan) pricing leaked, starts at $32,500*

According to leaked documents from Audi Q3 Forum (right), the premium compact crossover has a starting price of $32,500 (*plus an additional destination charge of $925), for an actual cost of $33,425. That covers the front-wheel drive model with a 200-horsepower 2.0 TFSI turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. Upgrading to a version with Quattro that spins all four wheels brings the bill to $34,600 $35,525 after destination charges. In case you wanted further proof, Audi's new Q3 teaser site confirms the starting price of $32,500.

The documents list two trim levels Premium Plus and Prestige. Premium Plus includes standard features like a panoramic sunroof, heated seats, Xenon headlights with LED running lights and dual-zone climate control and more. Paying $3,900 more for Prestige adds MMI Navigation Plus, Bose surround sound, a power tailgate and other goodies.

German luxury cars often offer a mile-long list of options, but the Q3 appears to be surprisingly sparse, according to this leak. Premium Plus is available with MMI Navigation Plus for $1,900, a driver assistance package for $1,400 and power tailgate for $400. Both trims are offered with a sport package for $550, 19-inch wheels for $800, wood inlays for $350 and a black headliner is listed as a no-cost option.
It looks like a tiny Macan except for the fact that it's slower (and probably heavier knowing Audi).

They seem to be offering a black headliner as an option more frequently in their newer cars. I like it. Previously I remember it only coming standard with S/RS models and maybe the S-line interior packages (only available on Prestige trims of course).

If you could get this fully loaded for $40k or under it will probably sell really well. I personally like the smaller SUV's for daily / in city driving. I've debated heavily on getting an x3.

They serve to real carrying or cargo potential more so than a full size car, but I just like stepping down from a car as apposed to crawling out.

Wel put.

Our outback is nearing 8 years old. With the truck in the family now, I have no real need for a wagon anymore. A small CUV would be great for the wife. She says she wants a sedan, but the car attributes she describes are a CUV/wagon. I would probably go with the VW version of this though...It is sure to be cheaper. The Tiquan or some other horrible name like that.

I'm still on board with a slightly lowered X1. A bit off-looking, but an easily upgradable 300 HP and it's often said to be one of the last good-driving BMWs...

Think it will be the next practical car.

Yeah, that's the other option, but the power is a bit too significant to overlook if an X1 winds up falling into the budget.

Not really, at least not this car.

Did a road trip last month in a buddy's Tiguan, it had about as much cargo space as my Crosstrek...if that much.

The latest wagons are a bit too expensive for what they are IMO. Seems to be a few extra grand just because it's a wagon.

Actually, if you look at it in details, all USDM-bound wagons are expensive except the Jetta Sportswagen which starts out at $21K.
The next cheapest wagon starts at $36K (Volvo V60).
So, there's a glaring $15K gap that no manufacturer seems to want to get into (SOA? Levorg? Yes? No?).

I just meant expensive relative to the equivalent 3 sedan. Unless something has changed for 2015.

Yes, you're right, the 3 wagon (328i xDrive) is just about $2,350 more than its 3 sedan counterpart.
IMO, that's not too bad for someone that was prepared to spend $40K on a BMW sedan. You do get more car for the extra $2.3K.
But, for me, it's just too much money for a sporty people/cargo hauler.

Yup, a base wagon is like $2300 more expensive than a base 328 x-drive sedan.

Edit: Dammit. You were slowing down the bmwusa server!

Just wait til X-mas when loaded X5's will be as much as a comparably equipped 328i wagon or X1 35. Gotta go where BMW wants you to...otherwise you pay waaay too much for what you get.

I showed this Audi to my wife, and she shrugged. She loves the Macan and the Q5, and the new GTI, even, but this...this gets a shrug. Wifes...
