Audi unveiled their special themed vehicle, the Q3 Vail compact SUV, at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this week. The Vail inspired vehicle is named after the famous Winter Sports venue in Vail, CO.
The Audi Q3 Vail is powered by a 2.4-liter five-cylinder turbocharged engine that unleashes 314 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. That’ll get your heart pumping for sure. The Audi Q3 Vail also put in special features for the Winter Sport fan. A thermos in the cup holder in the front is able to be heated or chilled for your favorite drink. The side wall of the trunk also has a charging station to allow for storing and charging flashlights and other electrical devices.
The coolest innovation of the Audi Q3 Vail comes from the heated seat cushions in the trunk mat. The mat can folded out of the trunk to allow for drivers and passengers to sit on it and stay warm while taking off or putting on gear. Pretty inventive!
The Q3 Vail isn’t just special with its name and performance, the color alone is specifically designed for this vehicle. The Energy Red paint color has golden pearlescent particles in it. The high-gloss color gives a unique and special look to the vehicle.
The interior features a sporty look with black, grey and red woven throughout to give the famous Audi ambience. Black leather seats are trimmed with red velvet-finish leather. The same red velvet-finish leather is found in the door trim as well.
