Audi confirms the Cross Coupe will turn into the Q3 in Martorell, Spain

Audi has confirmed it will produce the new Q3, previously known as the Cross Coupe Concept. The car production will start in 2011, as well as the production of VW Lupo, but in another location: Seat's Martorell plant, in Spain.

The factory already produces all cars from Seat, apart from Alhambra. From the new Q3, the factory will be able to deliver 80,000 units every year. Besides Q3, which will be built over the A3 platform, Martorell is also expected to produce Seat's future SUV, the Tribu.

There's still no information on the technical details of the car, but they will most certainly be the same ones Cross Coupe presented. In other words, expect the new crossover to be a 4.38 m long, 1.82 m wide, 1.60 m tall vehicle witha a wheelbase of 2.60 m. The engines must range from 1.4-litre to 2-litre, powered by petrol or diesel and certainly turbocharged, with direct fuel injection. Cross Coupe has presented a 2-litre TDI engine that produces 204 bhp and 400 Nm from 2,000 rpm to 3,500 rpm. Fuel consumption is as low as 17 km/l. May these numbers reach the production version, even if the 20-inch alloy wheels remain solely on the concept.
