Test Drive: Audi Q3 TFSI Ultra

Test Drive: Audi Q3 TFSI Ultra

Think front-wheel drive and 1.4 gasoline – too lean for premium cross? And if a small cross? Still sad as breakfast ballerina? Well, I thought so, too, when he took a test about basic version of Q3.
Type leaf lettuce can not eat. And anyway, who in Russia needs most modest version of a premium wheelbarrows? Is that miserable self-Maid girl who did not even give the correct machines. All salaries are fed bankers for a car loan, while they themselves eat oatmeal … but I do not suffer brendofiliey. I was on the bare glamor can not take, I thought, sticking stirrer first gear.

Yes, there is also a box melee. Even the white peaks of the Alps are now blush with shame for our skopidomstvo with Q3. After all, on the shores of Lake Geneva, where we fell from Q3 to ride together, every second Audi – this RS: such steps “eresok” can not be found anywhere else. And anything that they feel sick the same 50-90-130 km / h, although the wiring petrol tanks – Ponte expensive.

And we have – only one-and-four. Yes, and record-holder maloezhka: able to disable two of the four cylinders. According to his passport – 5.5 liters per cycle. Because instead of the usual “quattro” on the bow and stern written “ultra”. That will push on the gas, and you will hear ultrasound – thinner than a mosquito squeak …
Wow! No, this is not all, here one, and as many as four! Die melancholy: it turns out, turbo, direct injection and other advanced shamanism business know – 150 horses and 250 Newtons always driven. And in the fifth, and with four adults and their suitcases, and with an almost blank. A lever mechanics easily and accurately gear touches each other – over a hundred never shameful 9 seconds. Even in long-stroke folksovski third pedal is not annoying: the clutch takes the bottom, so be cautious, waving foot, is not necessary. Precise steering, smooth running, elegant finish, too have not gone away. Salon quite spacious for this size: free sitting for a half uncle himself. And all this for a million four? Just a holiday of some sort!

By the way, to the shores of the lake we begin acquaintance with “the Swiss around the world traveling.” Travel Grand Tour of Switzerland made so that for one trip you can see the four parts of Switzerland, each of which speaks its own language, 22 lake, 11 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Alps and the most beautiful places that are often outside the popular tourist routes . On the way to Lausanne and then I have to force myself to look at the road – views are such that it would be desirable to slow down in every other turn. Nevertheless, we still get to Lausanne, rather, to its most recognizable hotel – Beau Rivage Palace. It stands directly on the shore of Lake Geneva, and believe that you are in a busy city, quite difficult. Especially lying on a lounger by the outdoor pool or strolling in the shady garden.

However, our low-budget (if such a term is in principle applicable to premium-mobile) car here very out of place. Because it has everything to be proud of what the automotive coterie. However, climate, color screen, a beautiful brown leather seats and LED headlamps – not the base and not a penny. But just to save on sin: that’s all the premium is. But a small motor monoprivod and pen on my Audi is no longer afraid.

From Lausanne “krugoshveytsarka” leads to Montreux and Vevey – a small town on the shores of Lake Geneva. Montreux Palace Hotel for over 17 years has lived the writer Vladimir Nabokov. Every morning, he went on foot to the mountain towering above Montreux Rochers de not to catch butterflies and walk, enjoying views of the lake and the Alps (the route least likable today). Montreux and Vevey neighbor, who was so fond of Charlie Chaplin, and the nearby village called Montreux Riviera. Indeed, on the waterfront Spikes palms, magnolias and other Mediterranean vegetation. No wonder among lovers in Montreux enough star of the first magnitude. And, perhaps, the brightest of them – is Freddie Mercury. The Mountain Studios, which bought the group were recorded as many as six albums. And today we can not only look at the costumes, disks and manuscripts Freddie and other musicians, but also to record their version hits Queen (studio is located in the Casino of Montreux).

What are we? Switzerland, Casino, Freddie, “Audi” … Oh yeah, about the girls. It turns out that self-Maid girls at the most affordable versions of the most expensive cars – not a victim of snobbery, and a sample of judgment. And really, why spend more? Especially in those dashing times as now.
