Guess whose coming to town? Other than Santa of course. The Audi Q3 will be here in Malaysia for 2 weeks on an ASEAN preview tour.

It will be at the Audi Kuala Lumpur showroom from the 26th of December 2011 to the 1st of January 2012, and at the Audi Glenmarie showroom from the 2nd of January 2012 to the 8th of January 2012, after of which it will head out to Indonesia.

The 5-seater Q3 is a compact SUV, and the specs indicated by Euromobil lists a 2.0 liter TFSI four pot turbo engine making 170 horsepower at 4,300 to 6,300rpm, and 280Nm of torque from 1,700rpm to 4,200rpm, mated to a 7-speed S-tronic dual clutch transmission. And of course, you’ll also get quattro all wheel drive. 0 to 100km/h takes 7.8 seconds.

The Audi Q3 2.0 TFSI will be on sale in Q2 of 2012. Yet another runaway success for Audi in Malaysia? If the Q3 follows the footsteps of its larger stablemates, you can expect long waiting lists! Look after the jump for a small gallery of the Audi Q3.
