The Q3-based special edition is priced at Rs 40.76 lakh while the Q7 Design Edition’s prices start at Rs 82.37 lakh onwards.
The list of updates over the regular model for the Audi Q3 Design Edition includes a new paint finish, quattro entry lights, quattro film set, crystal clear tail lamps, Nappa leather, colour-coded key cover, etc. The vehicle can only be specified with a 2-litre diesel engine, but gets quattro AWD system and decent performance to back the solid styling: 0-100 kph in 7.9 seconds.
On the other hand, the Audi Q7 Design Edition can be specified with either the 2-litre turbocharged petrol or an equally potent 3-litre diesel. Both variants come with 8-speed tiptronic gearbox and quattro AWD system.
