Audi’s small 1.4 TFSI petrol engine debuts in the compact Q3 SUV this week, introducing a new entry-level option for the range.

Already driving a handful of VW Group models, the new $42,300 1.4 TFSI model cuts the price of entry into the 2014 Q3 club by more than $5000.

The new model’s debut also marks the return of a two-wheel-drive offering, with the Q3 range most recently available only in all-wheel-drive quattro form.

The Q3 1.4 TFSI shares its features list with the 2.0 TDI quattro model, including 17-inch alloy wheels, leather-appointed cabin, rear parking sensors, cruise control, auto headlights and wipers, and dual-zone climate control.

There’s also a multi-function leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth phone and media connectivity, roof rails and black-framed windows.

Option packs include the $2000 Style Package, the $3790 Technik Package, the $3990 Comfort Package and the $1250 Assistance Package (see details below).

The wheels can also be upgraded to 18-inch rims for $6000, and 19-inch rims for $7000.

The 1.4 TFSI four-cylinder engine produces 110kW from 5000-6000rpm, and 250Nm of torque from 1750-3000rpm.

Mated to Audi’s S Tronic seven-speed automatic transmission, the new model claims fuel consumption figures of 6.2 l/100km and a 0-100km/h time of 8.9 seconds.
