First Driving Impressions Audi Q3 Sportback

From the front there is hardly any difference to the well-loved, and very popular standard Q3, if in fact you can call a Q3 standard. But move to the side of the car, and a whole new world opens up. There are sharper creases on the doors, and the engineering to produce such perfectly shaped metal. Go around the back and it has a sloping roof, and looks like a very sexy coupé.

But the MK3 was the first to be called Jimny, previous ones were called different names around the world. In the UK we had SJ410 and SJ413, in Australia it was called the Sierra and all sorts of names. But in 1998 Suzuki decided to standardise the Jimny name, and so it still remains. The previous car hardly changed in 20 years, and has the longest production run of any modern car. Over 2.8 million Jimny’s have been sold worldwide, with more than 42,000 sold in the UK.
