Seizing the moment has always required courage, passion, and boldness, but this is something that Jesse Timm is already accustomed to. The American-born entrepreneur knows a thing or two about making the most out of every single day, more so because he’s not only a certified chiropractor, but also a father to two adorable girls.
Being a working parent might be a lot to handle for some, but he makes sure to also prioritise well-being into his everyday life. As a Lululemon ambassador, Jesse sets aside time everyday to either workout, practice mindfulness, or lead workshops doing both, and this always keeps him on his feet and at the top of his game. Living spontaneously and making plans with his daughters — whether it’s a simple ice-cream date or going to the pool — means that he never lets his busy urban life get in the way of truly living.
His responsibilities also mean that finding the right car that encapsulates the same confidence and zest for life as him is key to making sure he gets through his day effortlessly, and it’s no surprise that the Audi Q3 is the perfect car for the job.
The second generation premium compact SUV from Audi is even more versatile, roomier and visually arresting than ever. It’s not only leaps and bounds ahead of its predecessor, but plenty others in its class.
Here’s why this crossover is one of the best driving companions to navigate the city and all its challenges with.
More road presence than ever before
Now that the Q3 has grown 97mm longer and 25mm wider than its first-generation, it’s now more head-turning that ever before. Couple that with sharper lines, the octagonal singleframe grille, and slimmer LED headlights, and you’ve got yourself a sportier, more masculine crossover with all the presence of a full-sized SUV.
Hands-free boot access
The new Audi Q3’s increased exterior dimensions translates to more space within. The three-way split backrests can be tilted in seven stages and the boot can vary its capacity between 530 to 1,525 litres. An electrically-operated tailgate opens simply by waving your foot under the bumper, which is really convenient especially when you’ve got your hands full with groceries or the kids.
Being connected with your Q3 has never been more effortless. You can now plan and enjoy your day with as little fuss as possible now that the new Audi Q3 has been tightly integrated with the myAudi app. The app connects seamlessly to your car to offer information about your vehicle, as well as the ability to transfer navigation routes to the Audi Multimedia Interface (MMI) before you even get into the car. This means that you won’t have to waste time fumbling for the correct destination if you’re in a hurry.
The 10.1-inch Audi MMI touch display offers all of the Q3’s services in a crisp, user-friendly interface. With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, your favourite tunes are but a touch away. An intuitive navigation system will choose the best route for you based on the driver’s preferences through their previous journeys, with real-time updates on weather and traffic conditions throughout the journey. You’ll also get live parking information at the touch of your fingertips, which is definitely useful during peak hour in the city.
Analogue dials are now replaced with a 10.25-inch Audi virtual cockpit, which allows you to toggle between views to configure what you want to see, and to access the information safely and comfortably when driving.
Cutting-edge parking assistance
The city’s crowded roads are hardly pleasant to drive on but the Audi Q3 wants to the extra mile for you with its cutting-edge parking assistance systems. The car’s all-round cameras give you a 360-degree view of the surroundings – an especially useful feature when navigating into and out of tight parking spots.
