The third and most compact member of the Audi Q series, the Q3 is available here in two models, both fitted with two-litre turbocharged, FSI petrol engines, a seven-speed S-tronic gearbox and quattro four-wheel drive.

Technical sophistication

Audi has launched several exciting new cars in Hong Kong over the past year, from the chic A1 compact and the halo R8 convertible, to the sleek A7 Sportback 3.0 TFSI quattro (HK$857,700) and plush A8L 4.2 FSI quattro limousine (HK$1,769,050) which stretched VIPs to last month's Van Cleef & Arpels store opening in Central.

Hooked on a feline

The Jaguar XF comes in several guises and engine sizes, and now there's a three-litre V-6 'Sport' model available in Hong Kong to complement this already sporty series.

Wheels of fortune for mainland bureaucrats

Hong Kong may be gloating over its success as the world's top raiser of IPO funds, amounting to HK$440 billion in 2010. But that kind of money is peanuts on the mainland.

It would not even be enough to keep our senior comrades comfy in their luxury sedans.

Audi's Avant offers supercharged value for money

It takes a keen eye to spot the subtle visual differences that separate the new Audi S4 Avant from its less powerful and considerably cheaper sibling, the A4 Avant. Four exhaust pipes, skimpy side skirts and brushed aluminium door mirror covers are the only indications that this is in fact a Q-car, a veritable wolf in sheep's clothing.
