At this year’s Expomóvil, Costa Rica’s most important automotive fair that runs through March 11 at the Pedregal Event Center in San Antonio de Belén, automaker Audi rolled out a new vehicle and a new service.

The 2012 Q3, Audi’s new compact SUV, will hit the streets of Central America soon. With a length of 4.4 meters, the Q3 is, according to the German carmaker, the smallest of Audi’s “Q” series of SUVs. 

Audi says that despite the Q3’s diminutive stature, the vehicle is long on Audi luxury and options.

In addition to the new ride, Audi is also unveiling Renting Audi, a new leasing system for Costa Ricans to acquire vehicles with maintenance services and insurance included in one monthly payment.

“With Renting Audi Class, you enjoy the progressiveness and sportiness of an Audi while we take care of the maintenance, repairs, customs payment and full insurance coverage, and we offer you highway assistance and vehicle substitution,” a company statement said.

Leases on Audi vehicles will be available for 12- to 36-month periods with a single monthly payment.
