24 Hours in Vancouver With the New Audi Q3

We gave four young professionals from four different Canadian cities the chance to get behind the wheel of the brand new Audi Q3 for a full 24 hours. And we couldn't be more excited to share the results

We told you we were doing this.

Four cities. Four young professionals. Four brand new Audi Q3s.

And we couldn’t be more excited to share the results.

After each of our drivers spent a full 24hrs with their new set of premium wheels we sat down with them to hear all about the experience.

What came back was a collection of compliments usually reserved for love letters. Then again, maybe that’s exactly what happens when you step into the new Q3 – you fall in love.

Last stop: Vancouver. 

Not one, but two young professionals, sisters Lauren and Mariel Armstrong – the successful fashionable duo behind the PartySkirts by SKOT line – got behind the wheel of the all-new Q3 to tackle their usual day-to-day.

As lovers of all things luxurious, they were smitten with upgrading to an SUV size that matched their ongoing ambition to take over stylish closets around the world one skirt (and inspiring step) at a time.

Lauren and Mariel took the Q3 for a spin while also managing to make the most of preparing for the holidays:

Describe what you do in under 140 characters. Go.
We connect people everyday with PARTYSKIRTS by SKOT! We’re a local company that manufacturers in Vancouver, though we’ve sent our PARTYSKIRTS all over the world.

What mobility challenges do you face in your city?
Everyday is different for us. In Vancouver, one little thing can completely change our situation on the road. We are sure other drives in our city feel the same way.  

What do you use a car for in your daily life?
It often feels like our cars are actually our offices. We are constantly on the go – to the office, to a meeting, to the factory to pick up goods, and the other millions of things that we are tackling.

As a young urban professional, why is the freedom a car provides important to you?
A car provides us with the freedom to respond to issues that come up in our business to deal with them face to face. Sometimes being on the other end of the phone or on a computer just doesn’t cut it. If there is something going on at the factory or with a shipment being delivered – we would rather drive there and deal with it in person.

What’s most important to you about a car?
Safety and space.

What’s the first word that comes to mind when you see the all-new Audi Q3?

How does it make you feel to sit behind the wheel of the all-new Audi Q3?
We felt great behind the wheel of the Audi Q3! Not only was it so comfortable to drive, it didn’t feel too too big, yet we filled the trunk with a ton of boxes! 

What is the overall experience the all-new Audi Q3 offers to you?
We had an excellent experience with the Audi Q3; this car was a dream to drive. Especially in Vancouver’s rainy conditions!

Why is the Audi Q3 such a good fit for the urban young professional? 
This car is such a good fit for young professionals like us because it allowed us to get everything done we needed to do in the day as well as allowing us to feel stylish.

And finally, what to you is notable? Besides the Q3 of course…
Giving back; it is important to us to be a role model for young girls who want to follow their dreams, whatever their dreams may be…
