Four cities. Four young professionals. Four brand new Audi Q3s.
And so far, a growing number of love connections.
We selected four on-the-go young professionals (YPs) in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, and Vancouver to spend a full 24 hours with a potential new love interest: The agile new Audi Q3 SUV.
And let’s just say that after bonding with the new premium set of wheels, these YPs were crushing hard. We can’t blame them; at first look alone the Q3 definitely makes a first impression in a love-at-first-sight type of way.
Our Toronto driver is entrepreneur Jennifer Dang, who’s been a staple in the city’s bridal industry for the last decade. She owns and operates a busy bridal boutique (Ferré Sposa), co-owns an upcoming online bridal accessories rental business, and has appeared as a bridal stylist on The Marilyn Denis Show, Wedding Week on Rogers, and Keasha’s Perfect Dress.
When it comes to owning a car, it’s pretty much a necessity for Dang. After all, she has precious cargo in tow – the single most important and expensive gown a woman will likely ever own.
We sat down with her to hear a little more about her experience…
Describe what you do in under 140 characters. Go.
I own and operate Toronto bridal boutique Ferré Sposa and am co-founder of LUVYT, an online bridal accessories rental business. I’m also a freelance bridal stylist.
What mobility challenges do you face in your city?
Tight parking spots, potholes, and what Torontonian doesn’t complain about the traffic?
What do you use a car for in your daily life?
I think the better question is what wouldn’t I use it for? I live right by a subway station and the only time I really take the subway is when I’m heading to my gym, which is only 5 stops away on the same subway line. Otherwise, I use my car for everything.
1. Business: Getting to and from meetings, buying trips, purchasing supplies, transportation to shoot sets, bridal shows (transportation and set up).
2. Leisure: Other than the usual, probably most notably to see my parents every weekend who live in Vaughan, and for ski-trips.
As a young urban professional, why is the freedom a car provides important to you?
Being an entrepreneur, time is so important. With a fully packed schedule, the luxury of having a car means not having to wait for anything or anyone else. The car equals efficiency.
What’s most important to you about a car?
In order of importance: Drive and handling (including 4 wheel drive), compact but spacious, fuel-efficiency…not too much to ask!
What’s the first word that comes to mind when you see the all-new Audi Q3?
That it’s a sporty SUV.
How does it make you feel to sit behind the wheel of the all-new Audi Q3?
It’s compact but spacious, making everything from parking to transporting 30 wedding gowns to our designer trunk show event a breeze!
What is the overall experience the all-new Audi Q3 offers to you?
It’s incredibly spacious but still compact and easy to drive in the city.
Why is the Audi Q3 such a good fit for the urban young professional?
I drive a sedan, so with Audi’s luxury drive and handling, I barely noticed our city’s rough roads. The spaciousness is also definitely a plus.
And finally, what to you is notable? Besides the Q3 of course…
I make business and life decisions based on three things: Love, beauty and experience. Love is where we connect, beauty is what we see, and experience is what we remember. If it’s got those, it’s notable in my books.
