Audi Q3 might get a petrol engine in India

Audi Q3 might get a petrol engine in India

Audi has recently imported a Q3 30 TFSI to India for homologation. This SUV comes powered by a 1,395cc petrol engine hinting at the carmaker's plans of introducing a petrol variant.

At present, the Audi Q3 is offered only with a 2.0-litre TDI diesel motor in our country. This mill is available in two states of tune - 138bhp and 174bhp. On the other hand, the new 1.4-litre four-cylinder engine is a turbocharged unit churning out 148bhp of power and 250Nm of torque. It comes mated to a six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. This powerplant also features the cylinder on demand function that shuts down an engine cylinder as per the running requirement for better fuel economy.

Audi has currently imported only a single unit of this Q3 30 TFSI version. This particular engine is also seen under the hood of the upcoming A4 sedan. It should be noted that Audi's entry-level A3 and A8 sedans only have petrol variants as of now. The popular Q-series SUVs are offered only in diesel options. So looking at the significant shift in demand for petrol vehicles in India, it won't be a surprise if more petrol variants are introduced in Audi India's line-up. The introduction of the new petrol engine will also mean a drop in the entry-level price tag for the Q3 range.
