- The Q3 will follow the new styling introduced by new flagship Q8.
Audi is on a roll this year. As the carmaker promised last year, there will be a new Four Ring model revealed every three weeks in 2018. So after an onslaught reveal of the the flagship A8, updated A4, new-gen A6, A1 and A7, refreshed TT and the all-new Q8, Audi has dropped a teaser for the new-gen Q3. The crossover is expected to be revealed later this month.
We already know how the new Q3 would look like thanks to our exclusive digital rendering. The design language set down by the Q8 will be seen on the forthcoming Q3. As the teaser confirms, the new Q3 will feature a revolutionary design for the front fascia, quite different from the ones we have seen in the current model. The headlights will have multiple LEDs to go with the new look flanking the new grille.
The silhouette will be retained but the newer platform will help the Q3 to grow in dimension. It will also help the Q3 to distance itself from the entry-level Q2. The new MQB underpinnings will help the Q3 to shave off extra weight. The cabin too will undergo radical changes with more features and equipment. Audi's Virtual Cockpit and the latest version of MMI control will also be part of the package.
Under the hood will be the usual powertrain including the 1.5-liter TSI and a 2.0 TDI in different states of tune. More potent SQ3 will surely follow while a plug-in hybrid is also on the cards.
The second-gen Q3 is expected to be revealed anytime in the upcoming days. It will continue to rival the updated BMW X1 and the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLA apart from the Volvo XC40 and even the all-new Jaguar E-Pace. It will make its way to India sometime next year when Audi plans to bring in all its new product to our shores.
