This was significantly delayed due to a complete overhaul of Audi India’s plans after the implementation of the BS6 emission norms. Coming to the exteriors, the new-gen Audi Q3 sports a front-end design, which is clearly inspired by the company’s flagship Audi Q8 SUV.
Based on Volkswagen’s MQB platform, Volkswagen underpins the Tiguan and Skoda Kodiaq, on the same lines the new Audi Q3 is slightly longer and wider than its predecessor, with a better wheelbase. The premium SUV will get Matrix LED headlamps with daytime running lamps.
Apart from this, the car will get a large front grille and hexagonal fog lamps at the bottom of the front bumper. Coming to the side profile, the SUV-like look of the Audi Q3 is adorned with blacked-out side skirts and clear shoulder lines, giving it a more muscular look.
Apart from this, the rear of the new Audi Q3 will remain largely the same as its predecessor except for the updated LED tail-lights and reprofiled bumper. Talking about the interiors, the interiors of the Audi Q3 will sport a completely new cabin.
It will come with a lot of tech-focused features and like the international-spec variant, it could come equipped with a standard 10.25-inch digital driver’s display, coupled with a 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen. Other expected features include 360-degree camera, cruise control and park assist.
Talking about the engine available in it, in the international markets, the Audi Q3 will get a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine (power of 150 bhp), 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine in two tune states – 190 bhp and 230 bhp power and a 2.0- liter diesel engine is used.
On the other hand, talking about the India-spec Audi Q3, it gets a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine, which provides power of 190 bhp. This engine gets an all-wheel drive system with a 7-speed DCT gearbox. Post its launch in India, the Audi Q3 will compete with the Mercedes-Benz GLA, Volvo XC40 and BMW X1.
