After the Audi RS6 Avant, Audi has been busy on its future production and now is being the Facelift Audi Q3 on board which is to be launched on June 18. The Q3 SUV facelift will feature only cosmetic changes, and will continue to be powered by the same engine as the old model. The Q3 SUV first arrived in India in 2012 as a completely built unit (CBU). However, the German luxury carmaker started locally assembling the Q3 next year.
Exterior changes on the new Audi Q3 SUV will include a new single-frame grille, new bumper with comparatively larger airdams, refurbished head-lamps, a little bit more chrome and new alloy wheels among others. The head-lamps will be offered along with optional LED lighting. As far as the rear is concerned, the SUV’s bumper has undergone some minute changes. Changes in the cabin may include a new steering wheel along with new accents for the dashboard.
The old Q3 S was offered with a front-wheel drive system and a 6-speed manual gearbox instead of quattro and automatic transmission.
The Audi Q3 facelift will power a 2.0-litre TDI 4-cylinder diesel engine which will produce 174bhp of power and 380Nm of maximum torque. Equipeed with a 7-speed S-tronic gearbox, the utility vehicle will feature an all-wheel drive system, which the German company calls the Quattro.
The new Audi Q3 will compete with the BMW X1, and Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class upon its arrival here.
