The all-new India-bound Q3 SUV will be unveiled on July 25, 2018. A small teaser was released recently that gave us a preview. The video shows the Q3 in a darkened studio, with flashes of light cascading across the bodywork. You can see key details, including an evolved version of Audi's octagonal front grille and a Q8-inspired LED light signature. The only cabin shot in the video is of a colour-changing LED backlit badge. The car will come with the latest version of Audi's MMI infotainment system and offer the brand-new Virtual Cockpit as an option.
The next-generation Q3 has new underpinnings, a roomier interior and contemporary electric architecture supporting many of Audi’s latest driver-assist systems. The New Q3 will be based on the VW Group’s widely used MQB platform and fitted with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that puts out 130hp. Its longer wheelbase allows for more rear legroom and adds width to liberate more space.
On offer will be Audi’s Virtual Cockpit display with HD graphics, a head-up display unit, a 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless smartphone charging and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. Depending on the variant you can pick either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic dual-clutch gearbox.
Audi is sticking to its plans of offering a diesel engine. The car will be on sale with a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder common rail engine in up to three states of tune: 150hp, 190hp and 240hp. All will come with an SCR filter and AdBlue injection for Euro 6 compliance. Expect the new Audi Q3 to come to India sometime next year.
