Highlights

  • The new-gen Audi Q3 is likely to make it’s global debut next year
  • The new Audi Q3 will be bigger and lighter than the current one
  • The new Q3 will get a range of 3- and 4-cylinder turbocharged engines

The Audi Q3 is possibly one of the best-selling models in the company Q range. First launched in 2011, the Q3 SUV has gone through several major and minor facelifts and upgrades, and now, the Ingolstadt based automaker has decided to give the car a generation upgrade. The company has already started testing the next-gen Audi Q3 and recently one of the test mules of new Q3 was spotted testing with some heavy camouflage. The new-gen Audi Q3 is likely to make it’s global debut next year and as for an India launch, we do not expect it to happen before early 2019.

At the first glance, the test mule of the new Audi Q3 will appear to be a lot similar to the outgoing model, but a closer look reveals a lot of new exterior updates. The overall front of the new Q3 appears to have become sleeker with a revised hexagonal grille, likely to come with chrome surrounds, all-new headlamps that come in wraparound design, a new front bumper that housed redesigned air intakes and a larger central airdam.

New Audi Q3 has grown in size and is now longer than the outgoing model

From the sides, the new Audi Q3 looks like it has grown a bit in size, especially the length, which could be because of the larger rear overhangs. The larger size could also be a way to differentiate the car from the company’s new smallest SUV – the Audi Q2. The design of the C-pillar also appears to have changed but with all that camouflage it’s a bit hard to tell. The car also gets a slightly larger roof-mounted spoiler and of course, we will find new alloy wheels, roof rails, and ORVMs. At the rear, the new Q3 comes with a net set of two-piece taillights and a new tailgate, which is now narrower and there is also new rear bumper.
