Friday, May 5th 2017. | Audi


At the last Paris Auto Show, Audi unveiled their new Q5 with the lighter, more efficient, more dynamic and better-equipped design to offer. The similar story will be added for the new 2018 Audi Q3. It is not something surprising that the prototype version was spotted. It is still entering the first phase of the testing performance, and it was spotted with heavily camouflaged look. Some substantial changes are added to complete this all-new car.

2018 Audi Q3 Exterior

Audi Q3 2018 will be available in the second generation, and it is expected to have significant upgrades. The main change will be the platform. It would not go with the same PQ35 platform as the previous model, but the company will move to the modular VW Group architecture. This can be helpful to give lighter weight for the car especially for the base models that will go with smaller engines. The platform is MQB that will improve the dynamics, the styling, and the interior. Other than that, the prototype will get the sharper single-frame grille, new LED lighting, upgraded hood and fender as well as sculpted belt line. There will be minor changes to the rear end.

2018 Audi Q3 Interior

With the new platform, Audi Q3 has extra legroom and more well-arranged seats to provide better headroom compared to the previous model. With the more compact design, likely it will use the same design language as the Q5. It has high-quality materials with the well-designed controls, long list of standard features, expanded rear legroom for ultimate comfort and upgraded safety features.

2018 Audi Q3 Engine

New Audi Q3 will use some engines from the new version of VW Tiguan. If so, there will be turbocharged four-cylinder petrol, and diesel units with different outputs depend on the market. Besides, Audi will also launch their e-tron version. The front wheel drive and all-wheel drive will be presented. The car will offer enhanced structural rigidity and reduced weight to offer better stability and more fuel-efficient performance. However, all the things about the engine details are still unknown.

2018 Audi Q3 Release Date and Price

2018 Audi Q3 is expected to come out at the end of 2017 or the beginning of 2018. Its current price is still competitive, but with all changes around the new version, it seems that there will be a slight increase. Since all information here is still based on rumors and the official has not confirmed anything yet, we cannot grant that any words here are valid.
