Audi has unveiled their latest-generation Q3. The new Audi Q3 is expected to enter the Indian market soon. The new second-generation Audi Q3 comes with a host of updates and additional features, compared to the current model on sale.
The new Audi Q3 will be a more practical SUV, with a host of additional features. The new premium SUV offering from the German car manufacturer also comes with major styling updates, inspired by its larger sibling, the new Q8.
On the exterior, the new Q3 offers slimmer LED headlamps with the optional matrix LEDs and adaptive beams, large front grille and a more pronounced shoulder line.
The new Q3 is also expected to come with larger 20-inch blacked-out alloy wheels. Audi will also offer the new Q3 in a range of vibrant dual-tone colour options, accentuating its SUV design.
The new Audi Q3 is now based on Volkswagen's MQB platform. This has allowed the Q3 to increase its overall length and width marginally. This marginal increase in dimension though has translated to a more spacious cabin.
Even the boot space of the Q3 has now increased to 675-litres with an adjustable floor. The Audi Q3 also offers 40:20:40 split-rear-folding seats, further allowing the boot space to be increased to 1,525 litres.

New features on the second-generation Audi Q3: 12.3-inch infotainment screen with Google Earth Maps and voice commands, 10.25-inch instrument cluster with a virtual cockpit, park assist features, 360-degree camera, driver assistance features and pedestrian detection functionalities.
The new Audi Q3 also offers Android auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility and a 15-speaker Bang Olufsen sound system.
Internationally, the Audi Q3 is offered with three engine options: 1.5-litre turbo-petrol, a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol and a 2.0-litre diesel. The 1.5-litre turbo-petrol produces 150bhp, while the 2.0-litre turbo-petrol is offered in two states of tune, a 190bhp and 230bhp option. The 2.0-litre diesel engine is also offered in two states of tune, producing 150bhp and 190bhp.

Thoughts On The Unveil Of The New Audi Q3
The new Audi Q3 was unveiled internationally recently. With the addition of the Audi Q2, the Q3 is no longer the entry-level SUV offering from the German car manufacturer.
The second-generation Audi Q3 is expected to enter the Indian market soon, however, details of its Indian launch is yet to be announced.
Once introduced in the Indian market, the new Audi Q3 will rival the likes of the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA and the Volvo XC40.
