The Q3 is an entry-level model of this German car maker, when it is about crossovers. It is the smallest model in the company’s lineup, of course if we don’t count new Q1, which isn’t launched yet. Anyway, this compact crossover is in production since 2012. This year, it will come refreshed and, which is more important, it will finally come in North America, as 2016 year model. It will come with the all of the changes that came with this facelift. This basically means that 2017 Audi Q3 will not feature any major change.
2017 Audi Q3 details
As we already mentioned, 2017 Audi Q3 will come only a year after its debut in United States. This basically means that we shouldn’t expect any bigger modifications. It will feature all of the characteristics that came with this refreshment. These changes include new, improved exterior look, which comes with several modifications, mostly at the front end. Refreshed model features a slightly revisited front grille, which comes with new chrome ring that connect lights. The new Audi Q3 will also feature this change, just like new air intakes and sportier bumpers. Rear end comes with new taillights. Same thing is with interior. The 2017 Q3 will come with the pretty much same characteristics as 2016 year model. We will see slightly modified dashboard, which combines digital controls mounted on large touchscreen with many traditional analog buttons and knobs.

Changes on 2017 Audi Q3 aren’t expected when it is about engines. For the U.S. market, this compact luxury crossover is offered just in two variants. The base engine is a 2.0 liter TFSI gasoline engine, which outputs 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. There is also a diesel engine in offer. It is a 2.5 liter, 5-cylinder turbodiesel engine, which is good enough for 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are paired with 6-speed automatic transmission. However, we won’t be surprised if we see one or few new engines in offer for 2017 Q3.
