Audi is preparing to launch the new Q3 in 2018. It will finally switch to the Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform and like other Q models will also grow slightly in size, up 60mm in length and 50mm in width. The wheelbase is also expected to grow slightly.
Exterior changes will bring it into line with the recently launched Q5 but the major changes will be in the interior where the new Q3 will get Audi’s Virtual Cockpit for the instrument cluster and a cleaner dashboard design.
The company is also planning a plug-in hybrid version and a full electric model, which will be based on the architecture of the Volkswagen E-Golf. At the other end of the scale, there will also be a RSQ3 utilising the company’s five-cylinder turbo. – BD Motor News
