The 2017 Audi Q3 is going to mark the continuation of the model being released in the US market. Since establishing the brand, the car has just been provided in its house place and American markets. The 2015 model was actually the first one ahead to America and start the expansion of the brand here. The 2017 Q3 is going to be a facelifted edition which is going to continue the popularity of the model and build-up on the premise and starting popularity of the car.
Audi Q3 is a compact crossover which began its generation in 2011 in the home judge and was first launched in US as a 2015 model. The luxury-oriented high-stance five-door quickly acquired popularity and accumulated a fan base here which is shown by the sales numbers as it shows that the model has gained a significant and a large fan base.
It seems that the second generation is going to create its way here as well as the cameras have caught a glimpse of a heavily camouflaged vehicle doing check goes and displaying an uncanny similarity on the Q3 model. Even with the camo it is apparent on what they are doing and which are some improvements that they are trying to add to the model. Making it fresh is an clear point that they are planning to do and it is certainly planning to continue the popularity of the brand even further here.
Knowing by the way the car looks we might get it next season as it is almost near its generation level. Here is what we’ve handled to find out about the car and you can read all of it inside our review.
2017 AUDI Q3 EXTERIOR
Even with the spy images, it is still an easy task to discern how the 2017 Audi Q3 will look like. It is mostly because the model shapes a look which is going to be discernibly an Audi one. It is fairly similar to the current Q3 model and adds some new components and traits for the car. The headlights are going to have a narrow form with Xenon lights and LED day running lights. The car uses a large Singleframe grille and also has the aluminum trim, LED taillights, top rails and a spoiler on the hatch. The exhaust tips are going to be integrated into the bumper and makes a different type of a rear conclusion for the car that way.
It is also planning to combine some facts with the Audi Quattro model, which bares similarity with the model that was launched in the 80s. The elements which the Q3 is going to access from the Quattro include the flared wheel arches and a rear conclusion of the similar style. The combination of these traits that is going ahead implanted with the old people makes for a great design of the car. The coupe version has yet to be established nor we are certain whether it will appear but the model is certainly planning to develop in dimensions particularly as it is placed in the slot over the Audi Q2 model.
2017 AUDI Q3 INTERIOR
The 2017 Audi Q3 is going to sport an interior which is fit for the model. It is going to sport an pristine fit which is going to be graced by some high-class finishes and extraordinary materials. The design is actually planning to follow the one seen in the Audi A4 version particularly as it has the same controls and the button configuration observed on it. Front and middle of the center stack is a large touchscreen and the Audi’s Electronic Cockpit is placed around the gauge chaos area. The leather upholstery is going to be a standard fit for the car and it is also planning ahead obtainable in various different colors.
Audi also noted that they are keeping their 2017 Audi Q3 as one of the safest cars on the market, which is exemplified by the safety technology updates that the model comes with. These generally include automated braking, lane-keep help, pedestrian monitor, rear cross traffic attentive and a blind place monitor. Other technical updates may include a Wi-Fi hotspot, Wireless connection, navigation and voice control. As the model comes with increased sizes, there is going to be some added space in the cargo place but the rear seating is also planning to be much more comfortable and contain more space.
2017 AUDI Q3 ENGINE
The 2017 Audi Q3 is actually planning to keep the drivetrain choices for the American market as before, so regrettably there is not planning to be an update with the engine options. This will mean the use of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine which is matted to a six-speed automatic transmission and is going to be provided in both FWD and AWD. This will bring the output level to 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque.
There are talks about a diesel plan also being provided here but there are no verification and even though there have been there it is surely maybe not planning to appear in the US market. Also something that we are not planning to have in America is the RS Q3 edition which is going to use a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine which produces 340 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque.
