The front of the 2018 Audi Q3 has a redesigned grille, wider than the model currently on sale. There are also cool headlights, suggesting that the Q3 will be in line with the frontal designs seen on the recently updated A5 and A8. The profile will look like that of the new Q5, although it is of course reduced. Our exclusive image shows what the new Audi Q3 2018 will look like once the envelopes are removed. The 2018 Audi Q3 currently on sale is the oldest model in the range of the German brand, so that big changes are planned under the skin. There will be a brand new cab and a brand new platform to update the Q3 with the rest of the Audi lineup.

2018 Audi Q3 Performance

The powertrain consists of a 2.0-liter turbo-4 developing 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission. This engine is exceptionally well tuned and responsive, and the transmission has well spaced ratios and delivers confidence changes. All 207 lb-ft of torque is available at 2,000 rpm, which helps get out of traffic. However, at around 3500 pounds, the 2018 Audi Q3 is heavier than it looks and the 0-60 mph pass takes a pedestrian 7.8 seconds with front-wheel drive or 8.2 seconds with all-wheel drive. The maximum speed is 130 mph, but you will probably need patience to get there. If power and performance are the goals, the Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 is the only choice in this category.
