2015 Audi Q3 facelift officially unveiled image

The 2015 Audi Q3 has been officially unveiled as the model will kick off its deliveries next February.

The facelifted version of the Audi Q3 has went official. The model in question is coming with some subtle tweaks which should be enough to put some space between it and the current version. The smallest crossover currently produced by Audi has a single frame trapezoidal front grille, new headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED headlights available as an option, LED taillights and several other tweaks.

As far as the engine lineup goes, the updated version of the Q3 will come with three TFSI petrol burners and three TDI four-cylinder diesel units, all of them turbocharged and emitting up to 17 percent less CO2 than before. All engines are also Euro 6 compliant and they have a displacement varying from 1.4 to 2.0 liters and a total output which is ranging between 120 HP (88 kW) and 220 HP (162 kW).

The 2015 Audi RS Q3 will continue to be offered with a 2.5 liter five-cylinder turbocharged gasoline burner, which is now rated at 340 HP (250 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 7-speed S tronic transmission which is sending power to the Quattro AWD system. This means an extra 30 HP and 30 Nm of torque compared to the current version. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint takes 4.8 seconds, 0.7s quicker, and top speed is still electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). Prices for the base model will start from 29,600 euros while the range topper will come in at 56,600 euros.
