Audi will be launching the facelifted version of the Q3 later on this year in the United States.

The 2016 Audi Q3 has been announced for the over-seas auto market. The model in question is coming with the subtle styling tweaks, with the xenon headlights, with the LED taillights, the 18-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels, the expanded color palette which has brought the Cuvee Silver, the Misano Red, the Hainan Blue and the Utopia Blue to the range and several other modifications.

“Audi today announced pricing for the 2016 Q3. The redesigned compact crossover now boasts a wider array of standard features, including front and rear parking sensors with a rearview camera, as well as an updated dynamic exterior styling for a balance of luxury and functionality”, says the carmaker in its official press release.

The facelifted version of the Audi Q3 has been equipped with the LED interior lighting too, along with the panoramic sunroof, the Alu-optic MMI controls, the heated leather front seats, the standard rearview camera, the new cargo cover and so on. As far as the engine goes, the compact crossover has the 2.0 liter TFSI four-cylinder unit under its hood, which is capable of putting down 200 HP (149 kW) and 280 Nm (207 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is connected to a 6-speed Tiptronic transmission and the Quattro all-wheel drive system is available as an option. Prices for the vehicle will start from 33,700 USD and this will be launched later this year.
