2015 NAIAS: 2016 Audi Q3

January 16th, 2015 No comments

Audi is a brand long associated with all wheel drive, wagons, and hatchbacks.  The refreshed-for-2016 Q3, then is a natural fit into the brand’s portfolio.  The most noticeable update is to the grille, which Audi executives refer to as a ‘three-dimensional Singleframe grille.’  Whatever you call it, this apparently the new look for Audi’s signature oversized grille opening.  Audi would like to draw your attention to the unseen in the form of a 17% reduction of CO2 emissions.  We’re sure enthusiasts will be more interested to know that the Q3 offers powertrain ranging in horsepower from 120 to 220 in most markets.  The top engine will be Audi’s 2.0L TFSI.  Not a lot of power, we admit, but as the smallest of Audi’s crossover offerings there are plenty of more powerful (and larger) offerings.  Expect to see the Q3 this fall in the US.
