November 8, 2016: Audi India had launched the facelift version of Q3 compact luxury SUV at Rs. 28.99 lakh (Ex-Showroom New Delhi) last year and is now offering exclusive discounts ahead of the 2016 festive season. Recently, in order to attract more buyers towards this baby-SUV, Audi launched a special ‘Dynamic Edition’ of the Q3 priced at Rs 39.78 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) in October 2016. To maintain its exclusivity, only 101 units will be made available to the Indian buyers. This new variant includes features such as Audi e – LED; all LED headlamps, Audi logo projection carpet lamps on front doors, refreshed front lower bumper and lip spoiler, sporty air Inlet cover, Quattro label on rear doors, clear lens tail lamps to improve visibility, LED interior lighting package along with power-adjustable front seats, full paint finish on wheel arches along with front and rear bumpers and side rocker moldings. There won’t be any mechanical changes done to its powertrain and the Dynamic Edition will only be available with the 35 TDI 2.0-litre diesel mill mated to seven-speed S tronic automatic transmission. On the whole, the latest generation Q3 gets the global styling treatment from Audi. The SUV gets a new single-frame grille, Audi calls it '3D-effect Singleframe' grille. The new grille is finished in satin chrome and merges with the headlamps (LED headlamps are optional). It is pulled by the same 2.0-liter 35 TDI 4-cylinder oil burner. The engine musters out 174 bhp @ 4200 rpm and 380 Nm of max torque extracted in-between 1750-2500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.

It is available in Delhi with an all-inclusive down payment of Rs 5.99 lakh with a 5.99 per cent rate of interest. The offer also includes an extended warranty of 3 years and a 1-year comprehensive Audi Assure insurance policy. Also available is an exchange bonus of Rs 1 lakh and the offer is valid across India with each dealership offering region-specific schemes.
The Q3 has been my favourite amongst compact SUVs. With competition coming only from the BMW X1, the Q3, with its more upmarket interior and exterior was the compact SUV to buy which I think is awesome.
The major look on the Q3 is to the front of the car. The grille is a wider chrome surround which touches the headlights on each side. The lower air intakes are enlarged slightly, and the Q3 also now comes with the option of LED headlamps on the top variant. Rest of the variants gets Xenon headla read more 0

Audi Q3 is undeniably the best car that I have ever owned. There is no doubt that they deliver the promise of 'Advancement through technology', and make it an absolute pleasure to drive, every single time. One look at it, and you know it's a typical Audi product, given its classy design. It also shows that the car was intended to be a lifestyle car, instead of a full-fledged off-roader. And that shows too. Though the strappy 2.0-litre TDI engine does deliver a high power, but the ele read more 34
One of the first Audis to get into the Indian auto market, the Q3 has been here for quite a while now. The compact SUV was meant to take on its German rivals, but with its sharper looks, good road presence and impeccable engines, it went on to rule the segment. After a series of facelifts, the SUV has grown in terms of styling and features. Whether the crossover is able to meet everybody’s expectations or not, let’s find out.
Things We Like in Q3
The quality of interiors is top notch, as is expected from a vehicle in this segment.
Reliable and time-tested engine.
Paddle shifters have been added to the automatic variants.
Things We Don't Like in Q3
Limited rear seat space; the Q3 is good for four on board and not five.
The steering is over assisting; not very responsive.
Stand Out Features
The ‘Technology Pack’ offered with the top-end variant includes a plethora of features like satellite navigation, 20GB on-board hard drive, a new sound system, and so on.
The Audi Q3 was already very successful in its segment and timely updates give it a much-needed boost to keep things that way. The diesel engine has lingered around for a while, but there is not exactly anything wrong with it to warrant a replacement.
"If you are someone who is chauffeur-driven and wants one of the best all-rounder entry level SUVs in the luxury segment, this car is for you!"
The design touches make it subtler and mature. You can take it out for a spin on the weekends too.
The Audi Q3, since its arrival, has been ruling the premium compact SUV space in India. Good looks, frugal diesel engine and aggressive pricing, made it a runaway hit and now in the newest avatar, it promises to continue the dominance. We just had a go in one on the beautiful streets of Goa to find out how it...
Competition does amazing things. Not only do the manufacturers try to get one up on each other by making a better product, but the us consumers get a load of options to choose as well before we put our hard earned money down. Now the Q3 was Audi's entry level SUV offering which proved to be an extremely able ...

Audi’s mysterious test mule has surfaced online and has left the public in utter confusion whether it is the next-generation of the company’s popular SUV – the Q3 or an all-new Q4, since what strikes the most is the roofline of test mule which resembles the TT Offroad concept from the 2014 Beijing Motor Show. The Ingolstadt-based automaker has camouflaged it in a deceiving manner. For obvious reasons, though. The manufacturer doesn’t want the world to know what new is cooking in the ‘Q’ range.
