Sleek Styling

The 2018 Audi Q3 confidently exudes style that can make the open road a little more scenic and the city a little slicker. Available LED headlights and taillights provide emphasis to the sharp angles of the Q3. The Singleframe® grille is a distinctive statement on Audi design featured on the Q3.

Performance

Combining a turbocharged 200 horsepower 2.0 liter TFSI® engine with a six-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission, the Audi Q3 proves to be capable SUV. The legendary Audi quattro® all-wheel drive system keeps the Q3 firmly planted in both dry and wet conditions. To maximize grip in dry conditions, the system maximizes traction by sending power to the wheels with the most grip. When roads get slippery, quattro® all-wheel drive can help get a grip on the situation. The available Audi drive select system allows you to choose from Comfort, Dynamic or Auto mode to help adjust the steering and throttle response of the Audi Q3.
