Audi Brings the 2016 Q3 Facelift to Detroit

by SpeedLux

On its booth at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) event, the luxury German automaker, Audi, has brought the facelift version of its Q3 vehicle model. Needless to say, it is always interesting to find out what a facelift may probably have in store in spite of its minor redesigned visual styling.

Well, as it turns out, for the 2016 Q3 facelift, Audi is trying to attract prospective buyers with a new front grille that now features a single frame, but that is just for the start. The car also sports a pair of newly designed headlights and taillights. In addition to that, the front and rear bumpers of the vehicle have been modified quite heavily as well. Being a crossover, the car has also been treated with a newly designed rear diffuser and turn signals on its side mirrors. Overall, however, it takes only seconds to recognize that this is the Q3 from Audi.

As for the cabin of the vehicle, there is not much to expect. Yet, the car comes with an extendable cover for its cargo compartment and additional chrome trims. Unfortunately, perhaps, it seems like that’s about all when it comes to the interior of the vehicle.

The 2016 Audi Q3 facelift will also reportedly come with six variants of turbocharged 4-cylinder engines. Powers are rated at 120 PS, 220 PS and 340 PS. The latter can be obtained if buyers spend their money on the range-topping trim of the 2016 Audi Q3, the RS trim. Under the hood of this one, lies a 2.5L 5-cylinder engine capable of 340 PS and 450 Nm of power and torque, respectively. The car will also come with a Quattro AWD drivetrain typical of Audi and a 7-speed S-tronic transmission. It takes the car only 4.8 seconds to go from 0-100 km/h and its top speed lies at 250 km/h. Sales of the vehicle will start this February in Germany.
