Product Overview

Audi Q3 (Typ 8U) facelift is a subcompact crossover in production from 2014 to 2016. It was available with a range of inline-4 engines that displaced 1.4 to 2.0 liters. Audi also marketed a high-performance variant of the Q3, the RS Q3, with a 2.5 TFSI engine.
Essentially a suited-up VW Tiguan, the Q3 has a questionable exterior styling that nonetheless proved popular in Europe, where many grew up in hatchbacks and are accustomed to its general shape.
Those who drive offroad, for work or leisure, need to think twice before pulling the trigger: the Audi Q3 is hardly the "offroader" that Audi would like you to think.
