Audi India today launched the 2015 Audi Q3 (facelift) in New Delhi at a starting price of INR 28.99 lakhs, ex-Showroom, New Delhi, for the Q3 S (140 bhp diesel engine with a 6MT and front wheel drive). The regular variants of the Q3 facelift are priced at INR 33.99 lakhs for the Premium and INR 37.5 lakhs for the Premium Plus.
The Q3 facelift gets a revised front fascia with Audi’s new Singleframe grille and a new bumper, though foglights are not available. Instead, Audi says it has provided the crossover with ‘all-weather’ LED headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights.
New 17-inch Y-shaped alloy wheels, dynamic turn indicators for the rear, and three new color choices complete the exterior changes to the GLA-rival. Inside, the Q3 facelift retains its predecessor’s cabin, but gets new ‘aluminium tangent silver’ inlays on the door pads and dashboard.
The feature list of the Q3 has grown to include a navigation system, a reverse camera, 20 GB of internal storage, paddle-shifters, 2 SDHC card slots, and a sophisticated phone-pad (by placing your mobile phone on this pad, the battery of your phone is claimed to last longer as the car’s antenna helps in signal reception).
The Q3 facelift continues with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder TDI diesel engine capable of 177 bhp and 380 Nm of torque, paired to a 7-speed S-tronic gearbox with Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system. The ARAI-rated fuel efficiency is claimed at 15.73 km/l, while the top-speed is rated at 212 km/h.
