The front fascia undergoes the most significant of the changes.

The facelifted premium SUV receives a comprehensively revamped front fascia which sports a new chrome embellished hexagonal Singleframe grille with more pronounced edges. The narrower headlamps come with standard Xenon elements with integrated daytime LED running lights. The car can also be specified with optional LED headlights.

The rear gets re-detailed taillights and a revised bumper. The interior has been carried forward but gains additional equipment.

The engine lineup has been improved to comply with the Euro 6 emission norms with up to 17% fewer CO2 emissions. The power outputs of the three TSI petrol and three TDI diesel engines range from 120 PS (118.3 bhp) to 220 PS (216.9 bhp). The engines are now equipped with the Cylinder-On-Demand technology which shuts down some cylinders when full power is not needed.

Due to their enhanced efficiency, the 1.4-liter TSI and 2.0-litre TDI engines now get the Audi Ultra badge. The range-topping RS Q3 variant’s 2.5-litre five-cylinder unit dishes out 30 PS more at 340 PS (335.2 bhp).
