The Ingolstadt-based car maker plans to launch the refreshed Q3 and A6 in the second quarter of this year (April-June period), while the next generation Q7, which will receive its public debut tomorrow at the Detroit Auto Show, will arrive in India by end of this year, Twinkle Krishna, vice president of operations for Audi Chennai confirmed to the Economic Times.

To recap, the Q3 facelift was revealed towards the end of last year, and European sales are announced to start early this year. Audi's smallest SUV now comes with LED headlights, a Singeframe grille, redesigned bumpers and mildly retuned engines.
