Audi has finally made it official that their BMW X1 rival – Audi Q3 will debut at the Shanghai Motor Show on April 19th. The junior crossover will be offered in 2 engine choices and 3 power outputs:

• 2.0-liter TFSI with 168 hp
• 2.0-liter TFSI with 208 hp
• 2.0-liter TDI with 168 hp

After unveil, the company says that the Q3 will enter production later this year and will be produced at SEAT's factory in Martorell, Spain later this year.

Unlike other German cars, we predict that this baby crossover will hit the Indian market immediately after the global debut. Otherwise, the BMW X1 will only extend its lead in the market. The Q3 will be assembled at the VW Group factory in Aurangabad. We can expect the formal unveiling during the Auto Expo 2012.

Mercedes’s X1 rival – Mercedes GLC will only be completed by the end of 2013.
