Audi Q3 Subtle Facelift

Just caught a glance at an article of a subtle Audi Q3 facelift entering the MY2017. A bit more of an aggressive front end in the sport trim and a number of other visual updates has been released.

Larger outer air inlets, Stone Gray grille, and a blade under the center inlet becoming colour matched. Now we also have Camouflage green to replace the Tundra Brown as well.

Planning on upping to the S-Line ? You'll be getting a package that comes with diamond-pattern inserts within the air inlets, high gloss radiator grille and air inlets, new front skirt, and matte silver underbody protection.

But wait, there's more !

There is also a Audi Q3 S-Line Competition Special Edition. Adds in black accents on the wheel arches, side mirror casings, roof rails, door trim strips, and a glossy black finished lower section of the rear bumper and roof spoiler. Accompanied by new 19" wheels in glossy black with some S-Line badges on the front fenders.
Quote:
Equipped with sport suspension, Audi Drive Select dynamic handling system and driver info system, the Audi Q3 S Line Competition costs €33,050 ($37,117), while the regular model starts from €30,100 ($33,804). Prices are available in Germany and other European markets, where the facelifted Q3 will go on sale this fall.

The Q3 Sline we ordered last weekend is MY2017. So I will be able to compare soon enough (no sport though)

Keep us posted on how things go because during times when a new vehicle launches, one thing i'm always on the look out for is how experience (reliability, driving, servicing, MPG's, etc) is as it can vary due to a number of things, new car problems being a big part of it.

Yea I doubt the US will be getting any of it at all. But maybe we can get part numbers and ship pieces over if you'd like something ?

The Q3 was introduced in Europe in 2011 as a MY12.
Mid cycle refresh usually is 4 years in.

Since this is announced first in Europe in calendar 2016 for MY17, that stays in line with above.

Audi had a minor front fascia/grill/bumper & rear light refresh to keep up with the European changes in the US market for the 2016 model year even though the US market had just recv'd the Q3 as a MY15. Notably the same diamond-pattern inserts that fill the air inlets mentioned in the article.

That is why I would be highly suspect that this almost full-on cosmetic treatment & trim level additions will come to the USA. But I could be eating crow!

That said, I love this chin profile:

We MAY get the split grill and the grey accents, but most of the rest - don't hold your breath ...
I had to get my 2015 S-line front bumper from the UK and as far as I know, it's the ONLY one in the US (and with eCode rear lights too).

Seems like they'll have to be ordered indeed then. Nonetheless, it'll be done !

Just got my 2017 Audi Q3 S-Line with sports package last month and it does not have the split grille. The exhaust pipes are next to each other and the rims are matte titanium finish (part of the sports package) instead of the glossy black rims as described in the post above.
