The Audi RS Q3 has just received a facelift that includes not only cosmetic changes, but also some performance tweaks as well. The previous Audi RS Q3 model used a 2.5-liter TFSI five-cylinder engine that produced 310 hp and 420 Nm of torque. That has been upgraded to 340 hp and 450 Nm of torque. The improvement decreases the vehicle's 0-100 km/h time to 4.8 seconds. A pretty big jump considering that the previous generation took 5.5 seconds to accelerate to 100 km/h.

The new model is equipped with a seven-speed S tronic transmission. It has a Quattro drivetrain and a new hydraulic multi-place clutch. 19-inch wheels are offered as astandard and 20-inch wheels are offered as an option. It is also equipped with an RS sport suspension and adaptive dampers.

The steering is geared for sporty driving through the Audi drive select dynamic handling system which comes standard.

As far as looks go, the Audi RS Q3 has new front and rear bumpers, redesigned headlights with xenon technology and LED daytime running lights, a new Singleframe grille, and redesigned LED taillights.

In Germany the Audi RS Q3 will start at 56,600 euros.

Starting to think about how the chrome trim would look blacked out and I have to say... it's something that might just make it better to me.

Do you prefer the facelifted grille or the grille from the pre-facelifted Q3?

The new look sits well with me, but not as it is, i'd have to add my own touch to it, which would consist of the silver looking area around the grille being blacked out

...especially the S-line version with an RSQ3 grill >:D

But I will say the Black Optik version of the facelift is not too bad ...

Wish we could see a picture that showed the new grille blacked out. Any photo shoppers out there?

alright I take that statement back about the trim being in black. With a black trim, it looks like someone gave it a black eye!

On a serious note, it just doesn't work well with red, on a black Q3, blacked out trim will look MUCH better.

I think the black grille may look better on a different color, but in this particular case I think that it makes the Q3 look worse. The black kinda makes it look cheaper in my opinion.
