Here is a render of the Audi Q3 for its 2018 model year. The Q2 will be out by that time so the Q3 will be growing in size. It may grow from the current 172.7 inches to somewhere around 177 inches.

The 2018 will likely shed some weight as well as it will be riding on the second generation of the MQB platform.

When it comes to the engine, this 2018 Q3 will have an engine lineup that will be quite similar to the VW Tiguan. There will be a gasoline and diesel engine as well as a frugal plug-in hybrid derivative part of the e-tron family. There should be a RS Q3 model too.

That is quite lovely. I did wish they would keep the current length.

This appears to be a catchy trend in the EU - some has come from influence in China over the past 2 years - a lot more shiny bits here and there and everywhere. Can't say I'm much of a fan either. At least in most markets, Audi offers some form of Black Optik (BMW Shadowline) to offset ...

I think that the chrome on the side could be ditched and i also think that the slats in the grille could go black instead.

I doubt this will be the finished product.

...pretty DARN close - some trim will be optional in certain markets, but the overall car is it -
