As we all know Audi made the decision to debut the 2015 Q3 in North America on the cusp of its mid-cycle update. Lets have a look at where the dichotomies between 2015 and 2016 lay.
First and foremost the refresh brings a $1200 price increase, with the price increase comes an increase in included kit. Front and rear parking sensors are standard along with a backup camera. Front and rear fascias also took a small trip to the drafting table and came back somewhat revised and somewhat sharper.
The 2016 Q3 Premium plus begins at $34,625 which will net you xenon headlamps, heated 12 way power leather seats, push button start, dual zone climate control and a 2.0T engine as standard. Quattro available for $2,100.
Jump to the Prestige trim for $39,525 which adds navigation, Audi apps, Wi-Fi hotspot, 14 speaker Bose system, power tail gate and blindspot alert. LED headlamps and sequential turn signals are optional, along with the sport pack and S Line farkles. Quattro is still a $2,100 option
Biggest change coming into 2016 however has to be the addition of new paints to the palette. Audi has added a new red, 2 blues and another silver.
