The 2024 Audi Q3 will be updated since the current styling is already 5 years old. The German manufacturer wants to keep up with the competition – mainly BMW and Mercedes. Subcompact luxury crossovers are pretty expensive. The base price of the Q3 will be over $38,000, and for that amount of money, you can buy a three-row SUV. Still, there won’t be too many premium features Audi can offer.
The company will redesign the crossover and put new drivetrains under the hood. A hybrid system is likely, based on the E-Tron platform. Since the small Q3 is not so popular, Audi won’t offer high-end performance packages, such as SQ and RS. There will be new colors, trim levels, and the 2024 Audi Q3 is coming with up to date infotainment system.
2024 Audi Q3 All-New Look
The German carmaker is always delivering an eye-catching appearance, which was also the case with a small crossover. The styling is something that makes Audi vehicles stand out. While you can discuss about other things, the design is always modern and aesthetic. For the 2024 Audi Q3, we will see bold styling inspired by some of the latest launches. The company brought a few new SUVs in the past couple of seasons and the Q3 will be a shrunk version of its bigger siblings.
Spy photos of those vehicles can unveil what to expect. For example, photographers already caught Q2 and Q8. The new grille is hidden behind a heavy camo. Other parts are covered as well, so we don’t have too many details. The platform will be the same, which means the size won’t differ too much from the current edition.
Trims and Interior
The current Q3 is available in the Premium trim level, with additional options. The company could carry over this package, or rename it. Anyhow, it will be upgraded, while the technology is being updated. The S Line is one of the certain optional packages. It enhances style and comfort, while still being affordable. The Premium Plus is an advanced bundle, and you can also add S-Line options. Heavily loaded, the new 2024 Audi Q3 will cost $45,000. Still, the price also depends on the drivetrain options.
2024 Audi Q3 Specs, Hybrid
The crossover is not going to return crazy amount of power in the base form. The naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter mill produces 184 hp on the current version and it is significantly less than some other subcompact models from the luxury segment. Even the gas mileage is not effective – even after the redesign, the vehicle won’t be able to critically improve the current 26 mpg rating. The body should be lighter, which promises extra miles. More buyers opt for a turbo-four setup with 228 hp. The Q3 is faster and more fun to drive. Also, the mileage is not too much worse – 24 mpg combined.
The 2024 Audi Q3 Hybrid might also join the lineup. The German carmaker is going to use the E-Tron platform, like for some other bigger SUVs. This can improve both power outputs and gas mileage. However, Audi is not announcing this model for the US, while there is the Q3 TFSI e version in European salons. The system is good for 245 hp and covers 31 miles with electric power only.
2024 Audi Q3 Release Date
We are expecting the 2024 Audi Q3 eagerly. The company is not announcing release dates yet, which means the redesign is still not finished. So, fans will have to be patient and wait for official updates.
The price will go up, that is for sure. Currently, the Q3 costs $37,500. Heavily loaded, the price can ht $50,000. The main competitors are BMW X1 and Mercedes GLA. However, you can also check Lexus UX, Volvo XC40, or Cadillac XT4 subcompact crossovers with luxury equipment.
