2016 Audi Q3 Specs Review, Changes, Interior Colors

Car Junkie - 2016 Audi Q3 Specs. The new Q3 is actually not as new as you know, since the latest redesigned Q3 has been sold in the European market during recent years. The American-spec Q3 is managed to come in the states as 2016 model year Q3s. Debuting at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show a few months back, the tweaked Q3 appeared to differ from the old versions. New Xenon LED headlights beautifully replaces the current standards, also the tail lights which get a new attractive design. In addition to freshening skin substance, the Q3 will gain extra enjoyable equipment inside, too.

Simply congrats! It won the 2015 IIHS’ Top Safety Pick. We’ll in a very short time taste another family carrier, the 2016 Audi Q3 compact crossover is offering a number of noticeable improvements and refreshments. As we understand, the Audi Q3 is every new comer here in the North American market. It’s been available to pick with reasonable prices, ample engine power with 200 hp, elegant body design and innovative interior inlays as well as tech features inside. Begging $1200 for 2016 face-lift let’s see what’s more the Q3 crossover will stick up

From the front sight, the Q3 keeps taking care of its flossy face with a darkened horizontally decorated crome grille, shinning four rings sticked on the two lines above, “quattro” tab doesn’t move from the left side placement. Making something different, white colored surfaces connect the grille to the upside-down trapezoidal head lights, while a pair of in-orange decorative lamps take steps to end the front edges. To make clear, Audi wouldn’t yet include its full-LED headlamps to standards Q3s except that Xenon Plus – buyers can still gain LED turn sign lights which are integrated to the side mirrors – go see 2016 Allroad.

Moving backward, a couple of triangle designed LED tail lights are totally refreshed – you’ll only see one ornamental line instead of dual lines you’ve found on the current versions. After all, buyers won’t lose that plain spoiler, twin exhausts on the left bottom, elegant tailgate with a four-ring emblem still exists just above the back hatch handle.

Peeking out the window, we’ll see black-gray colors decorate the whole interior surfaces, inviting gauge cluster and well patterned dash. An MMI display serves up with its upgraded content through Audi connect. The 2016 Q3 has featured Audi select to fix your driving manners; dynamic, auto, comfort or efficiency mode. To standards, Audi provides a 10-speaker sound system with a CD player, while the fourteen-speaker BOSE sound system will be optional. For parking security, the 2016 Audi Q3 crossovers bring the available rear-vision camera into use, and a standard Audi side assist feature on the roads. Stopping your Q3 more easily with a 12.3-inch front brake and a 11.1-inch rear unit. Adopting a MacPherson strut technology for the front suspension, and a four-link unit for rear suspension. A useful sunroof can get rid of boredom sometimes, it allows you and passengers to see above if there is beautiful scenery.

The 2016 Audi Q3 maintains its concept clear to be a preferable family crossover with a compact styling. Aside from those refreshments, the company wouldn’t yet try another power supplier as the 2.0L TFSI returned, still engineered in 4 cylinders as well as a turbo-charged fuel injection system. Generating the same output of 200 horsepower & 207 lb-ft of torque. According to the EPA’s data, the Q3 earns 23 mpg combination ratings (29 mpg/hwy, 20 mpg/city), nothing changes here. A fairly slow 0-60 acceleration rated at 7 to 8 seconds. For a 3494-lb compact crossover, 130-mph figure of maximal speed is of course acceptable. In terms of pricing, the 2016 Q3 is still becoming one of the most affordable cars among the today’s Audi brand vehicles. It’s raised up to $1,200 for 2016 generations. Only Q3 Premium Plus as the base and Q3 Prestige are joining the 2016 American auto market.

The outstanding MQB platform seems to underpin the 2016 Audi Q3, it's been good at weight-saving treatment. Refined suspensions are hoped to work better on stability and upgrade handling capability even in the off-road terrain.

While the European Q3 is offering unlimited wheel and engine options, there has not yet official details in regard with engines for the 2016 U.S-Spec Audi Q3. In Europe, buyers can at least opt for 4 different powertrains. From the smallest 150-hp 1.4L TFSI, 180-hp/220-hp 2.0L TFSI, 120-hp/150-hp/184-hp 2.0L Turbodiesel, and 340-hp 2.5L engine. Sadly, there seems no chance for the 340-horsepower Q3 to hit the hot American market, so it will stay available in the Europe only.

We don't know yet which one will power the 2016 Q3 for Americans. It's somewhat logical to predict the 200-hp TFSI to be chosen, with both options of front- and 4-wheel drive units, a 6-speed automatic seems to return and hoping to try double clutch from now. Audi says that they have refined the Q3's loading space and mechanism easier to use in all seasons. We're wondering which one of the BMW X1 or the Q1 will run further in this competition. Expecting the 2016 Audi Q3 to start ranging from $33,000 to $37,000 for the base.
