Audi will launch the locally assembled Q3 on the 19th of August. The Q3 Sport will have lesser luxurious bells and whistles on offer and it will be a locally assembled product.
The Q3 comes with an option of 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engine options and the Sport will be offered with a diesel mill. The Q3 is one of the best selling vehicles for Audi and the Ingolstadt-based manufacturer will focus on SUVs than new entry-level hatchbacks. We can also expect a front-wheel drive 140bhp version of the Q3 possibly next year. This will come mated to a six-speed transmission.
We are doubtful if the front-wheel drive Audi Q3 will be coming anytime soon. But the company has already started working on its plan to get the A3 to India. The A3 e-tron was showcased at the 2012 Auto Expo. The A3 could be expected to come by the end of this year or something early next year. The S3 will also make an entry into the Indian car market, at some point in the future.
