As of now, Audi Q3 is sold only in 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine in India; the Audi Q3 S and the 2.0 litre TFSI petrol version have been discontinued here in India.
The Audi Q3 facelift would be offered in both the 2.0 litre diesel and the 2.0 litre petrol engines. They are mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and would be equipped with the Quattro AWD system.
The engines of Audi Q3 are tweaked to be a bit more powerful, and Audi also claims that they are tuned for improved fuel efficiency. The Geman carmaker might as well bring back the budget Q3 S which comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox and front-wheel drive setup.
