2015 Audi Q3 facelift breaks cover

The 2015 Audi Q3 facelift has made its online debut, thus confirming a rumor from a month ago which referred to an unveiling in either November or December. As seen in the attached official images, the cosmetic revisions are not very significant but this shouldn’t come as a surprise for a facelift from Audi as the Ingolstadt-based automaker rarely makes any significant styling tweaks.

The biggest change is in the front fascia where the trapezoidal single-frame grille has been given a makeover which makes the crossover look sharper and fresh at the same time. The revised headlights benefit from xenon plus lighting with LED daytime running lights but for more money you can upgrade to full LED headlights which come with dynamic turn signals just like the LED taillights.

Moving onto the engine lineup, the 2015 Audi Q3 facelift is available with three TFSI turbocharged gasoline units as well as three TDI motors which all meet Euro 6 emissions regulations and have up to 17% fewer CO2 emissions than before. The more frugal engines have a displacement ranging from a 1.4-liter to a 2.0-liter, with output varying between 120 HP (88 kW) and 220 HP (162 kW).
