Audi Q3 detailed in new presentation video for UK market

The Audi Q3 is the star of a new promotional clip released by the company’s UK division which describes the “compact premium SUV” as being “big on practicality.” Featuring quattro all-wheel drive and a generous 460-liter trunk, the Q3 is one of the most interesting crossovers on the market today and was recently introduced on the U.S. market.

It is important to mention Audi is cooking up a facelift for its smallest SUV which will likely be introduced towards the end of the year or the beginning of 2015. The design changes will be evolutionary rather than revolutionary as Audi has developed a habit for implementing minor styling modifications for facelifted models.

It is believed the Audi Q3 facelift will adopt slightly different headlights with a reworked layout of the LED daytime running lights. Engines choices will likely carry over from the existing model, including the 5-cylinder, 2.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine from the range-topping RS Q3 which delivers 310 PS and a maximum torque of 420 Nm. It works together with a quattro AWD system and a 7-speed S tronic gearbox which allows the hot crossover to hit 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and a maximum speed of 250 km/h (electronically-limited).
