Ahead of India launch, 2022 Audi Q3 teased: Check features
Audi has officially teased the 2022 Q3 in India prior to its launch this year. The SUV will likely replace the Q2 in the brand's portfolio. The four-wheeler is currently on sale in various global markets and is offered with refreshed exterior styling and a tech-forward cabin. The car will be available with a 2.0-liter turbo-petrol engine and Quattro all-wheel-drive system.
Why does this story matter?
The Q3 has been an entry-level mid-size SUV for Audi since its inception in 2011. The car is known for its dynamic handling, thanks to the legendary "Quattro" all-wheel-drive system. The German automaker had introduced the second generation of the four-wheeler based on the MQB A2 platform in 2018. The 2022 iteration features a refreshed design philosophy similar to its sibling, the Q5.
