Production[edit]

On 2011-06-07, Audi announced the production of Audi Q3 began at SEAT factory in Martorell, located in Spain’s Catalonia region, with annual production of approximately 100,000 Q3 units.[30][31][32] In 1998, the production facility was chosen as the "Best Factory of the VW Group in the first quarter".[33] Production at Martorell began on 2011-07-13 with Spanish Prince Felipe's inauguration at Martorell plant.[34]

The Audi Q3 is built in a FAW-Volkswagen plant in Changchun, China in a joint venture with its partner FAW;[35] production began in 2013.[36] The Changchun-made Audi Q3 first entered the market in April 2013.[37]

Marketing[edit]

As part of Audi A3 launch in China, Audi Q3 Trans China Tour 2011 began in 2011-10-15, featuring roughly 160 participants driving Audi Q3 2.0 TFSI quattro S tronic (211PS) in a 16-stage 5,700 kilometers (3,542 miles) route starting from Beijing to Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guilin, and ending in Hong Kong.[35][38][39] The tour ended with 20 cars arriving at the final destination in Shenzhen near Hong Kong.[40][41]

2014 update[edit]

Interior (facelift)

In 2014 the Audi Q3 received a minor facelift for the 2015 model year. The grille on the 2015 version has a wider chrome surround to it, which touches the headlights at each side. The lower air vents have been enlarged slightly, and the lights themselves have re-profiled LEDs to give the car a more recognisable look in the dark. The wheel arch surrounds and door sills are body coloured on the base model (they used to be black plastic), as is the rear bumper design, which sits below subtly reshaped lower tail light clusters. Also there are new alloy wheel designs to finish off the refresh.

The changes to the inside are even more difficult to spot than those on the outside. Styling-wise, the only thing of note is a new steering wheel design. There is now the option to specify blind spot and lane departure warning systems if you wish. The boot remains the same volume at 420 litres, expanding to 1,325 litres when the rear seats are folded flat.

Across the range, each engine has seen an improvement in performance, efficiency or both. The 1.4-litre turbo petrol now features cylinder-on-demand technology, which saves fuel by shutting down a couple of cylinders when less power is needed.

The 2.0 TFSI petrol units now produce 180 PS and 220 PS. The two diesel motors receive boosts of eight and four horsepower, to 150 PS and 184 PS respectively. The more performance-oriented RS Q3 gains a sizeable 30 PS over the old model, and torque now sits at 332 lb ft, marginally up from the old version.[44]

The vehicle was unveiled in 2014 North American International Auto Show.

US models went on sale in Fall 2014 as 2015 model year vehicles. Early models included 2.0 TFSI (200PS), 2.0 TFSI quattro (200PS).[45]
