Since 2018, the second generation of Audi’s entry-level crossover has been available in North America. We haven’t noticed any significant changes so far. This is why many believe the 2024 Audi Q3 will get a facelift. According to some reports, the Ingolstadt compact is preparing a major update that would keep the current generation competitive for many more years until it’s replaced by an all-electric successor.
Details about the update are not yet available. Although the company is keeping the most details secret, we can assume that the main focus will be on aesthetics. The next model could have new styling and some mechanical tweaks. We don’t think the interior will be subject to any major changes as it is already beautiful. The 2024 Audi Q3 may arrive sooner than expected, but still within 2023’s second half if there are any updates.
2024 Audi Q3 Design
The 2024 Audi Q3 could be getting a mid-cycle refresh, as we have just mentioned. Most updates will be focused on styling. We are fairly certain that the facelift won’t be anything revolutionary, given that Audi is a conservative carmaker when referring to aesthetics. We would see some tweaks to the front in areas such as headlights and grille. We could also see some tweaks to the rear end. However, things like new wheels or color options seem certain.
However, we do not believe this update will bring about any major mechanical changes. The model will continue to use the same suspension and chassis setup as last year, riding on the main MQB platform that supports models such as Tiguan or VW Jetta.
However, we aren’t convinced that the 2024 Audi Q3 will bring more changes to the interior. The interior is already stunning. The interior is a classic design, but it’s also well-built with nice materials. The cabin looks even more luxurious thanks to a variety of standard and optional tech features.
This cabin is not only high quality but also has a good amount of space for passengers. The large and supportive front seats offer a high-level of comfort. The second row is decently sized and can slide or recline. This is a great feature, but it’s only suitable for two people. Due to the enormous center tunnel, it is impossible to fit three adults in the second row. The class has a decent cargo area. The cargo area is decent for the class, with 23.7 cubic feet behind the second row and 48 cubes of total cargo volume. It’s also important to know that the power liftgate comes as standard equipment.
This update will bring new features to standard and optional equipment. Although the current model has a lot of standard features, we expect to see more. It includes things such as a panoramic sunroof and tri-zone climate control. There are also four USB ports and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
There are many options available for the current model, and some could be standard features in the coming year. There are many highlights, including a touch screen of 10.1 inches, a digital gauge cluster measuring 12.3 inches, Amazon Alexa Auto,, and navigation.
This aspect is not expected to change. The 2024 Audi Q3 will continue to have two of the same powertrain options. The base model has a 2.0-liter turbo-four that produces around 184 horsepower. This is enough power for everyday commutes. You can also get a 228-horsepower variant of the same engine, which is significantly more powerful and suitable for open-road driving. The base engine can get fuel economy of around 23 mpg in cities and 30 mpg highways. The more powerful version can get about 21 mpg city-wide and 28 on highway.
Production station similar to Audi Q3
Cupra will offer a wide range of plug-in options, models,, and options by 2024. Cupra Terramar is a new sports SUV measuring 4.5 meters in height. It pays homage to the Seat Terramar track near Sitges. It will be made at the Audi factory, in Gyor, Hungary. This vehicle is expected to be in close contact with the Q3.
The Cupra Terramar will come with both a traditional engine and a new-generation hybrid plug-in option. These hybrids will be able to travel around 100 miles on an all-electric basis. The Cupra Tavascan, first presented as a concept in 2019, will be released in 2024. The production version of the Cupra Tavascan Extreme E 2021 will look similar to the concept. The Tarascan will help Cupra expand its international presence and open new markets for the brand.
Cupra will launch the Urban Rebellion electric car, which will be available under the Born subbrand by 2025. It will use the “Small MEB”, a platform from the Volkswagen Group. This platform can also be used to build entry-level electric vehicles from Skoda and VW.
Our company’s next major project, the Cupra Urban Rebel, will be significant as it will help us transition to a full-fledged electric vehicle manufacturer. This key product line will encourage sustainable urban mobility and is being developed by us. “We have worked previously on similar projects within the Volkswagen Group,” stated Werner Tietz, member of Cupra’s Research and Development Board.
Cupra UrbanRebel measures 4.03 meters long and is powered by an electric motor that produces 226 horsepower (166kW). In just 6.9 seconds, it can go from 0 to 100 km/h. According to the range version, it can travel up to 440km. Cupra also showed updates to its current lineup (the Cupra Leon and Cupra Formentor), which will be released in 2025. The future of Seat remains uncertain. It will be fascinating to see how Cupra expands its product ranges and the impact this has on the Seat brand.
2024 Audi Q3 Price and Release Date
The 2024 Audi Q3 may arrive in 2023 a bit sooner than usual, but it will still be available within the second half of 2023. The current model is priced at 38.000 dollars, so the price should not change. Models like the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA, and Volvo XC40 are key competitors.
