Audi's rival to the likes of the BMW X1 has a more arched roofline for the next generation, but due to the clever packaging, it is likely that the cargo area was increased. The rear bumper has a clean shape, and we could partially see the new taillights sitting on each side of the redesigned tailgate. Chances are the rear lighting units have a Y-shaped design, and we think they might be linked together via a slim light strip.
As a matter of fact, so does Kolesa, as their latest renderings preview the design of the new-gen Audi Q3. The digital illustrations appear to have been based on the actual scoops, hence the realistic approach. And with no camouflage wrapped around its body, it is clear that you won't mistake it for its predecessor. If anything, we think the new one looks better, as the modern styling certainly suits it for the most part, though if we had to choose, we wouldn't have gone for a split headlamp signature.
Chances are it might get a lesser plug-in hybrid assembly to act as the entry-level variant of the electrified lineup. You should also look for mild-hybrid units and the usual gasoline family. We have yet to learn whether the new Q3 will also be offered with diesel power, but we cannot rule it out either, especially since its platform-sharing sibling, the 2024 Tiguan, also comes with low-revving power on the right side of the pond.
Full details about it should be released sometime next year, as that is when Audi is expected to pull the wraps off the new Q3. Chances are it will be a 2025 model when it makes its way to the United States. And we certainly wouldn't criticize it if it ended up looking like the one imagined here. Would you?
