The red RS Q3 with S line competition lookEven though red is not a new color for any Audi, the Misano Red RS Q3 is pretty gosh darn interesting to look at. That's because when they made this press car, Audi took inspiration from the way most RS3 and S3 buyers like to order their hatches, with back trim. And because all Q3 models now have a huge grille that connects to the headlights, the front end is dominated by black accents. Even the trim for the windows is black. Too bad you can't order black wheels yet.
The yellow Q3 2.0 TDI quattroFor 2015, Audi has added two fresh colors for Q3. One is Hainan Blue and is a very nice, light shade that doesn't stand out and the other is Mango Yellow, which we think is great for more effervescent people. For contrast, the car in the press photos is left without the S line body kit, which means satin black plastic and metallic scuff plates are present. This reminds us of the Beetle Dune Concept. Under the bonnet is the powertrain most European buyers wish they could afford: 2.0 TDI quattro, with lots of torque, relatively low fuel consumption and the security of all-wheel drive.
The dark blue Q3 featuring the S line kit is more refined and boasts a more dynamic powertrain that centers around the 2.0 TFSI turbo engine. Below, you may also notice the Q3's new Design Line on a Daytona Grey model and a few photos of an Ibis White car equipped with the TDI ultra powertrain, the most efficient one available.
