2023 Audi Q3: Release Date and Pricing
If you search about the 2023 Audi Q3, you may have found various sources mentioning the specifications of the Audi Q3. However, many of these resources do not mention the release date of the car.
The release date of the upcoming Audi Q3 is yet to be released. However, sources mentioned that the carmaker is predicted to get the car out from the factory in late 2022, if not early 2023.
Similar to the release date which has not been revealed to the public, the price of this car is not yet announced as well. Interestingly, sources out there also mentioned that the car is predicted to be priced around $36,000-$42,000 which depends on the trim itself. The better the trim, the higher the price.
How many trims are available for this lineup in the upcoming release? It is pretty tricky to find out what levels are offered by the carmaker for this small SUV. However, so far, sources are mentioning that there will be Q3 40 TFSI Quattro and Q3 45 TFSI Quattro. A Premium version is available, although not many sources talked about this.
The Audi Q3 Looks
Sources mentioned that the car is looking so sporty and modern, just like a typical Audi car. However, it is unfortunate that we can only see minimum improvement on the car’s exterior. These improvements will only be visible on the car’s LED headlights, which are currently standard in all Audi cars, and its wheels.
How the Audi Q3 wheels will look depends on which trim you are using. The 2023 Audi Q3 40 will use both an 18-inch design as well as a 19-inch wheel design with a Black Optic package. While for the Q3 45, the wheel design used will be the 20-inch wheels, also with the Black Optic Sport package.
Inside, sources mentioned that the car has one major drawback: it uses too much plastic as the material. However, the cargo space offered is the plus side of this car. Compared to competitors like the 2022 Volvo XC40 and 2022 BMW X1, its legroom for the front side and the rear side, as well as the cargo space when the seats are up/down, are bigger. Hence, compared to those competitors mentioned, sitting in this car will be much more comfortable.
In addition, the car offers a 10.3-inch gauge display as well as one 8.8-inch infotainment touchscreen. As a complementary feature, the car’s infotainment system also provides Apple CarPlay as well as Android Auto. To provide you with the best driving experience while listening to music, a 10-speaker audio system is provided.
What’s best about this car’s interior feature is the wireless charging pad, which is a standard feature in Audi cars starting in 2023.
As for the Premium Audi Q3 features, you will get a better size of infotainment touchscreen. In this trim, the infotainment system is integrated with Amazon Alexa, and premium Sonos speakers are coming as part of its features.
The Car’s Engine Aspect
Despite the amazingly designed interior, the 2023 Audi Q3 is deemed to be lacking in its engine. Not only does it not provide a hybrid version and EV, but the fuel-powered engine also is not that interesting to look at.
As sources mentioned, the car is using a turbocharged 2.0-L, 4-cyl engine. There are two tunes as mentioned: the 40 and 45 TFSI. For each, the maximum power production will be different.
Audi Q3 40 TFSI will be able to produce at a maximum of 184 HP, while for the 45 TFSI tune, you will get its 228 HP maximum power production. This brings along a 7.8-second to reach 60 mph.
Another drawback comes from its fuel economy. Although understandably, an AWD vehicle will drain more fuel, the 2023 Audi Q3 fuel economy is said to fall behind the fuel economy of the current release.
