Audi's Next Q3 to Arrive in 2018

RS Q3 may deliver 400 horsepower.

The next generation of Audi's small crossover, the Q3, will launch in 2018. Largely based on the next Volkswagen Tiguan and sharing several of its engines, the next Q3 is expected to be larger than the current generation, allowing it to be further set apart from the tiny Q1 model. Topping the Q3 line, the next RS Q3 should feature Audi's newly-developed 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, which was developed specifically to take on a similar engine featured in Mercedes' smaller AMG models.

If that is the case, the 2018 RS Q3 could deliver approximately 400 horsepower, a significant increase over the current model. At the lower end of the spectrum, the Q3 Ultra will offer 100 hp from a three-cylinder, 1.0-liter engine.
