RS Q3 may deliver 400 horsepower.
Thenext generation of Audi's small crossover, the Q3, will launch in 2018. Largelybased on the next Volkswagen Tiguan and sharing several of its engines, thenext 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 shouldfeature Audi's newly-developed 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, which wasdeveloped 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 400horsepower, a significant increase over the current model. At the lower end ofthe spectrum, the Q3 Ultra will offer 100 hp from a three-cylinder, 1.0-literengine.
