Audi Q3 could debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show

Audi A3

There is the Audi Q7, the Audi Q5 and now we are awaiting the arrival of the Audi Q3. The smallest Q SUV of them all, the Audi Q3 will compete with the likes of the BMW X1 and the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLC (or BLK or whatever they will call it).

Reports suggest that the new Audi Q3 will share the underpinnings with the Volkswagen Tiguan and will get most of its styling inspiration from the Cross Coupe quattro concept, which made its debut at the 2007 Shanghai Motor Show.

The model will carry a range of 4-cylinder turbo engines including a 168-hp 2.0L TFSI, a 208-hp 4-cylinder TFSI and a 2.0L TDI making 168-hp.

If all goes as planned for Audi, the Q3 will debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The Audi Q3 will go into production later this year in Spain with a capacity of up to 80,000 units annually.
