One thing is for sure. Your car will say 35tdi on the back instead of 2.0tdi. I'm not aware of any other changes. Its possible the premium now comes with xenons and LED drls, instead of halogens going by what you were told.

Refreshed version is priced at 38.40 Lakhs ex-showroom Mumbai and comes with a host of new features like :-

1. Audi Drive Select
2. New Alloy 17" Alloy design
3. Front and Rear Chrome bumper claddings
4. Clear lens tail lamps
5. Different rear hood
6. Chrome tipped exhaust pipes
You are talking about the top of the line called the Dynamic or something which was recently launched.

Agreed. It does come with Xenons and LED DRLs (white) as well as new badging of 35TDI. Moreover, he told me that it comes in Monsoon grey colour, which is only recently released and available only in my2015 model. I had to bargain hard for that deal though.

Finally got my Q3. And yes, the badging is indeed 35TDi apart from some changes like new grille and white DRLs with Xenons in Premium version as well. Would love to share the pics after I get the privileges to do so.

That grille! Hmm, someone finally took a cue from BMW 3-series' grille whose chrome bezel extends upto the headlamp! Exteriors look neat but the interiors don't look that 'exciting'.

Well, I just test drove both, X1 and Q3 together and compared them side by side. I found that interiors are much refined in Q3 and it gives much more airy feel than the bimmer. Nothing extraordinary, but simple and yet classy.

The new tail lamps look good. Not the clear ones though which are found in the dynamic version. I personally don't like clear lens.

I wish we got the same alloys as in the pic above though. 😄

Saw the promo videos of the facelift. But didn't see the fog lamps. Have they removed it completely.

The above pic is of the latest facelift that has been revealed couple of days back. Its going to be on sale from early next year. The audi India website shows the existing model. By the way congratulations for your new Q3.

Thanks a lot. Oh yeah, I did check on that bit later on. It's indeed the global facelift that would probably come out early next year. I believe there are some minor exterior modifications along with a bump from existing 177 Bhp to 184. We might probably see it in India towards later half of next year.

Yes. And I am thinking where did the fog lamps go in the facelift.

Attended the Q drive Gurgaon today. What an experience. My first time doing serious off-roading and it just blew me away. Any of T-BHPians attended?

Is the ground clearance sufficient for its off-roading capability? Also how well can the off-road package that the car comes equipped with handle the under belly scrapes? Please post some pics of your Q3 in its off-road avatar if you don't mind.
