This probably explains why the Q5 was off the menu as these were being readied. I expect we shall see these in showrooms by Diwali!

What would be the engine options in India for this?
Without the 180hp and 240bhp diesels this won't have the ammunition to come our all guns blazing against the XC60 (this car can murder with the looks alone ), GLE and the X3.
(Counting the Discovery Sport out as Land Rover fans can't seem to make do with anything else!)

Also would want to request the views of existing Tiguan owners on the Q3.

This car seems very businesslike and lacking a 'soul', ergo inadvertently eschewing the rather polarizing looks of either the BMW X3 or the GLE, both of which have established a connect with the 'moiety' and sell decently.

Definitely impressed me. I feel the the grill adds lot of character to the look. Also, find the car to be compact v/s its competitors.

Lastly the interiors does look plush, but I wish they would have done something more with the infotainment screen. Its kind of looks disconnected from the otherwise cozy looking interiors.

Looks like a nice overall facelift, the green is actually looking good. I hope the Q3 has a similar touches, especially to its interiors, whenever Audi chooses to unveil it. IMO the Q3 interiors were plain vanilla.

Love this green color! Even though I stick to my mainly monochromes- black,grey,whites always for my cars, I would get this green!

Its not very often that we see this trend coming with facelift,especially in India. But i recall maruti introducing a yellow shade on the Zen in the 90s and just that eye catching color created such a buzz! Even though it was not a facelift there was renewed interest in the Zen which had been around a few years already in more sober colors.

I hope Audi India brings this color to India, it will definitely appeal to their TG. There is apparently a new blue launched with this facelift, would love to see that if anyone has a pic
