    It was in early 2017 that Audi first confirmed the addition of a Q4 to its lineup, though there have been some changes to the automaker's plans since then.

    Development of a next-generation Audi Q3 is well underway as our latest spy shots confirm. The new compact crossover SUV is expected on sale in 2019 as a 2020 model, and so far it doesn’t appear Audi will be pulling any surprises regarding the design. The vehicle should resemble a scaled-down version of the latest Q5, albeit with a more dynamically proportioned body. A current-generation Q3 is seen in some of the shots, highlighting the differences with the new model. The platform residing underneath the body is the familiar MQB design used by the Volkswagen Group for all compact cars...

  • Hot Volkswagen Tiguan R at the Nürburgring
    Hot Volkswagen Tiguan is likely an Audi RS Q3 test mule

    Over the past week, a Volkswagen Tiguan has been seen hurtling around the Nürburgring.

This has led to speculation that the vehicle might be a prototype...

    Audi RS Q3 gets pumped-up performance variant

    It’s bad enough that Audi doesn’t offer its RS Q3 in the United States. Now, to add insult to injury, the automaker is launching an even more potent variant that dons the “Performance” labeling. Joining the RS 6 and RS 7 Performance models unveiled last year is the new RS Q3...

  • 2014 Audi RS Q3

    The idea of a hot crossover has yet to really take off, but that isn't stopping Audi from trying to blaze the trail with the 2014 RS Q3. While we wait in suspense to hear if Audi will finally bring the Q3 to the U.S., we doubt the RS Q3 will follow. Too bad for us, as this blend of tall hot hatch and compact crossover is intriguing, at least in the photos from Audi's recent Land of quattro Alpen Tour 2013. In a range of colors, from red to Imola Yellow to Daytona Grey Matt (yes, Audi insists on dropping the "e" from matte), it looks interesting enough to want to test it. Although the physics...
