Audi Q3 by ABT Sportsline

German carmaker Audi received a tuning package for its Q3 model from ABT Sportsline tuners. This model is actually the smallest crossover model the range. So far, the aftermarket specialist had released different information on the QS3 package, but this are the first real life photos with the new, improved Audi Q3. It was important for the tuning engineers to offer the compact crossover a more aggressive look for the exterior and this is why they provided a body kit. This includes new side skirts, roof spoiler rear bumper with a diffuser, new quad exhaust tips and also a restyled front grille and lip. All the output is now being transferred to the road through 18- to 21-inches alloy wheels.


The ride height was lowered thanks to an available sports suspension kit. This last feature actually completes the new look. In terms of performance, ABT Sportsline provided a few kits for both the petrol and diesel engines for all Q3 lineups. The ones interested should know the 2.0-liter TDI diesel will have a power boost from 138 horsepower to 168 horsepower and in the same time, its brother, the 2.0-liter TDI will be capable of developing 202 horsepower from 174 horsepower. On the petrol side, there is the 2.0-liter TFSI petrol with a power increase from 168 horsepower to 236 horsepower and the 2.0-liter TFSI which is now able to produce 267 horsepower up from 208 horsepower.


The German carmaker Audi made all parts available for order now. The new modified Audi Q3 will make a lot of sensation among fans and enthusiasts, for sure.
