There are plenty of Audi Q3 spy shots out there but this will be the first time the Audi SQ3 was spotted getting tested out in the open.

The thing that gave it away was the revised grille as well as the sportier air intakes. The vehicle was also fitted with a set of five-spoke alloy wheels and four-tailpipe sports exhaust system which makes it clear that this is not your average Audi Q3 model.

We are expecting the Audi SQ3 to get a similar interior upgrade as the one we saw on the Audi Q3. That means new steering, digital instrument cluster, and upgraded infotainment system.

The engine will most likely be the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that will be offering about 306hp and 380Nm. The engine could be mated to the seven-speed S Tronic transmission.

Production should begin after the Audi Q3 starts later this year.
