FRANKFURT -- Audi has made the Q3 bigger and added more tech and connectivity equipment as part of second-generation engineering changes to tiny crossover.
The new Q3 switches to parent Volkswagen Group's flexible MQB architecture from an older platform.
The Q3 is Audi's third best-selling model globally after the Q5 SUV and A4 sedan, accounting for just over a tenth of the automaker's overall volume. Last year, Q3 sales fell 11 percent to 207,774 units.
The crossover has grown by 97 mm (3.8 inches) to separate it further from the smaller Q2. Its wheelbase has been stretched by 78 mm (3.1 inches), expanding knee room, headroom and elbow room. The vehicle is also slightly wider and minimally flatter than the first-generation.
