Three four-cylinder units will be offered at first: two TFSI units with power ranging from 140bhp to 211bhp, and a 2.0 TDI unit with 140bhp and front-wheel drive.

UK prices will start from around £25,000 for the base 2.0 TFSI front-wheel-drive model.

For more details about the all-new Audi Q3 see the press release after images and video.
