The much anticipated Audi Q3 is likely to be unveiled at Frankfurt Motor Show. Well, no further details are available in this regard. The vehicle is expected to feature two engine options namely a 2.0-liter TFSI with 170 PS (125 kW / 168 hp) and 211 PS (155 kW / 208 hp) as well as a 2.0-liter with 170 PS (125 kW / 168 hp). Both will be mated to the usual transmission choices and C02 emissions are likely to range from 158 g/km to 184 g/km.

This crossover auto is expected to feature sporty styling inspired by the Cross Coupe quattro concept that debuted at the 2007 Shanghai Motor Show. The vehicle is designed to compete with the BMW X1 and Mercedes BLK / GLC.

Audi Q3 will go on sale in late September or early October in Germany, probably after its Frankfurt debut.

Posted by Alex Ion in Audi Q3, Automotive News, BMW X1, Mercedes BLK / GLC, Volvo XC30, XC60 on 01 5th, 2011

In a bid to take on competition posed by BMW X1, Audi Q3, and Mercedes BLK / GLC, Volvo is all geared up and is in the process of developing an XC30. Expected to be a cross over vehicle, the Volvo XC30 will have size specs less than the earlier XC60. The measurements read 4350mm in length, which is 280mm shorter than the XC60.

Expected to be driven to markets in China and the United States, the XC3o will boast of a traditional Volvo styling and will resemble the XC60. The difference could well be the dynamism that has been thrown in and the different interior would add to the charm.

It is being said that the car will roll out of Volvo stables by late 2013.
