‘Gétver!’, many self-proclaimed car enthusiasts shouted in 2013 about the new Citroën C4 Picasso. One style element in particular suffered. But now you see them on many brands and models. Including the new Audi Q3.
Be honest, what did you think of it 10 years ago? Citroen C4 Picasso? Did you also like the characteristic, two-layer headlights? Well, you weren’t the only one who found them disgusting. But as is often the case, something that is unusual or unfamiliar at first later becomes accepted or even mainstream.

This also applies to the crazy headlights of the C4 Picasso, which after a number of years adorned almost all Citroëns. And as time went on, you came across them in more and more brands. From the new BMW 7-series and XM, to the Hyundai Bayon and the Skoda Kamiq.
In a few years it will be the turn of the Audi Q6 E-tron and the new Audi Q3 that our spy photographer recently caught. The Q3 is still dressed in a camouflage suit, but we bet that there is still a set of lamp units hidden under those nasty LED strips at the top of the front.
Brother of the new Volkswagen Tiguan
But enough about those headlights. What else do we know about the new Audi Q3? This includes the fact that it is on the same platform as the new Volkswagen Tiguan that will be presented soon. And considering that the even numbers within the Audi range are reserved for fully electric models, the Q3 is expected to be one of the last new Audi models with a combustion engine. With or without plug-in hybrid assistance. There will also probably be a fully electric version.
When will the new Audi Q3 arrive?
The new Audi Q3 is expected to make its official debut in 2025. This means that the current generation will be repaid after 7 years. We expect to reveal more ins and outs about the new SUV well before then. At the moment we would be willing to bet that there will also be a Q3 Sportback, because we fear that SUV coupes will still be in 2025.
