Audi has detailed a range of specification changes to the Q3 small SUV for the 2024 model year, with pricing up as a result.

    Every single Audi Q3 and Q3 Sportback variant receives a price rise of up to $4411, depending on the variant. The range now starts at $53,400 before on-roads for the Q3 35 TFSI, and extends to $106,050 before on-roads for the RSQ3 Sportback edition 10 years.

    As previously detailed, the entire Q3 range now comes standard with adaptive cruise control with stop and go, as well as active lane assist. There are also two new exterior paint colours, though Audi hasn’t disclosed what these are yet.

    Audi has delivered a total of 3831 Q3 models to the end of October in 2023, making it the second best-selling premium small SUV on sale in Australia. It was outsold by the Volvo XC40 (4892 sales).
