With Auto Shanghai less than two weeks away, Audi has released the first teaser images of the Q3 crossover.

As expected, the model has a clear resemblance to the Q5 and Q7, but adopts a sportier front fascia and a rakish roofline which will likely limit rear passenger headroom and cargo capacity.

Moving on to the interior, the cabin appears to feature a pop-up MMI display, wood trim, and plenty of aluminum accents.

At launch, engine options are slated to include 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 TDI that cranks out 170 PS (125 kW / 168 hp). They will be mated to the usual transmission choices and CO2 emissions are expected to range from 158 g/km to 184 g/km.

The Audi Q3 will be officially unveiled on April 19th, so stay tuned for full details.
