    ~300 horsepower 2.5 liter turbo 5 cylinder Audi Q3 on the way (SQ3?), likely to arrive to in 2012

    Auto Motor Und Sport is reporting that recently in Zurich Audi CEO Rupert Stadler let it slip that a Q3 with the TT-RS 2.5 liter 6 cylinder turbo motor is coming. This will be a sport version of the Q3 which likely means the S badge. 'SQ3' may be the name but we need to see what precedent Audi sets for naming their performance SUV's when the higher performance versions of the Q5 arrive. We just hope this vehicle makes it to the USA as an SUV with the low curb weight of the Q3 and the power potential of a TT-RS will be a nice little platform

    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Hey, give it a chance. Lightweight, turbo, what's not to love? Would you prefer more "Efficiently Dynamic" 5300 pound SUV's that need twin turbo V8's to move?

    I bet one of these with a tune would run circles around an X6 M.

    add a few cylinders to it and it will be fine.
    5 isn't enough for a performance SUV.

    Why not? It doesn't weigh 5300 pounds.

    GMC made one of the most kickass SUV's the world had ever seen with a turbo 6 cylinder.

    Q3 is going to be small. Something like mid-3,000 lbs.

    Not less than.

    Autoblog said the lightest version of the Q3 will weigh in at 3,300 lbs.

    Exactly, no need for a larger motor.

    The Q5 is already small. This Q3 will be smaller than the first gen X3, which is needless to say, USELESS.

    For US standards this car is tiny. On the European market however it will blend in nicely with the Renault Scenics and lookalikes of this world

    I had a first gen X3. Slightly smaller wouldn't really bother me all that much. I could do anything I needed to in the X3.
