  • The upcoming cars by Audi are the A3, e-Tron and Q3.
  • Audi will also come up with the facelifted A4, Q5, Q7 and S5 Sportback.

With the introduction of the stricter BS6 emission norms in India, Audi India discontinued almost two-third cars from its entire lineup to meet the emission requirement. The diesel engines were also discontinued due to the high cost incurred while updating them as per the new emission norms. The plan was to introduce a BS6 compliant petrol engine on the upcoming facelifted and new-gen Audi cars. Last year, the company has launched six models in total. However, the German carmaker was unable to complete the 2020 scheduled plan due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Coming to the future launches that Audi has planned for India are the facelifted A4, Q5, Q7 and S5 Sportback. Meanwhile, it will also come with the all-new A3, e-Tron and Q3.

Here are some quick updates on the engines that all these upcoming cars from Audi will get:
