German tuner ABT Sportsline is bringing a host of new programs to the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, one of which is the QS3 program based on the Audi Q3.

Drawing on their expertise in building fantastic programs for Audis, ABT Sportsline took the Q3 and added a host of aesthetic and performance modifications on the crossover. On the outside, the QS3 program comes with a new body kit that consists of a completely redesigned front bumper fascia, front grill, door strip attachments, rear spoiler and a new rear bumper fascia. ABT also dressed up the Q3 with a full body graphics package that’s similar to what they did to the other vehicles they’re bringing to Geneva.

As far as performance improvements are concerned, the QS3 program comes with significant power increases for a number of the engine options available to the Q3. For starters, the 2.0 TDi version gets 205 horsepower, an increase from the 177-horsepower output of the standard model. Meanwhile, the 2.0 TFSI model scores an impressive 270 horsepower, up from the standard model’s 211-horsepower output.

The Audi QS3 will be joined by other ABT-tuned vehicles in Geneva, particularly the Audi AS6 Avant, the Volkswagen Beetle, and the Volkswagen Up!.
