2017 Q3 still comes with the Gen-1 EA888 2.0T engine.....that is not a bad thing. It would be nice if they gave it the new 8 speed automatic that the new MBQ Tiguan got.
Concerning the Small Overlap crash test results of the PQ35 based Q3, it is much better than Tiguan, or any other PQ35 based chassis, as Audi made some significant structural changes when the Q3 model was developed in 2011. Surprisingly, these changes were not shared with the Tiguan chassis, its most similar PQ35 sibling.
