For a bit of time we've been waiting.

Tapping our foot and looking at our watches, it seems as though Audi has been taking its time making sure the Q3 makes it to our shores. With an assault of all-new product taking aim at the market — BMW X1, Lexus NX and Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class — Audi has to keep interest in the Q3 strong.

Making an appearance at the 2014 New York Auto Show was such a thing.

Sporting a silver paint job and a cocoa interior, it didn't look at though it would be one of the marque's cheaper offerings. In fact, I thought it was a Q5 at first. The painted fender flares help add to the confusion.

After seeing the more enthusiastically designed products in this new class — the GLA and NX come to mind — it seems as though the Q3 may not strike a chord with a market that wants to stand out from the crowd. If they didn't want to, the CLA-Class wouldn't have booming sales.

All things considered, that's just our take. What say YOU, Spies? Is the polished up Q3 looking like a WINNER or has the four rings styled it too conservative for its own good?
