The preferred SUV will get enlarged proportions and far better tech inside of of the cabin, though we also assume some intriguing options beneath the hood. So in which to get started?
Properly, the most noteworthy variations have took place from the exterior. The compact crossover certainly hosts some rather familiar aspects, but nothing in prevalent with its predecessor. Alternatively, the 2019 Audi Q3 attributes a Q8-inspired style and design that would make it rather aggressive. Up front, the vehicle hosts the equivalent grille as the new flagship SUV. The fascinating deal with is in addition spiced up with the sporty bumper and with a pair of LED-treated headlights. The new profile of the SUV surely appears to be a lot more intense than earlier thanks to the reduced and longer profile. We would not alter the attention-grabbing alloy wheels at all, but probable customers of the redesigned Q3 are heading to be able to do that since the automaker prepares many styles and dimensions. Additional specifically, the common wheels will be 17- and 18-inch, even though a set of 20-inch Audi Activity will come as a far more high priced choice.
Volkswagen Group’s MQB architecture supports the 2019 Q3. The platform is highly flexible, so it’s not any marvel at all that the carmaker employs the similar chassis for a really big number of designs. By utilizing it, the new-gen Q3 receives 3.8 inches excess of duration and an inch in width. The general car is lowered .2 inches, though the new wheelbase receives 3 extra inches. With the enlarged footprint, the compact crossover is not heading to keep as compact as it was. For case in point, with rear seats folded down, SUV’s new storage space is 53.9 cubic feet. Pretty spectacular, is not it?
The new inside hosts an impressive dashboard structure devoid of any doubt. There is a wholly electronic instrument cluster and really beautiful air vents at the major, though the rear conclusion hosts a big infotainment show that has been paired with Apple Car or truck Perform and Android Auto smartphone integration. A Wi-Fi hotspot and four USB ports are regular as it is a variety of digital driving aids.

This Pulse-Orange painted Q3 has been introduced with a turbocharged 2.-liter 4-cylinder engine. The mill develops exactly 226 horsepower and 258 pound-toes of torque which vacation to Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-travel procedure by a seven-speed twin-clutch gearbox. The AWD can be improved with a hill descent characteristic. The U.S.-specs design, for occasion, will swap to an 8-pace computerized transmission, though the European clients are capable to decide on a 6-speed manual gearbox,as well.
The German automaker is heading to offer you two much more gasoline engines, as perfectly as an oil-burner abroad. Additionally, an e-tron plug-in hybrid possibility is mostly anticipated someday later. Still, Audi didn’t want to expose everything about this issue at the 2018 Paris Motor Clearly show, so remain tuned for updates.
