The 2019 Audi Q3 may well turn out to be the smallest crossover SUV to hit the market so far but given the fact that Audi is known for its small compact cars and for packing them to the rafters with the latest tech, we could hardly wait. Just so you know we did not but went scouting for more information and were just blown away by what we discovered. It seems that the new Audi may well reset the balance as far as the SUV market is concerned so let’s take a closer look at the same, shall we?
2019 Audi Q3 Overview
The 2019 Audi Q3 has already started the buzz and the rumour mill is bordering on the frantic but that’s what happens when you get a game changer and this car may well turn out to be one. If rumours are to be believed, it seems that the new Audi has transitioned from its older platform to a more modern MQB modular one.
That should whet your appetite for a bit, but moving on, it seems that the new Audi will indeed be a lot different from the ones that we have all been used to so far and it certainly looks the part, as far as we can make out from the leaked images.
Exterior, under the hood:
The 2019 Audi Q3 comes with dramatic styling that’s more reminiscent of its larger cousin and is certainly a departure from the norm for this model. It comes with an extra 4 inches in length as well as 3inches in the wheelbase and all of this translates to spacious interiors within reason along with slightly more leg room. Keep in mind that Audi’s are generally compact and this one is as well, except that it is slightly larger than its earlier model.
The new model features a brand new angular corporate grille with bold new front fascia along with LED headlights and with flared fenders which goes very well with the sleek headlights. Thanks to the new design and the bodywork on the sides, the new model sports on a more muscular look which it manages to carry off with aplomb and in style. There does not seem to be much work done to the rear but overall, the new design is certainly an improvement and one that makes this car stand out for all the right reasons.
The 2019 Audi Q3 comes with a re-worked interior with spacious interiors and more cargo space, thanks to the larger wheelbase and length. It also comes with heated seats, plush upholstery along with a 10.2-inch infotainment touch screen that stands out in the whole car given its compact size.
The dashboard also sports a thin silver hexagon which matches the grille in the front and comes with Android Auto and Apple car play compatibility. So with the new model, you can expect nothing less than premium comfort as far as the interior of the new model goes.
Engine, Release Date, and Price
The 2019 Audi Q3 comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine which performs wonderfully at 230-hp and is paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission. The car also features several safety features with all the latest features including adaptive cruising which enables this car to take on the big guys head on.
The model is expected to e launched around the end of 2018 and March 2019 for markets in India and others. It is expected that the pricing for the new model would be pegged around $33875.
