2019 Audi Q3 Rumors Changes, Specs and Features
Life has it’s up and down. You can be so popular tonight, and in the next day, someone is more popular than you. Well, that also happens to the automotive industry, especially for the Audi Q3. For some time, the car was the leader in its segment, and now it is getting down. One by one left it as their favorite choice when they see the better Lexus NX, Infiniti QX30, and GLA. 2019 Audi Q3 is an important solution to take back the popularity, reputation as well. It is rumored to come with all-new version after the company never touched it since 2011.
The price of the new Audi Q3 2019 is quite similar to the A4, even higher and the car has a different platform to use. It will use the MQB modular platform with front-wheel drive design presented by Volkswagen. It offers front engine with both front and all-wheel drive setup. The design is still a big mystery, but the car has been spotted with heavy camouflage. Some sources said that it has more interesting look than the predecessor. We glad to hear that there will be no boxy look to keep. It has wider, longer and lower look compared to the previous model. The roof is also swept back with small roof spoiler that makes it a little bit close to the Macan when it is all about the profile, combined with the details from the A4 or the Q7. The front end should be more aggressive with the flared wheel arches.
By using this platform, the car has more spacious cabin design compared that the A4. The current model goes with the combination of A3 and A4 with the fewer buttons inside. The new platform and the new size offer a beautiful cabin design that will remind you to the A4. 2019 Q3 hopefully will get an identical dashboard with less buttons and the same quality of materials. Some optional features may be added such as head-up-display and digital panel.
2019 Audi Q3 Engine
The most interesting part is that the company seems will not use the new 3-cylinder turbocharged engine from Volkswagen. It looks like the base model will go with 1.4-liter turbo in the European market. For the American version, they will use the current 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four as the standard which can make 250 hp and 250 torque power with the help of some revisions. Only European and few markets will get a diesel engine. Probably, the American version of new Audi Q3 will go with 1.4-liter hybrid to make 200 hp.
The price for the base model of 2019 Audi Q3 can be about $33,700, and the higher model has $38,600. It is the strong rivals for BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class and other cars in its segment.
