2019 Audi Q3 Redesign, USA Release Date
Audi was the leader in its class with their Q3. Their popularity decreased after losing customers since other companies are able to offer a complete redesign such as the X1, the GLA, the Lexus NX, and the Infiniti QX30. Audi left the Q3 untouched since 2011. Their main issue was the engine. The company did not refine the engine so that it was less powerful than the rivals. Rumors explain that the new generation would be available in 2017. The fact was different. Audi presented their updated 2017 model, which showed the world that it was not a new model. Most likely, Audi is going to offer the all-new version as the new 2019 Audi Q3.
Although the price of the new Q3 is similar to the A4, or even higher, Audi will use a different platform for the new 2019 Audi Q3. Audi will go with the MQB modular architecture to support its front or all-wheel drive system. On the contrary, Audi does not offer the platform from the A4 that goes with a longitudinally mounted engine to offer more engine options. Meanwhile, the MQB platform offer more spacious cabin design than the MLB.
We understand that all things about the exterior design of the car is still hard to know. Some sources report about the car with heavy camouflage. The report explained that it is more interesting than before. It will not use a boxy design but it is longer, wider, and lower than ever. The car has a small roof spoiler. Some parts of the car may remind you to the Macan. Other parts are similar to the newest Q7 or the A4. We hope the company offers it with a more aggressive front end to complete the flared wheel arches.
We can say that the cabin of the 2019 Audi Q3 tells you the combination of the A4 and the A3. It has less buttons for its clean look. The new platform makes it similar as the A4 with the identical dashboard, less buttons, yet the same premium materials. It seems that the company will offer the digital dashboard and the head-up-display.
2019 Audi Q3 Engine
It is possible for the company not to offer the new three-cylinder turbocharged engines from VW. They are going to use a 1.4-liter turbo for the base model of 2019 Audi Q3 on the European market. For American buyers, Audi will provide a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four as the standard engine. They also revise the current A4 engine as the alternative to make 250 HP and much torque power. Audi will only offer diesel for Europe and some selected markets. The US market likely gets a 1.4-litrr hybrid to make 200 HP. As of the transmission, likely Audi will offer a revised six-speed dual clutch unit for the US market.
Based on some reliable sources, Audi is possible to display the 2019 Audi Q3 in the beginning of 2018 so it can go on the market soon. The price is still unknown, but it can be more expensive than the previous model due to the new Q2.
