Audi’s Q3 may be a smaller SUV, but that doesn’t mean it can afford to be any less capable – or deliver less technology. With sales exceeding over a million units of the old version, it’s a vital model in Audi’s line-up, not least because it’s in many cases responsible for giving drivers their first taste of the brand. That leaves a lot resting on the shoulders of the 2019 Q3.
So, the outside and interior are completely new, and there’ll be two engine and drivetrain options for the US. That includes a Q3 quattro with a 2.0-liter, 184 horsepower engine, and a Q3 quattro S Line with 228 horsepower. Both will get an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Inside, MMI and a digital instrument cluster are standard. USB-C ports have been included, and navigation and connected services will be offered as options. Expect it to arrive in US dealerships in 2019.
