26 Dec Introducing the 2019 Audi Q3
Set to join the 2019 lineup, the Audi Q3 is here with added perks for both infotainment and better driving. The latest Q3 model has a fully digital operation packed with the latest technologies, and of course, Audi’s signature ‘big mouth’ front grille.
Overall, the Audi Q3 gives the luxurious SUV experience but in a compact and sleek package. It has an innovative design which is a big envy in the world of compact SUVs. The Ingolstadt-based brand succeeded in making every inch of the Q3 a total wonder.
First off, its headlights have the new Matrix LED technology for better night driving and signaling even on a very tight bend. To add on the glamor of the exterior are the strong lines that imbibe a muscular and athletic appearance – perfect for the adventurous person behind the wheel.
When it comes to the interior, the eye-catcher is the revamped 10.25” console paired with a diagonal instrumental cluster. It’s easy to control given the multifunction steering wheel, thus reducing distraction and risk of accidents. You can also toy on the MMI navigation plus wherein the displays show in the virtual Audi cockpit. This has three different views, not to mention the larger Audi virtual cockpit all made for the newest Q3.
Connectivity is never an issue in this upcoming automotive treasure. Inside, there’s a 10.1” touchscreen display where you can explore your multimedia files and navigation all without the hassle.
Aside from this, there’s no doubt that the Q3 has been blessed with cutting edge technology. It has the natural-language voice control which Audi claims to be more precise and way better than regular voice commands.
As we can all remember, the Q3 is one of Audi’s affordable cars. It’s also one of the oldest in the brand’s lineup until this new facelift that’s set to hit the U.S. market come 2019.
Compared to its predecessors, the new Q3 is more aggressive and dashing. Some people may find it too powerful, still, not plain or boring in the eyes. Its front appearance shares the same muscular burrows with that of the Q8 but in a subcompact way.
Size-wise, the 2019 Q3 has grown bigger, allowing more space for the passengers to roll over. Basically, it grew 3.8 inches longer than the current Q3 and its wheelbase has an added 3.1 inches. The backseats also allow for more room since it can be split at 40/20/40. You can load cargo and passengers here in any way.
For the launching of the new Q3, four engines are planned to be released in Europe but the front-drive version is unlikely to be offered in the U.S. Audi started selling the 2019 Q3 in Germany last November but it’s yet to announce the exact launch date for the U.S. Some experts predict that it will likely be around the first or second quarter of 2019. There’s no official price for it either when it comes to the U.S. market. Based on the previous Q3’s price, it would likely go over $40,000. Still, the brand is about to release further details.
