Audi Q3 2019 Specs
Audi Q3 2019 Specs welcome to audicarusa.com discover New Audi sedans, SUVs & coupes get our expert review. The smaller 2019 Audi Q3 distills the latest crossover form of the car manufacturer to a smaller package. With an octagonal grid borrowed from the much larger Q8, the new 2019 Q3 is relatively daring and a departure.
However, the greatest changes may not be apparent at first sight. With the 2019 Q3, Audi has changed its entry-level crossover SUV into the modern MQB module architecture, which now underpins most of the VW and Audi models. The new platform means that the Q3 ‘s wheelbase extends by about 3 inches, while its total length increases by about 4 inches to 176.6 inches. The newly designed Q3 is also about an inch wider than its predecessor.
This gives the Q3 a larger footprint than its direct rivals, which include subcompact crossover SUVs such as the BMW X1, the Mercedes-Benz GLA class and Volvo XC40. The newly found scale reaps benefits inside where the 5-seater Q3 ‘s maximum freight volume of just over 50 grows to nearly 54 cubic feet.
At the front, a 10.1-inch touchscreen for infotainment dominates the Q3 ‘s dashboard, in which it is wrapped in a thin silver hexagon that echoes the grid of the crossover. The Q3 receives the latest infotainment system from Audi, which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility as well as Google Earth maps for the available navigation system via an LTE advanced antenna. A 15-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system will be available.
Instead of conventional analog instruments, the Q3 has a standard 10.3-inch digital combined instrument. On the safety front, the Q3 offers automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, an adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and an active track controller. A surround-view camera system is offered as well as a parking assistance system that can einschlitzeln the Q3 at the press of a button in parking spaces.

Under Hood, the Q3 offers four turbocharged engines worldwide with a 230-horsepower turbo-4 paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. For the time being, Audi has only said that the Q3 will come with four-wheel drive, but a front-wheel drive version can follow. A selection of 17-, 18-and 20-inch wheels is available.
For off-road use, the Q3 will be available with Hill descent control, but the sport suspension, which is included with the available S line release package, can match the Q3 best.
Audi does not yet have any detailed standard and optional equipment for the US market Q3 when it is sold at some point in the 2019. Later, a hybrid version of the Q3 and a powerful SQ3 are likely to follow.
