Audi Q3 2019 US Release Date
Audi Q3 2019 US Release Date Today, Udi has introduced the second-generation Q3 SUV in Germany. The new Q3 is slightly larger than the 2018 model, and it is wrapped in a more dramatic styling reminiscent of its larger cousin, the upcoming Audi Q8 SUV.
The original Q3 is an impressive competitor that stands on our luxurious entry-level SUV ratings. So it makes sense that Audi has not benefited much from the original formula, although there are several updates, including infotainment, powertrain and safety systems that sound promising.
At the moment, the U.S. market information is limited, and it is expected that further details will be published closer to the sales date, some time in 2019, says Audi. The car manufacturer did not specify an exact date. For the new model year, the newly designed Q3 sees its dimensions stretch and wins nearly 4 inches in length and 3 inches in its wheelbase. The SUV is also a little wider and shorter. Together, these fresh dimensions promise more interior space.
In the outdoor area are the new angular corporate grille as well as more skulpturäre body work and slimmer headlights.
Audi Q3 2019 Interior
The cabin develops in step with the rest of the Audi line and looks more upscale and stricter. The Center infotainment screen has evolved from finding a tablet on the dashboard to a much lower, better integrated position. This screen and the underlying climate controls are easily turned towards the driver, making them easier to see and achieve.
The analogue instruments have been replaced by a digital combination instrument which can be configured in a jiffy by means of steering wheel controls. A larger virtual cockpit is offered, which adds functions such as the Navigation Guide display. We have experienced this with other Audis, and it is a sleek, very modern setup that puts a lot of important information directly in front of the driver and shortens the time that the eyes are taken off the road.
Beyond keys, steering wheel controls and the multimedia dial, the interior can be controlled with natural language commands. The occupants get a boost from the LTE connectivity and a WiFi hot spot, along with Android car and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Upgrades include a 15-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo system.
The Q3 will offer a diesel engine and three gasoline engines abroad. For the US market, we expect the latest version of the turbo-charged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine to be the sole offer. This 230-horsepower motor is paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission. The Q3 will be available with front or all-wheel drive. In addition, the “s line” package will have a sporty suspension.
The assistance systems include an adaptive cruise control that can help relieve stress in congestion, and track support. The 360-degree cameras will help drivers to park more easily. And the Q3 can be parked by controlling the steering, while the driver operates the transmission selection, acceleration and braking. Blind spot warning and tail-cross-traffic alarm round off the previously announced features. The offer of these systems is a significant step forward as the current Q3 is based on advanced security features and driver assistance systems.
On the infotainment front, the 2019 Audi Q3 delivers a smartphone interface with Android car and Apple CarPlay compatibility. One of the available audio packages is a stellar 15-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system with three-dimensional audio that provides an unusual offer in a small, luxurious SUV.
For security, you can find features such as Active Lane assist, jam assist, and adaptive speed Assist. All three bind with the Q3 ‘s Adaptive cruise assistance system.
