2019 Audi Q3 in New Spy ImagesJanuary 16, 2018
Audi want to introduce a new 2019 Q3 later this year and the latest spy shots of the car conducting winter development testing confirm an evolutionary look for the fresh BMW X1 rival. Spy-shots revealed by Motor1.
The main features we have identified before remain obvious on this test mule, with the front of the Audi Q3 having a redesigned grille that’s wider than the one on the current car.
There are also fresh LED headlights that can be seen much more clearly in these images, suggesting the Q3 will be brought in line with the front-end designs recently seen on the A5 and A8. At the rear, the taillights are also more visible and are shaped in a ‘boomerang’ style, similar to the ones on the Q8 luxury SUV concept.
The new MQB chassis also opens up a range of new engine possibilities for the Q3, with the most significant being a PHEV e-tron. Audi is plotting an all-electric Q3. It could use underpinnings from the updated VW e-Golf, which now boasts a range of 186 miles.
At the opposite end of the range will be an RS Q3. It’s likely to use the latest version of Audi’s five-cylinder turbo, which is not only lighter but also far more powerful, with 394bhp.
