2019 Audi Q3 – Exterior Body Changes and Interior Cabin Design
Tests have been undertaken with the new car under wraps, quite literally. So it’s been difficult to anticipate the Audi Q3 2019 exterior. Although it would appear that the new model might be slightly longer and wider than its predecessor. There have also been a few stories that the exterior styling is influenced by the classic Audi Quatrro. It first turned more than a few heads in the 1980s, but we’ll have to wait and see.
With regards to the interior, Audi is well known for high quality interiors using only the finest materials and paying close attention to detail. The 2018 Audi Q3 features heated front seats, leather upholstery, power seats, dual-zone climate controls. Also, a sunroof, a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors and is equipped with Bluetooth.
Some of these are offered only as optional extras on the Q3’s main competitors. It is important to bear in mind when you’re comparing prices for this type of vehicle. There’s also more trunk space then you’d expected, expanding to 48 cubic feet once the rear seats are down.

The car is capable of 0-60 in 7.8 seconds, with a top speed of 126 mph and fuel efficiency in the 20 to 28 mpg range, complete with front-wheel-drive.
