2019 Audi Q3 Quattro S line – Stylish Luxury SUV. 2019 Audi Q3 Quattro S line – Drive, Interior and Exterior. Subscribe.
The all-new Q3 comes standard with a robust new 2.0-liter TFSI® engine, which generates 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, an increase of 28 additional horsepower and 51 lb-ft of additional torque over the previous generation. The new four-cylinder engine is mated to an eight-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission, which provides quick, smooth shifts, allowing the Q3 to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 7.0 seconds.
Every Q3 is now standard equipped with quattro® all-wheel drive, offering high-precision and dynamic handling through active torque distribution to both axles. Electronic wheel-selective torque control can add additional traction across each axle through individual wheel braking application.
The Q3 also features a redesigned suspension to provide a comfortable yet agile ride for long distances or sporty drives. Standard on all Q3 models, Audi drive select with five different drive modes – comfort, auto, dynamic, offroad, and individual – allows the driver to choose the option that best meets their driving situation and handling preferences.
The Q3’s fresh, athletic face reflects the brand’s new SUV design language as introduced on the Audi Q8. The all-new Singleframe grille with an octagonal design, features vertical chrome slats, emphasizing the vehicle’s more substantial front end. New, more aggressive headlights flow from the grille into the strong shoulder line, which integrates seamlessly with the wide, pronounced wheel arches and underscores the vehicle’s standard quattro all-wheel drive.
At the rear, standard LED taillights echo the horizontal architecture from the front of the vehicle. Supported by an integrated roof spoiler, the steeply inclined D pillars compliment the vehicle’s athletic appearance and give the Q3 a distinct SUV stance. Standing 1.5 inches taller, 3.8 inches longer and nearly an inch wider than its predecessor, the new Q3 is more substantial on the outside and offers more useable passenger and cargo space inside.
A total of eleven colors are available for the Q3, including the new Chronos Gray metallic and Pulse Orange on Q3 quattro and Q3 S line quattro models. Also new, Turbo Blue is offered on Q3 S line quattro models.
Additional exterior design highlights include:
– Two exterior styling kits are available for the all-new Q3:
– Q3 quattro comes standard equipped with a full-paint finish exterior, and 18-inch 5-arm design wheels with all-season tires.
– Q3 S line quattro comes standard equipped with a full-paint finish S line exterior including S line front and rear bumpers, side sills, and badging, and 19-inch 5-twin-spoke design wheels with all-season tires. 20-inch 5-twin spoke module design wheels with summer performance tires are available.
– LED headlights and LED taillights with dynamic rear turn signals are standard equipment, with available full LED headlights including a unique daytime running light signature.
– Standard high-gloss Aluminum window surrounds and roof rails.
The interior design of the Q3 takes advantage of the brand’s all-new design architecture, built to showcase an evolution in Audi digital precision and seamlessly integrate more useable technology. The interior controls are angled toward the driver, creating a driver-centric cockpit. The central elements are a standard 10.25 inch (available 12.3 inch) digital instrument cluster, alongside a standard 8.8-inch (available 10.1 inch) MMI® touch response display. These control the infotainment functions and seamlessly blend into the black panel stretching across the dashboard.
Acoustic feedback helps make the touchscreen more usable when the vehicle is moving, and available handwriting recognition with whole-word input offers an easy way to enter information such as telephone contacts or navigation destinations. With its logical and flat menu structure, the all-new MMI system allows easy access to various vehicle functions. Natural-voice control helps turn the Q3 into an intelligent travel assistant. Drivers can speak both commands and questions, to which the Q3 will provide comprehensive feedback through on-board stored data or available information from the cloud.
Rear seat passengers can also enjoy improved second row comfort, with a standard 40/20/40 split folding, sliding and reclining seatback offering more overall room than the outgoing model, as well as two standard USB-A charging ports. The rear cargo area is not only larger than before, it’s also more flexible. An adjustable load floor can be set at two different heights, allowing the driver to choose between larger under floor storage or more vertical space in the cargo area.
