German automaker Audi has unveiled the new Q3 sport utility vehicle at the Singapore Motorshow 2019, slated for launch in the second half of 2019.
The new Audi Q3 is “one of the many key new models in our product offensive”, said Audi Singapore’s managing director Jeff Mannering.
“More spacious, usable, connected and completely digitalised, it is the perfect car for this city,” Mr Mannering added.
Audi Q3 specifications
Exact specifications and features for local Audi Q3 models have yet to be confirmed, but it is expected to initially launch here with Audi’s 1.4-litre, 150hp TFSI engine mated to a seven-speed S tronic transmission.
The new car is substantially larger and roomier than the outgoing Q3.
Its length has grown 96mm, wheelbase stretched by 77mm and width increased by 18mm.
For its second generation, the Audi Q3 features the company’s latest design language for its SUVs, incorporating the brand’s octagonal Singleframe grille.
Flanking that grille are two wedge-shaped Matrix LED headlights at the top trim level, which adapt intelligently to illuminate the road. LED headlights come as standard.
Audi Q3 interior
Inside, a 10.25-inch virtual cockpit screen replaces the traditional analog instrument cluster, and comes as standard on the Q3.
For infotainment, another 10.1-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple Carplay is fitted to the centre stack, which Audi says is angled by 10 degrees towards the driver.
Meanwhile, the rear seats split 40:20:40, and when folded can increase the 530 litres of boot space to a maximum 1,525 litres.
The Audi Q3 can support Wi-Fi hotspot functionality and “natural-language” voice control.
On the road, Audi drive select allows the driver to choose from six profiles in all, ranging from comfortable to all-out sporty.
Four 360-degree cameras help with parking the 4.5 metre-long car, with the optional Park Assist function able to steer the car automatically in and out of parking spaces.
