Audi’s smallest crossover model enters its fourth year model in 2018, and what we expect will be the latest for this first generation model since the company is preparing a redesigned version.
Confronted with models like the BMW X1 and the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, the Q3 brings Audi’s simple style language to the compact CUV class; Our only appearance of criticism is the homogeneous style of the brand makes it difficult to identify which Audi model you look from afar.
2018 Audi Q3 Design
To begin with, the new 2018 Audi Q3 SUV will be 60 mm wider and 50 mm longer than the old one. Similarly, the wheelbase will also be 50 mm longer than the old model. This was done to increase cabin space especially at the rear. With this increased dimension, passengers will feel more comfortable traveling in the new 2018 Audi Q3 SUV, according to Auto Express.
The exterior of the new 2018 Audi Q3 SUV was made with a combination of straight lines and smooth contours that make it stylish. It has LED lights, with chrome exhaust pipes for a change. Some changes made on the front and rear fascias, as well as the wheels and roofline make people have a second look at this graceful vehicle. A slight modification in the steering wheel has created a spacious dashboard where some new features can be added.
2018 Audi Q3 Engine and Transmission
As for the driving configuration, the front-wheel drive will remain a standard while the more powerful engines undoubtedly will be paired with Audi’s Quattro AWD brand. The transmission will also depend on the choice of the engine, which means that you will have two options – six-speed manual transmission and dual-clutch S Tronic transmission. A little after the launch, we expect the hybrid plug-in model to be available. This one is expected to join the range surely and will appeal to those who are looking for a green version, it’s not quite as the new Q3 is already planned if the Audi tradition is to follow and Performance-oriented model comes.
2018 Audi Q3 Release Date
The debut of the 2018 Audi Q3 is scheduled to occur later next year, and the possible candidate is the September 2017 when the Frankfurt Motor Show starts. It will go on sale by the end of 2017 or even early 2018. Its production is likely to be transferred from the SEAT plant in Martorell, Spain, to the Audi plant in Gyor, Hungary, where The TT Coupe, TT Roadster, A3 Sedan and A3 Cabriolet are being assembled.
