The new Audi Q3 has landed in Paris wearing an attractive “Pulse Orange coat”.
The Audi Q3 has made its public debut at the Paris Motor Show with a significantly different exterior design and a tech-laden interior. It represents a vast departure from the previous generation and aims to profit from the crossover industry.
To avoid clashing with the smaller Q2, Audi has stretched the new Q3 by 96 millimeters and has widened it by 18 millimeters. The second-gen Q3 has more knee room, headroom, and elbow room to offer compared to its predecessor. Cargo capacity stands at 530 or 675 liters depending on the position of the seats.
The 2019 Audi Q3 will be offered with a total of three gasoline engines and a diesel. But availability of diesel will depend on where you’re located. These have power outputs ranging from 150 hp (110 kW) to 230 hp (169 kW), and we’re expecting SQ3 and RS Q3 versions.
The revamped Q3 embraces Audi’s new design language seen first on the flagship A8 before trickling down to the A7 Sportback and the A6 Sedan / Avant. The first-ever Q8 also has the latest styling direction of the Ingolstadt brand, as does the Sportback-only new A1 supermini.
It’s not the only new crossover Audi has on display in Paris as the SQ2 is also celebrating its public debut.
