The Audi Q3 is the perfect definition of what a crossover should be as it brings out the very best in what both a sedan and SUV is meant to be. The Q3 is quietly one of the most sought-after crossovers on the international market, and here in the US has become a top-selling import. The 2018 Audi Q3 is taking centre stage and in a matter of time, we’ll see the reality of the luxury crossover with our own two eyes.
The concept of the 2018 Q3 is rather simple but doesn’t mean the design and high-quality appeal will be simple at all. The newly defined curves seen on both the interior and exterior will appeal to both current owners and prospective owners alike and will be complemented by everything within. The subcompact will once again prove its worth when comparing it to other 2018 luxury crossovers.
The following preview details the good, bad, and ugly of the upcoming 2018 Audi Q3 specs, features, price, and release date.
2018 Audi Q3 Specs and Features
The new lineup of 2018 Audi Q3 specs and features suggests we’ll be seeing a refined crossover that exceeds the expectations of the average consumer. Boasting Audi’s aggressive styling trim package that will be seen on both the interior and exterior and for those who were looking for more of the same, there will be a pleasant surprise. New rumours are in on a redesigned front-end that will offer a sleeker and more aerodynamic look.
Some of the biggest upgrades when comparing it to the 2017 Q3 will include improved fuel economy, more legroom for those in the backseat, more cargo room behind the backseat, and much better acceleration. The specs of what’s under the hood will give you more get up and go which was something that was lacking in the current model. The best of the current model will return including comfortable front seats, heated and power front seats, LED lighting, and much more.
Some of the most notable features will include premium LED lighting on the interior and exterior, lightweight body, touchscreen navigation, Audi Connect, Android Auto, satellite radio, media streaming, premium surround sound package, infotainment multimedia, and much more. Safety features will be at the high end of the spectrum which is a testament to Audi’s concept which will include front crash avoidance sensors, side impact safety, rear parking assist with backup camera, lane change assist technology, and much more.
We’re hearing the specs of the 2018 Audi Q3 engine will be a 2.0 litre with more than 205-hp and coming standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The estimated gas mileage will likely be around 22MPG/city and up to 30MPG/highway.
