The company made the announcement recently 2018-2019 Audi for its new compact crossover, which has experienced a restyling and is almost ready to to get to the authorized dealers worldwide.
It would be correct to say that the German manufacturer has prepared just two versions of its compact. This is normal, if you can call it, 2018-2019 Audi Ku 3 2016, and its charged version, which received the traditional name of the RS Q3. So today we offer you to discover it with these two new products.
Of course, 2018-2019 Audi, as always, chose the right time to carry out planned restyling. They made adjustments in appearance, have added private vehicles, as well as worked on improving performance. Dorestaylingovoy outdated version called simply does not turn language. However, it is now a time when consumers are carefully studied Ku 3 and want something bigger, better and more attractive. This 2018-2019 Audi has prepared for them.
According to the official photo and video materials, which are provided on the internet manufacturer from Germany, can be seen immediately that the total change in the image of the compact crossover has not occurred. In principle, no one had expected.
First of all, we are talking about the restyling, a small facelift, but not about a new generation of output. Plus Q3 appearance and was so on the ball. So what is the point to change the already immaculate exterior? That is exactly what the designers thought, developing an updated look.
As a result, major modernization touched directly the front. Now here is the RS Q3 and Q3 have a new trim grille with chrome frame. Their corners gently moving in head optics, which is full of LEDs and has a rather unusual but very interesting and attractive form.
Unfortunately, the full LED headlights system are available as options. It will consist of a total of 27 LED lights. And at the base of the xenon head optics will, while daytime running lights – LED.
Changes in the profile is not particularly. At least, we have not noticed them yet. Perhaps, on closer examination, that’s the will.
However, this does not take away the ideal radius of the wheel arches, expressive exterior mirrors, suitable for boarding and alighting doors, as well as almost flat roofline.
Behind, we note the emergence of a new bumper, which emphasized the dynamism and sportiness in the nature of a compact crossover. Dimensions in the database will be halogen, although to get the dynamic direction indicators based on LEDs with 3D effect the buyer can. But, again for a fee.
Basically, it is all the innovations offered by 2018-2019 Audi for its updated crossovers. As before, the charged version will be slightly different from the usual other bumpers and some strokes. As a result, the size and they were different.
- 2018-2019 Audi Q3:
- length – 4388 mm
- width – 1831 mm
- height – 1590 mm
- wheelbase – 2603 mm
- ground clearance – 170 mm.
- 2018-2019 Audi RS Q3:
- length – 4411 mm
- width – 1841 mm
- height – 1580 mm
- wheelbase – 2603 mm
- ground clearance – 170 mm.
Plus, the manufacturer has added features to make your customers more individual compact crossover. For this proposed expanded line of body color choices, seven new drawings on the wheel rims, as well as the old disks. All in all, a choice of about seventeen options complement the wheel arches. It can accommodate wheels of different radii – from 16 to 20 inches.
Someone upset, and someone will rejoice, but the interior of the manufacturer did not touch it. On the one hand, I would like to see something new, updated and interesting. On the other, the interior dorestaylingovoy version was already perfect, had no flaws and shortcomings.
That in the end and there is a question – what to do was the company with the interior? The 2018-2019 Audi decided to amuse both sides, leaving the interior almost untouched, but adding a subtle touches updates. So, crossovers have got new trim elements on the door handles inside, the design of the duct, on the arm of a transmission. This gave the car rigor and conciseness.
In addition, customers can now shop and pick up more individually on its registration as colors for finishing the front armrest, door cards, ceiling and, of course, seats, has become even greater.
But still before us already familiar with the quality performance and refined interior trim materials. Do not be confused by much size crossovers, because even with their interior is designed for full occupancy of five passengers. Three people in the back row? No problem. Even if they are tall and big body.
Cargo capacity will also carry a lot of baggage. In the normal position in a filled compartment, in the luggage compartment of 460 liters fit. The space can be increased to 1365 liters, simple moves down the rear seat backrests.
Total consumer provides a complete set of four options, from basic and secondary Base and the Comfort, to more advanced Design and Sport.
The base car looks quite modest, although the available options show a reasonably good equipment. So, the basic equipment includes the presence of such equipment:
- rain and light sensor
- cloth interior
- leather steering wheel
- forged wheels 16 inches
- Halogen headlights
- front fog lights
- exterior rear view mirrors heated
- roof rails
- full power
- assistance systems ESP and ABS.
More expensive equipment will provide:
- modern multimedia complex
- powerful audio system
- alloy wheels with different diameters
- LED optics
- Cruise control
- adaptive climate control
- special package sports body kit and interior design and so on.
In fact, the equipment available in trim levels and options are many. Enumerate them insanely long. In addition, its sets and the possibility of individual selection of components will be provided in different countries. For example, you can choose the color scheme of the body on their own in some dealerships, is available the list of options.
The car is offered with a rather broad line of motors, which will be discussed later. However, it is the engines have a direct impact on the cost of new items.
Thus, 2018-2019 Audi Q3 with the weakest engine will cost between $ 1.33 million rubles. For the most expensive petrol version with an automatic and all-wheel drive the price will start at 1.57 million rubles. But the diesel version will be even more expensive, because the initial costs of 1.6 million rubles.
As a result, we can say that in comparison with dorestaylingovoy version, the updated version added to the starting price of just 700 euros. Quite a bit, considering all the innovations. But for the RS version will have to pay 2 thousand euros more than for the current version of the compact crossover charged. But the price tags for Germany. The cost of new products for Europe and Russia will be announced early next year.
By the way, Europeans and Russians will have access to the upgraded crossovers since February .
Now let’s talk about how, for what, in fact, has been started restyling. Company 2018-2019 Audi main focus of the changes it made to the specifications of its compact crossover.
Well, the line of powertrain consists of three diesel and three petrol powertrains. And gasoline – all from the family TFSI, in diesel – with turbines. Available front- or all-wheel drive. Transmissions:
- six-speed manual gearbox
- Gearbox six-speed S Tronic
- seven-speed gearshift S Tronic.
- Petrol engines:
- Junior engine of 1.4 liter has 150 hp and 250 Nm of torque. It works in tandem with a six-speed mechanics or machine. Before hundreds – of 9.2 seconds and 8.9 seconds on the mechanics and machine respectively. Average fuel consumption – 5.5 and 5.8 liters. It is possible to disable one or two cylinders.
- Next the engine received a volume of 2 liters and is available in two versions boost.
- 180 horsepower and 320 Nm of torque
- 220 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque. (Both engines have approximately the same average fuel consumption – 6.6-6.9 liters.)
- Diesel engines:
- In fact, one motor, however, has two options power. A weaker version has 150 hp and 340 Nm.
- Forced version boasts 180 horses and 380 Nm. (Consume these engines about 5 liters per hundred kilometers in the combined cycle.)
Separately want to talk about the engine version for the 2018-2019 Audi RS Q3 compact crossover. Of course, it is an upgraded version of the previous engine. Now, however, he became more powerful once the thirty horsepower.
Its working volume of 2.5 liters. Motor gasoline, belongs to the family TFSI. His actual power – 340 horsepower, and torque – 450 Nm. Complete with seven-step automatic S Tronic and Quattro all-wheel drive system.
Due to such characteristics of the dynamics of dispersal from a place to mark a hundred kilometers per hour is 4.8 seconds. The maximum in the crossover can accelerate to 250 kilometers per hour. As always, the maximum speed is electronically limited, because the real potential of new items are much higher.
There and availability of the system start-stop. Due to this powerful engine will consume an average of only 8.4 liters per hundred kilometers traveled path.
2018-2019 Audi Q3 RS Q3 and 2016 – that is what many expected. Crossovers are updated, they have become even more interesting in appearance, better inside, more powerful and more economical than in the engine compartment.
2018-2019 Audi – this is one of those companies that know how to properly dispose of the existing potential of cars, and to constantly offer something new and even more interesting. And despite the fact that prior to the updated versions of cars called the best and almost perfect. Restyling Ku 3 and Ku RL 3 – evidence that there is always something to strive for.
