upmarket styling, extreme practicality and comfort, advanced technology and

The 2020 Audi Q3 won’t come with many new details but the big news is the new high-performance RS Q3 version. The new model will boost the style and performance of the model to the new levels and will be an alternative for the high-spec rivals.

2020 Audi Q3

2020 Audi Q3: Design

Audi redesigned the subcompact Q3 around the ubiquitous MQB
platform and made it larger as well. The new platform provides higher
powertrain flexibility, technology upgrades and performance while longer
wheelbase, length and wider track mean more space and comfort for the
passengers and cargo.

The styling of the model is modern and balanced with the new
signature elements. The octagonal grille borrows the inspiration from the
range-topping Q8 model and modern-design headlights get also the attention. A
defined charter line and subtly sculpted fenders also contribute to the look of
the model. The rear has also defined lines and shapers with the nicely fitted
bumper and attractive headlights.

The 2020 Audi Q3 will keep the things same regarding the
styling but the brand will add sportier and more aggressively styled RS Q3
version. The high-performance Q3 will boost the aerodynamics with the new
diffuser and much larger air intakes will also impact the styling and
performance. The wider track and lower ride height will also serve to better
performance and stability and form more aggressive appearance. The model will
also use unique wheels with the upgraded brakes peeking behind the spokes. The
rear spoiler and oval exhaust tips will also define the RS Q3.

Interior, equipment:

With the 3.0 inch longer wheelbase and 4.0 inches more in
overall lengths the new-generation Q3 provides more comfort and cargo room. The
cargo volume grew to 54 cubes with the rear seats stowed and to 16.7 cubes with
the functional rear row. The model provides also high-comfort and top-notch
tech features.

The subcompact crossover will offer leather and non-lather
upholstery, dual zone climate control, heated steering wheel, a sunroof and
many other luxury extras. The latest infotainment system with the smartphone
support and large 10.1-inch center screen will also be in the offer as well and
digitalized 10.3-inch instrument cluster.

The safety aspect will also employ the latest technologies including adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, automatic emergency braking with the pedestrian and cyclist detection, surround vision and parking assist.

2020 Audi Q3: Performance

Audi limited the range of the engine options in the US to
the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine but it comes in two states of
tune. The base 2020 Audi Q3 will make 184 hp and torque of 236 lb-ft. An
upgrade of the engine will provide 228 hp and torque of 258 lb-ft.

The models will use an 8-speed automatic transmission and
Quattro all-wheel-drive system. Audi has no plans to offer a front-wheel drive
version as sad earlier.

The high-performance RS Q3 version will upgrade the
suspension and braking system while the engine should come from the RS 3. In
that application, a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-5 unit makes 400 hp and
torque of 354 pound-feet. With that, the RS Q3 should put the 60-mph run under
5 seconds.
