The 2019 Audi Q3 arrived late this year and offers are still hard to find. To complicate matters, dealers have already started taking orders for the 2020 Audi Q3. The changes are minimal and the 2020 model has exactly the same MSRP. A notable difference is that Audi has replaced the nickname “2.0T” with a new name system based on the vehicle’s power range. In this case, 2.0T has been replaced by the designation “45”.
German automakers were among the first to get rid of touch screens in cars. BMW had iDrive, Mercedes had COMAND and Audi had MMI. Now, the three manufacturers are moving back by reintroducing the touch screens in their vehicles. We recently drove the BMW X2, which featured a touch screen in addition to the iDrive controller. The 2020 Audi Q3 completely eliminates the driver and relies solely on a touch screen. A 8.8-inch touch screen (with an option to upgrade to 10.1 inches in the top trim) manages the infotainment and combines very well with a huge 10.25-inch virtual cockpit screen.
The 2020 Audi Q3 infotainment system is equipped with useful features such as voice control in natural language, which should facilitate the input of voice commands. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will also be available, so you’ll have access to excellent phone connectivity. We hope to try this new infotainment setup to see how it compares to other systems.
Audi will offer several diesel engines in Europe, but American models. UU. They will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will produce 190 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque or 230 hp at 258 lb-ft. The 190hp version would be one of the least powerful vehicles in the segment, but the 230hp version was comparable to the X1, GLA, QX30 and XC40. Audi might surprise us with a more powerful SQ3 or RS Q3 later, but for the moment, the performance of the 2020 Audi Q3 will be in the middle of the pack.
2020 Audi Q3 price of $ 35,695 at the time of signing.
