Now that the 2019 Audi Q3, the second-generation of the model, is finally here, we’re very excited. I’m sure you’ve already read about my distaste for the original Q3, so this new car represents a massive upgrade over that old, dull model. It looks great, with a muscular shoulder line, slick headlights and the same new octagonal Singleframe grille as the Audi Q8. So it looks more premium that its price point would suggest. It also sports a great new interior.
These four new videos from Audi Media TV allow us to see the new Q3 in a variety of different ways. One of which shows off all of its tech and features. The cabin of the Audi Q3 packs ore tech than anything else we’ve seen in the segment. Audi’s new touchscreen MMI system makes its debut in this segment on the Q3, though it’s only the one screen. While more expensive new Audis sport two touchscreens, one for MMI and one for HVAC controls, the new Q3 only has the one MMI screen while the HVAC controls are still physical buttons and knobs. To be honest, we actually prefer it that way. Either way, though, there’s a lot of tech inside the new Q3 and this video helps us see it all.
The rest of the videos show off the new Audi Q3 driving, tackling twisting, winding roads and some off-road surfaces. This gives us a good look at what the Q3 looks like on the move and it does look good.
We’re very excited about this new Q3 and we can’t wait to see it in person and get behind the wheel. Its main competitors are the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class and the brand-new Volvo XC40. Of all of those cars, we think the Volvo is the best in the segment and this new Audi Q3 has a real shot at dethroning it.
