First Look Inside The 2019 Audi Q3’s High-Tech Cabin

Audi is putting the final touches on the next generation Q3 SUV and our spies were able to take a peek inside for the first time.

Although the dashboard is still heavily covered, we’re able to spot the main features on the interior which are none other than the new high-definition displays used for the infotainment and instrument cluster.

Cutting-edge connectivity systems have become a necessity in the premium compact SUV segment and Audi knows how to impress with its interiors. This pretty much guarantees that the next Q3 will offer one of the best environments available to the driver and occupants.

The current Audi Q3 is still based on the old PQ35 architecture and its replacement will ride on the more sophisticated MQB platform. The new car will be longer and slightly lighter, offering more space and better fuel efficiency. Base models in Europe will be offered with front-wheel drive, leaving the Quattro all-wheel drive system for the more powerful versions.

Audi wants the new Q3 to offer a more comfortable ride and agile handling in order to successfully compete with the best in a very crowded segment that has exploded in popularity during the past few years.

The engine range will most likely kick off with the Group’s widely used 1.5-liter TSI unit and will include a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-pot with 400hp in the range-topping SQ5. Mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions will also be present in the range. Audi plans to add an all-electric eTron variant as well.

Audi plans to debut the all-new 2019 Q3 late this year, possibly at the Paris Auto Show, with production already confirmed at the company’s Győr plant in Hungary.

    So (likely optional) digital instruments (where they still can’t include the cheap looking fuel gage led strips) makes for a high tech cabin?

    Is this a HUD that is not covered?
    Else I find the entertainment screen too low, better have the vent on the side of it.

    Looks a hell of a lot better than the current model, but I haven’t been too impressed with Audi lately. Nice car, but not where I’d spend my money.
