Audi’s 2019 Roadmap Includes New A3 And Q4, Many Electric And RS Models


Audi has reportedly used the Spanish introduction of the 2019 Q3 to reveal plans to launch an assortment of new models this year.

According to an image obtained by Periodismodelmotor, the redesigned A6 Allroad will arrive in the second quarter of 2019. Based on the A6 Avant, it will follow in the footsteps of its predecessors by adopting plastic body cladding and an increased ride height. The wagon is also slated to have a modestly revised grille and a handful of other special touches.

Engine options remain unconfirmed, but they should carryover from the A6 Avant. As a result, we can expect a turbocharged 3.0-liter TFSI V6 that develops 335 hp (250 kW / 340 PS) and 368 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque. There should also be a 3.0-liter TDI V6 producing 282 hp (210 kW / 286 PS) and 457 lb-ft (620 Nm) of torque.

Around the same time, Audi will introduce the facelifted TT RS. Like the standard model, the high-performance coupe will be outfitted with a new front bumper and a revised grille, while it should also feature sportier side skirts and updated taillights.

It remains unclear if the car’s turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder will receive a performance boost from its current 395 hp (294 kW / 400 PS) and 354 lb-ft (480 Nm) of torque. This enables the model to rocket from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.6 seconds, before hitting a top speed of up to 174 mph (280 km/h), so it’s not exactly in need of more power, though it’d be welcome.

The third quarter will be jam packed with debuts, as Audi will introduce the new Q4 and RS 7 Sportback as well as e-tron versions of the Q5 and A7. These will be joined by the facelifted A4 and Q7.

Finally, in the fourth quarter the automaker will introduce the new A3, RS 6 Avant and RS Q3. The company will also unveil the A8 L e-tron as well as the e-tron Sportback.

Perhaps the most anticipated models out of the diverse group are the new RS 6 and RS 7. There have been a number of rumors concerning this pair, but both are expected to use a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8. The exact output remains a closely guarded secret, but some reports have suggested drivers can expect 596 hp (445 kW / 605 PS) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque.

    I saw 4 truckloads (literally, not a figure of speech) of E-Trons on the road in the Netherlands last Friday.


    there are no Q6 since E-Tron is basically Audi Q6

    Why Audi takes sooooooo freakin long to release their performance counterparts (S & RS), is beyond my imagination.

    • Curtis 74

      I always thoughy companies should release the halo car first to get everyones blood pumping to go buy the regular car that is more practical.

        That didn’t work for Giulia.

    Interesting to see that almost all premieres are in the second half of the year. Seems that Audi is still in the middle of getting their WLTP-deficit sorted out in the first months of 2019.

      Dez. 2018 102 of 130 engine transmission units passed WLTP regulation.

      Ur wrong my friend.^^

        Well still over 20% missing…

        • Daniela Wolf

          who cares? Only engines that Audi is selling on a very low scale are still missing; e.g some V6,V8, V10.

          Btw: how many companys can offer more than 100 engine transmission units nowadays?

    And still not a signle mention about the RS5 Cabriolet and the RS Q5 even of if their base models are there since late 2016… And then when a new Mercedes comes out, 3 months later you get the AMG 53 and 6 months later the AMG 63

    Where is the Q3?

  • TheBelltower

    Y’know what would be soooper awesome, Audi…. real exhausts and fewer fake plastic vents. An Audi isn’t supposed to be styled with go-fast plastic like a Pontiac Grand Am GT or a Toyota Camry. Get back to authenticity.
