Audi Australia’s busy launch calendar detailed


Engine choices overseas vary between the base 1.0-litre turbo with 70kW, and the top-spec 2.0-litre four-cylinder putting out 147kW. If you haven’t already guessed, both engines feature in the Volkswagen Polo range, with the latter borrowed from the GTI hot hatch.

Audi Q3 – mid-2019 

The Audi Q3 has become a touch frumpy in recent times. This one looks like a shrunken Q5, which is a meaningful improvement. It’s 97mm longer, 25mm wider, and 5mm lower than the model it replaces. The 2680mm wheelbase, meanwhile, is a 77mm increase on the outgoing car.

Audi claims gains have been made in knee room, head room and elbow room, and a huge increase has been made in the luggage compartment. At 530-675L (depending on rear seat configuration), the new Q3 has 70L more boot space than its predecessor.

As standard, the Q3 is equipped with a 10.25-inch Virtual Cockpit digital driver’s display, which can be swapped out for a larger 12.3-inch unit with increased functions as an option.

There’s a handful of MMI infotainment variants too, ranging from 8.8 to 10.1-inches in size (diagonal). Depending on specification, the MMI system incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, voice control, online services, and in-built navigation with real-time traffic updates.
