The 2019 Audi Q4 is confirmed for the next season. However, the German carmaker is not stopping there when we talk about its crossover range. The Q lineup will get the smallest model of all – Q1. Also, the new arrival is the Q8. With these three vehicles, Audi will have a more versatile offer.
Whatsoever, the Q1 is somehow separately reviewed from 2019 Audi Q4 and Q8. The latest two share a lot of in common, including the release date. Both crossovers will come together when Audi decides it is time for launch. Fans and experts are hoping to see them soon.
2019 Audi Q4 Specs
As the number in its name suggests, the 2019 Audi Q4 will be positioned between Q3 and Q5 crossovers. The SUV will definitely borrow few things from each of its siblings. One of the parts we can see on multiple vehicles is a drivetrain. But, in this case, the Q4 goes to another segment. It will use the architecture from the TT off-road concept. That means the new SUV is going to get power from a 2.5-liter five-cylinder unit. Audi is using it in TT RS model, and there the engine can produce 400 hp.
2019 Audi Q4 as the Replacement for Q3?
This is not likely to happen, especially with such powerful engine. The 2019 Audi Q4 will produce two times more power than the outgoing Q3 delivers. However, the company confirmed that this model is not going to be part of the squad in future. Experts share the opinion that Q4 could be the model that will replace the compact SUV. But, with such output, we doubt it is going to happen.
2019 Audi Q4 Alternative Engine
The 2019 Audi Q4 could keep the engine from its smaller sibling. A 2.0-liter turbo-four perfectly suits the compact segment with 200 hp. The same unit is in regular TT cars. Audi Q4 could also get an RS edition, while the base models would be good even with a less powerful engine.
2019 Audi Q4 Spy Shots and Teaser Images
There are witnesses of 2019 Audi Q4 rolling on streets already. We have first images of the new crossover. Although it is under heavy camouflage, we can spot some details. Nevertheless, it is way too early for first conclusions since the vehicle is not going to arrive by the end of 2019. However, being in the same stories and rumors with Q1 and Q8 tells us these three models will bring something new. The shortage of information only spreads the aura above them and makes fans wait more eagerly.
Audi Makes a New Lineup of Crossovers for 2019
So, we have a 2019 Audi Q4 taking the slot between a proven compact crossover and flagship SUV. The Q5 is a legend and the first Audi’s vehicle in this class. The Q3 had a big popularity, but it seems like that model needs a reinforcement. The compact crossover segment is growing too fast and subclasses the key for versatility.
However, next season we will see even more novelties. The new smallest and the biggest SUVs are also on the way. At the bottom end, we will find Q1, and the largest one will be Q8. Nevertheless, there are stories about the Q9, so the life of Audi Q8 as the biggest crossover Audi ever made is not going to last for too long.
2019 Audi Q4 Competition and Price
The 2019 Audi Q4 is not going to be too bigger and much more expensive than its closest sibling. The latest Q3 costs $33,000. We believe that Audi Q4 will start from $36,000. Audi Q5 as the bigger crossover starts from above $50,000. So, the cost of the Q4 will be between these two.
Also, this crossover will be the direct rival to BMQ X2. In the premium compact class, we can find some other similar vehicles, but the Germans are competing for each other and that leads to progress of both companies. But, Range Rover Evoque and Infiniti QX30 could spoil the party.
