.Audi is getting ready for its next release pallet with the 2019 Audi Q4 spearheading the new lineup of SUVs. One of the most important factors here is that Audi is trying to improve their offer. They plan to bring us an expanded range of SUV models in the segment.
There are a number of cars which Audi has released or announced as part of their idea to take over the market. This particular SUV will be set between the Q2 and the Q3 variants, with the latter one released recently. The upcoming projects that come out next include the Q7 and the Q8 models. These are coming out within a year. At the same time the Q4 will get its release date a year after those products.
The idea behind the 2019 Audi Q4 is a perfect one. They conceive it as a stylish alternative to these already offered SUVs. Namely the Q2 and the Q3. They aim is a younger fan base. It will be a perfect vehicle for younger families who have just started and want to have more luxury and a vehicle which will fit their age and lifestyle.
The way this car is conceived is that it will use the same kind of a design and the underpinnings of the newest Q3 model. But the main difference between the two is that it will grow in size. The Q3 has already grown. And the Q4 will add a bit more length to compare with the given model. It will compete in the segment as a much bigger and suitable offer.
We have also managed to find out that the 2019 Audi Q4 will also take on the design of the likes of the TT Offroad concept model. This vehicle has been shown back in 2014 at the Beijing show. The new Audi model will take most of its design cues from this car. So in a way we can get a design from the TT Offroad concept placed on a MQB platform from the Q3. And in that combination we get the new 2019 Audi Q4 vehicle.
As far as the assembly of the vehicle, the newest Audi Q4 will take on a different approach. It does share some elements with the Q3 which is currently assembled at Seat’s Martorell facility. At the same time they are going to move production to Győr in Hungary in 2018. It will help with the production and the development this way and will give the model enough time to be designed.
The prospect of having a car like the Audi Q4 2019 will expand Audi’s roster and bring it more versatility and added options when it comes to the offer they have for the public. It will also bring a new kind of a style that a lot of the fans will appreciate. Of course, the competition is not too happy to see what Audi is cooking so it remains to be seen what their answer is going to be. For now we are expecting the release date and are reviewing this car for the pleasure of our readers.
When is the 2019 Audi Q4 Release Date?
As much as we were hoping to see the 2019 Audi Q4 model, it will not come as fast some would hope it to be. Audi has already planned out their entire lineup and it will all come out at the designated time period. Their plan of the SUV renewal and expansion has already started with the Q3 model which is the first one to arrive and which has also debuted the new look that the Audi SUVs are going to take. Next in line are the Q7 and Q8 models that have already received their release dates and are supposed to come out within this year. After that it is finally time for the 2019 Audi Q4 to see the light of day.
The model is going to be available by the 2019 model season and more information about when exactly they are planning to release it will be available within the future period. The information is still scarce on this one and it is being renewed and updated day in and day out. So expect the information about the release date to take a more solid form after the already scheduled cars appear.
What is the Estimated Price?
Based on the recent announcements, the 2019 Audi Q4 price tag may only be speculated. It is still far off to really determine how much would the real price be and we are only going to get that once the release date gets closer and is completely determined. What we expect is a price of around £28,000 to start with, and compared to the rivaling cars it is a very solid price. In fact it is a very affordable one if you compare it to all the other models on the market and will probably have an advantage based on the price alone.
But still we will have to wait to see what the acutely pricing is going to be once the vehicle is completely established. For reference sake, the major competitors like the Evoque are priced at £30,600, or the Mercedes GLC-Class cars which stand at £36,380.
How will the 2019 Audi Q4 Design Look Like?
As far as we were able to witness, the 2019 Audi will base Q4 on the latest TT Offroard concept. The details from this car are going to be transferred from the model. They will be added to this car and it will make it look very appropriate and desirable. An important aspect of the design is also the part about the MQB underpinnings which come from the Q3 vehicle.
It makes the look of the Audi Q4 2019 a unique combination of both which are going to this car rather unique but will also give it the usual and necessary Audi features. Based on the pictures so far, the car will probably have a curved roofline and it will also gain a liftback-style tailgate. The model will probably be available in both coupe and hatch forms but those aspects still remain to be seen.
Assumptions about the Interior of the 2019 Audi Q4
There are not enough information to tell us about the interior of the 2019 Audi Q4. We have some ideas on how they plan to do it. But it is still a little bit vague, because they are still working on it. And there are also probably some changes that might come along the way. The likeliest of choices is that they are going to make the interior in the manner of the latest Q5 car. The interior will most likely benefit from other products that are coming out under the Audi. It is no wonder that we are going to see some similarities between the products that we see now and some that are going to come out soon and the newest Q4 as well.
What we can expect to see on the inside of the latest Audi Q4 2019 is a new instrument cluster which will mainly incorporate digital pieces. There is probably going to be a new navigation screen and more smartphone application and accessible connectivity. The instrument display will have a full-HD option while the gesture function control is a big thing which could make its way here as well. A 9.2-inch touchscreen will be great to use here and we can probably expect it to be added for use.
As far as comfort and other materials, they are working on it. But expect to see a usual kind of a setup that any other Audi has. The quality that the designer is offering is often impeccable. So we are probably going to get a kind of a design that people are going to enjoy and like. But at the same time feel extremely comfortable in.
Powertrain and Possible Specs
The powertrain is an interesting aspects of the 2019 Audi Q4. And there are certain announcements already that tell us which one they may use here. The options mentioned so far are a 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine and a 1.5-liter diesel engine. Unfortunately for now, there are no exact output range news. And we are hoping for them to announce them in the near future. The new range of engines will be followed by some old ones. These had an upgrade. These are of course the current 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol and diesel options. They are already using these under the hood of the existing Audi SUV models.
Probably the most anticipated option is the plug-in hybrid model which they have also announced as being within their plans. This version will help save on fuel. In addition, it will generally provide us with a version which will save fuel. And at the same time it will provide a range of 31 miles on electric power alone.
Also in the works is a performance oriented version, dubbed the RS Q4, which is going to use a 400bhp 2.5-litre petrol engine. This version might not come out at the same time as the base Q4 models and will probably come out some time later after the initial car.
The newest 2019 Audi Q4 will just miss on the newest technology offered by the newest Audi cars. Autonomous driving capability is a big thing now. There are a lot of people showing interest in it. But the technology is still under development. As far as Audi is concerned the only car which is capable of using it so far from their lineup is the Audi A8. This will make its way with Level 3 Autonomous Driving Capability.
Audi has created their own branch which will increase the capacity of this new technology. So they have gone and made Autonomous Intelligent Driving GmbH, located in Munich. They are looking for multiple self-driving solutions which will come out first on the A4 model and will probably come with some future ones. The Q4 is a potential candidate. But we are really not sure if they manage to make it available with the technology now. They are mostly still doing to development. Yet, by the time the company release Audi Q4, we might get to see the latest improvements within this technology.
Dimension and Size Increases
One of the thing which has been reported about the 2019 Audi Q4 is that it will increase its size and consequently the length of the car. The Q3 has already reshaped and change the dimensions so we are expecting the Q4 to expand and go beyond that. This means that we are probably looking at a car which is going to be 4500mm long in total. Compared to the Q3, this is an increase of about 110mm. With the given measurements changes the vehicle will slot perfectly in the roster of new SUVs that Audi is prepareing. It will also make a lot of fans happy. The expanded dimensions also mean more room on the inside and more comfort as well.
What are Other Options in the Segment?
The release of the 2019 Audi Q4 is going to be a very good addition to the SUV segment. But it will also shake the competition a little bit. This model should directly oppose the vehicles that you can find here. And will most likely be a praiseworthy choice. The competition has already brought their models to the table. And since BMW has already come out with its X2 other manufactures have followed suit.
So we also have cars like the Range Rover Evoque and the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class. These are some of the major models in the segment currently. Audi is the last one to enter the class. However, we see them doing it in style and as probably offering the best choice and offer that the class needs. All in all, the 2019 Audi Q4 is the vehicle to watch out for. It will be a major contender once they release it.
