The prospect of a 2019 Audi Q Junior seems wonderful. It is a car which is mainly aimed at the younger crowds. It could even further expand the Audi lineup which is already filled with crossover models. But this car could be important for Audi’s future endeavors. Smaller and consequentially cheaper crossover cars are getting more and more popular.
Market research showed that people are searching for these types of vehicles. And larger car manufactures have already started producing their models. Audi needs to jump on the bandwagon as soon as possible and give us their own representative. Therefore Audi Q Junior could be a brilliant idea to do that.
The news about the Audi Q Junior released in 2019 came out just recently. Not much about the car is known so far. Yet, there are a lot of people who are excited to learn that this model might become real in the future. Also, 2019 is not that far away when you look at it, so the Q Junior might appear sooner than we expect it.
As part of Audi’s future releases we are going to get a band of Q-badged cars. The market will certainly appreciate these. Beside the already announced Q1, the Q Junior is the next and even smaller vehicle which comes out from Audi. It is going to be a two door coupe crossover. In addition, it will be using a MQB-A0 platform, as the report states.
The Dispute about the Name
For now we are calling this car the 2019 Audi Q Junior. Nevertheless, it should be called the Q2. But Alfa Romeo has already occupied and owned that name. So they have not confirmed the name. The car which will bear the future Q2 name is the next Fiat car. And they are not willing to let it go.
However after the debut of Audi Q1, the next model in line should be this one. And by all rights and knowledge they should name it the Q2. But as things sometimes go, it is not entirely easy for a company to relinquish a name that they are sticking by. So Audi has to think of another solution.
The Q Junior is a working title for now, but it may stick around for a bit longer. Actually, Audi produced a DKV Junior model a long time ago, in 1963. Since they already had the right to the name and have used it in the past they could bring this one back from the graveyard and start using it for their smallest vehicle in the lineup. Based on the size, the name will be more than suitable for the car.
Some News on the Powertrain
There is not a lot of news mentioned about the 2019 Audi Q Junior. Therefore there are a lot of rumors going about. The details about the design are pretty scarce and they will showcase and state in due time. For now we only have some pieces of news about the engine. It states that the car is going to use a three or even a four cylinder engine and come in both gasoline and diesel options. Both of them might be turbocharged.
This also means that the car would easily be matted to a S tronic transmission. For now no news about the potential output and any other specs about the car but it will be announced in due time once more information becomes available.
What about the Price of the Car
This discussion about the 2019 Audi Q Junior could be put off for a while. It is still early to tell what the price of the car might be. But as early estimations go, they will sell this car both in Europe and in America. There are statements which say that the price of car in Europe is going to range from €20,000, which then translates into $22,584 for the American market. It is actually a suitable price for this kind of a car. And as it is aimed at the youth the low price is quite welcomed and will probably be appreciated.
Since the segment is getting bigger and bigger by the second, the 2019 Audi Q Junior will see a lot of cars which might act as an opposition. This model is a luxury vehicle and will also make its appearance in America. This also affects the list of rivals so we see the GLA-Class of cars coming from Mercedes and the BMW X1 models as the hottest competition that the Q Junior will face.
The 2019 Audi Q Junior is still a rumored car. But the company confirmed that the they started a production on it. We can expect to receive some more solid evidence about it and more details about the design of the exterior and interior which are currently missing. They need to make this car fast and produce it so the competition does not get hotter. So we can expect date somewhere in 2019 is appear.
