2019 Audi Q3 Review - Sporty, Luxury and More Tech
When you check the European Q3, there are lots of options in engine variants. The US model will only feature a combination of 2.0-liter turbo-charged inline-four which has an 8-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel-drive standard Quattro. The engine in this version will have the generative power of 228 horsepower in a 258 Ib ft of torque. This is quite an impressive additional 28hp and 58 Ib ft of torque when you do a comparison with the previous version of Q3 which has similar 2.0-liter engine. Perhaps, this is a remarkable improvement on its performance. The previous version that was earlier tested accelerated from a standard of zero to sixty miles per hour in just 7.8 seconds and picked last position after strong rivals such as Infinix QX 30, Mercedes Benz GLA, Lexus NX and BMW X1.

How much is 2019 Audi Q3 US model?
How much do you think this new 2019 Audi Q3 will cost in the US market? We expect it be more expensive than the previous Q3, which was sold for $33,000 (~N11.85 million). The 2019 Audi Q3 will be sold for $36,000 dollars. That should be 12.9 million naira. That means if you are getting this product in Nigeria, it will be more expensive considering vehicle importation fee, shipping cost and several other payments you make at the custom. All in all, we still feel it is quite affordable for its range.
