Audi continues with the development of a new model of SUV type and technical platform of the Q3. Is it the 2020 Audi Q4 or the also unpublished Q3 Sportback? Here you have the latest data.
A new model of SUV type “cooks” at a slow fire in the “stoves” of Audi. After launching the new Q3 and Q8 in 2018, the signature of the four rings is with the latest preparations of what may be new Q4 or a Q3 Sportback with coupe body more accentuated?
The future Audi Q4 (Q3 Sportback, soon we will leave doubts about the definitive official name of this new SUV) has reappeared on the Internet in a new spy image. Despite the corresponding camouflage suit worn by the body, many aesthetic features can be guessed about what this SUV will be like.
2020 Audi Q4 Release Date
The Release Date of the new Audi Q4 / Q3 Sportback should take place at the end of 2019. According to the latest spy images and the recreations of our illustrator Schulte, what does seem to be clear is that the resemblance to the new Q3 is more than reasonable, especially in the front area. It is the lateral and rear parts that will change me in the new SUV, with a more than expected and pronounced rear drop off the roof in the image and likeness of the coupes.
Along with the new Audi Q8, this mysterious Q4 / Q3 Sportback will be the second coupe-like SUV in the four-ring brand, although in the not too distant future there is also a hypothetical Audi Q6.
According to the latest information, the 2020 Audi Q4 will grow slightly in size with respect to Q3, reaching the range between Q5 and Q3. The rivals in the market that would have to face the new Audi Q4 / Q3 Sportback would be the Mercedes GLC Coupé and BMW X4.
2020 Audi Q4 Interior
The interior of the 2020 Audi Q4 (Q3 Sportback) will be very similar to the Q3. In the cockpit, digital technology will be the main protagonist, with two large digital screens both in the instrumentation panel behind the steering wheel and in the very screen of the multimedia information system, connectivity, and entertainment of the center of the dashboard. An advanced control by gestures and almost infinite technological gadgets will contribute their note of exclusivity and modernity in the interior.
2020 Audi Q4 Engine – Gasoline, Diesel & Hybrid
The new Audi Q4 / Q3 Sportback will be manufactured under the construction methods of the latest evolution of the modular transverse platform MQB of the VW Group for medium-sized cars and SUVs. Its engines should be practically the same as the new Q3 offers: in gasoline, the 35 TFSI versions – with 1.5 TFSI 150 HP engine and active disconnection system of two of the four cylinders -, 40 TFSI – a 2.0 TFSI of 190 HP – and 45 TFSI – a 2.0 TFSI 230 hp. On the other hand, in Diesel, the variants that would be commercialized would be the 35 TDI – a 2.0 TDI of 150 HP – and 40 TDI – a 2.0 TDI of 190 HP -.
Another type of more efficient propulsion alternatives should be present in the range of this new SUV coupe. An e-Tron plug-in hybrid variant with 100% electric autonomy of more than 50 km is the most viable. Finally, lovers of sportsmanship could also enjoy a hypothetical RS version, with a 2.5 TFSI 5-cylinder petrol engine and a power that could be around or even exceed 400 HP.
