The competition among crossover is getting tougher and tougher these days and that is no wonder if we consider that pretty much all carmakers are trying to expand their SUV lineup as much as possible. Of course, the company from Ingolstadt is not an exception, so there is a new 2019 Audi Q6 to come. It looks like the German manufacturer is done with odd-numbered models and that it even numbers’ turn now.
One of the most competitive segment is the one that includes a compact crossover. Two remaining German luxury carmakers already have represents in this class, so Audi’s move to introduce a new model seems natural. As you may presume, the new 2019 Audi Q6 will have a lot in common with the Q5 but expect to see a nice batch of distinctive details as well.
2019 Audi Q6 Design
As we already mentioned, there is no doubt that the 2019 Audi Q6 will have a lot of common things with the Q5 crossover. This especially refers to the mechanics. So, expect to see another application of the company’s familiar, highly modular MQB platform. Latest reports suggest that the new crossover will keep the same 110-inch wheelbase as its odd-numbered sibling. Still, expect a few changes in terms of dimensions. The new model should be a little bit different.
How will the new 2019 Audi Q6 look like?
We have no doubt that Audi’s engineers will put more focus on aesthetics in this case. The new model should come in a modern, coupe-like layout, which is very popular among premium crossover lovers these days. It provides the more dynamical appearance and clearly emphasizes model’s sporty characteristics. On the other side, count on less practicality. We will talk more about this in the interior section. In terms of overall styling approach, expect a pretty similar front end to the Q5.
The popular compact crossover might be around for a full decade, but the current model is present on the market since last year. This clearly indicates that no bigger changes are to come in the 2019 Audi Q6. On the other side, expect to see a sloping roof layout at back, as well as a little bit different rear end, with a lot of inspiration taken from Audi’s Sportback models.
2019 Audi Q6 Interior
As we already mentioned, one of the main characteristics of 2019 Audi Q6 interior will be lack of practicality. Due to sloping roof design, the new crossover will definitely come with less headroom, maybe even with tighter legroom. Also, count on less cargo space as well. On the other side, the dashboard design should be pretty much the same as on the Q5 model. Same layout, highlighted by the company’s new Virtual Cockpit and other tech features.
2019 Audi Q6 Engines
Many reports suggest an arrival of 2019 Audi Q6 e-Tron or something like that, but this doesn’t sound so likely at the moment. The 2019 Audi Q6 will most likely come with same gasoline units as the Q5 model. This means a familiar 2.0-liter turbo inline-four reserved for the base model. Higher trims will get a bigger 3.0-liter V6, which is good for about 355 horsepower.
Of course, European models will be available with TDI diesel units as well. The 2019 Audi Q6 electric probably won’t come so soon.
2019 Audi Q6 Release Date and Price
We are still waiting for some official details about the 2019 Audi Q6 release date, but the latest reports indicate its arrival in the first half of next year. When it comes to the price, base versions should go around 50.000 dollars. Main rivals will be BMW X4 and Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe.
