2020 Audi Q4 ( Q3 Sportback ) – Specs, Features & Price
Audi is launching the 2020 Audi Q4 SUV on the market in the fall of 2019, with the model probably celebrating its public debut at the IAA. Now the crossover Audi was shot down for the first time.
A first preview of the Audi Q4 was already given by the 2014 TT Offroad Concept. It was not until the beginning of 2017 that Audi officially confirmed Q4 and, starting in 2019, targeted competitors such as the Mercedes GLA, the BMW X2, and the Jaguar E-Pace.
2020 Audi Q4 design
Visually, the Q3 Sportback aka Q4 is based on the recently presented Audi Q8. The new model is characterized by a coupe-like line, narrow headlights, a wide grill, and a high ground clearance. Add to that a flat rear window with the roof spoiler and flat tail lights. In contrast to the Q8, there seems to be no continuous light band here. The aprons show despite the camouflage already the eye-catching drawing, which reflects the apron form at the front. They are reminiscent of the Audi Q3
Engines & Technology
Technically, the 2020 Audi Q4 based on the modular transverse modular system, which shares the model, inter alia, with the Q3 and the Group models Skoda Kodiaq or VW Tiguan. Under the hood holds a two-liter diesel with 150 or 190 hp collection. On the gasoline side are also two-liter with a power range of 150 to 230 hp at the start. However, the base engine – a 1.5-liter turbo gasoline engine – could be omitted in the slightly higher-positioned model.
This would also exclude the front-wheel drive in Q4. Instead, the SUV coupe comes with automatically switchable Haldex all-wheel at the start. Coupled are the units with a 6-speed manual or dual-clutch transmission S-Tronic. The top model is then the Audi RS Q3 Sportback, which owns the 2.5-liter turbo five-cylinder with 400 hp. Among them is the SQ3 Sportback with about 340 hp used.
