First images of a new Audi Q4

At the end of last year, the spies first came across a new Audi Q4 crossover during road tests.

The German company continues to fill new niches for itself, this time it was the turn of the compact premium coupe-like crossover segment. It is not yet known how exactly the new product will be called - according to rumors, it can get the name Q4 or Q3 Sportback. In any case, externally, the model will largely repeat the new generation Q3 crossover. The front part remains almost the same, while the original grille comes with a honeycomb finish, as on the RS versions.

As it should be on a coupe-like version, the roofline will be lowered, and the most noticeable changes will occur in the rear. The rear pillars will get a lot of tilt, and the line of side glazing will become smooth and flat, like those of Audi sedans. The lights will probably be left the same as on the Q3 model, everything else will be new. On the edge of the trunk lid will appear a spoiler-like piece, and the loading height will increase. In addition, the new model will get the original rear bumper.

Audi has confirmed that it will no longer offer manual transmission models in Canada and the United States starting in 2019. The experience of the updated Audi A4 and A5 coupes shows that their sales with six-speed manual gearboxes fell in the United States in mid-August, and a representative from Audi Canada confirmed that negative changes occurred on this side of the border as well.

Only five percent of A4 customers said they chose a manual box, which makes sales unprofitable for the German automaker. Instead, these cars will be offered cars with a seven-speed automatic.

The latest Audi in Canada with a manual transmission will be sold through dealerships, and sales of new cars of this type will end in 2019.

Check out our recent Audi Q5 Canadian Market Version review.

The new Q5 has updated the front and rear optics with bumpers and has slightly grown in length and width. Interior - nice plastic, excellent build quality, convenient control of almost all the bells and whistles on the steering wheel, a fully electronic dashboard that can show the map, phone calls and a lot of useful information. In addition, the second display between the driver and the passenger helps to deal with the GPS system and music.

Comparing the Q5 with those close in spirit to the Mercedes-Benz GLC, then it can be noted that Audi, perhaps, is a bit more dynamic. But Mercedes traditionally strikes the imagination with a variety of modifications, which is only partially compensated by the presence of a nearly endless list of options in Q5.

The cost of the car in the basic configuration: 45,450 CAD.

This is simply a great car for the money!
