The German carmaker plans to introduce several new models in next few years and 2019 Audi Q4 will be one of them. The company is under a process of a complete lineup redesign, including models like Q5, A7 etc. There are also some all-new models to come.
We will see a completely new Q8 next year. It will come based on the new generation of Q7. The same case is expected with the new Q4. This will also be a completely new model, and it will share most of its characteristics with the Q3. The second generation of the familiar compact crossover is planned for the next year, and its coupe-like version will come soon after. The arrival of this completely new crossover has been officially confirmed and we expect its arrival in a year or two. The 2019 Q4 will come with plenty of amazing design characteristics.
2019 Audi Q4 redesign
The 2019 Audi Q4 will be a completely new model from the German luxury car maker. It will follow the path of the models such as Q2 or the upcoming Q8, which are a derivate of the Q1 and Q7 models, respectively. The new 2019 Audi Q4 will be based on the new generation Q3. These two models will share most of their design characteristics. We will see a pretty much the same styling at the front. The company will implement its newest design language on these two models too. So, we will see things like new LED headlights, a new hexagonal grille with chrome details etc. The new crossover will be also inspired by a TT Offroad concept. The biggest difference between Q3 and new Q4 model will be at the rear end. Instead of a boxy rear end, it will feature a sloping roofline.
2019 Audi Q4 interior design
The 2019 Audi Q4 will come with a completely new cabin. Along with the new Q3, it will get an advanced cockpit, with a whole bunch of advanced technologies. Compared to the cabin of the current compact crossover, it will come far more digitalized. We expect to see a completely new dashboard design, which will feature a large touchscreen and other touch-sensitive surfaces, which will completely replace traditional knobs and buttons.
Besides new dashboard, 2019 Audi Q4 will also get a completely new steering wheel. It will come in a racing manner, with a flat bottom and mounted paddle shifters. A complete cabin will feature hi-end materials, including hi-quality leather upholstery and soft-touch plastic surfaces. Finally, we expect to see a whole bunch of new technologies. The list of standard features should be quite amazing.

When it comes to powertrain, we don’t some bigger novelties for the 2019 Audi Q4. We will see a VW’s familiar units in the offer. There are both gasoline and diesel units in the offer, with displacement between one and two liters. The base models will probably feature a new 1.0-liter three-cylinder gasoline unit, but we should also see a new 1.5-liter engine that came with the updated Golf.
When it comes to diesel units, there is a famous 2.0-liter TDI engine, which comes in various output configurations. Base models will come with a 6-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive, while the new dual-clutch transmission and AWD layout will be optional. Finally, we expect to see a hi-performance version of this new crossover, under the SQ4 name. However, latest reports suggest that this version won’t come before 2020.

Latest reports suggest that the new 2019 Audi Q4 will come somewhere in 2019, but we still don’t know the exact date. We presume that the base model will go around 30.000 dollars, while the hi-performance SQ4 version could cost over 40.000 dollars. Main competitors will be models like Lexus NX, Infiniti QX30 and potentially the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLA Coupe and BMW X2 models.
