2020 Audi SQ3 Performance Crossover

The second generation of the smallest Audi crossover is here. What is next for the Q3 lineup? Well, the German carmaker is replacing it. The Q3 is not going to be the smallest vehicle in the lineup. The new Q2 will take its position. And the lineup of the compact crossover expect some updates. Soon after the second generation appeared, the first spy photos of the special version came out. The 2020 Audi SQ3 is now confirmed, and the company announced first details about the performance-oriented vehicle. We expect the RS Q3 to follow the SQ version.

While the RS Q3 was already part of the lineup, this is the debut for the new model. The 2020 Audi SQ3 will retune the exterior and add some sportiveness to the cockpit. These updates are eye-catching and functional, but the main change comes under the hood of the crossover. The last RS model was able to produce 360 hp and 345 lb-ft of torque. The new SQ3 is going to make slightly less power. Experts say the RS will be dominant again with 400 hp under the bonnet.

2020 Audi SQ3 Specs

Audi Q3 is using a 2.0-liter engine that is capable to create 200 horsepower. The same unit, but the different setup will maximize the output to 350 hp. For example, the S3 sedan is getting 310 hp. We will see how Audi engineers are going to pull this off. Of course, few things are certain about this model. Although it still waits for an official confirmation, we can bet that the MQB platform with the Quattro drive system are part of the 2020 Audi SQ3 package. Well, the RS model will get these as well. A seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox is a power router. Ceramic discs and six-pot calipers are part of the large braking system. Estimations say this crossover will need slightly less than 4.5 seconds to reach 60 mph from a stop.

SQ3 vs RS Q3

The RS is a higher tier in Audi hierarchy. That means more power. Further, this will lead to shorter 0-60 mph time. The RS Q3 will stop the clock at 4 seconds thanks to the 2.5-liter engine. the new generation of the drivetrain will add some muscles and beat its closest sibling. The same gearbox is there, as well as the Quattro all-wheel drive system.

What Will 2020 Audi SQ3 Look Like?

The camouflage is hiding details on the prototypes of the new 2020 Audi SQ3. But, we can still manage to find out something juicy about the upcoming model. For example, the company couldn’t hide the new exhaust system with quad tips. You will recognize the SQ version thanks to the unique grille. However, the RS will have one as well. Larger wheel and arches are upgrades that will improve performance. Again, RS is getting the more expensive option with 20-inchers, while the SQ3 will have 19-inch rims. A lot of black inserts and details are expected. Still, we can’t confirm this until the company unveils the crossover.

Cockpit

Inside the cabin, we will see even more upgrades. Well, both 2020 Audi SQ3 and RS model need sportier interior. A flat-bottom steering wheel can’t be a mistake. Of course, a lot of systems and equipment will be there. The large touchscreen display will be the controller for most features. Digital cluster replaces the classic layout. Leather and aluminum accents make this sporty crossover more elegant. Of course, the SQ3 belongs to the high-end class, and its seats will be covered with leather. The cockpit’s volume is the same as for the standard Audi Q3. But, thanks to the new layout, passengers on front seats could have more legroom. That means either less space for occupants in the rear seats or for cargo.

Competition

Few competitors will wait for the release of the 2020 Audi SQ3 to see a new rival. At first place, there are two German carmakers that produce performance versions of their premium crossovers. Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG is dominating in this class. However, with the new BMW X3 M package and Audi SQ3, Mercedes will have to make some changes on its model. Range Rover Evoque is all-new and its engine lineup will offer some spectacular numbers. If rumors come true, Acura could add the Type S version for its RDX compact crossover.

2020 Audi SQ3 Release Date and Price

The base model of this crossover starts at $35,000. Premium Plus package will add $4,000 for the AWD Quattro model. The last RS performance-oriented vehicle cost $60,000. The 2020 Audi SQ3 will be cheaper, but not too much. With 150 ponies more than the base crossover and numerous other upgrades, we can expect this model to cost at least $50,000.

Precise pricing and the complete list of upgrades and specs we will get with the next update about the Q3. The company will launch 2019 MY quietly and the high-performance versions will be under the spotlight for the 2020 season.
