Audi India Considering Portfolio Revamp Of 9 Cars

audi india considering portfolio revamp of 9 cars

The upcoming models will come packed with Audi’s latest technology and also feature BS6-compliant powertrain options. In fact, Audi aiming to regain its standing in India’s luxury car market. Models that are slated to hit include the ever popular 2020 Q3 SUV and the futuristic e-tron electric vehicle (EV).

  1. The Q3 compact luxury SUV, Audi’s bread and butter model, is all set to get a generational update in India in 2020 after it was globally unveiled in 2018.  Inside, it comes with a new dashboard that’s dominated by the Virtual cockpit and the 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The Q3 is expected to come with a BS6-compliant petrol engine at launch, probably the 2.0-litre TFSi engine that develops 190PS of power and 320Nm of torque. It will send power to all four wheels and a 7-speed DCT is expected to do duty. The tried and tested 2.0-litre TDI engine is expected to join the lineup later. The upcoming Q3 is expected to be launched by the first half of 2020. Considering the updates, it will be priced more than the current model’s Rs 34.75 lakh price tag.
  2. The current Q7 hasn’t been well received in India thanks to its station-wagon looks. Its interiors are revamped and features Audi’s latest twin touchscreen central console. Some nifty features include connected-car tech, navigation via Google earth, Audi’s Virtual cockpit, Bang and Olufsen sound system, adaptive cruise control as well traffic jam assist. Under the hood, the Q7 is expected to come with BS6-compliant 3.0-litre TFSI and 3.0-litre TDI V6 powerplants. The petrol engine develops 340PS while the diesel engine churns out 286PS. Both models come with a quattro all-wheel drive system and an 8-speed automatic transmission.
  3. Flagship SUVs seems to be a hit in India. Soon, the flagship propeller will have a new rival in the form of the Q8. The flagship Audi has a major disadvantage due to the lack of a third row. However, it fights back in terms of design and technology. The Q8 looks more like a Lamborghini Urus injected with a tinge of Audi. It also gets that tech savvy cabin and geeky features found in the Q7. Features like autonomous driving tech that comes with lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control are exclusive to the Q8 though.
