But Audi didn't think that was enough, so it developed this variation of the normal body. Initially, we thought it was going to be called the Q4, but that name was since given to 100% electric car based on a different platform.
The main change seen in these spyshots is the roof. There a tiny bit less window surface, a slight rake towards the back and an overall design that seems to resemble the Lamborghini Urus.
Front end changes are mostly limited to the new grille, which uses a kind of repeating Space Invaders logo that we haven't seen since the Toyota GT86. Meanwhile, the back features a new trunk, taillights, and bumper. It's all pretty subtle stuff.
The engine range will be identical, going as high as the RS Q3 Sportback with 400+ HP. A plug-in hybrid drive is also very likely to be added next year. However, the 1.6 TDI and 1.5 TFSI should offer a frugal and cheap-to-buy alternative.
Will people want to pay extra and get less space? They may not have to, as Audi prices most of its Sportback 4-door coupes the same as the 2-door models. However, the Q3 Sportback might initially skip the cheaper engines and trim combinations. Expect a full reveal this coming fall at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show.
