Audi deals: What’s new, available to order, and coming soon?
It goes without saying that Audi is one of the most aspirational brands out there for motorists. Offering everything from sporty coupes and practical saloons to ludicrous performance cars (we’re looking at you R8 Spyder!) it’s safe to say there’s probably an Audi for everyone.
2019 looks to be a busy year for the brand, with its first fully electric vehicle due to hit the market, as well as updates and refreshes to already popular models.
Available to order and in stock now…
Following the lead of other VW Group superminis, the Audi A1 is only available with five doors.
The new A1 has a subtly retro appearance and its sporty character has been emphasised with additional sill trims, an elongated slit centrally below the hood with two fins and a larger rear wing.
Having had its reveal at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the new A6 should be with us sooner rather than later.
Its side profile is more coupe-like which Audi says gives the A6 a sporty and elegant character. From launch, four engines will be available – three diesels and a petrol. All of them feature Audi’s new mild-hybrid tech as standard.
Luxurious and packed full of tech, no other car offers as relaxing an escape from the utter chaos of UK roads as effectively as the Audi A8.
Whether you are driving or being driven, the A8 is the pinnacle of luxury saloons.
Designed to be the ultimate all-rounder, the new Q3 takes on a sharper and more contemporary look than the preceding model.
As part of the launch, Audi will offer a choice of one diesel and three petrol engines for the Q3 with the petrols equipped with Quattro all-wheel drive while the diesel will by front-wheel drive only.
Coming early 2019…
The Audi TT celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2019, with the occasion marked with a facelift and a range revamp.
The only engine option will be a 2.0-litre TFSI available with either 194bhp, 242bhp and 302bhp.
Audi A6 Allroad
The Audi A6 Allroad will make a comeback this year, with the A6 raised up a few centimetres, suspension improved and skidplates added to protect the lower body. Why mess with a winning formula?
Another Audi to receive a mild update to bring it inline with the new line-up, the Q7 is rumoured to be borrowing a fair bit from the Q8 including its infotainment unit.
There’s a rumour it will also feature mild-technology to improve efficiency.
Coming mid 2019…
Midlife restyling and extra power should be coming to the Audi R8 later this year.
The power of the 5.2-litre V10 is rumoured to be increased from 533bhp to 562bhp, with torque increasing to 406lb ft.
Another Audi getting a styling update in 2019 is the A4.
Expect tweaked styling both inside and outside to bring it in line with the recently launched A6 and A8 stablemates.
One of the missing numbers in the Q range, Audi look set to mimic other members of the Volkswagen Group by introducing a new small crossover into the range.
With coupe-esque distinctive and stylish design bringing to mind the BMW X4, it is rumoured to use the same engines and tech as the new Q3.
Coming late 2019…
As Audi’s first electric car, the weight of expectation is on the e-tron. With around 250 miles of range and imposing looks, this is Audi’s answer to Jaguar’s I-Pace.
Audi hopes that this initial standalone e-tron model will form the basis of a new range of cars, much like the Quattro all-wheel drive model did back in the 1980s.
Audi is promising big changes regarding the design of the next-gen A3.
Due to arrive toward the end of the year, the A3 is expected to be available with 1.0-litre, 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre TFSI petrol units, as well a 2.0-litre TDI unit. An e-tron plug-in hybrid model is also expected.
