[post_ads]When Audi first brought the Q3 to the U.S. back in 2014, it had already been on sale in Europe for three years. In fact, we originally drove the Q3 in 2011 before Audi had any plans to sell it here. But when the subcompact crossover market took off a few years later, the German automaker was forced to change its plan. Unfortunately for Audi, by the time the Q3 got to the U.S., it already felt dated. Last month, though, Audi introduced a redesigned Q3. So how does the 2019 Q3's look compare to the old one?

Up front, there's still some similarity in the grilles, but that might be the only part of the fascia that looks familiar. For the second-gen Q3, Audi went with a much more aggressive look, using sharp lines and angular headlights that remind us of the range-topping Q8. Compared to the new model, the old Q3's fascia looks generic and even a bit bland.

From the side, the Q3's sportier styling continues. Instead of building on its predecessor's minimalist profile, the 2019 Q3 gets wide, flared fenders and some serious curves. Out back, the outgoing Q3's uncomplicated rear end is replaced with one that's much more stylized.
Inside, the Q3 has always been spacious and packed with features, but the 2019 version adds some serious style, as well. Using design elements borrowed from other recently redesigned models such as the Q8 and A7, the Q3 combines a high-resolution digital gauge cluster and a large touchscreen infotainment system with an intuitive layout and attractive materials.

Pricing has yet to be announced, but the 2019 Q3 will probably start around $35,000 when it goes on sale in the U.S. Hopefully, Audi doesn't make us wait as long for this generation as it did the last one. What do you think of the Q3's new look? Let us know on Facebook.
