At Cartelligent, we’re always excited to see what the new model year has to offer, and so far, the 2019 arrivals promise to exceed our expectations. They bring not only the futuristic Electric powered Jaguar I-Pace, but also a brand new hatchback from Toyota, and a plethora of redesigned German sedans and SUVs.
We’ve compiled a list of the 19 new arrivals and redesigns we’re most excited to take for a spin.
2019 Audi A7 Sportback
Why we’re excited: The 2019 Audi A7 sees its first redesign since the launch of the A7 range in 2012. Power output remains similar, with a standard turbocharged V-6 churning out 340-horsepower. Electric and more powerful engines can be optioned by the customer for an additional cost. Major updates include a redesigned exterior, new interior featuring Audi’s newest MMI infotainment that includes two touch screens, and an optional 12.3-inch virtual cockpit gauge array.
2019 Audi Q3
Why we’re excited: The 2019 Q3 sharpens up its appearance with updated interior and exterior styling, Audi’s MMI infotainment and a 12.3-inch virtual cockpit. All new for 2019, the Q3 will only come equipped with Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drivetrain.
2019 Audi Q8
Why we’re excited: The 2019 Q8 is an all-new model for the Audi lineup. The Q8 is essentially a bigger, sleeker, more tech-focused and less voluminous version of the Q7.
2019 BMW 3 Series—330i and 330i Xdrive, M340i and M340i Xdrive
Why we’re excited: The seventh-generation BMW 3 Series will launch in spring of 2019 featuring a new 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder twin scrolled engine. The standard 330i and 330i xDrive will see power figures of 255-horsepower and 296 lb-ft of torque. Upgrade to the M340i and M340i Xdrive and you’ll see those power figures rise to an impressive 382-horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. This will jolt the 3 Series from 0-62mph in an impressive 4.2 seconds. Other features include a redesigned instrument cluster.
2019 BMW Z4-M40i

The Z4 M40i is equipped with RWD, M sport-tuned suspension with electronically controlled arms, upgraded brakes and an electronically controlled rear differential.
2019 BMW X4
Why we’re excited: The X4 receives a wider, lower stance, and updated suspension for the model year 2019. These characteristics lead to a sportier attitude. The main differences between the 2018 and 2019 X4 vehicles are a weight reduction in the 2019 model of 110 pounds, more roomy interior, updated interior styling, and navigation as standard. Trim levels include the xDrive30i and M40i, both coming standard with all-wheel-drive.
2019 Chevy Silverado
Why we’re excited: The 2019 Chevy Silverado is new from the ground up.

The all-new Silverado is rounded out with a suite of interior upgrades.
