Audi Q4 Concept Sketches Shown Ahead of Beijing Show
Sketches of what appears to be the upcoming Audi Q4 crossover have been posted on the automaker’s German media site. While no details were revealed, the automaker did say that the images are of a show car slated for the 2014 Beijing auto show later this month.
In total, three sketches were revealed. From the front, we see the Audi Q4 concept features an aggressive hexagonal grille similar to that on the 2016 Audi TT sports coupe. That grille is flanked by slim headlights and large lower air intakes. Like the 2016 TT, horizontal lines lend to the concept’s wide, menacing proportions. Along the side, the sketch features large five-spoke wheels contained by bulging fender flares. The raked rear roofline suggests a fastback coupe body style. Around back, the horizontal theme continues with wide taillights above the bumper. Large dual exhaust tips poke out through the rear diffuser.
The similarities to the 2016 TT continue inside with the virtual cockpit with simplified MMI infotainment system that replaces the center stack navigation/infotainment screen with a reconfigurable instrument cluster that shows navigation and audio details as well as vehicle speed and engine function.
While few details have been released about the Audi Q4 concept, the coupe-like crossover is expected to use the Volkswagen Group’s MQB architecture that will underpin the next Volkswagen Tiguan crossover that also underpins the Volkswagen Golf.
More details will be revealed when the Audi Q4 concept debuts in Beijing in about two weeks.
