Audi Q4 Under Development
If we were to believe our colleagues from Autocar.co.uk, the German automaker Audi is working on expanding its lineup of SUVs with three brand new models: the Q2, Q4 and Q6. The first one that will hit the streets will be the Q4, which will most likely be a sportier version of the available Q5 model, aimed to rival the Range Rover Evoque and why not, the Porsche Cajun. The car will be launched sometime in 2014 or 2015.
The Audi Q4 will be based on the current MLB – Modularen LangsBau architecture, the same one used for the Q5, which will also spawn the aforementioned Cajun from Porsche, yet another compact-sized sport utility vehicle. Taking into consideration that it will share its architecture with the Q5, the new Q4 will probably have just about the same dimensions so expect to see an SUV measuring 4,650 mm in length, 1,800 mm in width and a wheelbase of 2,810 mm. However, it will certainly come with a changed roofline, one that will mimic a fastback and will be lower, at about 1,600 mm.
The entry-level model will probably be powered by a 2.0 TFSI engine that has 211 PS. In addition, there are also going to be two more powerful engines in the form of a turbocharged V6 3.0-liter unit with 333 PS and a V6 TDI 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged diesel that produces 312 PS. Of course, a hybrid version is also in the works, one that will consist of a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine with 211 PS and an electric motor that generates 35 PS.
