Audi Crossover Concept Announced

While some of us are still digesting the A3 lineup that was revealed at the LA Auto Show in CA, Audi is one step ahead preparing for the next event – the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. The German automaker has just released sketches of its new concept car in anticipation of its debut in January 2014.

Audi has not given the new concept an official name, only referring to it as a “show car.” The automaker describes it as a “Crossover for all roads and tracks, for everyday driving and recreational use.” Basically, it’s a compact SUV, with a look that is very telling of Audi’s future vehicle designs.

Although we don’t know anything about powerplant options, Audi revealed that the concept measures 13.78 feet in length and will be showcased with 19” wheels. It has a pretty mean stance from what we can see, a Singleframe grille, and coupé-like rear.

Earlier this month, Audi confirmed development of the forthcoming Q1 Subcompact SUV, so we have to wonder if this “show car” is just a precursor for the Q1. Additionally, Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG stated that, “By 2020, the automaker will expand its product range from the current 49 to more than 60 models.”

For now we only have the sketches to surmise from, but come January we’ll know more about Audi’s new concept car and what it will mean for the future of Audi.
