Identity crisis.

The Audi Crosslane Coupe concept is a car with some identity issues. And while it doesn’t seem so sure what it wants to be, it actually pulls it off pretty well.

Essentially, it’s a Q5, an Allroad and a TT roadster, paired with some sleek plug-in hybrid technology, weighing less than all of those cars.

The sculpted hood is home to a 1.5-liter TFSI 3-cylinder engine combined with two electric motors powered by lithium ion batteries. With this approach, the Crosslane has a potential fuel economy of 256.8 mpg. Depending on how you drive, of course.

While still totally a concept, it might actually be a glimpse at a future model, the Q2.

This is the first concept using Audi’s new Multimaterial Space Frame, made of aluminum, carbon fiber-reiforced polymer and glass fiber-reinforced polymer, all working together to enable the Crosslane to tip scales at just 3064 lbs.

As a 2+2, this is one concept we can get behind. Audi knows how to design, we know that, and really, anything with bulging fenders is almost guaranteed to be a winner in our book.
