Audi introduced a new vehicle segment with its presentation of the Cross Cabriolet quattro concept car at the Los Angeles Auto Show last Wednesday (14 November 2007). The two-door, four-seater car measures 4.62 metres in length and combines the genes of a typical dynamic soft-top convertible from Audi with the all-round qualities of a fully fledged SUV. The muscular, powerful, but also elegant lines make no secret of this vehicle's potential. The 240hp 3.0 liter TDI engine with ultra-low emission technology delivers sporty driving dynamics with exhaust emissions on the level of the EU. The quattro permanent AWD system and high-tech chassis with electric ride height adjustment are a recipe for driving pleasure on all terrain and in any curve radius.

The Cross Cabriolet offers a new dimension in open-top driving among the SUV field: its fabric hood lowers itself to disappear completely behind the rear seats in a spectacularly brief 17 seconds; no B-pillar and no roll-over bar obscure the view of the heavens. And for convertible fans, it offers a new dimension in spaciousness: as an SUV, the Cross Cabriolet quattro provides its occupants with copious headroom, legroom and shoulder width in addition to an off-roader's typical height and comfortable sitting position. So when cruising along the beachfront, for instance, all four occupants can enjoy the open-air experience to the full.

The longitudinally mounted six-cylinder TDI in the Cross Cabriolet quattro is the brand's latest diesel engine. With a power output of 240hp and 368.73 lb/ft of torque, the 3.0 TDI is now more efficient than ever - its average fuel consumption is a mere 7.3 litres of diesel per 100 km. The engine is also equipped with what is currently the most elaborate emissions reduction system developed for a production engine: the ultra-low emission system.This does more than just ensure that the vehicle complies with all current exhaust emissions standards worldwide. It already meets the expected limits of the EU 6 standard, which is only due to be introduced in 2014 - and does so with quattro permanent four-wheel drive and tiptronic transmission.

From our reports, the design of the new Q5 SUV should resemble this concept except for the addition of a roof.
