Audi’s confirmed it’ll bolster its SUV range with a new coupe-styled Q4 model in 2019 that’ll sit between the Q3 and Q5

  • New Audi Q4 SUV coupe confirmed for production
  • Should be based on the new Q3 platform
  • Will go on sale in 2019
  • Expected to cost from around £30,000

Audi’s confirmed it’ll put a compact SUV coupe called the Q4 into production in 2019. This new, more stylish alternative to the upcoming Q3 replacement is expected to cost from £30,000.

The new Q4 should look similar to the TT Offroad concept, shown here

The new Q4 is expected to draw inspiration from the TT Offroad concept, shown above, and the new Q3 due in 2018. It’ll probably favour a sloping roofline in place of the Q3’s boxy silhouette and could boast more aggressive front and rear bumpers to highlight its sportier intentions, too.

A large hexagonal grille with broad contrasting silver trim could borrow heavily from the upcoming Q8 while LED headlights are expected to be offered across the range. Large alloy wheels and swollen wheelarches should also appear on the finished Q4 when it makes its public debut alongside a black rear diffuser and a pair of large exhaust tips.

The new Q4’s cabin should look noticeably more modern than the outgoing Q3’s, shown here

The new Q4’s cabin should feature a similarly well-built and attractive cabin to the rest of the German brand’s range. A digital screen in place of conventional dials – what Audi calls its Virtual Cockpit – should feature on top-spec models while a second screen mounted in the centre console will allow you to access various infotainment functions through an intuitive MMI system.

Elements of the Q8’s slick dashboard could be carried over to the Q4 but we don’t expect it to feel quite as plush or upmarket inside. Cabin and bootspace may be slightly more limited than in the new Q3 but there should still be enough room for a fair amount of luggage in the back.

The new SUV could come with a broad selection of engines ranging from a compact 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol to a more powerful four-cylinder 2.0-litre diesel. A new 1.5-litre petrol, that’ll also be offered in the facelifted VW Golf, could also feature while plug-in hybrid and fully electric models may also be developed.

Entry-level cars will probably come with front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual gearbox as standard while four-wheel drive and a dual-clutch automatic gearbox should be available on mid-range models. A prototype SQ2 has been spotted undergoing testing, suggesting Audi’s keen to develop high-performance versions of its smaller SUVs. As a result, we could see a rapid SQ4 in dealerships before 2020.

When it goes on sale in 2019, we expect the new Q4 to cost from approximately £30,000. Should it reach production, a sporty SQ4 version could cost more than £40,000.
