Audi intends to launch a new coupe SUV called the Q4 to draw buyers away from the BMW X4 and Mercedes GLC Coupe. This new model will probably draw inspiration from the TT Offroad Concept, shown throughout.
No official details have been released but technology giant Samsung has announced it will open a battery factory a mere 75 miles from Audi’s Gyor plant. This is where the current TT is built, hinting that the German brand’s latest model could be offered as a hybrid or fully electric e-tron model.
Audi Q4 styling
We expect the Q4 to borrow numerous styling cues from the TT Offroad Concept including its aggressive front end, thick black wheelarches and boxy SUV proportions. A sloping roofline, slim rear windscreen and large exhausts are all features that could help set this new model apart from more practicality-focused SUVs.
Audi Q4 interior
A trio of vents above the centre console and flat-bottomed steering wheel could all make appearances in the Q4’s cabin, as could a collection of supportive sports seats and swathes of high-quality materials. Rear passenger headroom is unlikely to be world beating, however, and buyers looking for a large boot will almost certainly be better off with the more practical Q3.
Audi Q4 engines and driving
The Q4 will almost certainly be based on the same MQB platform as both the TT and Q2 and, as a result, will probably come with a similar selection of engines. Entry-level models could be offered with a spritely three-cylinder 1.0-litre turbo petrol while mid-range versions could sport more powerful 1.4 and 2.0-litre units. Diesel models could come equipped with the 187hp 2.0-litre engine from the new Tiguan.
Audi has already confirmed both LG and Samsung will supply batteries for its ever expanding range of hybrid and fully electric e-tron models. The placement of a new Samsung battery factory so close to Audi’s current production facility hints that the Q4 could, therefore, benefit from hybrid or fully electric e-tron powertrains, too.
Audi Q4 price and release date
The Q4 will probably be priced to compete with the likes of the X4 and GLC Coupe when it goes on sale before 2020. Entry-level models could set you back approximately £40,000 while top-spec models, such a high performance SQ4 version, could cost more than £50,000. Customers interested in a fully electric e-tron model should expect it to cost significantly more than a conventional petrol or diesel-powered model.
