Audi with ideas for Q4
Audi plans to increase the number of models in the crossovers and SUVs section. The company plans to add Audi Q4 in the models list, which will be fastback version of Audi Q5. It is expected the car to appear on the market in 2014 and to have price starting from 35,000 EUR. According to the magazines, the development of Q4 is in advanced stage and is performed in the research center of Audi in Ingolstadt. The car will be built in the same platform MLB (modularen langsbau), which is modular architecture for longitudinal engine. On the same platform is made Audi Q5 and even some speculations claim that will be build also the new Porsche Cajun. Audi Q4 will have dimensions, same as Q5 ones – 4,650 mm length, 1,880 mm width, 1,600 mm height (a little bit smaller that Audi Q5 height) and 2,850 mm wheelbase. The design of the new Audi Q4 will be really more aggressive and more attractive than the one of the largest SUVs of the company, but really close to the Audi Q5. The interior is also taken from Audi Q5 with a few innovations in the main console and back seats.
The engines of the new Audi Q4 will be in large range. Part from the engines will be the new generation of the 2.0 turbo diesel with power of 170 hp and 210 hp. Also the car will be available is larger 3.0 V6 diesel engine. The petrol aggregates, most probably will include V6 with volume 3.2 liters and power of 270 hp. Interesting for the new model Audi Q4 is that will be released in two different S-versions – one for China, Russia and USA with 3.0 V6 engine with power of 328 hp and another for Europe with 3.0 TDI V6 engine with power 308 hp. However the car will be highly expected by the Audi fans all over the words and will offer high dynamics and aggressive style.
