The first pictures of the Audi Crossover concept have been revealed on the internet. Audi had teased a set of sketches of the concept in December last year with a debut planned at the Detroit Auto Show. The concept gives us a sneak-peek of what to expect from Audi’s upcoming Q1.
The front of the car features sharp headlights, vents below it and a prominent Audi grille with horizontal slats. Carrying an ‘e-tron' badge, the concept will be an electric hybrid. The rear end features a roof spoiler on the tailgate and twin exhausts below. Complete with plastic cladding (which spells out ‘e-tron’), flared wheel-arches, a ski-rack and 19-inch wheels, the car has been styled to look sporty. Inside, the dashboard seems to be quite similar to the ‘Virtual Cockpit’ from the 2015 Audi TT (shown at the 2014 CES) with a digital instrument cluster, circular air vents, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, alloy pedals and a new MMI interface.
The Ingolstadt-based company says that the concept's design combines ‘a host of visual elements from future models with the Audi-typical AllRoad concept and independent Shooting Brake body style’ which indicates the use of Audi’s Quattro four-wheel-drive system. ‘Shooting brake’ is the term for a car body style like the station wagon or an estate. As of now, no specifications about the dimensions or the engine are available. We can expect further details to be revealed when the car will be showcased at the North American International Auto Show this week.
