Audi has already begun expanding its product portfolio across segments, especially among the SUVs in the wake of the stiff competition. It has already caught on the coupe-SUV trend and after the debut of the Q8 earlier this year, we already see Audi working on the Q4.
Test mules of the Q4 have been spotted for the first time and it is being said that this compact coupe SUV is based on the same MQB platform as the Audi Q3. While it will be at par with the Q3 in terms of size, the Q4 will be offered at a premium thanks to its sloping roofline and standard fitments like LED headlamps, larger alloys and performance oriented engine and suspension setups.
On the inside, the Q4 will be plusher, will get leather upholstery, climate control systems, power seats, power mirrors and a panoramic sunroof as well. Driving modes, an electronic safety program and a suite of safety features, both active and passive should be standard.
Under the hood, expect the Q4 to be powered by the new set of turbocharged petrol engines from 1500cc to 2.0-litre and the 2.0-litre diesel with power outputs ranging from 145bhp to 190bhp depending on the setup. While automatic gearbox will be standard, all-wheel drive will be an optional extra.
We expect the Q4 to make its world debut in the latter half of 2019 and with the knowledge of the popularity of Audi SUVs in India, the Q4 would certainly make an interesting product in the subcontinental context.
