The SUV market has been growing by leaps and bounds over the last couple of years. Every car manufacturers have a new model coming out or is planning to release a new one in the next few months. It seems like the market cannot have enough, which makes it harder for car brands to outdo each other. One car manufacturer that has been doing great in this market as far as advanced technology is concerned is Audi. Audi’s current range of SUVs includes the Q7, Q5, and Q3 and the latest model making its way through is the Audi Q4 Concept.
Audi Q4 Concept – Immaculate Design
The new Q4 Concept will be based on the Audi TT platform. It is expected to have the same elegance with a touch of enhancements to make it more attractive. This is an SUV crossover based on the MQB platform. It comes with 21-inch alloy wheels, the impressive Audi chromed grille, clamshell hood, LED lights and sporty tail end.
The interior of the Audi Q4 Concept will carry on the tradition of Audi being a luxurious car brand. The interior is the same you would find in a Q5. The seats and the cabin will be made of the better material but as a crossover, it will not have the same size as a full SUV. There is a tendency for Crossover SUVs to come out looking like the modern day hatchback but Audi seems to have tried to make the Q4 a little bigger by increasing the capacity to five passengers with the rear middle seat that can be folded to give more room. The length and width of the Audi Q4 Concept will be 4650 and 1880 mm respectively.
The cabin will be fitted with all the technologically advanced features like Wi-Fi, wireless Bluetooth, GPS and an infotainment system with a six-speaker surround sound system. The controls will be located on a touchscreen pad located in the center console. The screen will also have information like fuel levels, pressure levels, and oil level gauges. The interior also has zonal climate control system. There are extra features that will remain a secret until the actual concept car is created and shown to the public. So far, Audi is keeping the design specs to itself so all we have are speculations of what the car will be something that looks like a cross between a Q5 and the A5 Sportback.
