Weaving new SUVs continues to splash every car show, but new prototypes of riding models are constantly seen on the streets. Audi has recently been seen testing a fresh Audi Q7 model but a completely new model with “four rings” is also being used. After the introduction of the latest Audi Q8 model, Audi will bring a new example that is smaller than the Q-range in the showroom for 2020 model.
The new Audi Q4 model will be a derivative like Audi Q3 and two models will share platforms, engine and equipment. This model will offer a number of powertrain options depending on the market and eventually get the PHEV variant during the life cycle. The new coupe-style crossover will also get the latest technology and security equipment.
2020 Audi Q4 Design, Features
Audi hinted at the arrival of Audi Q4 model with TT Off-Road Concept at 2014 Beijing Auto Show and the recently caught prototype model seems to have a production ready form. The new Audi Q-range must be marketed as a 2020 model and must borrow a lot from Audi Q3 version.
Although we heard from Audi that Audi Q4 would not only be the coupe version of Audi Q3 model but more typical, the two models would share many MQB platforms everywhere. Audi Q4 can, however, rise in the wheelbase slightly longer than Audi Q3 model.
As for style, the prototype version reveals more angular shapes than in Audi Q3 with a coupe style profile. The front includes a single known frame grille and a pair of Led headlights with a shape similar to what we can see in Audi Q3 model. Thanks to the fast sloping roofline, this model looks more aggressive than the profile than the conventional Audi Q3 and the sculpted tailgate adds a sporty look.
Behind the steering wheel, the new Audi Q4 must also borrow a lot from Audi Q3 and the latest brand models. Lines and horizontal oriented shapes combined with electronic devices will dominate on the dashboard. Audi will also use high-end materials, aluminum and wood trim to enhance the look and feel of the interior.
This model will also arrive with the latest technological and safety achievements and increased comfort. The new Q-range Audi will adopt the latest 9.2-inch infotainment display from the brand as well as the 10.25-inch instrument cluster. Audi will also complete a new crossover like a coupe with advanced technology and safety systems such as adaptive cruise control, active line assist and a blind spot monitor.
2020 Audi Q4 Engine, Powertrain
Strength for the new 2020 Audi Q4 must come from a variety of engine options depending on the market. The MQB platform also allows the application of PHEV powertrain but it is still possible in the last phase of the life cycle. This model will use a new generation 1.5-liter four-cylinder TSI engine with two outputs of around 128 and 148 hp respectively.
The enhanced 2.0-liter TDI diesel engine will also appear on the Old Continent and will produce 148 and 187 hp. The version for the US is likely to adopt a single 2.0-liter turbocharged four-liter engine. The high-performance RS Q4 version must also display and use a 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbo engine with a power of around 400 hp.
2020 Audi Q4 Release Date, Prices
The new 2020 Audi Q4 will debut at 2019 Frankfurt Auto Show. The first price estimate puts Audi like a coupe at around $ 37,000 dollars. 2020 Audi Q4 will take place between Audi Q3 and Audi Q5 models in the SUV brand line and will be a rival for models like BMW X4 and Mercedes GLC coupe.
