Audi will show 7 versions of current crossovers this year.May 24, 2019
By the end of the year, at least seven versions of the existing crossovers will be presented. Six of them are known – they are in the recently published strategic plan for the development of the company’s model lineup.
The 130th annual general meeting of Audi was surprisingly important in terms of discussing changes to the current lineup.
In addition to announcing the release of a more luxurious version of the A8 sedan, the brand’s CEO has announced strategic plans for the development of the company’s crossover line.
Two of them will be the first such models of the company under the brand Sportback – this is a Q3 Sportback (after all, this car will not receive the name of Audi Q4), as well as the all-electric E-Tron Sportback crossover. Audi also mentioned that two more models will be “especially sporty versions” of the new flagship Q8, so we can safely assume that we are talking about SQ8 and even more powerful RS Q8. The prototypes of the last two crossovers have repeatedly been seen by journalists with very little camouflage, which means that their official presentation will take place relatively soon – most likely this year.
Thus, the total number of known models was four, but what about the other three? Well, in terms of the development of the model range of the company for this year, represented by Audi Spain, was “hot” RS Q3, which will be released towards the end of the year. For some reason, SQ3 was not on this list, but we expect that this version of the car will be presented first.
It is not known about the seventh novelty, but it can be assumed that this car will be RS Q7. This year, this model will receive an update in the middle of the cycle. More likely, this model will be a high-performance RS Q5, which has been rumored for a couple of years now.
