Audi’s all-new coupe-SUV has been caught on winter testing a few days ago. In contrast to some earlier occasions when the vehicle was totally wrapped around with heavy camouflage, the newest prototype shows a pre-production shape, so we are able to see how the 2020 Audi Q4 actually looks like.
Styling-wise, the 2020 Q4 definitely gets a unique shape in the rear. The model features a fastback design and a sloped roof. Compared to the Q3, the odd rear-end shape will have a negative influence on the cargo space without any doubt, but that’s okay as long as people want to buy these coupe-SUVs. The front end of the newly-developed luxury model from Audi will largely mirror the Q3. Truth to be told, the mesh grille seems to be a bit bigger, but everything else looks identical to the normally-shaped sibling.
The 2020 Audi Q4 will share the same MQB platform with the Q3 (and with a number of other cars of course). However, compared to the Q3, the coupe-SUV will get more aluminum parts in order to cut some additional weights. We have no interior pictures at the moment, but it’s pretty clear what’s cooking inside. The automaker will definitely make the cabin mirrors Q3’s.
Beneath the hood, the crossover will get a range of inline-4 options in Europe. On the other hand, the U.S.-specs Q4 will be paired strictly with a 252-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter mill and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Old Continent will in addition to the dual-clutch have a 6-speed manual gearbox as well. Of course, front-wheel drive will be standard, while all-wheel drive comes as a more expensive option. Audi will most probably make a high-performance RS Q4 model sometime later. The topping model will use an awesome turbocharged inline-5 with 400 hp.
The 2020 Audi Q4 will make its first appearance late this year. There’s no word regarding its price at the moment, but we think it’s going to follow the biggest rivals such as the BMW X2, Jaguar E-Pace, Lexus UX and Mercedes-Benz GLA.
