Audi: Overview of future vehicles

Audi A7

Nice overview here of Audi’s future vehicles. Great things to come for sure!

Audi A6

* 2012 Audi A6: An all-new A6 sedan will arrive in late 2011. More dramatic styling and a wider of range of powertrains are expected. Like almost all Audis by that time, the A6 will feature an eight-speed automatic transmission and possibly a four-cylinder version for the U.S. On the top end, the A6 will likely get Audi’s upcoming 4.0-liter, direct-injection V8 with a single turbocharger along with an optional seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission.

Audi A7

* 2011 Audi A7: This is the production version of the Sportback concept. It will ride on the same platform as the redesigned A6, but feature more distinctive “coupelike” styling. Positioned above the A6 sedan in the lineup, the A7 won’t offer a four-cylinder engine and it will be the first Audi to feature the company’s latest seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Audi Q3

* 2011 Audi Q3: This compact crossover will slot in below the current Q5 and is scheduled to go into production in 2011. Essentially Audi’s version of the Volkswagen’s Tiguan, the Q3 will offer a similar range of four-cylinder engines.

Audi R4

* 2012 Audi R4: Audi hinted at this two-seat, midengine sports car with the e-tron concept at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show. Although an electric version is possible, a conventionally powered model is likely to show up first. It will share much of its underlying hardware with the next-generation Porsche Cayman although the two cars may diverge in the engine department.
