The rumored Audi Q4 is said to rival the Range Rover Evoque.
Audi is planning a Range Rover Evoque rival — a fastback-styled, sporty version of the Audi Q5 soft-roader. It will be badged Audi Q4, launched in 2014/15 and priced from around £30k.
The Q4 is already at the advanced concept stage at Audi’s Ingolstadt R&D centre in Germany. It is based on the same MLB (‘modularen langsbau’ or modular longitudinal architecture) as today’s Q5 and the forthcoming Porsche Cajun, which is likely to reach showrooms around the same time as the Q4.
The Audi Q4 is set to share its dimensions with the Q5, with a length of 4650mm and a width of 1880mm, but its roofline will be chopped by about 55mm to around 1600mm.
