Audi is coming to the Beijing Motor Show later this month with what looks to be an all-new crossover concept that could serve as a preview of the future Q4 crossover, or it could be a preview of an expanded TT lineup. Rumors of this Audi crossover have been circulating for years, and if you take a good look at these photos, it does bear a striking similarity to the Allroad Shooting Brake Concept that we first saw in Detroit last January.
If there’s any legs to rumors that Audi is planning to turn the TT into its own sub-brand, then you can see why the company is releasing all these TT-inspired concepts recently. It’s probably testing the market to see what the reception is going to be for a new sub-brand bearing the "TT" name.
On the flip side, there’s also that matter of expanding an already-established family under Audi’s roof: the Q SUV s. At one point or another, the TT Offroad Concept was linked as a potential future glimpse at an Audi Q4 , the newest model to come out of the Q line, and one that would be slotted in just below the big boy Q5 and Q7 SUVs and just a hair above the Q3 .
What’s become apparently clear is that the Audi TT Offroad Concept will play a big role in dictating Audi’s future lineup. It’s not just because of the new technology it has that can be adopted on other models, but more so on how Audi decides to use the concept relative to the rest of its existing lineup.
