It seems that Audi is rather serious about expanding their SUV line-up. The current range includes the Q3, Q5, and Q7 models, and the company is preparing a Q6 to target the BMW X6 and the Q1 to do battle with the Mini Countryman. One would think that would be enough, but the company is apparently readying another model in the Q4 SUV. The model will be a direct competitor to the Range Rover Evoque and will actually be a sporty version of the Q5.

Not much has been said about the Q4, but it is definitely not a rumor. The SUV is already at the advanced concept stage at Audi’s Ingolstadt R&D centre in Germany. It will be built on the same MLB platform as the Q5. The model will be a five-body SUV with design elements inspired by the A5 Sportback.

For the engine line-up, the company will offer a new 2.0-liter turbodiesel with 170 HP and 210 HP, as well as a 240 HP 3.0-liter V6 diesel. Petrol engines will include a 270 HP naturally aspirated 3.2-liter V6 and a 328 HP supercharged 3.0-liter V6 petrol. The latter engine will only be available in selected markets, including North America. A hybrid version will also be offered.

Expect this model to hit the market no earlier than 2015.

Wow! this Q4 is one of the best awesome cars that I saw. Good thing also that it also had a hybrid version but I think V6 didn’t really good for it.

It really looks more luxurious car. Well, I believe on what it said that "this model to hit the market no earlier than 2015". I’ m truly wishing a big luck! smiley

Hybrid cars are not really impressive and reliable for this generation, but I must say that this Audi Q4 is the only exception on those hybrid cars. Well, I was truly amazed on its speed performance even though it is on an electric motor.

We need to wait for this for too long! I just only hope that this Q4 is really worth waiting for, and I am hoping also that it had lots of spurring and exciting features which it can offer.

It will be the direct competitor of Range Rover Evoque, really? Well, I hope that it also had an impressive specification, just like what Evoque had. Furthermore, its initial picture is really looking nice.

When will they show the final outlook of this Q4? I wonder if still looks great on its official appearance. Anyway, I think they still had the time to boost more the engine specification of it.

Well, it seems that everyone is so fond with this Audi Q4, and I can’t really blame them, for it truly had an awesome initial appearance that can absolutely get lots of attention.

Well, I think its V6 engine that they were planning to use on it that can produce 328 HP, is I think quite good enough for this SUV Audi Q4. I must also say that this one, is really a teaser!

The competitor of this Audi Q4 which is the Range Rover Evoque is also a good-looking car. Well, it will surely be so tough for all car lover to decide which ones are they were going to buy. smiley Anyway, I would surely wait at another updated news about it.

Nice initial outlook! I would surely wait for the production and debut of this Q4. I either, couldn’t wait to the other updated article about this one, I cant wait to know the other details on it.

Truly a competitive car. Nice profile and gesture. One of the prominent SUV car that goes into more innovate creative theme and design. Thumbs up for its excellent model car.

I would love to see the final outlook of this Q4. I wish it is quite impressive either just like on their initial image but I think V6 engine can’t give an impressive performance on it.

I wish that TopSpeed had an update news about this Q4. It is so interesting and the interior features seems so intriguing.

This concept is really impressive, I love also the light body color of this Audi Q4 and it seems that this one is a very luxurious and snobbish car.

Hybrid cars are not really impressive and reliable nowadays but I must say that this Audi Q4 is the only exception on those hybrid cars, I am really impressed with the speed performance that it had.

I think this is some kind of small compare to other SUV. I am not impressed with the look of the car but the performance really caught my attention for it is quite good. It is also a great idea to create a hybrid version of this one.

Wow! this Q4 is one of the best awesome cars that I saw. Good thing also that it also had a hybrid version but I think V6 didn’t really good for it.

Well, this one is a pretty good design. But I really won’t be able to judge it up until they do the final design of this one. I’ll just have to wait for a new set of pictures.

This is one of the most awesome car model I’ve ever seen. I love the design, it was so simple and very elegant. It’s looks more luxurious car. Well, I believe on what it said that "this model to hit the market no earlier than 2015". Goodluck!
