2020 Audi RS Q8
The 2020 Audi RS Q8 is the high-performance version of the Audi Q8. The latter was introduced as a competitor for the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, so the 2020 RS Q8 competes against the BMW X6 M and Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupe. The 2020 Audi RS Q8 also goes against the Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupe,, which is built around similar underpinnings. The 2020 RS Q8 stands out in this segment thanks to its unique design, but the engine is another highlight. That’s because the 2020 Audi RS Q8 is powered by a mildly detuned version of the 4.0-liter V-8 found in the Lamborghini Urus. With almost 600 horsepower at its disposal, the 2020 Audi RS Q8 is one of the quickest SUVs in this niche. Let’s find out more about that in the comprehensive review below.
2020 Audi A5 Sportback
An all-new 2020 Audi A5 Sportback is nearing its introduction. While we are still months away from the reveal, numerous spy shots of A5 Sportback prototypes provide us with a unique glimpse into the future of the popular Audi fastback sedan.
Captured somewhere in Scandinavia earlier this year, and lately, in Germany and Spain, the 2020 Audi A5 Sportback prototype shows new light clusters in the back, new tailpipes, and even some mods on the bumpers. The car is likely to assume the technology from the latest Audi A4, and it will remain as one of the most alluring small executive sedans on the U.S. market.
2020 Audi A4
The 2020 Audi A4 has arrived with a fresh look, new technologies, and enough engine options to make your head spin. While it’s technically a mid-cycle refresh of the same generation model that launched in 2016, the 2020 A4 looks and feels more than just a refresh. You can call it an all-new model because that’s what it actually is. The updates are significant across the board, so much that it’s hard to look at the 2020 A4 as a continuation of the current-generation A4 B9 model. Audi’s new compact luxury sedan looks every bit like the winner we all hoped it would be. Now it’s time for the BMW 3 Series and the Mercedes C-Class to stand up and take notice. The 2020 Audi A4 is coming, and it’s coming with a vengeance. U.S. availability and pricing of the 2020 A4 have yet to be announced, but those details should come soon, ahead of the sedan’s scheduled launch later this year.
2020 Audi Q4
Audi’s crossover and SUV lineup is already mighty stout, but that isn’t stopping the Four Rings from adding yet another high-rider to the list. The latest will take the name Q4, and as you might expect, it’ll squeeze in between the Q3 and Q5 within Audi’s stable. Alternatively, the new crossover could also carry the name Q3 Sportback. Either way, the fresh ‘ute will offer a more coupe-like roofline compared to the standard Q3, but carry over the current Q3’s interior appointment, engine, and drivetrain, plus all the options.
Update 5/22/2019: The Audi Q4 was just caught during more prototype testing, this time in warmer weather. With cold weather testing out of the way and warm-weather testing now taking place, is a debut imminent? Check out the spy shots section below for details!
Audi is in the advanced stages of testing an all-electric version of its Q2 crossover, the smallest high riding vehicle it currently sells. The Q2 e-Tron (which is what it will most likely be called) will complete the Q2 lineup that also includes the SQ2 performance model, as well as an extended wheelbase Q2 destined for the Chinese market. The Q2 EV won’t differ much visually from other models in the range, but with a careful look, you will be able to spot that it is the battery powered model. The camouflaged prototype snagged by our spies has no exhaust pipe, for instance, and it’s bound to have additional small exterior giveaways as to what it is. It’s also been suggested that the Q2 e-Tron might use the lengthened platform of the Chinese-market model, but at the moment we really cannot make a definitive judgment on that based solely on this batch of spy shots. Furthermore, the Q2 e-Tron may only be sold in China, although there is a good chance it will reach Europe as well - this would represent the first sale of a long-wheelbase Chinese-market Audi model in Europe.
Update 4/2/2019:Our spy photographers caught the Audi Q2 doing some last minute, cold-weather testing. Check out the latest shots in our spy shots section below.
2020 Audi SQ3 / RS Q3
Audi first kicked off production of the Q3 luxury subcompact crossover in 2011 for the 2012 model year, following it up with a series of refreshes in 2014 and 2015. Also offered as a pair of tuned versions from Audi Sport GmbH under the SQ3 and RS Q3 nomenclature, it looks as though the Four Rings is gearing up to release a second generation for the go-faster Q3’s, as evidenced by this series of spy shots showing a black-and-white test mule out and about for some apex huntin’ at the Nurburgring.
Update 03/29/2019: The 2020 Audi RS Q3 was caught testing in the mountains, this time in near-production guides with less camo than ever. Check out the latest spy shots as well as some updated information in our “Spy Shots” section below.
2019 Audi RS6 Avant
The new Audi RS6 Avant has been spotted covered in partial camouflage while making the test rounds recently. The high-performance wagon model of the A6 sedan is the latest Audi model to be captured by spy photographers. If anything, this shows that Audi’s test drivers have had their work cut out of them. The sporty station wagon was even spotted alongside the RS Q8 SUV.
Update 08/21/2019: The new Audi RS6 Avant has made its debut. We’re busy updating this review now, but you can learn everything you need to know in our Audi RS6 Debut Article
2020 Audi A4 Allroad
Estates have always been looked upon as family and luggage haulers. They were never meant to be attractive, fast, or adventurous. These vehicles were boring, but very practical. But with time, estates, aka wagons, started getting glamorous and confident, and lately, even luxurious. One classic example of the same is the Audi A4 Allroad. Other than the slight body roll and the long tail, it is a perfect blend of a sedan’s ride and handling and an SUVs practicality and off-roading capabilities.
2020 Audi SQ7
The current-generation Audi SQ7 was only unveiled last year, but it didn’t take Audi long to start developing an updated version of the punchy SUV. That appears to be the case as new spy photos of an SQ7 test mule have been spotted in the wild. The prototype appeared in the wild with another test vehicle — likely the Q7 — in what can only be described as the latest evidence that Audi isn’t sitting on its laurels when it comes to giving its two performance SUVs the necessary updates that’ll keep it fresh in the eyes of consumers.
Update 01/10/2019: The 2020 Audi SQ7 is being put through pre-production, cold-weather testing and is probably in the final stages of testing. A debut should be coming in the next few months, but until then, we have a fresh batch of spy shots located in the gallery at the bottom of this article. Enjoy!
2020 Audi A1 Allroad
Audi looks set to increase the number of Allroad models it sells with its smallest offering, the A1 Allroad, which was caught testing under camouflage around the Nurburgring Nordschleife. The car in the photos is definitely an A1, but it has a raised ground clearance and what looks like plastic cladding around the lower part of its body.
It will be based on the second generation A1 which debuted this year at the Paris motor show and if we look at what Audi has chosen to hide with camo are a different front grille and bumper, as well as the rear bumper.
It’s been over three years since Audi revealed its second generation Q7 at the 2015 Detroit auto show, so a facelift or refresh is definitely in order. A camouflaged Q7 prototype was spotted by our spies with many parts of its body hidden, but it does serve as proof that Audi is testing an updated version of the model.
Camouflage obscures the entire font, rear, and lower end of the prototype, and there’s also a cover on the dashboard too. It may look pretty much the same as the current Q7, but there are subtle detail changes and, in fact, this particular prototype may not have all the changes planned for the Q7 refresh.
2019 Audi E-tron Quattro
The E-tron Quattro is Audi’s first-ever all-electric SUV. It was previewed by a similar concept car back in 2015 and made its debut as a production model in 2018. Developed as a competitor for the Tesla Model X, the E-tron Quattro joins Audi’s existing range of hybrid models that also use an "e-tron" badge.
Smaller than the Q7 but notably bigger than the Q5, the E-tron created its very own niche in the Audi lineup. It’s not big enough to offer full-size capability, but it’s not too cramped either. At the same time, it’s the perfect compromise for urban driving, as it’s not as difficult to park as the company’s range-topping SUV. The big question is, does it have what it takes to give the Tesla Model X a run for its money? Audi has yet to unveil all essential information, which makes predictions difficult, but we still know enough to paint a fair picture. Find out more in the review below.
Updated 10/03/2018: We’ve added all the latest, straight from the 2018 Paris Motor Show!
2019 Audi A3
The Audi A3 was spotted testing on public roads with what appears to be a production-ready exterior. The hatchback is wrapped in camo from front to rear, but the headlamps, the grille, and other details hint at the company’s recent corporate look. The A3 was joined by the higher performance S3 model. While the regular A3 will break cover in 2019 and go on sale for the 2020 model year, the S3 will probably arrive later, most likely for the 2021 model year.
