Audi Cross Cabriolet quattro was unveiled at Los Angeles Auto Show instead of the Q5 SUV that we all were expecting. But Audi is really thinking giving green line o the concept, and we might actually seen it on the roads as a drop-top version of the forthcoming Q5 SUV.

Brit Steve Lewis is design chief for Audi USA, which created the Cross Cabriolet. Speaking at the event, he said: "Such a vehicle has been talked about within Audi for quite some time, because nobody else has ever produced a cabriolet SUV before."

"If there is sufficient demand for around 5,000 units a year, this model could go into limited production, and arrive in showrooms around 2010.

Nobody’s ever done a convertible SUV before? Audi needs to rein itself in. Jeep, Suzuki, Isuzu, Land-Rover/Range-Rover, Kia, and even International with their Scout have been down that road. And some still walk those roads. What is perhaps a bit more accurate is nobody has ever done a crossover convertible before...then...maybe...

come on ! the car is ugly ! bring the Audi A1 metro project, that would be a much better idea. Anyway by 2010, this concept will be old. And we should already have the A3 and A2 convertible
