Car manufacturers already prepare for the Detroit auto show in January: a few days ago sketches of a new Audi Crossover Concept were released. The sketches are official, but they are billed only as a styling study. Nevertheless, the sketches give us a pretty good hint about how the the next-generation Q models will look like. The first Audi of this series, the Q1 is planned to go into production in 2016.

On the drawings, one can see a crossover with a shooting brake-like body. The chassis of the Audi Crossover Concept rides quite high while its angled tailgate, high waist and two door design make it look sporty and stylish. It looks like perfect for young, well-established customers who drive mainly in crowded cities.

The whole concept reminds very much the sketches of the original Audi TT, only that the wheel houses are much more prominent. This is a must for a crossover fitted with huge, 19-inch wheels. Its short overhangs and long wheelbase make the new Audi Crossover Concept look very dynamic. On the front, there is Audi’s trademark single frame grille, and the characteristic trapezoidal headlamps with redesigned LED graphics.

Because the concept has a four-wheel drive system, a quattro badge is also visible. Also there is a small e-Tron badge, a hint that the Audi Crossover Concept might get a plug-in gas-electric hybrid system. This system is likely to be the same as Audi’s first plug-in hybrid production model, the A3 e-tron.

The Audi Crossover Concept is visibly smaller than the majority of Audi models. According to Audi, the crossover will be almost 8 inches shorter than the present Q3. The size reduction is not new, though: Audi’s Crosslane Coupe concept at the 2012 Paris show already signaled this trend.
