Audi vies entering coupé-SUV market

  • Published On: 13 April 2017

The carmaker plans to introduce its Q8 and Q4 coupe-SUVs in 2018 and 2019 respectively.

Audi looks set to join BMW and Mercedes by adding coupé-styled SUVs to its portfolio. The new models will be called the Q8 and the Q4.

The Q8 will be Audi’s new flagship SUV and will enter production sometime next year. Based on the same platform as the Q7, the Q8 will rival the likes of the BMW X6. For 2019, Audi has announced that it will commence production of the all-new Q4 coupé-SUV. The new Q4 will sit between the Q3 and Q5 and will feature styling elements borrowed from the 2014 Audi TT Offroad concept.

Speaking on the announcement, Audi’s Board of Management member for Production and Logistics, Dr Hubert Waltl said, “We will integrate two completely new Q models into the existing production network and will thus increase our competitiveness in an extremely important segment.”
