The 2015 Audi Q4 is the new crossover which comes to complete the Audi’s Q-palette. The Q4 concept was presented at this year’s Auto Show in Beijing and it will be used for a family of SUVs which will go under this name tag. The Q4 will represent a new generation of vehicle designed in accordance to the needs and demands of the market. It will be smaller than the Q5, whose design will be vastly implemented to this offspring. The new model will have an aggressive appearance, sporty feel, more than enough space and comfort. In addition, it will have an improved fuel economy compared to the Q5 and it will be more affordable. The new model will, therefore, be something like a less expensive Q5 for those who cannot afford to buy the latter. This doesn’t mean that the Q4 will have any defects, flaws or that it will represent a compromise. In fact, the new model is set to fulfill high standards on each parameter that counts, so the Q4 could be a proud member of the big Audi family.
Appearance, Platform, Interior And Equipment
The 2015 Audi Q4 will have a similar appearance to the Q5. However, it will have some details which will set them apart. As for the front end, the new model will have a chrome grille and a pair of LED headlights set inside a chromed frame. As for the rear end, the Q4 will feature chrome name tag, twin exhaust pipes and a redesigned bumper. In addition, the new model will use the MLB platform which also underpins the Q5, though its dimensions should be a bit smaller than the Q5’s. The overall exterior design will follow the cue lines in Sportback A5 concept, but we do expect the model to look modern, aggressive and distinctive. Also, the model will vastly use aluminum, high-strength steel and carbon-fibers for its body parts. This will result in a lightweight of the car, which will have a positive impact on its performance and agility, but most importantly, it will improve its fuel economy. As for the interior, the new model will have a very cozy and comfortable cabin which will be fully equipped, though the exact look is still unknown. The model will certainly feature a MMI infotainment system, navigation, a rear-view camera and many other gadgets and equipment, so there is really no need for us to keep stressing how well-equipped it will be.

The 2015 Audi Q4 powertrain will depend on the targeted market and it should basically vary from continent to continent (or country). Some of the possible engines is a 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine that generates around 210 horsepower. Other option might be a 3.0-liter V6 unit whose power output is around 240 horsepower. In addition, the new model might offer a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that generates an amazing 328 horsepower. As for the transmission, the North American market should offer an eight-speed automatic gearbox that will the famous Quattro all-wheel drive. Moreover, the new SUV should offer a hybrid powertrain, too. The specs of it will be available later on.
Premiere Of 2015 Audi Q4
The 2015 Audi Q4 should have its premiere next year. Since it still hasn’t been confirmed whether this model will represent a 2015 MY or a 2016 MY, we labeled it with the first option since it is currently in development, and it should have its premiere next year, but it release date is not announced. As of the possible price range, we’ll know more about it later on, since the manufacturer is being a bit secretive.
