Scoop: Audi Tries to Hide New Q6 Crossover Under Q5's Body

|

Another crossover from Audi? Yes and this time, the brand with the four rings is pointing its guns towards the BMW X6 with what could be best described as a Sportback version of the firm's familiar SUV model series.

Sometimes, you need to pay close attention to prototypes to see that they are test mules but that's not the case here as the extended wheelbase together with the widened tracks are a clear giveaway, despite the Q5 body shell.

That said, the new Q6 won't look anything like this mule but instead it is expected to feature a sleek silhouette with a roofline that will resemble that of the A5 and A7 Sportback models.

Power should come from a range of four-cylinder and V6 turbocharged engines in both diesel and gasoline forms, joined by at least one hybrid variant.

While Audi has officially confirmed not only the development of the Q6 but also of a smaller and similarly fashioned Q4 model, the German automaker has not yet given us a time frame for its presentation.
