Audi previews the Q1 Coupe Concept for NAIAS image

The German based automaker Audi has released the first official sketches with its newest creation up to date, the so-called Q1 Coupe Concept, which will debut in NAIAS next month.

Audi is getting ready to introduce a brand new crossover, which won’t be the company’s smallest yet, because we still have the Q3, the so-called Q1, in a concept form, during the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, next month. The model in question will measure 4.2 meters long, which means that it will be 185 mm longer than the Q3. This is most likely a strategy to get us confused and ask why Audi needs a crossover larger than the Q3, when it has the Q5.

The images posted below are revealing the long bonnet of the new model, the raked windscreen, the short overhangs, the low roofline, the flared wheel arches with 19-inch alloy wheels, the plastic lower panel edging, the aluminum front and rear underbody guards and much more. The Audi Q1 is expected the make its way into production from 2016 and it should slot beneath the Q5 and the Q7 and it will be based on the new MQB platform, signed by Volkswagen.
