Report - new Audi crossover to become the TTQ

Audi just unveiled during the 2014 Beijing motor show the TT Offroad Concept and while previous reports said its production model should become the Q4, now sources inside the company hint to a TTQ designation.

According to sources with knowledge on the matter, the production version of the new compact SUV could join the TT family, becoming its fourth version and possibly carrying the TTQ designation.

“The Audi TT offroad concept provides a glimpse of how we might imagine a new model in the future TT family,” said Ulrich Hackenberg, Audi’s board member for technical development. “We chose to present the Audi TT offroad concept in China, our second domestic market, because it represents the urban mobility of tomorrow: It is sustainable, dynamic, intelligent and connected,” he added.

The TT Offroad concept features a hybrid e-tron powertrain, reaching 408 hp (300 kW) and 479 lb-ft (650 Nm) out of a 4-cylinder 2.0-liter TFSI engine and two electric motors – and should become a worthy opponent for BMW’s X4 model.

The model, slotted to enter production in the next two years, would not be named Q4 because a decade ago Alfa Romeo used the Q4 designation for 4×4 variants of the 156 wagon model. More so, as it also used the Q2 designation on another variant – so Audi is reportedly naming its future subcompact SUV Q1 – rather then Q2.
