Audi considers Q1 SUV

SMALLER THAN Q3: The Cross Coupe Quattro Concept, on which the upcoming Q3 is based. Audi is said to be considering an SUV smaller than this.

Audi may not have plans for a car beneath the A1 (for now) but the company boss is keen to churn out a Q1 SUV.

While media reports have previously speculated about Audi developing a city car based on the Volkswagen Up!, CEO Rupert Stadler didn’t seem so keen in a recent interview with Automotive News Europe.

Stadler said: "I cannot imagine that we will have a new model below our current A1 entry-level car."


Instead, the man at the helm of the luxury brand sees room in Audi’s portfolio for an entry-level SUV below the new Q3 that's set to debut later in 2011.

"The Q family certainly still has potential. It is not yet complete," he said.

A decision hasn’t been taken on whether the SUV will be badged Q1, Stadler added.

Audi is feverishly expanding its model line-up in a bid to overtake BMW as the world's top luxury automaker by 2015.
