Our spy photographers have captured more prototype images of the upcoming Audi Q6.
The Q6 mule was snapped undergoing cold-weather testing in Northern Scandinavia disguised in a stretched Q5 body.
The Q6 will become the fourth SUV in Audi’s line-up, slotting in between the Q5 and Q7, aiming to take a slice of the sports crossover coupe niche created by the BMW X6.
The Audi Q6 will be longer and wider than the Q5, giving it a more assertive and sporty attitude. Its styling is expected to mirror that of the X6, with a chunky, high-riding stance and a coupe-style sloping roof.
While many initially said the BMW X6 answered a question nobody asked, the unique model has proved a success in Europe, where it outsold Audi’s larger Q7 SUV last year.
The X6 is taking a little longer to catch on in Australia, however. Last year, BMW Australia sold 343 X6s, compared with 1343 Q7s from Audi and 2770 BMW X5s.
