Audi's not resting on its laurels after the much-anticipated debut of its new TT coupe. A pair of new prototypes has been caught testing that show a future small SUV and the next A4 sports sedan. The small SUV will be called the Q5 and enter an increasingly crowded entry-level luxury market for softroaders that includes the BMW X3 and upcoming Lincoln MDX and Acura RDX. TCC nabbed a spy shot of a Q5 mule wearing outdated A4 sheetmetal being tested on the Ring in Germany.
The spyshot of the next A4 reveals that that Audi will resist the urge to increase the size of its next sport sedan and instead shrink it by between three to four inches. In our opinion that's great news, as the obesity of autos in the modern era is reaching epidemic proportions. Don't expect the A4's muscle to atrophy, however, as a range of four- and six-cylinder engines, as well as diesels, will still be available, including a rumored 500-hp powerplant to rival the next M3.
