Click above for a high-res gallery of the Audi metroproject quattro Concept.

Buyers of the next generation of Volkswagen-developed small cars will have one more option box to tick when placing their order: all-wheel-drive. The new platform, dubbed PQ25, will find its way underneath a handful of new models, spanning the range from the low-end (SEAT), mid-grade (VW) and luxury (Audi). All-wheel-drive won't be an option for the new SEAT Ibiza, but consumers of the next VW Polo (specifically the CrossPolo) might be able to outfit their tiny runabout with AWD, while the Audi A1, due out in late 2009, will continue the automaker's love affair with quattro.

      MINI better step up their AWD research/testing...

      Hmmm.... trying to take a page from the Mitsubishi Evo styling book I see.

      This is what I call a very bad rendering. How about try not making it look like others and going back to the Audi styling 101 book. The other cars styled by Audi are more unified.

      Oh, this thing is ugly. Just a little worried about Audi's design direction. The new TT and R8 look great, but some of these other designs . . . hmmm. Where is Peter Schreyer when you need him? (Oh wait that's right, he's over at Kia.)

      So, I guess Subaru was on to ze Germans with their Impreza 2008 marketing slogan "The Japanese car the Germans wish they'd made." :D

      cool!
      I'm already stoked for the MY09 A3 mild refresh that's harbingering this trend: The 2.0 TFSI DSG is now available w/ Quattro ftw, instead of only the 3.2 offering Quattro.

        Count me as excited as well. That was the best news I had heard about it.

      "When I grow up, I wanna be an A6."
      "Sorry kid, you're too ugly for that."

      Looks like the love child of a Audi TT & a Chrysler 300.
