The Detroit Auto Show media preview kicks off on Monday, which means the time is just about ripe for previously embargoed images and information to start leaking out onto the web in a major way. Case in point is this Allroad Shooting Brake from Audi, a seemingly close-to-production vehicle that may foreshadow the styling of the upcoming Audi TT, or hint at the looks of a Q1, or both.

The TT bit may seem far fetched, but we do know that Audi has used a small wagon concept to preview the design of an upcoming TT before – back in 2006 before the release of the gen-two car. We also fully anticipate the Q1 to be breaking cover sooner rather than later, so the safe money is that the concept closely resembles what that production vehicle will ultimately look like, though perhaps with a bit more height overall.

And, frankly, be it a TT or Q1 or both, we like what we're seeing. Sharp character lines on a rounded body form follow the idiom of the current TT rather nicely, while the big-wheels-at-all-corners stance plays into the sporting character we'd expect from any small Audi. Inside, we see the same Virtual Cockpit, MMI controller, and vents that we recently took in at CES, though with a slightly different steering wheel (with the starter button built right in). Tidy work here, too.

Stay tuned for more images when the real deal Allroad Shooting Brake concept breaks cover at Detroit, and a better idea of what it represents for the future of Audi, as well.

      I dunno is Audi skimping on body design? The grille and the headlights are the only things changing ...

        they should have left desilva working for Audi. The A/S5 and Q5 are still the best looking Audis.

      They could be on to something here if they could price it appropriately

      The front of this car is the new TT and so is the interior the back is also the real car up to the top of the tail lights. I used to work for Audi and was in Munich 4 months ago where we were shown a preview of the production model.

        one question: do they really put the rings in the grille on the TT? because that is my biggest disappointment, if so.

          explanation: I was hoping the new TT would look more like the quattro concept.

        I'll withhold judgement until I see the real thing but...this styling theme seems better suited to a taller, hatchback style than to a low-slung TT coupe. We'll see. It would be cool if Audi created a sportback (or some such) version of the TT, along the lines of the old BMW Z3 Coupe (or the much older Volvo P1800 liftback).

      Nice. I hope they carry over the horizontal grill slats in the next Allroad. The vertical grill slats look old fashioned to me.

      except the roof this is the new TT. Interior is gorgeous but I can't say I'm too excited about the exterior,sadly.

      In other words, it's a jacked up VW Golf.

      I actually like this body style. It'd be sweet if Audi started a TT family and produced this alongside the coupe and roadster.
