These are the first images of Audi’s Frankfurt-bound Q6 concept, which will hit the show floor at the IAA this September.
The renderings, released by German magazine Auto Motor und Sport this morning show the concept’s short front overhang and a bodyside dominated by a high mounted lightcatcher, flared haunches and a tapering DLO graphic. This is a clear indication that the Q6 will be the Coupe SUV everyone has been predicting — its a segment that’s seen a number of entries from BMW (X4, new X6) and Mercedes (GLE) in the last year.
The rear end of the car is demarcated by slim taillamps — which Audi has previously shown us sketches of — underscored by a deep scallop in the tailgate. The D-pillar and haunches are reminiscent of those on the recent Prologue concepts while the steeply raked backlight is adorned with a large roof mounted spoiler. as expected, the Audi logo sits proud at the center of the tailgate, yet it also appears to be three-dimensional, hovering over the bodywork.
The 4.8m-long concept will slot in between the Q5 and Q7 SUVs and feature an electric powertrain to rival Tesla’s long-awaited Model X.
