Audi cross­over in a com­pact pack­age

Shepparton News - Shepparton Car Weekly - - SHEPPARTON CAR WEEKLY -

Sporty, com­pact and ver­sa­tile: the Audi all­road sta­tion wagon makes its de­but at the North Amer­i­can In­ter­na­tional Auto Show in Detroit.

The two-door car is a cross­over and so it is not lim­ited to sealed roads. Its high level of ver­sa­til­ity makes it ideal for recre­ational sports.

Its hy­brid drive, which is as pow­er­ful as it is ef­fi­cient, makes a new form of quat­tro drive pos­si­ble — e-tron quat­tro.

‘‘The show car com­bines sex ap­peal, highly ef­fi­cient e-tron­quat­tro tech­nol­ogy that pro­duces 300 kW of power — yet only con­sumes 1.9 l/100 km of fuel — and cut­ting-edge elec­tronic ap­pli­ca­tions,’’ Audi AG, Tech­ni­cal De­vel­op­ment board mem­ber Dr Ul­rich Hack­en­berg said.

‘‘We are of­fer­ing con­crete glimpses of the near fu­ture in this show car.’’

Audi has ex­tended its de­sign lan­guage in the all­road sta­tion wagon.

The com­pact two-door show car com­bines a host of visual el­e­ments of fu­ture sports car mod­els with the Audi-typ­i­cal all­road con­cept and sta­tion wagon car body form.

The ve­hi­cle has a pow­er­ful stance on the road and a sculp­tural de­sign.

With a wheel­base of 2.51 m, the show car is 4.20 m long, 1.85 m wide and 1.41 m tall.

The Audi all­road sta­tion wagon rep­re­sents the first time that Audi has com­bined the all­road and e-tron.

For a full run­down on Audi and their ve­hi­cles call into the Audi Cen­tre Shepparton, 325 Mid­land High­way, or phone Toby on 5822 5811.
