The popular manufacturer will build new model Audi Q6 2017 right from the scratch. The Germans might share its underpinnings with the existing Audi Q5. As popular Audi already is, the German automaker’s Q series is probably one of the greatest line-ups in global auto markets. With that being said, a Q6 model has never really existed and has created a hype amongst car fanatics. But all of this might be changed as Audi Q6 2017 is (fortunately) said to be in plans.
Audi Q6 2017 – Exteriorly Resembles:
There’s a high possibility that the new Audi Q6 2017 will share design cues with the Quattro Concept. This analogy hasn’t just simply come out of thin air as there is some rendered image which hints such.
According to the images, the model’s front fascia appeal obvious as Audi has flaunted its signature styling. Its grille has the same honeycomb styling as that of Audi Q5 but the inner intakes are more intricate. The headlights sitting astride to this grille also look dynamic and sharp.
Things get more interesting downwards as stylistic chunks of plastic embellish the lower fascia. All 4 wheel arches and side body edges incorporate plastic cladding which adds funkiness to some extent. The roof cascades gently towards the rear and creates a striking impression with an overhang.
The details about interior cabin are scarce as they’re no official disclosures. Meanwhile, renders hint that the cabin will be technologically adept. So much so, the driver’s gauge cluster will be fully digital with a single information display.
This Audi Q6 2017 is also reported to offer 2 primary displays in the center console. Sophisticated touch-ups are to be done with soft-touch materials on the dash and perforated leather on the seats and steering wheel.
As safety is a high concern in all Audi vehicles, the Q6 is suspected to come with an array of features like the crumple zone energy absorbing cabin, impact absorbing steering column and multi-stage airbags (with seat occupancy sensor).
Audi Q6 2017 – Powertrain Speculations:
According to what’s been disclosed at the Frankfurt Motor Show, this 2017 Audi Q6 will sport an electric powertrain. Needless to say, the electric drivetrain will consist of 3 high-output electric motors.
The primary motor will power the front axles while the remaining two will power the rear axles. These 3 motors will work together to produce a power output of more than 370 kW. The rumors also hold that the electric powertrain will be capable of delivering a driving range of more than 300 miles.
Performance wise, this model’s electric powertrain might make it up for 0 – 60 in just 4.6 seconds and top speed of 130 mph. Doing so would make this Audi Q6 favorable amongst similar models like Lexus RX, BMW i3 and Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive. An air suspension system is also in high suspicions.
Audi Q6 2017 – Price and Launch Date:
Surprisingly enough, the new 2017 Audi Q6 is suspected to come with a competitive starting price of $53,000. The dealerships might get this model by the end of this year.
