It is almost like a comical competition between the Germans to see just who has the biggest portfolio. If you were to tell BMW that size doesn’t matter, their efforts with the X6 and 5 Series GT should shout back “we don’t care!” Audi has been vastly expanding their model range also and are now testing the water with a new concept car. Crossovers have flourished over the past few years but the four rings hope to bring to the market its first proper performance baby SUV.
This is the Audi RS Q3 Concept and it is what happens when the jacked-up A3 gets a little bit of performance love. Powered by a 2.5 litre turbocharged 5 cylinder that powers all four wheels, the RS Q3 will sprint from 0-62MPH in just 5.2 seconds. The rather butch looking machine packs 360BHP behind that menacing grill. Debuting in Beijing, Audi say it is just a concept car for now, but as always if enough interest is generated the car could hit showrooms very soon.
