The Audi Cross Cabriolet quattro is a concept car that combines the all-round qualities of a fully-fledged SUV with that of a dynamic soft-top convertible. The concept vehicle’s design is classic, elegant, powerful and sporty.
Exterior design of the Audi Cross Cabriolet Quattro:
The car creates remarkable effects, regardless of whether the top is covered or in convertible mode. All combined without compromise are classic Audi Cabriolet hallmarks, such as the presence of an SUV, the dynamic lines of a sports car, aluminum A-pillar surface and the elegant fabric hood.
The Audi Cross Cabriolet Quattro concept vehicle is very sporty and has clearly-defined lines. To maintain optimal weight balance, the longitudinally-mounted engine is placed down the center-line of the car. It features a basic drivetrain and chassis, derived from those of the Audi A4 and Audi A5 models, measuring 4.62 m in length and 1.91 m across. But the similarities end right there! The Cross Cabriolet Quattro has an SUV-style height of 1.63 m that makes it to captivate onlookers. A sporty silhouette is created by the dynamic lines of the prototype. The pronounced styling of the wheel arches combines with the large 21-inch wheels and 265/35 R21 tires to enhance that positive effect.
The concept car is equipped with Audi’s innovative lighting technology. It flaunts electronically-controlled swivel-cornering lights and all-LED headlights that emit the characteristic strip of daytime-running lights.
Innovative hood system – the concept uses a fabric hood which has become the trademark of all Audi’s open-top designs. The hood automatically lowers itself at the touch of a button in a Z-fold behind the rear seats in only seventeen seconds. Converged at the short-stepped boot lid are the convertible design and SUV functionality. When it’s closed, it becomes a continuation of the hood’s coupé line. On the other hand, it lifts high enough when open, with the glass rear window automatically lifting simultaneously, to yield a surprisingly-large space.
