Audi is set to unveil its latest concept at the Geneva Motor Show, designed to preview a future styling direction for the German carmaker’s wagon range.
Called the Prologue Avant, the new concept follows on from the Prologue concept unveiled at last year’s LA Auto Show.
The Prologue was rumoured to preview a new ‘A9’ coupe model - perhaps for the Chinese market above all else and a rival to the likes of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class coupe.
Now, these official computer design images show us what the Prologue Avant will look like when the covers come off next month, and what Audi may have in store for future wagon models.
The side profile shows an ultra-low roofline and swooping rear end; perhaps suggesting that a Shooting Brake-style wagon is on the cards.
Whether this becomes the new styling line for all of Audi’s wagons or not is unclear, but the German carmaker could be planning a series of Shooting Brakes to complement its existing wagon line-up.
Themes seen on last year’s Prologue have continued on the Avant version, particularly with rear styling which shows similar tailpipes and tail lamps.
Door mirrors and the ‘diamond-cut’ headlights from the Prologue have carried over to the Avant, but the wagon gets a new alloy wheel design.
Audi has revealed nothing about the concept’s powerplant, but the carmaker’s familiar 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 is a strong possibility.
