Audi A6 speculative rendering

We’ve reported of Audi’s plans to take on BMW in the fast-paced high-rider game – now we have a speculative rendering of the Audi Q6 coupe-SUV, courtesy of our friends at Automedia, to give us an idea of how the BMW X6 competitor could look when it arrives in 2016.

Having already been confirmed by Audi CEO Rupert Stadler, reports say the Audi Q6 will be a five-seat, sportier alternative to the flagship Q7, which will then be moved further upmarket. It will reportedly be based on the next-gen Audi Q5, which is due in 2015.

With styling inspired by the Paris-debuting Crosslane Coupe concept, the Audi Q6 should pack a fresh and contemporary flair currently not present in the Q7, Q5 and Q3 models. What do you think of this illustration?
