Audi Q9 Spied on the Nürburgring

Audi's largest SUV ever will be sold in China and probably North America


  • The Audi Q9 will sit higher than the Q7 and Q8 in Audi’s range

  • It is a big luxury SUV

  • It will be sold in China and most likely in North America, possibly as soon as 2022

A new Audi model was recently spied on the Nürburgring, and it will probably come to North America soon.

Indeed, the large SUV will most likely be named Q9 since it will be bigger and more luxurious than the Q7 and Q8 models.

From what can be seen of the camouflaged vehicle, the Q9 will adopt the same styling language already seen on the other SUVs in the brands portfolio.

Up front, the grille seems very large, which is in keeping with the proportions of the vehicle and there appears to be two vents beside it, below the headlamps.

Not much can be said about the lighting equipment, since Audi tends to use placeholder items when it conducts preproduction tests in public.

The proportions of the rear recall those of the Q7 and its size hint at the presence of a third row, which could be removed in the higher trim models to increase the second-row passenger’s space, like the Range Rover SV.

No details are known about the mechanical elements that will power the Q9, but since Audi is pursuing the electrification of its models, it is likely a hybrid system will take place under the hood.

The prototype that was seen on the track was wearing the camouflage normally used by Audi on its models destined to be sold in China, which gives an idea as to what its primary market will be, but it is very likely to reach North America as well, possibly as soon as 2022.
