Audi will bring a new version of the Audi Prologue Concept to the Geneva Motor Show 2015. The Audi Prologue Avant Concept will build upon the Los Angeles Auto Show 2015 concept we saw last year. Featuring four doors rather than two, it is expected to move the concept closer to a production ready vehicle. It will likely form the basis for the latest round of Audi A6, A7 and A8 updates.
With limited information available, we can show you design sketches and CAD mock ups of the final design. The Audi Prologue Avant looks a little like the Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake to our eyes. It is a shooting brake wagon sitting relatively low to the ground (although that probably has something to do with the massive wheels). With the polygonal grille and strong design lines running front to back, the Prologue Avant is unmistakably Audi-designed.
The rear features a discreet spoiler and a near identical light strip cluster together with dual exhausts. Of course, the design is pure concept for the time being but expect to see various elements, the lights, the grille and the design lines, transfer to other models in the Audi range.
The Audi Prologue Avant will most likely get the same engine as the Audi Prologue Concept we drove in Los Angeles last year. That car packed a 4.0 TFSI V8 engine borrowed from the Audi S8 with 605 hp and 750 Nm of torque. Audi coupled this with a 48 volt electric system with regenerative braking, the benefit being that it could potentially power an electronic turbo.
Inside, the Audi Prologue Avant will likely feature the same innovations. Ideas such as the bendable OLED display fitted behind the gear shifter and the 3D cockpit design which featured a multi-layered dash display. The Los Angeles concept also featured a display on the passenger side which allowed the passenger to submit route guidance, music and entertainment for the driver to review and accept. Expect to see the same for the Avant.
Whatever Audi have planned for the Prologue Avant at the Geneva Motor Show 2015, we’re sure it will be incredibly interesting. We will of course be following the show live so make sure you keep checking back for the latest news!
