Audi offered up a hint of its future when it lifted the wraps off the striking Prologue concept at the L.A. Auto Show last autumn, then followed up with a second take at the Geneva Motor Show last month in the form of the Prologue Avant. A third iteration will make its debut at Auto Shanghai next week, and like the two earlier concepts, it is expected to offer a glimpse of the future for the German luxury brand.
Dubbed the Audi Prologue Allroad, it is meant to show how the maker’s current soft-roader is set to evolve. And that’s not just from a design standpoint. The new model also gets a 724-horsepower plug-in hybrid drivetrain, and a wide variety of high-tech safety, comfort and convenience features.
Calling it, “a car combining the comfort and dynamics of the luxury class with maximum variability and masterful off-road capability,” Audi says the Prologue Allroad concept “reflects a fresh interpretation of the typical Allroad themes, providing a clear glimpse into the brand’s design future. The design of the Audi Prologue Allroad accentuates the elegance and uniqueness of the Allroad concept.” (more…)
