The Audi Q6 has made its debut, with SAIC — which produces the Chinese market-only SUV — billing the new Q as a “Roadjet”. 


Measuring 5 099 mm bow to stern, 2 014 mm in width, 1 784 mm in height and 2 980 mm between the fore and aft axles, the SAIC-built Audi SUV — based on the Volkswagen Group’s familiar MQB platform — is available with a six or seven seating arrangement. Bar the wheelbase, the Q6’s exterior dimensions are slightly larger than that of its Q7 sibling. 

The exterior features a large single-frame grille, replete with chrome detailing. This item is flanked by a duo of LED headlamps, incorporating LED daytime-running lights. ‘Round back, an LED light bar spans the tailgate, linking the rear LED lamps. 


The leather-trimmed interior is equipped with Audi’s 12.3-inch digital instrument binnacle. 10.1- and 8.6-inch touch-enabled displays control the infotainment and climate control systems, respectively. Tunes are relayed through 14 speakers via a Bang & Olufson sound system. Ambient lighting is present, too. 

The Q6 is available with a duo of petrol engines. Each option is coupled with an automatic transmission, which directs power and torque to the front and rear wheels, measuring 21 inches here. The first powertrain is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder unit producing 195 kW and 400 Nm. The second is a 2.5-litre six-pot producing 220 kW and 500 Nm.
