The Audi Q4 is heading to production in VW’s new plant in Foshan according to Chinese media reports. Despite there being no pictures or official images of the Q4 in testing or launching.
The Q4 is being sold as a crossover coupe which will be based on the new MLB platform and will of course rival the forthcoming BMW X4 when it comes into play later this year.
