The versatility of Volkswagen’s MQB platform will be on display when Audi uses it as the basis for a new MPV due in 2016, Autocar reports. The article quotes Audi’s sales and marketing chief Peter Schwarzenbauer as the source and says the Audi MPV could have seating for up to seven people.
There should be no surprises with the MPV’s mechanicals. So expect Audi to employ the usual mix of front-wheel drive and quattro drivetrains with the company’s familiar engine lines.
Also worth reporting here is the suggestion the MPV range could usher in a new naming regime using the letter V. That would mean the A3, A4 and Q3, Q5 ranges, for example, could be complemented by a V3, V4 or even V5.
