Audi’s wild eco-wagon

THE Audi Prologue Avant is the second concept to show off Audi’s new design direction.

Following on from the 2014 LA Show’s Prologue coupe concept, the Avant takes the same design language and blends it with a second set of doors and a rear hatch. In Audi-speak, it could easily be called a ‘Sportback’, but despite its size, it’s a strict four-seater. There’s a swathe of touchscreens inside the leather and brushed aluminium cabin, and under the bonnet is a 355kW 3.0-litre turbo-diesel hybrid drivetrain that allows 54km of zero-emission driving.
