Audi A9 Will be Based on Next-Generation Q7

According to recent reports, the Audi A9 flagship sedan model is in the works and the German automaker is now aiming for a 2016 launch.

The all-new A9 will be built on the same platform underpinning the next-generation Q7 SUV. And though that may seem to be a quirky choice, the brand is reportedly positioning the range-topping sedan like an Allroad model with an increased ride height and underbody stainless steel skid plates.

Details are light on the A9, but it’ll pack a lot of new-generation technologies that will help the vehicle drive autonomously as well as park itself.
