Audi Prologue Avant Concept Teased Ahead of Geneva Show

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 2/13/2015 Jake Holmes

Audi plans to show a new version of its Prologue concept next month at the 2015 Geneva auto show. Compared to the two-door Audi Prologue coupe concept shown at the 2014 Los Angeles auto show in November, the new Prologue Avant concept shows how the striking car's design language could be translated onto a racy shooting brake wagon.

Aside from its elongated body and additional doors, the Audi Prologue Avant concept closely follows the look of the earlier car. A wide polygonal grille and angular air intakes define the car's front end, with a strong character line running the length of the Prologue to the narrow, wraparound taillights. A low roofline with short windows gives a "chopped" look, while large, show-car wheels further the impression that the car hunkers close to the ground. The rear windshield is topped by a spoiler, and slopes down toward the trunk at a nearly 45-degree angle. The Audi Prologue Avant concept also hews closely to its progenitor inside the cabin. There are almost no physical buttons, with several large touchscreens filling the dashboard, center stack, and instrument cluster. A tall, wide console runs the length of the interior.

Audi previously announced that the Prologue concept shows the new design language that will debut on the next A6, A7, and A8. The Prologue is, "The essence of all three cars. That means all the elements you see in the show car will go into production," Audi design head Marc Lichte told us in November.

Given the wagon design of this model, we suspect the Audi Prologue Avant concept most closely hints at the shape of the future A7 four-door coupe and A6 Avant. Come back next month for more photos and details when the Audi Prologue Avant concept debuts at the Geneva auto show.
