Audi Sport boss Stephan Winkelmann says that Audi is eager to expand its range of RS-badged models and this will include a number of RS SUVs.
During an interview at the press launch of the new RS3 Sedan he told Car and Driver that he is aware of Audi Sport’s lack of an extensive SUV range and confirmed the German marque’s plan to expand it.
“We don’t have a big lineup. The right cars means having them in segments that are growing, and also segments that are equally distributed in the regions of the world. Therefore a CUV shift is due; we are working on it, and you will see it coming.”
So far the Audi Q3 is the only SUV to receive a RS variant and according to current reports, the two most likely candidates to join the family will be a high-performance Q7 and an RS version of the upcoming Q8. These would rival SUVs like the Mercedes-AMG GLE63 and the BMW X5M and X6M.
