I find it interesting that they're completely abandoned that notched DLO they've been trying with their concepts (and the i3). It looks like a normal X1 aside from the headlights. Thankfully we'll be getting something new there at least.

This looks utterly insipid.

This looks to be X3 in size but a bit longer. The rear hatch opening looks like something from audi and not BMW, maybe this is only for this round of test cars but the concept did have a wide rear hatch opening.

Indeed, wasn't a fan myself of that notched DLO and not sure if it would bring anything useful design wise. Unless we are still looking at early prototypes and the notch will come back in final prototypes.

I think that's the right size given the growth in that market and you can still have interior space of an X5, similar to the route Mercedes and Jaguar took. I have to wonder if Audi had to go larger because they couldn't get the price low enough to justify a smaller car.

I see this as being longer and lower (maybe also wider) than the X5, and SUV-coupe like, but with a back more like the X2's design, rather than the X4 or X6. I'm going by other spy-shots that were captured of the iNEXT mule being on the same auto-transport as the new X5 model, aside of the photos posted here up-thread.

For a company that has such a rigid naming scheme, I do not understand the thinking behind "iNext." What happens when they add a smaller/larger electric crossover to the lineup, which will no doubt follow this in a few years...? Audi did the same thing by naming their first electric crossover "e-tron" which makes just as little sense...

I assume (hope) it will drop the concept name in favor of a more conventional name when it comes to production. if not in this iteration then certainly in future generations once the marketing push has been done.

Fair...and here’s to hoping. Question remains with Audi though...
