Smaller Small Ute for Audi?

This image was lost some time after publication.

Reportedly, the Audis are still toying with the idea of a Q3, somewhat reminiscent of the magic carpet ride of the Steppenwolf concept of six years ago. While the new, mostly-decided-upon Q5, based on the A4 platform will fight the BMW X3, the Q3 would aim below that belt at decently-heeled cute-ute buyers; think A3 types who want a bit more butchness to mount their ski rack on. We're not quite sure if this move makes sense yet or not. But then again, neither does Audi.
