The only Audi crossover that has the vaunted RS badge is the Q3, but that is going changing in the near future.
Speaking with Car and Driver, Audi Sport boss Stephan Winkelmann said there would be more RS-badged crossovers in the near future.
“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.”
Sources have previously said that the Q7 and upcoming Q8 will get the RS treatment. There is also the possibility of an RS Q5. One item you will not see under the hood of any RS crossover is a diesel engine.
"If I have to put money down for an investment which has to make a return worldwide, then diesel will never be the priority,” said Winkelmann.
