Cross Cabriolet Concept Unveiled At Los Angeles Auto Show

I've always liked Audi vehicles. The Audi R10 is currently my most favorite car from the German automaker. But this post is not about the R10 but instead about the Audi Cross Cabriolet Concept unveiled by Audi at the Los Angeles Auto Show. According to WorldCarFans, the concept vehicle looks a little like "an elongated A1 convertible".

We know what crossovers are right? Crossover SUVs are said to be the fusion of SUVs and cars. The Cross Cabriolet according to Audi is a vehicle which is a cross between an SUV and a convertible. This might sound like a wild dream but they have shown that there is a way of making a "convertible SUV". This only shows that Audi is one of the major automakers which breaks the boundaries and goes to great lengths to come up with high quality vehicles like the Cross Cabriolet.

The guys at World Car Fans though pointed out that we should not expect Audi to produce Audi A1 convertibles as the Cross Cabriolet is based on the chassis of the A4 and the A5. Said concept car measures 64.2 inches in height, five inches taller than the A4 convertible.

The Cross Cabriolet is powered by a 3.0-liter TDI engine which produces about 240 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque according to Audi. This is powered by diesel which costs less than gasoline. This is not surprising as Audi has created a name for itself in the diesel revolution. The Audi R10 race car which won the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans and the American Le Mans Series runs on diesel too. As for this Cross Cabriolet, consumers will only have to wait a short time before it hits tee market.
