The Audi Crosslane is Audi's nod to the fact it'll be building a Q2 before long, a crossover to go below the Q3 and have a go at the Mini Paceman. But the concept had lots of tech-wizardry that won't go onto the real Q2, including a beautifully engineered and crazily costly structure of carbonfibre and aluminium. Audi doesn't do this sort of thing for fun, and quiet voices tell us it's related to the frame of Audi's upcoming BMW i3 rival.
