Audi has enough models to conquer the market but it appears that the German manufacturer is planning a new crossover based on the well-known A3. According to Autonews, this new models is expected to hit the market in 2016 or 2017 and wants to take on Bmw’s planned front-wheel-drive compact crossover.

Sources confirmed the fact that engineers are already working on a concept version of the upcoming car that will have either five or seven seats. And it is known as the “elevated space vehicle”.

Although is it still unclear if the new concept car will be seen at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, we do know that Audi will use Volkswagen Group's modular MQB architecture and will built it at its headquarters in Ingolstadt. Moreover, it is also unclear if company’s new technology chief Ulrich Hackenberg will be deeply involved in its development. If built, Audi is expected to ad a sporty version of the crossover, which will wear the well-known RS badge.
