Audi e-Design - Electrification of the Audi look
The future is electric. With the Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron concept, Audi gives an outlook on the brand's seventh electric model. The electrification of the brand with the four rings also shapes its appearance. Audi Design becomes Audi e-Design.
The New Compass has been developed to speak a more European language, courtesy of the enhanced quality of the finishes and its advanced on board technology. It also introduces major new features that take it to an even higher level in terms of design, safety, technology and functionality. Where does its secret lie? In combining two souls of Jeep – the off-road and urban spirit – to meet the needs of customers in the C-SUV segment. Rational, factual people, they are also fascinated by the possibility of getting away from their daily routines: we call them “pragmatic dreamers”. The new model has a strong aesthetic character, enhanced by a refined and distinctive style – which remains true to the brand’s styling cues, excellent driving dynamics and more sophisticated safety and connectivity. All this crowned by the renowned Jeep 4x4 capability, a feature honed over 80 years of leadership in off-road driving. In short, whether concerned with a pragmatic need for mobility or the desire to experience exciting everyday ‘adventures’, the answer lies in the New Compass, which offers a balance between performance and emotions, rational usage and dreams of freedom and adventure. All in the name of the brand’s claim: “Go Anywhere, Do Anything”. Because, 80 years later, Jeep remains Jeep.
The appearance and standard equipment of the BMW X4 M40i and BMW X4 M40d are based on the corresponding X3 models and, like these, have typical BMW M insignia such as the specific BMW M kidney grille with chrome frame, double kidney grille slats in black high-gloss and the M logo as well as the aerodynamically optimized M exterior mirrors in high-gloss black. The rear apron with the anvil-shaped insert is fitted with air curtain panels in high-gloss black. Similar to the BMW X3 M40i and BMW X3 M40d, the free-form tailpipe trims are in black chrome with the two "teeth" and the tires.
