Both vehicles are highly aerodynamic, with a 0.28 drag coefficient on the standard Q4 and an even lower 0.26 figure on the Sportback. The Q4 and Q4 Sportback look pretty similar in the front, with an enclosed single-frame grille, available Matrix design LED headlights with customizable daytime running light signatures, short overhangs, large wheels, and sculpted panels. Things get different in the rear of the Q4 Sportback. That model features a coupe-style roofline with a two-part window. It even gets a cool spoiler that splits the glass like an old Ford Escort Cosworth.
Audi says the Q4 models have similar proportions to the gas-powered Q5. And since the electric drivetrain allowed Audi’s engineers to eliminate the traditional center tunnel, interior space should be comparable to the Q5 as well. The rear legroom should be generous due to the EV layout but trunk space in the Q4 Sportback will be smaller than the standard Q4.
