Enter Steppenwolf

Steppenwolf is ready to follow in the footsteps of the Audi TT and A2 by becoming the latest Audi concept vehicle to make its way into full production. Bracketed as a “study for on-road and demanding off-road” use, Steppenwolf shows how Audi development engineers visualise a high-performance all-rounder for the compact class.

Powered by Audi's 3.2-litre V6 delivering 225bhp, Steppenwolf makes full use of Audi's quattro expertise and boasts a unique four-level air suspension with an adjustment range of 60mm.

Many of the constituent parts of the so-called “project” are already in use on existing Audi models. It has also been constructed on the same platform as that used for the TT and A3.

A four-seater with a mean and meaty look to it, Steppenwolf could be loitering on a street corner in the UK within two years.

An Audi insider said: “The TT and A2 concepts made their way into production basically unchanged. Steppenwolf is unlikely to break the habit.”
