A design with dynamic elegance and the latest high end technologies: The Audi prologue Avant show car with its stretched roof which the brand is presenting at the Geneva Motor Show gives a look into the future – with the new and emotion filled design language that Audi has initiated with its study in the coupé, the prologue.

Audi Prologue AvantIn November 2014 at the Los Angeles Motorshow, Audi presented the Audi prologue concept car, giving a look to the brand’s future design language. Only four months later, the premium manufacturer is showing a variant of its visionary concept at the Geneva Motor Show. The Audi prologue Avant combines dynamics, form and function in a perfect synthesis. With a length of 5.11 meters (16.8 ft) and a width of 1.97 meters (6.5 ft), the five-door car with its pioneering body concept positions itself clearly in the luxury class. At the same time, it offers unmistakeable sportiness and variability. Technology is becoming an experience, both outside and inside: The driver and up to three passengers can enjoy a luxurious interior and are digitally connected thanks to a state‑of‑the‑art infotainment architecture and connect technology.

Which means a 0-62mph time of just 5.1 seconds, and limited top speed of 155mph. Should you wish to run it purely on electric mode, Audi is predicting a range of around 33.6 miles. Underneath there’s also adaptive air suspension, lightweight wishbones, 20 inch ceramic brake discs and four-wheel-steering.

Audi prologue AvantInside it’s all Luxury with leather and Alcantara, a three-display touchscreen dash that forms one singular whole across the front, while at the back there are a pair of detachable OLED displays in the rear headrests. There’s a display on the centre tunnel too for things like air con and infotainment, and front and rear passengers can exchange info. It also has the newly designed flat shift‑by‑wire selector lever for the eight-speed tiptronic which is smoothly integrated in the center console.
