The German source adds the Audi Q1 will be 3.8 meters long and will have off-road-like ground clearance and styling, but won’t be offered with all-wheel drive. As far as engines are concerned, the Q1 could sport 1.4-liter TFSI and TDI units with 90 HP, while an SQ1 should deliver as much as 231 HP.

What’s more, the Q1 could also be sold with a hybrid version, with powered to be provided by a 1.2-liter petrol engine mated to an electric motor rated at 109 HP. The Audi Q1 is said to become available for less than €20,000 in Germany.

Rumors that Audi is working on a Q1 model surfaced back in January 2012, but the Ingolstadt-headquartered manufacturer has yet to make any official statements.
