New Audi models coming in 2023
New Audi Q8 and SQ8
Audi’s sleek and sporty-looking coupe-SUV has been given a mid-life update for 2023. The Q8 and SQ8 have been given mild styling tweaks, as well as some new interior technology.
You’ll have to look pretty hard to spot the styling changes over the old car, but they include tweaked headlights and a revised grille. The infotainment system has also been upgraded to include integrated apps like Amazon Music and Spotify.
The SQ8 retains its 4.0-litre V8 engine and it still has 507hp, while the standard car has a selection of 3.0-litre V6 engines. Expect to see the updated Audi Q8 on the road later this year.
New Audi Q6 e-tron
Wraps will be taken off the new Audi Q6 e-tron later this year, and the final design was teased in May. It’ll be the first car based on the new Platform Premium Electric, a collection of EV parts which will also underpin the new Porsche Macan EV.
This means it has a 100kWh battery, which may yield up to 400 miles of range. The Q6 e-tron could also has a dual-motor setup with all-wheel-drive and up to 476hp.
These camouflaged images reveal a sleek set of headlights, as well as a blanked-off front grille. The front end of this car was leaked in spy shots last year, which showed a silver grille similar to the one on the Audi Q4 e-tron, while it will also come with OLED headlights with pixel-like elements.

New Audi S5
Audi is shaking things up within its range of internal combustion engine models. The replacement for the A4 is actually going take the name A5, while the all-electric version will be called the A4 e-tron.
Expect to see a similar range of petrol and diesel engines to the current A4, as well as some plug-in hybrid variants. The 2.9-litre non-hybrid V6 in the current RS4 is likely to get the chop though, possibly in favour of a new electrified setup.
This new A5 is likely to go on sale later in 2023, after being revealed as early as the summer. You can expect to see the electric A4 e-tron later in 2024.
New Audi A3
A facelifted version of the Audi A3 has been spotted testing. It’s under cover for now, however it looks as though changes to this premium hatchback will be subtle.
There appears to be a new grille up front, with a horizontal bar splitting it in two. The front and rear bumpers are likely to be changed as well, as will the LED light signatures.
Expect to see the new Audi A3 revealed later this year, with sales starting soon after.
New Audi RS3
The hot Audi RS3 is also due for a facelift, and it’ll get similar styling upgrades to the standard A3.
You can see the new, slightly wider grille at the front, and the Audi badge has been moved up a bit as well.
Power is expected to remain the same, at 400hp and 500Nm of torque from a 2.5-litre five-cylinder engine. Expect to see this new car debut in early 2024.
New Audi RS6 Avant
An updated version of the Audi RS6 Avant has been spotted testing, and it’s likely to go on sale towards the end of the year ahead of the new A6 e-tron.
It will be based on the Audi RS6 Performance, meaning it’ll use a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8. Power may be upped though from 630hp to around 650hp.
Styling-wise, the main changes here are the massive rear wing and the new vents in the wings. The alloy wheels are from the RS6 Performance, and there may be some other visual tweaks as well.
New Audi Q7
The Q8 isn’t the only SUV getting an update, the Audi Q7 is also in line for a facelift. The current spy shots suggest this car will get minor styling tweaks, as well as similar engine options to the Audi Q8. You may also see the plug-in hybrid make a comeback.
The Audi SQ7 will also keep the same 4.0-litre V8 as the current car, and you can expect to see an official reveal by the end of 2023.
New Audi models coming in 2024
New Audi A6 e-tron
It was a couple of years ago that you first saw the new Audi A6 e-tron concept, and you’ll have to wait until early 2024 to see the production car go on sale.
The styling will be a complete departure from today’s Audi A6 saloon. There are ultra-thin LED lights at the front and rear making it look more futuristic, and you can even use the headlights as projectors to play video games.
The new car will come with a 100kWh battery giving it as much as 430 miles of range, and it could have up to 476hp from two electric motors.
New Audi A6 Avant e-tron
If you fancy the look of the A6 e-tron, but crave the practicality of a wagon body, the A6 Avant e-tron is also coming soon. This estate model is expected shortly after the saloon.
The A6 Avant e-tron has been spotted testing for the first time, and even under all that camouflage you can see that it’ll retain the styling of the concept. It may be slightly toned-down, however that light bar is hiding under the wrap and it still has a large roof spoiler.
This new EV is also expected to be fitted with a 100kWh battery which should be good for 435 miles of range, and the A6 Avant e-tron will spawn an all new RS model further down the line.
New Audi Q5
Photos of the new, heavily camouflaged Audi Q5 emerged late last year, and it looks like it’ll retain a similar look to the current car. It’ll get all new bumpers though, as well as a huge grille and slim LED lights.
Like the forthcoming Audi A4, the new Q5 will be available with a range of petrol and plug-in hybrid engines, and possibly some diesel engines. There are no plans for an all-electric Q5 at this point.
Expect to see the new Audi Q5 later this year, with sales starting in early 2024
New Audi models coming in 2025
New Audi Q3
The new Audi Q3 may be one of the last new Audis to be revealed with a petrol engine under the bonnet. The brand’s baby SUV has been spotted testing, and it looks like it’ll share styling cues with the Audi Q4 e-tron.
It may be a petrol model, but don’t expect to see any new engines debut in the Q3. Audi is unlikely to be developing new engines with a ban on internal combustion looming, so this new SUV will probably have the same range of 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre engines as the current car.
There are no shots of this car’s interior just yet, however it’s likely to share parts with the Audi Q6 e-tron. Expect to see a similar curved infotainment screen and swoopy dashboard design.
New Audi RS6 Avant e-tron
The takeover of EVs in Audi’s range doesn’t mean the death of fast RS cars, but it could spell the end of non-hybrid 2.9-litre V6s and 4.0-litre V8s.
The new Audi RS6 Avant e-tron is likely to be the first of these high-performance electric cars, and these exclusive renders give you a peek at what it may look like. Expect it to get more aggressive-looking bumpers than the A6 Avant e-tron, as well as a lowered ride height.
It could have almost 800hp and 1,000Nm of torque but don’t expect to see this car revealed until well into 2025.
New Audi Grand Sphere – A8 replacement
The Audi Grand Sphere concept gives you an idea of what the next Audi A8 will look like. It’s sporting a sleeker, more coupe-esque shape than the current car, and it’s crammed with clever technology.
This luxury saloon could pack up to 720hp, get up to 470 miles of range and come with level four self-driving systems. This means it can drive itself in most (but not all) situations with human supervision.
It’s unlikely that this technology will be ready for a good few years, but you can expect this new saloon to get some of the most advanced driver assistance tech ever when it goes on sale after 2025.
New Audi Sky Sphere
The Audi Sky Sphere concept was revealed back in 2021, and this super-futuristic roadster is packing some very clever features.
For starters, it can extend its wheelbase to aid high-speed stability, as well as getting the same autonomous driving tech as the Grand Sphere.
Don’t get your wallets out just yet though – this new drop-top is unlikely to make production, at least not in its current state.
New Audi Active Sphere
The Audi Active Sphere is the latest in the lineup of Sphere concepts, and it’s a jacked-up coupe designed for going off-road. It looks a bit like an Audi RS7, however it’s closer to the Audi Q8 in size.
The rear end can convert into a pickup bed by folding the window up over the roof, with space to carry electric bikes, and there’s even a ski rack which folds out of the roof.
The Active Sphere gets a 100kWh battery which Audi claims will give it a range of “well over” 372 miles. As for performance, it has dual motors which produce 442hp and 720Nm of torque, enough to accelerate from 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds.
