Audi released a batch of sketches previewing its new two-door concept for a compact crossover. The world premiere is expected to be at next month's Detroit Motor Show.

The automaker did not specifically mention the Q1 in the concept release though.

"The show car is a systematic development of the Audi design language," said the brand with the four rings in a statement, adding that, "It combines a host of visual elements from future models with the Audi-typical allroad concept and independent 'Shooting Brake' body style."

The concept measures 4,200mm or 165.4 inches in length and is a three-door study that's 185mm or 7.2 inches shorter than the Q3 compact crossover.
