Automobile manufacturer Audi has unveiled its latest SUV on the world stage.
The company has espoused the environmental credentials of the Cross Cabriolet Quattro SUV, singling out its diesel engine which it has stated is the cleanest of its type in the world.
In addition, the vehicle can reach 62 mph from a standing start in 7.2 seconds and can hit a top speed of 149 mph.
Furthermore, its adaptive Audi drive select system comes with a built-in efficiency feature that the firm has stated reduces fuel consumption by close to a fifth.
"Combining the sun worshipping potential of a classic cabriolet with the mountain-scaling agility of a quattro-equipped ‘off-roader’, the Cross Cabriolet quattro could form the basis of a future SUV model from Audi," commented the firm.
Environmental issues have been forefronted in the media over the last two years, with Live Earth organiser Al Gore recently picking up a Nobel Peace Prize.
