Audi Q4 e-tron (2021-present): dimensions and boot space

Find out everything you need to know about the dimensions and boot size of the Audi Q4 e-tron and Q4 Sportback e-tron

The Audi Q4 e-tron and its nearly-identical sister car, the Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron, are electric family cars that offer up to around 300 miles of range per charge, a comfortable driving experience and excellent interior quality. Both models use the same underlying technology, but we’ve highlighted the differences between the two below.

The Sportback model has a more sloped rear roofline than the normal Q4 e-tron, so the dimensions are slightly different inside and out. This model costs more to buy, but as it’s not really any more practical we’d stick to the standard version to save some cash.

There are several different versions to consider. The entry-level ‘35’ models have a smaller battery capable of just over 200 miles of range per charge, but the ‘40’ and high-performance ‘50’ versions use a larger battery to achieve around 300 miles of driving range from a single charge.

The Q4 e-tron rivals the Volkswagen ID.4 and Skoda Enyaq, both of which share these batteries as the brands are all part of the same parent company. Other rivals that are unrelated include the BMW iX3 and Mercedes EQA, which are family SUVs with similar electric power and range.

Read on to find out everything you need to know about the dimensions of the Audi Q4 e-tron and Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron, including boot space, towing capacity and weight figures for both versions.

Audi Q4 e-tron dimensions

The Audi Q4 e-tron and Q4 Sportback e-tron are exactly the same length and width, down to the millimetre, at 4.6m long and 1.9m wide (with the mirrors folded). There’s a slight difference in height thanks to the different roof designs, though; the normal model is just under 20mm taller, though both are still 1.6m high when rounded-down.

Both models are practical - there’s a good amount of legroom in the back and headroom is good even for adults. This goes for both versions, despite the lower roofline in the Sportback model, as the car is quite tall in the first place. There’s a bit more light in the normal model because the window area is larger, so it feels more spacious, however.

Audi Q4 e-tron boot space

The Audi Q4 e-tron has 520 litres of boot space, which puts it slightly ahead of one of its key rivals. The BMW iX3 has 510 litres, and both this and the Audi are very roomy. It’s even better news for the Sportback, which has 535 litres. However, in the real world, there’s not a huge amount of difference between them all - they’re all really big and practical and far more practical in boot terms than the 340 litres you get in the Mercedes EQA.

Fold down the seats in the standard Q4 e-tron and there’s 1,490 litres available in total. That’s smaller than the 1,560 litres you get in the BMW iX3 but quite a bit more than the EQA’s 1,320-litre maximum luggage space. The Sportback model has 1,460 litres in total, which is a bit less than in the normal version because of the more sloped roofline.

Audi Q4 e-tron towing capacity

Some electric cars aren’t even rated for towing, but the Q4 e-tron and its Sportback sibling can both tow up to 1,200kg in top-spec ‘50 quattro’ four-wheel-drive form. Lesser models can tow 1,000kg, so the difference isn’t too big between the versions.

Towing with an electric car isn’t ideal, though. Not only are the rated towing weights pretty low for this type of car, but towing anything near that kind of weight will severely reduce the range available from the batteries. If you’re looking for a tow car then, the Audi Q4 e-tron probably isn’t the best option.

Audi Q4 e-tron weight

To find out how heavy a car is on the road, the official kerbweight figure tells you the weight of a car with fluids included, plus a 75kg driver. The Audi Q4 e-tron range weighs from nearly 1,900kg to more than 2,100kg, and the Sportback model is about 5kg heavier like-for-like.

To put this into context, a typical small family car with a petrol engine will weigh around 1,400kg. This means that the Q4 e-tron is incredibly heavy, which means tyres and brakes are likely to wear faster. However this isn’t uncommon for electric cars - all the Audi’s rivals are about as heavy, because the batteries are very bulky, especially in models with larger battery packs fitted.

Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron1,895 - 2,140kg
