It's gonna be one expensive ID.4
I am in the same boat as you. I do enough outdoor actives in all different types of weather and use my vehicles to carry around bigger items a few times a year. The Q4 looks like it will be very good just not sure if it is worth the extra money and being worried about damaging the interior.Having had Audi's for over a decade prior I'm sure the Q4 will be very nice, especially its interior appointments which they do very well.
But I was unwilling to pay the premium this go-around especially as I'm, again, more focused on using utility rather than just having a utility.
The ID.4 is actually better than I anticipated and just right for me.

My reservation was AWD Pro, not S. (I hate the panoramic sunroofs that are all too common!) My salesperson has shared the info that is available to dealers so far, which isn't much more than what has been made available to the public so far. They have not yet received the order guides, so pricing and what is in each of the trim levels for the US is still up in the air. Sales people can schedule their sales training in late May and early June, so he expects the order guide to be out just before that. From the Audi marketing approach, and other vehicle introductions, he is almost certain that the quattro (AWD) will be available in the US ahead of the RWD and estimates the base price (Premium trim) would around $48K. Premium trim should be similar content to the Pro, but with Audi finishes - best recommendation is to compare the included content on the Q5 at all 3 trims. The AR/Heads-up display will likely be standard only in the Prestige, but may be an option or part of a package available in the lower trims. I'm trying to only post confirmed information, so note that that is a reasonable good educated guess only.@b5s4,
Your reservation was for the Pro AWD or the Pro S AWD?
I am very much interested in the Q4 too and have a reservation for the Pro AWD. Just not sure how much more the Q4 AWD will be over the Pro AWD.
Really wished they had given pricing and trim level details last week. Test drove the ID.4 for a 2nd time on Friday and saw the ID.4 Pro in Moonstone Gray on Saturday.
Also hope Audi does what VW and Ford did with a tour of their EVs last year.
I will be shocked if that is the case. The Q4's are coming off the same line as ID.4, and as far as we know no AWD cars are being built yet. My guess is RWD late 2021 with AWD Q1 2022. I have an ID.4 reservation that I'll keep open until we know... he is almost certain that the quattro (AWD) will be available in the US ahead of the RWD and estimates the base price (Premium trim) would around $48K.
Based on your argument, I would have been waiting equally as long for an AWD ID.4, which is also currently showing earliest deliveries in Q4, consistent with the first USA availability of the Q4, I have a less difficulty believing the Q4 will arrive with Quattro first. I'll take a nickel wager with you on that (and I'm already wagering to that effect with myself by cancelling my ID.4 reservation!). As to materials and design, I was focused much more on the cabin, where the overall layout, seat fabrics and colors, use of hard buttons has much more appeal (to me). I'm sure that much of the mechanicals and exterior parts will be shared. Surprisingly, however, I'd seen at least some indications that the braking system would be from the Audi parts bin rather than shared.I will be shocked if that is the case.

Concerning Q4/ID.4 materials differences, I watched the Autegefuhl preview a couple of days ago and was a bit surprised by how similar certain pieces are: no frunk, no struts for the front hood, charging door is identical with the same dangly cover for the DC plug. And shockingly the plastics for the rear doors are hard like the ID.4. Not cool seeing them cheating out to such a degree. I hope everything else is up to Audi standards.
Well the id.4 gtx is supposed to start up soon. I don't know if that means you can order one or they are shipping. EU is ahead in timeline though so I wouldn't be shocked to see them get the AWD ID.4 ahead of the US. Considering there is no info on US preorder at all yet I'd be surprised if any of them get here before q122.I will be shocked if that is the case.
