Audi Says No to RS SUV

At a time when big names in the automotive industry like Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Porsche have started adding on SUV editions to their popular vehicles, Audi has said it will not follow suit. Audi's technical chief, Stephan Reil, has recently ruled out the possibility of a RS badge on any of its SUVs or crossovers. At the moment, the SUV and crossover lineup at Audi includes the Q7 and Q5, and will soon be joined by the smaller Q3. While Audi says that there won't be an RS, there is still a chance of an S badge.
