Emergency Redesign Delays Next-Gen Audi Q7

Spy Shots

Initial “brutal” design has been scrapped in favor of something quickly thrown together.

The original design of the next generation Audi Q7 has been so badly received it is getting an emergency redesign. And these pixelated spy shots reveal what changes are in store for the SUV that was described as “too brutal and ostentatious” according to Motor Trend. The redesign is going to cost Audi around $260 million, while the launch of the Q7 will invariably be delayed.

Despite the poor quality of the shots we can see Audi’s new shield-shaped grille and signature LED running lights up front and design cues at the back in line with the rest of the Audi range. When the all-new Audi Q7 debuts, it will come with a 400 kg drop in weight as well as a selection of V6 units. The new platform will be shared with next generation VW Touareg, Porsche Cayenne upcoming Bentley SUV.
