Debut delayed by several months, but it looks like it’s getting there.
After delaying the launch of the next generation of its (current) largest SUV, the Q7, by several months due to an apparently too-intense design, Audi is now testing the final version of the car in Europe. Sharing its platform with several corporate cousins like the VW Touareg, Porsche Cayenne and the upcoming Bentley SUV, the next-generation Q7 is expected to hit the market in early or mid-2015, offering a wide range of engines, including several diesel options (at least in Europe).
The upcoming model should be approximately the same size as the outgoing generation, but is expected to lose almost 900 lbs of weight in order to increase performance and efficiency. The spied Q7 is still heavily camouflaged and its front and rear lights seem to be fake. Expect more details in the upcoming months.
