In a surprise move, Audi snuck out the first official photograph of the all-new Audi Q7 SUV in the form of wallpapers for its customers on a promotional website. As you can see, this production Q7 bears more than a passing resemblance to the Pikes Peak quattro concept car that was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit back in 2003.

That looks very nice. I especially like the front end. Is this debuting at Geneva 05?

A big luxury SUV....wow, that's an untapped market.

Although it looks like you are being sarcastic it is important for Audi to put one out to compete with BMW, Acura, Infiniti, Merc, and Lexus. They all have SUVs and are coming out with more models and some are already on 2nd revisions. I think Audi is late and it will cost them but it looks nice and should sell well.

Re: Audi: Audi Q7 SUV Photo Breaks Cover on Company Microsite ([email protected])

make it about the size of an a6 avant (or just slightly larger), and offer a manual, and it might be interesting

That is what people said about the XC90 when it first came out as well, but it is now the best selling European luxury SUV. It will be interesting to see how well the Q7 sells.

I once had extra respect for Audi, because of their preference for building beautiful wagons rather than far less practical SUVs. I'm dissapointed to see those days are over.

Agreed. I loved Audi's focus on their A4 and A6 (and of course, S4) avants. Let's hope that focus remains after this SUV starts selling like crazy.

The fact is the only segment of the SUV segment (not cross-over) that is growing is that of luxury SUV's.

I don't see what the big deal is with everyone. We all knew it was only a matter of time.
The thing that I really like, is that it appears that Audi will produce a second generation Allroad in addition to the Q7 and Q5. And that is a good thing, because as a family that owns an Allroad, we can truly say we love it. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Well they said the same thing about VWs Touareg, it was supposedly late to the party...but it's sold just fine...
I wonder which version is going to provide more sport, the Pikes Peak or the Cayenne?
