Audi joins the SUV trail: Q7
« on: February 04, 2005, 11:09:17 pm »
The large sport utility vehicle (SUV) that is to be built by the Audi brand will bear the name Q7. This announcement was made at the Paris Motor Show by Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG. "The letter Q denotes a new type family within our company, alongside A, S and RS. The 7 indicates that it is positioned between the A6 and A8," explained Prof. Winterkorn.

The Q7 will make its market debut at the start of 2006. The production version will be based on the Pikes Peak quattro concept study that Audi had unveiled at the 2003 Detroit Motor Show. In common with the latter, the five-door, seven-seater Q7 will combine the qualities of a fully-fledged off-road vehicle with the typical dynamism of an Audi high-performance sports saloon. The Audi SUV will moreover offer an amount of space that sets new standards in its class.

More than likely, it was only a matter of time before Audi used it.

LOL, too true. At least the VW, Audi & Porsche won't get stuck on a croquet lawn like the BMW X5 and Merc ML.
