Next-gen Audi Q7 delayed for new design image

The future generation of the Audi Q7 has been delayed in order to get a new design as the outgoing version has been considered “too brutal and ostentatious”.

The next generation of the Audi Q7 has been already spied testing numerous times and despite reports saying that the model will hit the market this year or in 2014, it seems that fans of this model will have some waiting to do. According to the guys at Motor Trend, the next-gen Audi Q7’s production has been delayed in order to be redesigned. The premium SUV will get new looks and its front fascia will make it look closer to sedans and wagons across the lineup.

The new seven-seat Audi Q7 will share the same platform with the Volkswagen Touareg, with the Porsche Cayenne and with the future Bentley SUV, in its final production form. The Q7 and the Bentley SUV will ride on the extended-wheelbase version of the platform and the two models are expected to share some supercharged and turbodiesel engines. Additional details on the subject are limited for the moment and will be announced close to the model’s debut.
