One company we've been keeping a close eye on is Audi.
That's because sometime soon we're expecting to see the all-new A4 and all-new Q7.
Both products are critical for the company going forward. Not only are they both volume products, but they're also the two models said to be ushering in a new era of styling for Audi.
In recent years, the four rings has come under some serious fire from naysayers bashing the organizations conservative approach to styling. Although models like the A7 and A5 Sportback — we don't receive in the States — have been an attempt to create a bit of differentiation in the market, the reality is a lot of the cars are very closely aligned in terms of design.
The all-new vehicles are said to break that trend with a more aggressive appearance.
One thing has us somewhat concerned though: Audi's A4 and Q7 have been pushed back not once, but TWICE due to design. So, what could be so wrong? Are they not aggressive enough? Are they too aggressive?
This has us wondering...
IF the next-gen A4 and Q7 are simply evolutions of their existing designs, what will YOU make of it? Would both cars be considered failures?
As far as we're concerned, it seems like the A4 would be best suited as a four-door coupe and the Q7 receives a more intriguing roofline a la the BMW X6, X4 and Mercedes-Benz MLC. Something tells me we'll see those variants in form of different models soon after the A4 and Q7 are crystallized.
