One of the great mysteries in the automotive space right now is the all-new Audi Q7.

Though it's decidedly not the most interesting product on the market, the current-gen model is completely outdated by modern standards and it's a hefty whale of an sport-utility vehicle.

While we've heard impressive things about the next-gen Q7, it's been spending a helluva long time in development. The last we heard, Audi's design chief scrapped it for the SECOND time. That all-new grille is creating some waves already, ain't it?

If rumors are true, the next-gen Q7 should lose a tremendous amount of weight — we've heard anywhere from 400-700 pounds — and be the vehicle that ushers in the four rings' all-new design direction. This and the upcoming A4 will feature the newly designed front grille that will provide all-new Audis with their road presence.

In the shots we see here it appears that there are two variants being tested. One has a smaller set of wheels and it appears the front valence features smaller intakes flanking the main grille. One could assume this would be a forced induction six-cylinder-powered vehicle. The other variant has blacked out, cross-spoke alloys that are much bigger in diameter and it has much larger air intakes flanking the main grille. Two educated guesses on this one: either this is an S-Line version or, possibly a force-fed V8 variant of the up and comer.

If you've got a good eye, you'll also note that the in-dash infotainment display will change to an ultra-thin panel that pops up a la the all-new A3's interior.

Unfortunately, nothing else new has been revealed as Audi continues to keep this vehicle well camouflaged.
