Article by Christian A., on August 13, 2013

It appears that the next-generation Audi Q7 will be delayed as the German manufacturer is planning an emergency redesign for the big SUV. According to MotorTrend, the early Q7 design was too brutal and ostentatious and was so negatively received.

MT also says that Wolfgang Durheimer a.k.a. Audi’s head of product development lost its job due to new Q7 design. The Q7 redesign will cost Audi $260 million and the delay of Q7’s launch. Regarding the new design, the Audi Q7 will get a new front end featuring company’s signature LED running lights, the new shield-shaped grille, new LED taillights as well as new crisp and clean lines.
