The next-gen Audi Q7 has been under test for a while and the revised model is slated to hit the market soon. It is rumoured that the designers of the SUV are reworking the styling as the company’s new head of R&D Ulrich Hackenberg was reportedly not pleased with the design.
If these rumours are true, this might be the second time that Audi has gone back to the drawing board during the development phase. The company’s ex-design boss Wolfgang Egger was the first to order changes to the original concept.
An automotive website has spy pictures of a Q7 test mule and it is difficult to ascertain if this is the revised or the old design. The vehicle is a little less complicated as the Q7 will be underpinned by VW Group's MLB modular platform to be commonly used between the Porsche Cayenne and the VW Touareg.
The new model will also shed some weight to the tune of over 300 kgs over its predecessors. The new model will get a V6 and V8 unit alongwith an e-tron hybrid and a four-cylinder diesel unit.
