    Rumorpile: Next Audi Q7 Heads Back To The Drawing Board

    August 17, 2013

    What do the Honda Civic, Chevrolet Malibu, and upcoming Audi Q7 have in common? All of them have undergone an emergency redesign.

    Motor Trend reports that Audi has ordered a emergency redesign on the next Q7. The original design was described as being "Too Brutal and Ostentatious"and was negatively received. This is possibly one of the reasons that former head of product development at Audi, Wolfgang Dürheimer was pushed out.

    The cost of this emergency redesign? $260 million and being pushed back a year.
