According to Automobile Magazine, Audi has reportedly given the production 'thumbs up' to its Roadjet concept shown at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The vehicle, however, will most likely only be sold in the European market, and not in the U.S.

Specific reasons were not given as to why American consumers won't be privy to the production version of the Roadjet, except that it apparently doesn't fit American “tastes”. Instead the Q5, which has been described as taller and more “rugged” than the Roadjet, is the more candidate for the next vehicle Audi offers in the U.S. market.

      To me it looks like an Audi version of the Chevy Malibu Maxx...and I don't mean that as an insult as I like the Maxx, but I know most people don't...

      I think GM did that already 2 years ago, when they introduced the Corvette Convertible in Geneva!

      But yes, it is stupid to introduce a car in a country where it's not supposed to be sold.

      Seriously, what were they thinking?

      1 - Introduce concept vehicle in United States
      2 - Decide to produce concept vehicle, but not sell it in the United States.

      Genius thinking, that. Maybe GM can one-up them and introduce the next Chevy Silverado in Paris.

      #4... Do you really need a seven speed DSG in a car that size? Just get the A3 S-Line quattro. I want one, but damn Audi and their pricing.
