With the Q7 doing pretty well for Audi dealers, it shouldn't come as a big surprise that the automaker's working on another SUV to go up against BMW's smaller X3. Here we offer spy shots of that upcoming model, to be dubbed Q5 when it hits showrooms in early 2008. Hans Lehmann over at Hidden Image speculates that this model appears to be sitting on a platform using parts from both the A4 and A6, making the Q5 name at least sensible.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is taking a second look at Audi A6-family models. Last March, the agency recalled some 173,000 A6, S6, and Allroad models after reports of dashboard fires, but it has since heard of more incidents, and is thus revisiting the issue.
