not bad...but a bit too wagonish for a SUV...so it might not sell as good :?

with never ending rises in gas prices, i'm surprised you'd still consider an SUV :)

I completely agree with you on the gas prices, and I never said I'd buy one, it's just a great machine. If I had the choice, I get an S4 Avant for utility. :)

I really like the interior too! But all that SUV thing I think, is diminishing. I think they are a bit late now everybody already has a Touareg, a Cayenne or an X5

SUVs are high-profit vehicles. Don't ever let anyone tell you that a particular SUV was developed for any other reason, unless it's Jeep or Land Rover. And yes, I'm omitting HUMMER for a reason.

Doesn't look bad. Not at all, in fact.
But indeed, I wouldn't like to pay the fuel for such a thing in two years.

They have their own diesel, a 4.2 litre V8. Makes 321BHP, 20 more than the V10 I believe, and 479lb ft of torque from 1,600 and 3,500rpm. Torque is down what, 30lb ft from the V10 :)

Is that the one that Clarkson tested which had very good fuel economy? It was in the audi A8 if I remember well.

This thing will be equipped with the RS6's 5.5L 550 bhp V10 sometime down the road, too. No worries about power. ;)

Is it bliss? Ignorance, I mean.

Maybe (read "For sure...")

It is based on the same platform that is used in the Cayenne and Touareg, slightly enlarged and removed of some offroad gizmos (diff-locks and such). So, more road-biased. And more beautiful.

Is it getting a new 5.2 litre V8 as well? I thought I read somewhere that that was the case, I can't find the article now... :unsure:
