    mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... me like. ;)

    I'm still lovin' Audi's new grille, supremely elegant, especially in this application.

    I would've liked to have seen more plastic on the bumpers and wheelarches though to differentiate it more from the A6 Avant range, but also because of it's functionality off road.

    I quite like the grille but the rest of the car is just 'blah'

    Mum's about to give up her TT and was looking at an A4 since she likes the Audi build and quattro driving but we went to see it while I was up at Christmas and the rest of the car just doesn't say anything at all...

    but they are Auto Union... (it's an inverted AU grille) ;)

    it's a bit of a shame that MG Rover has seen fit to rip it for it's luxo 75 though.. :(

    It puts me in mind of that "ant hill mop" looking Chrysler.

    I imagine ZZTop would drive a PT Cruiser if it had rear wheel drive and fatter tyres. :)

    The audi seems to loose something as I move from the grill around to the sides.

    good for tailgating ;)

    the back has a bit of the porsche cayenne going on about it. especially in the exhausts. looks nice though.

    It shares the same platform doesn't it? The one used for the Toureg and the Cayenne?

    Nah. I don't dig it.
    Looks like it's on steroids.
    And how much does that grille cost to replace when you do some "New York parking"? :eek:

    i wonder wher they gonna out the number plate in the front ;)
    i really like the new grill but i gotta agree more plastic should have been used ...

    the rest looks like audi design as usual ... not the most fashionable but still very good

    Meh, I 'd much rather have an S6 Avant.

    But the new grille fits this car better than some of the other new Audis. And it's better than getting an SUV for sure.

    Now that sir is a very valid point... ;) I presume they're maybe considering a similar position to the new A6. I can't imagine Audi wanting a bike shaped plate like the solution Mitsubishi uses on some Lancer Evolution models.

    More plastic would have made it more purposeful as well as functional. I think they found a happy medium on the previous Allroad, and it's kind of a shame that this concept doesn't feature a similar solution.
