Audi is developing a new compact SUV to take a place below the Q7 in the company's model range. Dubbed Q5, the newcomer is going to be a direct competitor against BMW's X3 and the Acura RDX. The Q5 rides on a platform featuring elements from the next A4 and A6. In order to be able to use V-8 engines, which are considered essential for the U.S. market, the engines in this SUV will be mounted lengthwise, not transversely.

Our computer illustration of the Q5 is shown here with original photos of the prototype captured during tests at the Nürburgring. The Q5 is expected to go on sale early in 2008.

I agree, and all things considered the Q7 really isn't that big.

Compared to other SUVs in its class, and the beasts in the classes above it. I agree, the Q7 is a good size, which is why I may be getting one.

the 2007 BMW X5 is sexy ....

the x3 is ugly and so is the rdx

I think 07 X5 > q7 but teh q5 > x5

also the q5 kinda looks like that new mercedes minivan
