It’s no secret that Audi’s been seriously considering drawing a direct line between the popularity of today’s popular SUV/offroad inspired product popularity and its 1980s era rallying prowess.

That may not seem like that long ago and the freshness of the current car’s design supports this claim, but Audi’s product cadence means a mid-lifecycle refresh is just around the corner. Spy photos of a test mule confirm that deduction. Of course this is a […] More…
