Audi and VW: New vehicles for the US

VW Golf
AutoWeek has a nice table with which vehicles the European brands will target the US market in future. And of course our favorite brands Audi and Volkswagen are also mentioned.
But can you believe: they put the Audi models under the Aston Martin brand! Shame on you!!!
For example, Audi has ended the internal debate about whether an SUV would taint its image. The automaker will proceed with two vehicles: the full-sized Q7 with three rows of seats and the smaller Q5. Sales of the Q7 will begin in the United States.

VW will add a mid-sized SUV, and a seven-passenger minivan is being developed primarily for the United States. Additionally, a premium four-door model with coupe-like styling resembling the Mercedes-Benz CLS, and a new convertible will give VW badly needed niche vehicles.

Nice overview!
