Audi un-Vails new 4x4 concept

Mark Nichol

Audi has shown the Vail concept at the Geneva Motor Show, a bright red SUV based on the Q3 and aimed at people "who love skiing or snowboarding" in places "like the pistes in the famous Colorado mountain resort".

That's obviously a superfluous selling point in the UK, but what's relevant about the Vail is that it previews a top-of-the-range Q3 for Europe.
