Audi India has ushered in the
new Q7 in India at a starting price of Rs 72 lakh. The fully-loaded SUV comes
for Rs 77.50 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai and New Delhi). The vehicle is powered by
a 45 TDI (3.0 TDI) engine that churns out 249 hp and 600 Nm of peak torque.
Thus, the car accelerates from from 0 to 100 kmph in 7.1 seconds. Fuel
efficiency is improved in this new vehicle at 14.75 kmpl. The car is up to 325
kgs lighter than its predecessor.
The TDI engine delivers power to
the road practically loss-free through a superior chassis. This interplay of
components provides the ideal basis for dynamic handling. A quick-shifting eight speed tiptronic
transmission and the low overall weight coupled with the quattro drive, allows
the all-new Audi Q7 to perform impressively on any terrain, whether it is the
freeway or winding roads.
The new Q7 comes with a sculpturally
moulded Singleframe grille with a solid frame. The Matrix LED headlights featuring
striking double- arrow graphics, intense wheel arches and the shoulder line
emphasizing the wheels are some of the new design elements of the all-new Audi
Q7. The tailgate extending around the D-pillars are complemented by new
highlights such as inlay strips at the bottom of the doors with quattro
Each Matrix LED headlight
divides its high beam into 30 individual light- emitting diodes paired with
three reflectors. The control unit, which communicates with the camera on the
rear view mirror, can switch the individual diodes off and on and dim them in
64 stages as needed. The intelligent cornering light is created by a shift in
the light centre position. With millions of different resultant beam patterns,
the Matrix LED headlights always superbly light up the road, without dazzling
other road users.
Luggage space on demand is
possible with the electrically folding third row seats. Total luggage space of
1,955 liters can be obtained by folding the second row seats which splits in
the ratio of 35:30:35 for flexibility of the storage space.
As in the company’s flagship A8
L sedan, the
inlays come in two
parts, with the different materials forming effective contrasts-
Upper inlay in brushed aluminium and lower in walnut terra brown.
One can feel in control at all
times by having the navigation, speed
information and media on a 31.24 centimetre razor-sharp and
high-contrast customizable display. One can also reach one’s destination with
ease by using voice command, the integrated steering wheel controls or the
extra- large touchpad next to the gearstick. The all-in-touch control panel has
multi-touch capability with haptic feedback, thus enhancing functionality such
as zooming in by pinching like a smartphone.
The car comes equipped with a
Bose 3D sound system with sound
reproduction through 19 speakers- including 3D sound speakers, centre speaker
and subwoofer; 3D sound is reproduced through speakers in the A- pillars.
A newly developed luxurious
four-zone climate control system is standard on the all-new Audi Q7 with the temperature display integrated
in the rotary control.
A four spoke steering wheel
with an electrical adjuster along with the multifunction plus controls and
shift paddles are the other characteristics of the new Audi Q7. The
high-quality cockpit has been designed with the driver in mind and is colour-
coordinated, with the centre console raised and easy to operate.
The self-locking centre
differential – the heart of the quattro all-wheel drive system – is integrated
into the housing of eight-speed tiptronic transmission. The design with centre
differential and front axle drive integrated in the tiptronic transmission is
significantly more compact and
lighter in weight than the predecessor model.
The Audi Drive
Select provides Comfort, Auto, Dynamic, Individual and
Off-road as standard modes. In
conjunction with adaptive air suspension the All-road and lift/off road mode is
added. The all-new Audi Q7 displays the
tilt angle of the car when in the all
road or lift/off road.
The all-new Audi Q7 is
equipped with assistance systems like the auto park assist and 360 degree
surround camera with bird’s eye view.
“India is a land of quattro,
and SUVs owing to their
high degree of functionality are
the preferred choice of
mobility here. The all-new
Audi Q7 encapsulates the cutting-edge
technology that is at the very heart of the Audi brand. It is an efficient and
sporty superlative offering, with even better dynamics than its predecessor.
Lightweight yet extremely powerful, the class-defining SUV offers unprecedented
performance with exceptional fuel efficiency. The all-new
chassis made up of
multi-material body provides excellent comfort
while its eight-speed tiptronic
transmission, allows drivability that is both agile and comfortable. Combined
with a striking imposing design with great road presence and performance, the
all- new Audi Q7 is poised to emulate
the success of its predecessor,” said
Joe King, Head, Audi India.
