45 TDI Engine

The TDI® engine of the Audi Q7 brings unprecedented energy onto the road. The powerful 45 TDI (3.0 TDI) engine churns out 249 hp (183 kW) of power and 600 Nm of torque which propels the new Audi Q7 from 0 to 100 kmph in 7.1 seconds with a top speed of 234 kmph. The TDI® engine harmoniously 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.

Impressive athletic Exterior:

A sculpturally moulded Single frame grille with a solid frame is the defining element of the all-new Audi Q7. 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® embossing.

Dynamic and interactive Audi Matrix LED headlights

The all-new Audi Q7 offers the progressive Matrix LED technology with the daytime running lights featuring striking double-arrow graphics. 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. Strength of the Matrix LED headlights is the intelligent cornering light, which is created by a shift in the light center position. With millions of different resultant beam patterns, the Matrix LED headlights always superbly light up the road, without dazzling other road users.

Spacious and luxurious Interiors:

Boot Space – Growing families will find plenty of space in Audi’s flagship SUV. 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.

Exceptional detailing

The all-new Audi Q7 boasts of the most spacious interior in the segment conveying a feeling of expanse, generosity, and sophisticated elegance in a luxurious lounge. The clearly defined architecture and the logical operating concept interplay perfectly: all lines are taut with a strict horizontal orientation. As in our 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.
