Audi’s Q7 is coming soon, but it will no longer be its flagship SUV in India.
Audi India has revealed that its upcoming three-row SUV, the Q7, will be launched on 3rd February. The SUV will be a facelifted version of the second-gen model, which was sold in India before April 2020 and was discontinued due to the BS6 emission norms.
The new Q7 will be offered in two variants – Premium Plus and Technology. Both variants will be powered by a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 petrol engine, which makes 335bhp and 500Nm. There will be an 8-speed automatic transmission, which will channel the power to all four wheels via Audi’s Quattro AWD system.
As far as external changes are concerned, the new Q7 will be more or less the same. However, there will be a chunkier grille and lots of chrome, which means that it will say adios to its earlier estate-like look and will look more like an SUV. Inside, however, there will be a host of changes. Audi has introduced its triple-screen setup in the SUV. It includes an updated version of Audi’s Virtual Cockpit, a primary touchscreen, which sits at the centre of the dashboard, and a smaller screen below it to controls things like climate and ventilated seats.
On the features front, you get a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, a 360-degree camera, eight airbags, driver assists, such as lane departure warning, powered seats for both driver and passenger, four-zone climate control, and Adaptive Air Suspension.
