New edition of the Audi Q7

The optimized all-wheel steering allows the rear wheels to turn as much as five degrees in the opposite direction.

18 November 2020 | Business

The Audi Q7 has just undergone an all-round update both visually and technically. The large SUV now features the new design of the Q family and offers superb dynamics and excellent comfort.

The updated digital operating interior concept and the full suite of Audi connect services are just some of its new highlights. The new Audi Q7 is now currently available for sale in South Africa.

The Audi Q7 demonstrates the hallmark SUV elements of the current design language. It bears the large octagon-shaped Single frame, with six upright slats providing the structure.

As such, the SUV looks even more powerful. The two-part side air inlets have a much more expressive line, just like the sill area that underscores the large SUV's ground clearance and, in turn, its off-road capabilities.

On the restyled rear, a striking chrome strip creates the visual connection between the flat rear lights with their technical-looking graphics and carries forward the horizontal body line. The designers achieved the clear view with taut, flat surfaces, which span the entire width particularly in the license plate region.

Furthermore, the Audi Q7 is even more striking in the S line model with enhanced exterior accents. A blade in the front bumper, radiator grille in titanium black with vertical slats in aluminium sliver matte, sportily accentuated underbody protection at the rear along with full paint finish, high gloss package, roof rails in aluminium and 20-inch wheels which come standard.

Moreover, the Audi has substantially enhanced the dynamic facets of the Q7. The optimized all-wheel steering allows the rear wheels to turn as much as five degrees in the opposite direction.



Comfort

As such, the Audi Q7 is precise and agile in urban traffic and on hairpin bends. In contrast, the Q7 behaves as a highly comfortable, poised touring SUV with excellent ride comfort on freeways particularly in conjunction with the optional adaptive air suspension. It also provides variable ground clearance and prepares the Audi Q7 with its standard quattro drive for terrain off the beaten track.

The relevant off-road mode can be selected via the standard Audi drive select dynamic handling system with its seven profiles. There is one diesel engine in the local model range line up. It is coupled to an eight-speed Tiptronic and permanent all-wheel drive. The Audi Q7 45 TDI quattro Tiptronic produces 183 kW of power and 600 Nm of torque. It accelerates the large SUV from a standstill to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 225 km/h.

Whether with five or seven seats, the Audi Q7 combines immense prestige with practical everyday qualities. Through its new design, the large SUV has now grown eleven millimetres to 5 063 millimetres long. It measures 1 970 millimetres wide and 1 741 millimetres including roof aerial high. - Motor Press
