Audi Australia has refreshed its hallmark Q7 SUV, boasting superb dynamics, end-to-end digitisation and a bold new design.
Arriving in Australia in three trim levels, 45 TDI (priced from $101,900), 50 TDI (priced from $112,900) and 50 TDI S line (priced from $119,900) the 2020 Audi Q7 range brings a host of new design, tech, and driver aid revisions. (All prices are excluding on-road costs)
Starting up the front, the new Q7 now comes standard with Matrix LED headlights and 19″ inch alloy wheels, along with a revised front bumper and new pronounced octagonal Singleframe.
The rear end of the Q7 has also been treated to a facelift, and features a new rear bumper with integrated diffuser, new LED tail lights and a refreshed tailgate to go along with it.
Adaptive air suspension is now also a standard feature on the new Q7, offering drivers the ability to adjust the height of the Q7 at different levels for varying strengths across new terrains.
“The refreshed Audi Q7 is one of the most luxurious 7-seater SUVs on the market and it has never been better equipped,” said Paul Sansom, Managing Director of Audi Australia.
Step inside the new Q7 and you’ll really notice some big changes to the outgoing model. A new MMI infotainment system boasts two touchscreens – 10.1-inch (for infotainment) and 8.6-inch (for vehicle functions) – as standard, along with Audi’s 12.3-inch virtual cockpit. Innovative Audi connect plus navigation and infotainment technology come standard, as well as 360-degree cameras, adaptive cruise control with speed limiter, lane departure warning and intersection assist, designed to enhance safety and convenience.
The new Q7 is also slightly larger than the outgoing model, growing eleven millimetres in length which in turn affords occupants more headroom in the front and rear, and will take up to 2,050 litres of luggage capacity in the trunk. The new also Q7 features 3-zone climate control air conditioning, ambient interior lighting package and seat heating for the front seats as standard kit too.
Powering all the new Audi Q7 models (except the SQ7) is a 3.0-litre Turbo Diesel Intercooled V6 engine that is also enhanced with 48-volt mild hybrid technology to reduce its consumption by a staggering 0.7-litres per 100km/h. The powerful engine is mated to the smooth-shifting eight-speed tiptronic and the legendary quattro all-wheel drive.
In 45 TDI quattro form, the engine produces 170 kW with peak torque of 500Nm and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.3 seconds.
In 50 TDI quattro form, the engine produces 210kW with peak torque of 600Nm and can launch itself to 100km/h from rest in 6.5 seconds.
Stepping up from the 50 TDI to the 50 TDI S line offers another substantial level of standard equipment with highlights including:
- 21″ alloy wheels
