From the exterior, as is familiar with a facelift, there is little you can see from the new Audi Q7.
The flatter single-frame grille with six vertical supports and air holes highlighted in the sporty twin Q8 model still shows the most striking.
Headlights that are highly contoured with new light signatures are now highlighting old LED works. But there are additional costs for matrix innovation (1350 euros) and laser lights (2400 euros).
New Audi Q7 Facelift
The standard price of the Audi Q7 has increased again. The entry-level version of the Q7 45 TDI starts from 66,990 euros and the cost of extra-effective diesel, especially more than 3,000 euros. For S-line variations, every 4,400 euros is additional, while prices for petrol engines are unknown. In return, this is standardized according to the Euro 6d-Temp, a 4.0-liter Biturbo engine supplying 435 hp and also driving an SUV with an incredible 900 Nm of torque in 4.8 s to 100 km. Even, including air suspension and progressive steering as the spearhead of the sporty Q7 for at least 94,900 euros.
Besides, fast and efficient Tiptronic transmissions, like all-wheel-drive, are always equipped with old work, no matter which engine hammers the hood.
At the market launch, this was originally a 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel popular at 45 TDI with 231 hp and also at 50 TDI with 286 hp.
The 55 TFSI V6 petrol engine of the same size produces 340 hp.
Like the two diesel motors, now supported by a 48-volt light crossing with a starter belt generator (RSG), which increases the standard consumption up to 0.7 liters, it needs to be suppressed.
If the driver frees the accelerator, the vehicle will recover from the idle roll or move for up to 40 seconds, with the engine deactivated.
RSG must restore power up to 8 kW. This new plug-in hybrid with a V6 fuel engine is planned for 2020.
Apart from many functions, the system does not complicate the vehicle driver. In contrast, the structure and submenus are quite clear.
If you don’t want to type, use voice controls that work well and tell the car what needs to be done.
As the norm in the Audi upper-class segment, there are two large touch screens on the Q7 console facility with bright and different responses to replace many switches and controls.
The driver handles cooling, comfort features, and text input on the lower 8.6-inch screen, also with handwriting.
The top one is used for managing information and even navigation, 8.8 inches diagonally with the standard MMI radio plus system, and 10.1 inches with the optional MMI navigation plus.
In this variation, Virtual Cockpit is currently moving to Q7 rather than the analog cluster instrument series.
The 12.3-inch high-resolution screen on the steering wheel can be activated in two displays, and at an extra cost also on the third sporty surface.
The second-generation Audi Q7 has been on the market for 4 years.
So it is an important time for technological modification in terms of machine innovation.
Assistance and infotainment systems follow an increasingly shorter cycle that makes the Audi SUV flagship previously look a bit old.
The idea of automatic operation, active roll stabilization, or LED Matrix headlamps consisting of laser beams are just a few of the essential things in the new Audi Q7, which will launch to the market in September.
Indeed, as usual from Audi, anything is just for an extra euro. Standard variations start from 66,900 euros.
The back is flat and wide, there is a light aluminum strip attached continuously to the rear lights.
Optional S-line variations (4400 euros) have reliable underride protection, and 19-inch wheels are also attractive.
The tailgate opens and closes electrically as standard, but movement control can also be done with leg movements.
For this purpose, flagship SUVs have an excellent network with more than 30 assistance systems. Some of them come as conventional, most are in two optional equipment packages.
For 1690 euros, it previously consisted of adaptive driving assistance, distance cruise control, effectiveness, turning and avoidance assistants, lane, and emergency assistant.
The convenience packages for 1,200 euros include support for intersection, blindspot, lane change, and departure warnings.
Also, there are alternatives such as the environment (1150 euros), electronic night vision cameras (2150 euros), or car parking assistants (390 euros).
The high-quality interior materials, as usual, everything is still styled as before. The ample three-meter wheelbase even creates enormous space.
In the five-seat version, the trunk cuts 865 to 2050 liters by relying on equipment.
Audi provides rear seats with an additional 390 euros plus where all three seats can be moved and tilted independently.
There is also the third row with two seats that can be electrically pulled with an additional 1520 euros.
Almost nothing is really felt on the steering wheel of electronic interaction.
However, more than that, diesel and gas’s active drive and extraordinary agility to drive the load are very significant.
In fact, a solid TDI runs as efficiently and smoothly as a gas engine with 500 Nm accelerates quickly. After 5.9 seconds, TFSI reaches a Tempo 100 value.
We strongly recommend the optional all-wheel steering wheel (1150 euros), which adapts the Q7 on bendy passages by turning it in the same path into the bends.
Anyone who enjoys the luxury of active roll stabilization (from 4,350 euros) will love it.
The pulled higher frame gives the road nearly 2.2 tons, which is lightweight and visually emphasizes ground clearance.
Even if the standard is only 18.5 cm, like the Fiat 500 X. Most SUVs have more to offer. When an optional air suspension (starting at 2050 euros) is installed, the body can be raised to 24.5 cm.
That is still not all because of the additional price list for expensive and long-distance driving comfort.
Other are low noise closing-door (640 euros), warmed windshield (590 euros), and four-zone automatic climate control (800 euros), Air Quality package with aromatization, and ionizer (400 euros) along with complementary heating systems controlled by the application.
The ventilation (1550 euros) can be found along with many alternatives for seats, seat covers, wheels, paint, and also design packages for outside and inside.
Consumers can choose between three variants with a multifunction steering wheel and two of them with paddles for eight-speed automatic.
