New grill, new lights
As we all know, all good things come in threes. After Porsche and Volkswagen revised the technically closely related Cayenne and Touareg models last year, the Audi Q7 is now being facelifted. The facelifted model can be recognized primarily by the new rear lights and headlights. The latter are available with matrix LED technology and laser high beam upon request.
The large single-frame radiator grille now has a new hexagon honeycomb pattern. The interior retains the familiar layout with digital instruments and two monitors, which now run the latest infotainment software with modified controls and graphics. A passenger screen, such as that found in the new Cayenne, is not provided for the Q7 or SQ7 (combined fuel consumption: 12.7-7.8 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 290-204 g/km) ²
Well-known engine range, but no longer a plug-in hybrid
The two well-known 3.0-liter V6 diesel engines with 170 kW/231 hp (45 TDI) and 210 kW/286 hp (50 TDI) are available for the drive, as well as the 3, which was no longer available for a few months. 0-liter V6 petrol engine (50 TFSI) available again. As usual, it has 205 kW/340 hp. The 373 kW/507 hp 4.0-liter V8 remains reserved for the top model SQ7. All engines are combined with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The two plug-in hybrids (55 and 60 TFSIe) offered until 2021 will complement the engine range at a later date.
Market launch and prices
The starting price for the Q7 45 TDI has increased by a good 7,000 euros compared to autumn 2023, the Q7 50 TDI is now available from 82,300 euros – also an increase of 7,000 euros. The S model now costs at least 112,000 euros and has therefore become a full 10,000 euros more expensive. The largest Audi SUV to date is expected to remain available until at least 2025. Its successor will only be purely electric. The market launch of the new Q7 is expected to begin in the spring. (Text: tv, hh/sp-x | Images: manufacturer)
