Good news for the SUV Audi Q7 enthusiast who have been waiting for its updated version, you’ll be seeing the updated version as a car of 2015 model year because the developments will be finished by the end of this year.
The introduction of the new Q7 would have been this year if not for the various upgrades on SUV done this year.
Volkswagen group’s developed platform which is MLB Evo is where the new Q7 is built from. A platform that is also planned to be used in “big” cars like Volkswagen Touareg, as well as the next generation of Porsche Cayenne, Lamborghini Urus, Bently SUV and electrical and plug-in hybrid models too.
The new Audi Q7 is expected to weigh only 5,300 pounds due to the lightweight materials like aluminum and carbon fiber that will be used to construct the vehicle. Because of this, it became more than 650 pounds lighter than the previous one.
Not only that, you can choose from the renewed Q7 with 3.0-liter TFSI engine, 4.0-liter TFSI engine and 3.0-liter TDI engine. There’s a plug-in hybrid variant and diesel-electric variant for the U.S. buyers of this updated Q7 available on the market as well. If you’re wondering about the performance version, the quad-exhaust that we saw should confirm that. Los Angeles next month or in Paris in October will host the official debut of the new Audi Q7, as planned.
If you’re preparing for this to change your ride then include car grooming on your list because with a ride like this, you wouldn’t want to see even a hint of dust on it.
