Audi is launching a new luxury all-terrain Q7 SUV with new visual and mechanical benefits promised. Delivery lead time is likely to be July 2009. This new Q7 combines seven seat practicality with quattro four-wheel drive and variable height adaptive air suspension technology, for genuine off-road capability.
The new range also offers for the first time an ultra-low emission, EU6 compliant TDI model using an AdBlue additive to eradicate virtually all harmful nitrous oxides from emissions and already meets the stringent EU regulations applicable from 2014.
The engine range offers 3.0 TDI, 4.2 TDI V8 and 6.0 V12 TDI diesel versions and 3.6 FSI V6 and 4.2 FSI V8 direct injection petrol units. The new Q7 3.0 TDI (233PS) "clean diesel" version also offers 31.7 mgp on the combined fuel cycle. The 4.2 TDI achieves 28.5 mpg, 6.0 litre V12 TDI (25.0 mpg), the 3.6 FSI registers 23.3 mgp and the 4.2 FSI, 22.2 mpg.
From a body styling perspective the new Q7 has a redesigned front grille, restyled bumpers incorporating new integrated under-body protectors, new door mouldings and distinctive new LED rear lights.
Three specification levels are offered (standard, SE and S line) for the V6 FSI and V6 TDI models, while the V8 petrol and V8 TDI versions are available exclusively in SE or S line form.
