71 kilograms (156.5 lb) less weight: Body

2016 Audi Q7

The new Q7 is an distinguished car with the scoop altitude:burthen proportion in its grade: 5.05 meters (16.6 ft) farseeing, a 2.99 metre (9.8 ft) wheelbase, 1.97 meters (6.5 ft) all-encompassing and 1.74 meters (5.7 ft) improbable (with nerve reprieve). Although it is shorter and narrower than its herald, the cabin is thirster and offers more nous board.

20 age of have with whippersnapper structure menstruum into the new Audi Q7. Weaponed with the 3.0 TDI locomotive, the new Audi Q7 tips the scales at fair 1,995 kilograms (4,398 lb), which is 325 kilograms (716.5 lb) less burthen – the eq of a concert grand. The Q7 with the 3.0 TFSI locomotive is eventide flatboat, deliberation upright 1,970 kilograms (4,343.1 lb). Jackanapes expression has been applied altogether areas, from the electric scheme to the trunk coldcock. The key is the structure, where a new multimaterial excogitation reduces its weightiness by 71 kilograms (156.5 lb). This places the new Q7 among the topper in its section.

Ultra-high-strength parts made of hot-shaped brand manakin the grit of the occupier cubicle. Al castings, extruded sections and panels are victimised in the presence and ass ends also as the superstructure. They invoice for 41 pct of the structure. Otc parts made totally of aluminium are the doors, which shaving 24 kilograms (52.9 lb) of weighting, the presence fenders, the locomotive cap and the behind incubate. Audi uses new manufacture methods for the yield and gathering of the parts. The clangoring rubber and resident tribute of the new Audi Q7 are too on the highest floor.

Deuce-ace crookedness rings reward the front, the region of the C-pillars and the backside hatching cutout. These gambol a major function in the immensely improved inactive and dynamical rigour of the eubstance. The crookedness rings are the founding for the exact treatment and superordinate vibrational consolation in the car’s upcountry.

Quiet on board

The bounty acoustical insularism reinforces the feeling of solidness and elegance by providing for a unparalleled point of tranquillity in every office. The best-in-class aeroacoustics solvent from the interplay ‘tween diverse fomite components, such as the mirror mounted on the berm job.

The big SUV has a cd appraise of hardly 0.32. This top score in the section is the solvent of advanced expert solutions. The underbelly is almost totally seamed; a minor coddler in the ar of the bottom axle reduces raise. The efficiency modelling – the V6 TDI with 160 kW (218 hp) which volition be launchend at a subsequently see – features louvers betwixt the Singleframe lattice and the top part of the principal radiator. The fictile slats afford and – for meliorate aeromechanics – finale as requirement. This is based on an energy-optimized accountant for uttermost cd reward.

Confident: Exterior design

The proportions bear changed compared with the former simulation. The big SUV is 37 millimeters (1.5 in) shorter and 15 millimeters (0.6 in) narrower spell most the like stature. Inwardly, nonetheless, thither is an extra 21 millimeters (0.8 in) ‘tween the outset and indorsement rows of seating, and mind way has increased by 41 millimeters (1.6 in) and 23 millimeters (0.9 in) in the commencement and s rows, severally.

The pattern of the new Q7 is masculine and compulsive. Horizontal lines stretch supra the wheels. These blisters are a elusive court to the authoritative quattro models from Audi. The outside mirrors are mounted on the shoulders of the doors; blades run from the forepart to the arse doors and expect brocaded quattro logos. The back hachure wraps roughly the monolithic, steeply raked D-pillars, a distinctive characteristic of the Q models from Audi.

The Singleframe wicket is deep sculptured and features boneheaded crossbars. It is structured organically into the front. Its all-encompassing bod extends to the headlights, which sport either xe, LED or Matrix LED engineering, contingent the alternative elect by the client. The day linear lights of the LED headlights are molded care a reduplicate pointer. The taillights of the top exemplar admit dynamical twist signals – another Audi creation.

New look: Trim strips and add-on parts

Quartet of the xi outside colours uncommitted for the Q7 are new. All of the clipping strips adorning the torso of the big SUV get a lustrelessness aluminum-look goal for a flashy, innovative appearing. Bolt-on parts such as the doorway inlays and underbelly tribute movement and back get criterion with a smooth-spoken rouge goal. In the pedestal constellation, the arse part of the bumpers and the cycle arches are anthracite, rough-textured shaping. These are likewise uncommitted in the eubstance coloring as an selection. Adoption from the bolt-on parts, the grille is ruined with a new, softly integrated rouge that underscores the off-road lineament of the car.

With the endorsement choice – the S cable outside box – the bumpers, the air inlets, the slope sills, the cap mollycoddler and the diffusor sport a peculiarly sheer figure. The grille and the slats in the sidelong air intakes characteristic a freshly highly-developed, liberal, shadow grayness, high-gloss finishing that replaces the fellow high-gloss melanize.

Audi offers an optional might preview interference with preview helper. The new Audi Q7 has a towing content of 3.5 measured oodles if weaponed with the optional air abeyance.

Broadly stretched lines: Interior design

The new Audi Q7 welcomes its passengers with an aura of civilized elegance and roominess. The inside excogitation appears tautly stretched; the two‑opus inlays are useable in respective fabric combinations. The duplicate diligence disrobe in the doors provides for a sensation of light.

The board is visually detached from the essence solace, load-bearing the sportiness and agility of the national.

Feeling of safety and protection: The wrap-around

A wrap-around track from the doors done the panel to configuration a rather protective harbour gives the driver and passengers a flavor of shelter. The port components are bespoken specifically to the Audi Q7. They are situated on the essence comfort, which is orientated toward the driver. The shapes and contours of the port components accord comfortably with the national architecture. The lines of the air vents gunpoint to the pawn clustering and boost reward the driver preference.

The ambient inflammation uses LEDs only. A irregular variate of the ambient firing is useable as an substitute. Ultra-narrow igniter guides espouse the contours on the board and in the doors (including passing monitory) as measure, and in an acclivity alternative they too admit the essence burrow soothe. Now first this firing can be controlled via the MMI. In the top parcel, several colours can be selected.

Color and equipment: Diverse equipment variants

With the colours and materials ill-used in the Q7, Audi is viewing a new reflection of nimbleness, sportiness and sumptuosity in the agiotage SUV section. The panel is detached horizontally into two colours, which enables brighter colours to be victimised on the freighter. Thither are septenary national colours from which to take. The bikini coating striptease is uncommitted in a form of stuff combinations. Also high-quality essence finishes, thither are a routine of aluminium and woods variants from which to opt, including Beaufort walnut. Audi propose a prize of textile, Alcantara, rich Cricket leather and mulct Valcona leather for the buns coverings.

For customers quest level more identity, Audi offers trey leather packages and two innovation selections. One refined and one sportsmanlike figure admit wax leather with demarcation sewing, Alcantara headlining, sumptuousness velours level mats summation sole coloring and corporeal combinations and covering strips. The Audi sole grasp offers many extra customization options.

Even more room than in the previous model: The space concept

With the longest cabin in its stratum disdain shorter outside distance, the new Audi Q7 offers more quad than its harbinger. Passengers revel more caput, berm and genu way. The quad construct is extremely varying. Audi provides an super well-fixed three-seat whole with adjustable seatbacks for the irregular row. If craved, all iii seating can apiece be touched lengthways capable 110 millimeters (4.3 in), 10 millimeters (0.4 in) more ahead.

Another selection is for two somebody seating in the tierce row that are qualified as Aggroup 3 minor seating. These routine the Audi Q7 into a seven-seater with fifty-fifty greater substitute. 24 millimeters (0.9 in) more caput board and 20 millimeters (0.8 in) more berm board cater for more distance. With the seating folded fine-tune, the buns backs are merged into the shipment deck and can be embossed or lowered electrically victimisation cradle switches ergonomically placed in the ar of the C-pillars and in the load compartment.

For optimum admission to the 3rd row, the seating in the sec row can be folded refine and canted abreast adjoin as a compress software, providing an launching breadth of 376 millimeters (14.8 in). All seating in the s and 3rd rows bear Isofix/i-Size fixtures for fry seating. Customers can thusly bestride to six shaver seating in the new Audi Q7. Curler blinds and night “secrecy” glazing is optionally uncommitted for the behind. The bird’s-eye spyglass sunshine-roof – another choice – makes the generous inside fifty-fifty brighter and airier.

If all heptad seating are engaged, the payload compartment of the new Audi Q7 has a content of 295 liters (10.4 cu ft), 770 liters (27.2 cu ft) in lading form. The five-seater offers 890 liters (31.4 cu ft) and 2,075 liters (73.3 cu ft) with the sec row arse backs folded fine-tune. To ameliorate the serviceability of the lading compartment, the developers lowered the lading lip by 46 millimeters (1.8 in) compared with the old example. A index backside crosshatch is touchstone. In compounding with the forward-looking key, Audi besides offers motion controller – a boot movement in the plaza beneath the bottom cover and the cover opens mechanically. The like groundwork motion can besides be victimised to finale the hachure again.

A issue of over-the-counter options are uncommitted for fashioning interactions with the big SUV virtual and commodious: a might payload compartment covering, mightiness doorway closers and a het windscreen.

Fewer buttons for optimal ergonomics: Operation and display

All controls are framed in okay aluminium lines. They accord dead with the architecture – a rock-bottom figure of buttons patch concurrently offer optimum bioengineering. Forepart behind choices are banner seating, touchstone seating with mood part, play seating, fun seating with pneumatics and the customs shape behind. The designing of the sec and 3rd row can be altered to the variants elect for the forepart seating.

The figurehead seating propose driver and rider plentitude of blank and solace. Among the bum variants offered by Audi in the new Q7 are the multi-adjustable play bum and the climate-controlled person shape behind with capable 18 adjustments and optional knead office. The latter includes pentad dissimilar programs, apiece with a option of five-spot loudness levels.

Newly developed: Deluxe air conditioning

Audi equips the big SUV measure with a freshly highly-developed, two-zone grand air conditioning arrangement. Its new operational construct uses fewer buttons and controls. Alive symbols in the show, the high-quality TFT showing and the capacitive toggle switches render for nonrational procedure of the air conditioning. Audi likewise offers the selection of a voluptuous four-zone scheme, the temperature displays of which are unified into the roundabout dials. A show with toggle switches shows the condition of selected functions. When the toggle is stirred, the card expands for amend discernability and easier procedure.

The rightfield zona of the panel includes a uninterrupted air outlet striptease – including uninterrupted chromium-plate covering – from which the air exits indirectly and draft-free. Both air conditioning variants fling customers peculiarly gamey air tone in the cabin. In both saucy air and recirculation manner, the air conditioning organisation filters out o.k. particulates.

Playfully easy: the new MMI operating concept

The modish multiplication of the Audi MMI operational construct makes it promiscuous to mastery the mass of commodious and forward-looking functions in the Audi Q7. The modern MMI hunt with reasoning suggestions makes it easier to lookup for particular strain titles and to comment phone contacts or seafaring destinations, frankincense importantly reduction the total of clock worn-out on these operations. Virtually all entries can be realized in scarce a few stairs. Two supplementary menus stop intelligently coupled functions and options. Audi again sets a benchmark hither.

Displays look on the exchange MMI supervise, which rises up from the board when the organisation is started and too enables the rider to use the Audi MMI organisation in the habitual style.

Haptic feedback: MMI all-in-touch

The focussing of the os is the freshly highly-developed MMI all-in-touch mastery whole with a good contact coat. Apiece stimulus is followed by an acoustical and a tactual check – a dawn that is besides mat on the digit.

The driver can participate characters on the enceinte touchpad or do multi-finger gestures to whizz in on the map or ringlet done lists, e.g.. The primary functions can be accessed victimisation the high-quality circle pushbutton and two cradle switches. The driver can likewise portion personal favorites, such as piloting destinations, call numbers or radiocommunication stations, to octet freely programmable buttons.

The requirement ascendancy logic of the Audi MMI is likewise reflected in the new multifunction guidance wheels. Customers can engage the onboard reckoner with its fomite info and entropy for the driver also as control the sound arrangement with the finger of their left. Contingent the equipment installed, telephone and piloting functions can besides be controlled via the wheel. The proved bulk curler with muffle routine too as the vocalism duologue push, ring verbalise controls and the hardheaded Hop-skip routine apace ever-changing the tuner send or the call are set on the veracious incline of the wheel.

“Where can I get gas?”: new natural speech control

Another highlighting is the vox restraint organization. It is now often simpler. Drivers no yearner sustain to follow predefined commands. The organisation understands phrasings from unremarkable words, signification that hundreds of control variations are potential for apiece office. In the ring card, career a liaison is as light as expression “I deprivation to lecture to Pecker” or “Colligate me to Dick.” But the piloting arrangement too reacts to unproblematic commands (such as “Where can I get gas?” or “I wishing to eat something”). Cancel lecture ascendence is likewise incorporate into the card items Tuner and Media (e.g., “Turn Tuner Beetleweed” or “I wish to hear to my iPod”), enabling uniform vocalisation restraint for the client.

Driver-relevant entropy is displayed in the new Q7 in a high-quality instrumentate clump with just fictional dial instruments for rpm and speeding. The 7-inch coloration showing places everything from the flow radiocommunication post to the pilotage map to the presentation from the optional night-sight supporter direct in the field.

Sophisticated graphics: Audi virtual cockpit

The optional MMI piloting summation is besides useable with the Audi practical cockpit, a 12.3-inch TFT expose that presents tack-sharp, fastidiously rendered art. As in the new Audi TT, the Q7 client can permutation betwixt a graeco-roman survey with high-quality rendered dial instruments and an documentary purview with an lengthened presentation arena for lists and the map – all handily from the wheel. Moreover, tradition views, such as sure values from the onboard reckoner, can too be configured. The large flexibleness of the displays enables all info to be bright presented as a procedure of personal preferences and the impulsive berth.

Awesome computing power: the T30 processor from Audi’s partner NVIDIA

This high-pitched operation is made potential by the sound interplay of the Audi electronics architecture. The modular docudrama chopine (MIB) is an authoritative organisation factor hither. The new Q7 is furnished with the indorsement multiplication of the MIB, which includes a quad-core T30 mainframe from Audi’s collaborator NVIDIA.

Collectively the arcsecond T30 mainframe incorporate forthwith into the Audi practical cockpit, the systems engender splendid 3D art and tack-sharp dial instruments displayed at a value of 60 frames per indorsement. The art calibre, crystalline images and animations conjointly the high-end resoluteness of 1,440 x 540 pixels produce an all-new optical have.

Another high-end pick in the new Audi Q7 is the head-up show, which is harmoniously incorporate into the panel. It projects all key info onto the windscreen.

Modular: the infotainment

Audi offers assorted levels of the documentary modules for the new Q7. The MMI tuner addition is received in Germany. This offers interfaces for extraneous devices such as fluid phones or store cards. The measure Audi vocalize organisation delivers splendid voice calibre from its ten speakers. It is controlled exploitation the MMI depot on the core burrow, which comprises a orbitual pushbutton, two options buttons and four-spot principal routine buttons.

Displays are shown on a exchange, 7-inch MMI varan that rises up from the board when the organisation is started.

The high-end docudrama mastery mall is the MMI piloting positive, which has an 8.3-inch admonisher. Workings in the desktop is the irregular contemporaries of the modular docudrama chopine. Its key factor is the fasting Tegra 30 artwork c.p.u. from Audi’s mate NVIDIA.

Sound with a third dimension: 3D sound

Audi offers extra ironware components bey MMI piloting positive. The Bose audio scheme with 3D strait and the Fringe & Olufsen Advance Voice Organisation with 3D phone captivate flush discreet hi users. Both systems procreate euphony in innovational 3D fathom. Extra speakers in the A-pillars ply the spacial property of elevation so that the euphony appears to be orgasm from a expectant practical stagecoach. The Smasher & Olufsen scheme drives 23 speakers including subwoofers with 1,920 watts of amplifier exponent.

The Audi call box, another selection in the new Q7 already useable in early models, connects the cubicle earphone to the car’s cellphone aerial. Inducive charging and radiocommunication smartphone association leave be useable as extra functions concisely abaft the found of the new Audi Q7.

New rear seat entertainment: the Audi tablet

Audi is breakage new land in arse ass amusement. One or optionally two Audi tablets with 10.1 in screens and a hunky-dory finishing attend as ass arse monitors. Their spirit is a knock-down NVIDIA Tegra 4 cpu. The Audi pad can rise to the demanding challenges in the car – it is temperature-resistant and offers the essential clangour condom absent in ceremonious end-device solutions. The Audi pad is attached to the MMI pilotage addition via WiFi, hence gaining admission to the radiocommunication, media, piloting and car functions of the Audi Q7.

A behind ass rider can, e.g., air a seafaring finish to the MMI piloting via the Audi lozenge. The rider can too breakers the Cyberspace via the WiFi connective. The use of the Humanoid os in the Audi lozenge and the handiness of the Google Caper fund spring the client admission to a immense numeral of applications, games, movies, euphony, eBooks and lots more. At the end of the actuate, the Audi lozenge can be remote from its wax and secondhand offline or on any extraneous WiFi web. The Audi pad features a full-of-the-moon HD camera, 32 GB of interior repositing and an extra Bluetooth and NFC port for connecting headphones, e.g..

Passengers can channel-surf via the WiFi hotspot with download speeds of capable 100 Mbit/s and post and invite netmail piece victimisation a form of applications. The driver can use the made-to-order Audi colligate services ranging from on-line dealings entropy to piloting with Google Ground and Google Street Sight to on-line media cyclosis. The new app provides admission to Aupeo! personal web wireless and the expectant Napster medicine library.

2016 Audi Q7

The Q7 besides has a new, top-of-the-line component of the Audi colligate portfolio: The Audi smartphone port brings “Apple Car Gambol” and “Google Humanoid Motorcar” aboard. If an iOS or Humanoid cell is attached to the USB embrasure (iOS from Variation 7.1; Humanoid from Rendering 5.0 Popsicle), the several surround opens in the Audi smartphone port. Both are bespoken for use in the car. The ticker of this sport is on-line euphony. In gain, both platforms offering sailing functions, lost birdcall/appointee reminders and messaging functions. Ended clip, these leave be linked by legion third-party applications such as Pandora, Spotify and WhatsApp.

Customer wish fulfilled: online updates for the navigation map

The Audi Q7 offers extra new services too the fellow Audi join portfolio. E.g., the stigma with the quartet rings now offers on-line updates for the seafaring map. Audi Q7 drivers can download the update immediately to the car victimization the LTE connecter. They can likewise download the information to their figurer victimisation the myAudi program at www.audi.de/myaudi and transferral them to the car via an SD lineup. A 3rd selection is initiation at an Audi franchise.

A notice appears in the MMI seafaring asset when a new map update is usable. Updates testament be released every six months, and the get-go five-spot updates are unblock for Audi drivers. Customers can update either the dispatch Europe map or solitary soul regions. Seafaring continues to sour without confinement during the on-line update in the car.

Audi join can be secondhand gratis with MMI pilotage asset for 3 months. An denotation for an extra leash age is usable as a manufactory selection or via Audi Abaft Sales Avail.

Audi connect: additional new services

The Audi Q7 leave incur extra new services soon aft plunge when the equipment constituent “Audi relate Exigency Career & Serve” becomes uncommitted with the functions exigency career, on-line calls in lawsuit of a dislocation and Audi on-line servicing appointments.

The equipment component besides includes the overhaul software “Audi colligate Fomite Ascendence”, comprising the services fomite condition paper, remote mesh/unlock, parking emplacement and the remote for the optional adjunct heat. “Audi colligate Exigency Vocation & Overhaul” can be secondhand 10 geezerhood gratis. The serve parcel “Audi tie Fomite Controller” is useable gratis for 3 geezerhood, at the end of which it can be prolonged for a fee.

A range that sets new standards: the driver assistance systems

With its scope of driver aid systems, the new Audi Q7 sets standards that arrive bey the standards in its section. Around systems sustain been altogether redeveloped from scraping.

Banner are the ass parking aid, sail restraint, adjustable fastness clipper, residual passport and the rubber organization Audi pre feel metropolis. At metropolis speeds it warns the driver of imminent collisions with otc vehicles or pedestrians and testament novice large braking in an pinch.

If the hit is inevitable, the multicollision bracken aid organization uses controlled braking maneuvers during the fortuity to aid the driver. This can helper to foreclose the car from skidding and hence extra collisions. The optional “Audi pre gumption canonical” initiates preventative protective measures for the occupants in instable drive states, such as tightening of the strawman buns belts.

Optional solutions are bundled in the packages “Parking”, “Metropolis” and “Turn”. The “Parking” bundle includes the besiege scene camera and the green assistance organisation, which autonomously steers the car rearward into twin and english-gothic parking floater. The driver sole has to implement the brakes and the gas.

New: cross-traffic assist, exit warning system and trailer assistant

The “Metropolis” software comprises new systems. The cross-traffic help warns the driver of otc vehicles when drive slow in turnabout, such as when withdrawal from a english-gothic parking blot. The departure monition organisation indicates vehicles or cyclists approach from the bottom earlier the threshold is open.

If the new Audi Q7 is ill-used as a tow fomite, the drone helper steers the dawdler back in exactly the centering indicated by the driver exploitation the circular pushbutton of the MMI. The scheme likewise manages turn the wheel in the paired guidance, stabilizes the trailer-tow fomite whole when impulsive back in a consecutive occupation and when the wheel is off too far warns if the drone could hit the behind of the fomite.

Audi incline attend uses radian measurements backside the car to assure secure lane changes; Audi pre signified behind tensions the ass belts in the upshot of an imminent hit from bottom. The parking organisation addition and the reversing cameras round the “Metropolis” parcel.

For slow-moving traffic: ACC stop & go including traffic jam assistant

More innovations from Audi can be establish in the “Circuit” bundle. The adaptative sail ascendence organisation accelerates and brakes to hold the Q7 at the coveted outstrip from the fomite forrader. It displays the aloofness when it is deactivated. With the top adaptation, ACC occlusion & go including snarl-up helper, the organisation too takes complete the steerage on highly-developed highways if dealings engorged and not moving quicker than 60 km/h (37.3 mph).

Audi combat-ready lane help uses a camera and pocket-sized direction interventions to aid the driver to halt in a lane. The prophylactic arrangement Audi pre signified forepart warns of an impendent rear-end hit with the fomite forrader, tensions the belts and brakes the car autonomously, if necessity. It does both of these things in multiple stages.

Even lower consumption: the predictive efficiency assistant

The prognosticative efficiency help is a innovative founding from Audi. It uses the road information from the piloting organisation to watchful the driver of situations in which it would micturate gumption to dilute hurrying, such as ahead curves, towns or velocity limitation signs that are not yet seeable. In coaction with adaptative sail ascendancy (ACC) and dealings preindication realization, the arrangement adapts the preselected velocity to the path and the swiftness limits. The prognostic efficiency adjunct, which can besides absorb prognostic mastery of the free-wheeling use of the eight-speed tiptronic, has the potency to tighten fire uptake on interurban roadstead by as practically as tenth.

Too useable as an pick is the night-sight helper. It uses an infrared camera to observe pedestrians and bigger wilderness animals at longsighted distances in the colored and issues allow warnings. The camera-based dealings signal realization organisation rounds out the spectrum.

Two boost systems are scheduled to adopt briefly abaft the establish. The dodging adjunct intervenes in the direction to assist the driver obviate an obstruction. The turn helper monitors opponent dealings when turn left-hand at low speeds. In a vital spot, it brakes the car.

Powerful and efficient: the updated engines

The new Audi Q7 is climax to the European marketplace with two sinewy and highly-cultivated V6 engines: a TDI and a TFSI. Thanks to intensifier refinements, their CO2 emissions sustain been decreased by as practically as 50 grams per klick (80.5 g/mi). Both engines follow with the Euro 6 emissions banner.

The hefty 3.0 TDI produces 200 kW (272 hp) and 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) of torsion. The dash from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) takes 6.3 seconds; top amphetamine is of 234 km/h (145.4 mph). Medium fire intake is upright 5.7 liters per 100 kilometers (41.3 US mpg), which equates to CO2 emissions of 149 grams per klick (239.8 g/mi). The V6 diesel has been consistently intentional for minimum intimate clash and effective thermic direction. The 3.0 TDI is super tranquil, which is besides due in parting to the switchable hydraulic locomotive bearings. They see that locomotive vibe is low and behavior fiddling disturbance into the car.

The 3.0 TFSI produces 245 kW (333 hp) and 440 Nm (324.5 lb-ft) of torsion, accelerating the big SUV from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 6.1 seconds on its way to a top fastness of 250 km/h (155.3 mph). Its mechanical compressor, which provides charging, is deactivated when operational at portion cargo. This proficiency contributes to the low expenditure of 7.7 liters per 100 kilometers (30.5 US mpg) in the NEDC, comparable to 179 grams CO2 per klick (288.1 g/mi).

A sec version of the 3.0 TDI with 160 kW (218 hp) and 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft) of torsion testament accompany at a ulterior engagement. This efficiency framework testament advance slenderize the CO2 emissions of the 3.0 TDI, circumstance new standards for efficiency.

Another locomotive is the 2.0 TFSI with an turnout of 185 kW (252 hp) and 370 Nm (272.9 lb-ft) of torsion. It is plotted mainly for the Asian markets and the U.S.A.

by wire: the powertrain

Polish, firm, jackanapes and effective. In the new Audi Q7, a fresh highly-developed, eight-speed tiptronic transfers the locomotive’s superpower to the quattro lasting all-wheel crusade arrangement. The torsion convertor transmitting shifts gears swimmingly and is selfsame effective. It offers a free-wheeling purpose when the driver stairs off the gas. A new vaporisation organisation enables the locomotive to run at highly decelerate speeds downstairs 1,000 rpm.

Likewise robotlike fashion, the driver can too prefer to controller the tiptronic victimisation the criterion paddles on the wheel or via a picker jimmy. In both cases, the commands are hereditary strictly electrically (by telegraph).

The self-locking plaza derivative – the pump of the quattro all-wheel campaign organization – is merged into the lodging of the eight-speed tiptronic. It is importantly light and more contract than the transport suit of the former simulation, and with its optimized lockup rates provides for owing grip and manipulation. Nether pattern impulsive weather, the core derivative distributes the index ‘tween the movement and bum axle in a 40:60 proportion. If the wheels of one axle mislay clutch, it can exceedingly apace transference as often as 70 pct of the powerfulness to the movement and a uttermost of 85 pct to the behind.

The mechanical core derivative operates in orchestrate junction with torsion vectoring. During fasting cornering, the command package uses exquisitely metered interventions to bracken the within wheels, which are nether a rock-bottom shipment. This makes the steerage reaction of the big SUV fifty-fifty more quick and exact, and the clench level amend.

Supreme comfort and sporty agility: the chassis

The new Audi Q7 is an highly well-situated comrade. It tracks swimmingly and confidently on the highway and spoils its passengers with a high-pitched story of rolled comfortableness. On twirl interurban roadstead, it is achievable, exact and spry, and it besides keeps passing when the asphalt chicago. Compared with the premature example, the centerfield of multitude of the big SUV has been lowered by 50 millimeters (2.0 in), in share by installment the locomotive depress.

The flesh likewise features legion changes. Both the figurehead and bum axle are five-link designs, replacement the doubling wishbone axles of the premature simulation. The new elastomer bearings and the furcate springs and dampers at the bottom axle reply highly sensitively. Besides new is the electromechanical superpower steerage, whose hike decreases as hurrying increases and is real effective. It provides for aim direction reception, and respective of the driver aid systems would not be potential without it.

2016 Audi Q7

Minus 100 kilograms: strict lightweight construction for chassis

Compared with the former manakin, the build of the new Audi Q7 is complete 100 kilograms (220.5 lb) barge – thanks to many changes. The links of the roll suspensions, e.g., are now made of al and high-strength brand; the cardan shafts of the figurehead axle are empty; and the pin bearings are al forgings.

Top innovation: the new all-wheel steering

Audi offers another innovative foundation as an alternative: all-wheel direction. A steerage organization with an galvanising mandril driving turns the behind wheels inbound by as practically as fin degrees contingent the spot. At low speeds they hint opposition the movement wheels, which importantly increases fomite lightness and reduces the turn spoke by capable one beat (3.3 ft). At higher speeds the bum wheels surveil the crusade of the breast wheels. This boost optimizes steerage reaction, and fomite stableness is boost enhanced in shunning situations.

The new Audi Q7 already offers splendid puff eventide with the measure brand respite. Wheeling is tied sander with the adaptative air reprieve, which is managed by a fresh highly-developed exchange fomite ascendence whole that manages all torso command systems. The new controllers highly-developed by Audi for the air respite and participating damping variegate the consistence acme and superstructure ease as a part of the post. On the highway, the eubstance is lowered by as lots as 30 millimeters (1.2 in). It is elevated as practically as 60 millimeters (2.4 in) when drive at low speeds off-road. A mutant adaptation of the adaptative air respite is besides usable.

As many as seven levels: Audi drive select

The stock Audi effort choose drive kinetics organization workings collectively the adaptative air dangling to whirl seven-spot modes: efficiency (uncommitted first on the Audi Q7), solace, car, dynamical, mortal, allroad and heave/offroad. Contingent the equipment installed, Audi ride prime integrates several engineering modules, including the eight-speed tiptronic, the electromechanical index guidance, the all-wheel direction and the locomotive feature.

The new Audi Q7 comes stock with 18-inch wheels and 235/65 tires. Audi and quattro GmbH crack a battalion of extra wheels in sizes capable 21 inches as options. Enceinte, vented bracken discs land the SUV safely to a stoppage. They are gripped up strawman by aluminium six-piston calipers. The electromechanical emergency, updated with commodious mound clutch and inauguration functions, acts on the arse wheels.

The new Audi Q7 likewise moves with sang-froid done terrain, where the gamey earth headroom of capable 235 millimeters (9.3 in) and prominent axle voice potential cum into gaming. An optional showing shows the driver the tar and bowl angles. An electronic hill-descent attend controls the craved upper.

German customers testament be capable to ordering the Q7 from the bounce of 2015 and it testament be arriving at the dealerships with a wealthiness of measure equipment features in the summertime of 2015. In Germany the Q7 volition be useable start at roughly 61,000 euros.

Plug-in hybrid with quattro all-wheel drive: the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro

Audi is speedily expanding its card of vehicles with potent galvanizing driving systems. These are scheduled to be united by the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro in 2015, when it testament be the humanity’s beginning add-in crossbreed with a six-cylinder diesel and quattro all-wheel driving. Furnished with quattro all-wheel ride, the SUV consumes barely 1.7 liters of fire per 100 kilometers (138.4 US mpg) – for a CO2 eq of less than 50 grams per kilometre (80.5 g/mi). The lithium-ion batteries storehouse 17.3 kWh of vim, enabling a orbit of capable 56 kilometers (34.8 mi) in vestal galvanic modality.

The 3.0 TDI in the Audi Q7 e-tron produces 190 kW (258 hp). The galvanising centrifugal, which is incorporate into the eight-speed tiptronic, has an outturn of 94 kW. Organisation outturn is 275 kW (373 hp); arrangement torsion is 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft). The Audi Q7 e‑tron accelerates with this powerfulness from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 6.0 seconds, and from 0 to 60 km/h (37.3 mph) in 6.1 seconds on wattage unequalled. Top swiftness is 225 km/h (139.8 mph).

The Q7 PHEV is the humanity’s commencement PHEV with a warmth ticker, which minimizes the zip requisite for warming and air conditioning without flexible client quilt. Moreover, the client can preheat or precool the car via an app.
