Perhaps its swan song before the next gen Q7 launches in India next year.
Audi India has given its flagship SUV, the Q7, minor feature changes. The SUV, which is available in three variants, will now feature a panoramic sunroof and a reverse steering guidance system as standard.
Further, the top-end Technology trim will see the inclusion of the S-Line bodykit complete with sportier front and rear bumpers, side skirts and 19-inch alloy wheels. The company has increased prices of the SUV as well.
- Audi Q7 3.0 Premium – INR 64.5 lakhs
- Audi Q7 3.0 Premium Plus – INR 70.01 lakhs
- Audi Q7 3.0 Technology – INR 79.93 lakhs
- Audi Q7 4.2 Technology – INR 87.93 lakhs
Note: Prices are ex-Showroom, Mumbai
The Q7 is offered with a 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine or a 4.2-liter V8 diesel. Both engines get an 8-speed automatic transmission and Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system. The Q7 in India is assembled at the carmaker’s Aurangabad facility.
Globally, Audi is readying the next generation of the Q7 which is due to launch in Europe next year. Built on the modular MLB platform, the SUV is reported to shed nearly 360 kg in weight compared to the current model.
