A base 2.0-liter TFSI has been recently announced for the new Q7.

The 2016 Audi Q7 is shown to the public for the first time at the 2015 NAIAS (2015 Detroit Auto Show). The second generation of Audi’s flagship SUV is expected to launch in India by the end of this year.

The new Q7 measures an impressive 5.05 meters in length, 1.97 meters in width, 1.74 meters in height and 2.99 meters in wheelbase. It is based on the MLB Evo platform and is hence 325 kg lighter than the outgoing model.

The 3.0-liter V6 diesel on the other hand, capable of 272 hp and 600 Nm of torque, is 23 percent more efficient.
