2016 Audi Q7 to launch in India on December 10 – IAB Report


Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Initial units will be CBU models.

The next generation 2016 Audi Q7 is scheduled to launch in the Indian market on December 10, several Audi India dealers informed Indian Autos Blog. Initial units will be brought into the country via the CBU route, while locally assembled models could be introduced from next year.
