With its brand new Q7, Audi has repositioned itself in the crowded luxury sport utility segment, and offers plenty of luxury, refinement, comfort, technology and interior space for the discerning buyer who wants to stand out in the crowd.
Here’s what the media had to say about the new 2017 Audi Q7, starting at $ 67,395 at Glenmore Audi in Calgary.
Three rows, long-distance comfort and panache are all required traits in this class, but the Q7 adds a fourth: agility. The potent and snarling 333-hp 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 drives all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic while the available four-wheel steering and adaptive air suspension help the Q7 remain composed. A high-quality interior spares no details and features the latest in high-tech infotainment, including the optional Virtual Cockpit 12.3-inch driver-facing cluster – Car and Driver
Structurally, the big news is that the Q7 is now built on a multi-material design that uses more ultra-high-strength steel, as well as aluminum castings—and aluminum, exclusively for the front fenders, doors, hood, and hatch. That helps save nearly 500 pounds versus the outgoing version.
The Q7 will launch with only one powertrain: a 3.0 TFSI supercharged gasoline V-6, rated at 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. A short time later there will be versions with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4, while both a new TDI diesel Q7 as well as a Q7 e-tron quattro model (with more than 30 miles of range on a charge and 0-60 mph times of under six seconds) are likely to arrive next model year – The Car Connection
Want a quick, elegant, cat-nimble, relatively fuel-efficient, seven-passenger SUV brimming with useful high-tech features? The redesigned 2017 Audi Q7 delivers—which is why it’s now our top-rated SUV.
