After we saw the brand new RS3 Sportback, it is time to take a look at another brand new model: this is the 2016 Audi Q7! As you can see from the photos, the new Q7 follows the same design line as the previous model but is also inspired by the new models from Audi.
The front end is dominated by the Singleframe grille as well as by the LED headlights, while the rear end shows redesigned taillights inspired by those found on the previous model.
The interior shows a simple design, featuring a three-spoke steering wheel, a digital instrument cluster as well as a retractable display.
There are no details about the engines that will power the all-new Q7, but we expect to see the 3.0-liter TDI clean diesel biturbo developing 320 hp (235 kW) as well as a 3.0-liter TFSI petrol engine that generates up to 333 hp (245 kW). A bigger 4.2-liter V8 TDI is also expected to be offered with 385 hp (283 kW) and 850 Nm of torque.
Audi will also offer a high-performance SQ7 using the technology found on the RS5 TDI, which means it will feature a 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine and an electric turbocharger.
The big surprise will be the Audi Q7 e-Tron, company’s first plug-in hybrid diesel model. According to several sources, the Q7 e-Tron will be powered by a 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine and an electric motor.
