The Q7 gets a brand new interior with Audi’s latest generation technology with its digital layout dual-touchscreen found in the latest-gen Audi models like the A8, A7, Q8 models. Audi also claims that the interior has been re-engineered to provide just a little bit more space in the cabin for occupants. The updated SUV gets kitted out with technology like the MMI navigation and Audi Connect which has Amazon’s Alexa inbuilt and can provide traffic information. It has a feature called Car-to-X communication which allows it to communicate with the local region’s infrastructure real-time traffic light information which will be rolled out in certain markets eventually.

While there are a few engine options on offer, the new Q7 will come most likely with a diesel and petrol engine options with a DSG automatic. However, all engines on offer will be equipped with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system. Which is significant is the new suspension setup in the Q7 which now comes with active roll stabilization which it borrows from the SQ7 and will be offered as an option. Audi is also expected to introduce a plug-in hybrid version of the Q7 which will probably debut later.
