New Audi Q7 India

Similar to the old model, the second generation Audi Q7 will also be assembled at the company's Aurangabad facility

The much-awaited new-generation Audi Q7 was finally launched in India on Thursday at a starting price of Rs 72 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Similar to the old model, the second generation Audi Q7 will also be assembled at the company's Aurangabad facility. Though it will be brought as a completely built up unit initially.

Though the overall shape of the new-generation Audi Q7 looks largely identical to the old model, it has gone sharper than before with an all-new single piece grille, Matrix LED head-lamps, all-new bumpers, rectangular LED tail-lamps, new LED tail-lamps, etc. The vehicle has also gone smaller in dimension with 37mm less length and 15mm less width. Weighing 325 lighter than the old-gen model, thanks to the updated MLB platform, the new Audi Q7 is claimed to be quicker and more fuel-efficient than the discontinued version.

There are changes made to the cabin as well, as the new Audi Q7 receives an updated dashboard, a new gear lever, new infotainment display and all-new centre console. The Audi Q7 features a 3.0-litre, V6 diesel engine that produces a maximum power output of 272bhp and a peak torque of 600Nm. Transmitting power to all four-wheels via Audi's Quattro all-wheel drive system is an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
