2016 Audi Q7
This SUV first made its public appearance at the 2005, Frankfurt Motor Show and since then it has become one of the most popular SUV’s from the German auto manufacturer Audi; known for its spacious and comfortable interiors and powerful engine options the Q7 truly is one worthy Crossover which went on sale in the International markets from 2006. It is definitely not a hardcore offroader like the Land Rover SUV’s but it surely comes with the Quattro all wheel drive system which makes things comfortable for the person driving the SUV when they run out of tarmac.
The Q7 was first product from the ‘Q series’ and its popularity inspired Audi to launch some more products and thus the Q5 joined the ‘Q’ bandwagon in 2009 which was later followed by the smaller and more affordable Q3 back in 2011. Recently the other German auto giants like BMW and Mercedes updated their Crossover portfolio and in order to stay in the competition Audi too had to update their first generation Q7, although they launched a facelift version back in the year 2009 which came with minor tweaks on both its interior as well exterior.
Things has changed a lot since 2006, back then people used to prefer heavy and bulky SUV’s and they actually didn’t worried a lot about the fuel consumption level but times has changed fuel prices has gone up and now everybody wants a SUV which not only will provide them comfortable ride quality but also should handle well and above all should be fuel efficient at the same time. So in order to meet their customers’ demands Audi went with the flow and tried to reduce the overall weight of this new generation Q7 by adding lot of lightweight materials in its construction and now the Q7 actually weighs 325 Kilograms less than its predecessor which also has effected in its fuel efficiency figures. Believe it or not but the new Q7 is 26 percent more efficient. The Q7 is offered with both diesel TDI and Petrol TFSI engine options about which we will discuss in this review.
