OVERVIEW 2014 Audi Q7

2014 Audi Q7

Luxury infused with performance, that is how Audi’s biggest SUV is built. Audi Q7 has always been regarded as a soft-roader or more of a family vehicle with long wheel base and not so potent all-wheel-drive system.

The Q7 is for people who likes to travel with their families or just want a huge empty personal space around them loaded with latest gadgets and leather. The extra wheelbase increases the ride quality of the vehicle along with the comfort. With aids like on-the-road stability and traction, the Q7 can easily take on highways with blanket of snow or go a little off the road to give you some adventure if not all of them.

2012 Audi Q7 V12

2012 Audi Q7 V12

Some would argue that 1000Nm of torque on an SUV makes it equivalent to a sportscar. There is undeniable reason to this and theAudi Q7 V12 is the emperor of excess. Currently it is the 4.2-litre TDI producing 340PS and 760Nm of torque that is the flagship model of the Q7 but Audi by the end of the year plans to launch a 6-litre, V12 variant of the Q7. Such presence this model will command that it would make even the Range Rover seem petite. When launched, the V12 would cost around 1crore and this car is so far over the top that it’s perfect for those looking for some guilty pleasure. With menace in looks and intent in its eyes, this SUV is some product.

Audi to launch Q7 with V12 engine in India

Audi to launch Q7 with V12 engine in India

Audi has confirmed that it would be launching the Q7 with a V12 diesel engine in India. The SUV with the V12 engine would be launched later in the year and would be priced around 1 crore. The 6-litre, V12 TDI, produces 500PS and an insane 1000Nm of torque between 1750 to 3250rpm. Audi claims that the crankcase is made of a secret material which allows it to be strong, light and compact. The crankshaft is made of chromium molybdenum steel and the pistons are made from aluminium. The manufacturer claims100kmph to be reached in 5.5seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 250kmph.

To make this V12 variant special Audi has added bits like the alcantara and brushed aluminium trimmings and you can order the Q7 with a fully leather-wrapped cabin. There is also an option of ordering the rear loading bay with wood like deck of a yacht.

Audi has also stiffened the suspension and the Audi Q7 V12 TDI features ceramic brakes, which are extremely sensitive to dust. Using these brakes in India would be a bit of a problem and Audi engineers would have to sort this out since these brakes are standard on the V12 variant. Fuel efficiency also isn’t bad and the manufacturer claims 8kmpl. The V12 TDI would be a CBU and the launch would not be before the second half of the year.

OVERVIEW 2011 Audi Q7

2011 Audi Q7

We don’t have the exact figures to back our claim but there is no arguing the fact that over 90 percent of all Audi Q7 owners in India have never taken this SUV even for mild off road challenges. To many that would be killing the whole purpose of having a SUV in the first place. Driving it from work to office and then to an up market restaurant for dinner isn’t what Audi had designed the Q7 for. Or did it? The SUV’s we drive have become softer by the passing year as our requirements from our vehicles change. While more and more of us are confined to urban surroundings, we don’t need a SUV capable of driving us up to the ‘Road of bones’ in Siberia. SUV’s today have dynamically evolved offering comfort and space as oppose to their original ‘go-any-where’ ability. The Audi Q7 then is every bit the SUV that we require today. In India the Audi Q7 is available with two diesel and a petrol engine with a starting price of Rs55,53,570 ex-showroom New Delhi.
