Audi Q7 Shaves Off Weight yet Adds More Space in 2015

Santa Barbara Auto Group checks out the updated Audi Q7 recently revealed at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. 

audiAudi proudly introduced the new Q7 this year at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, MI.  The Detroit Auto Show is an annual event that gathers thousands of automobile enthusiasts from around the country and the world to preview the latest and best new innovations in the industry.

Featured on January 12, 2015, the Audi Q7 made an impressive impact on event participants.  As the lightest SUV in its class, the Audi Q7 continues to stretch the limits of exceptional automotive engineering.  Thanks to the lighter body (over 716lbs lighter) the new Audi Q7 is more powerful and fuel efficient than ever.

The second-generation Audi Q7 has a lot to offer drivers.  In addition to being the most lightweight  SUV in its market segment, the vehicle offers an array of powerful engine specs, impressive efficiency, and intuitive infotainment and driver controls.   Two unique engines are available in the updated model including:

  • Supercharged 3.0 liter V6 engine with 333-hp
  • V6 TDI Turbo-diesel engine with 272-hp

The supercharged V6 engine provides more power than ever with the 333hp option.  Additionally, the turbo-diesel engine provides a hefty amount of torque and fuel efficiency.  No matter which option you select, the 2016 Audi Q7 delivers the power and performance you expect from the premium luxury brand.

Additionally, the Q7 offers an updated style to which drivers have already responded well.  The new design is 1.5 inches shorter than the first-generation model and nearly a half inch narrower.  However, the interior offers more room between the first and second rows and gives an additional 1.6 inches of headroom.  The interior is light and roomy and elegant finishes surround the driver and passengers.  Pop-up third row seats provide room for extra friends or children to ride along – with space and LATCH seat anchors for child safety seats in every spot.  The middle seat is adjustable to provide the perfect amount of space for passengers.  The exterior of the Q7 was designed to be masculine featuring a sculpted single frame grille, xenon or Matrix LED headlamps, and eye-catching daytime running lights.  There is no doubt, the Audi Q7 will garner a lot of attention on the road!

The 2016 Audi Q7 will be released sometime within this year, and drivers can stay up to date with release details and pricing information by contacting Audi Santa Barbara.
