2017 Audi Q7 Release Date, Review and Info – Very soon we will get to see the new 2017 Audi Q7 return in action. This is going to be a completely updated vehicle which is going to have a rakish new look with a very detailed inside that is going to be upgraded with a huge technological package. New as well are some chassis advancements that are going to be made which is also going to account for weight loss of this car. Additionally, a plug-in hybrid version is also on its way so people who are interested in that may also enquire about the new powertrain option available with the Q7.
The first generation Q7 has been released in 2007 and was ultimately available in the US immediately. Along the years it received a few facelifts and updates, but nothing major, as it was always the vehicle which managed to set trends and not follow them. The Q7 is characterized by incorporating some truck-like features and some parts that you would rather see in a sports-wagon than in a traditional SUV car. All of this made the popularity of the Q7 vehicle possible and now it is reached its second-generation model with the 2017 version.
The 2017 Q7 luxury crossover car is going to arrive on the market at the very start of 2017. It is still going to have its trademark look and the truck-like features are going to be even more enhanced as the car is supposed to bring us a very positive experience with major additions. Fans are in for a very nice surprise as the updated second-gen model is going to be everything that they have expected and even more. Read this review and find out more about the latest release and study the specs and the newly available pictures.
2017 Audi Q7 exterior
What we can expect with the exterior look of the 2017 Audi Q7 is that it is going to be much more wagon like and a lot less SUV like. This has been the characteristic of the past designs as well, but this time they are taking it a bit further and going on a path that will make these characteristics even more apparent and noticeable. The exterior dimensions are going to be kept the same or at least similar to the first-gen car. There wasn’t really a need of making things larger and elongating anything with the dimensions of the car so it is more than appropriate to keep things the same here. But the design or actually the look is going to change a bit as the vehicle is going to be kept a bit sleeker and will be positioned lower. This is a much better look and goes well with the period. Although the Q7 has always had a contemporary look this one was necessary to make the car competitive on the market for the upcoming year.
The car is also going to receive a more modern package which is going to add more appropriate characteristics for the car. We expect the car to make it big with the newest look and it is going to be one of its better sides of the car. The front part of the car goes through the most significant changes for its brand. The front side receives a new hexagonal grille, which is a trademark of all the current Audi designs. Boasting the front side of the car are the added LED lighting features that provide more clearer and branded look of the car. With the new characteristics added the car is going not only to be a much more modern looking vehicle but will also have more road presence.
The inside of the 2017 Audi Q7 is a very familiar setting. If you have recently used or have been ridden in a newer Audi vehicle you will know what to expect from the newest Q7 car. It adds a very similar kind of a design to all the newest sedan interiors which is a very nice setup for any Audi vehicle. The look is characterized by having wide and thin dashboard and a control setup which is low and sparing looking. All of this allows for much more functionality from the car and makes it much easier for use. The layout of the controls has more logic to it and enables the driver to utilized them with the best possible potential.
The Multi Media Interface is what controls the majority of the vehicle’s setting. It is located on the top center part of the dash and shows you the best way on how to use every part of the car. To help you control everything there is a single high-resolution screen which shows you all the necessary information about the car in any given time. There you will find the date about navigation and your important trip info and also find the traditional looking gauges for the vehicle’s performance rates.
The car is going to be available with two powertrain options, giving the 2017 Audi Q7 more versatility and additionally choices when opting for this type of a car. A 3.0 TFSI supercharged gasoline V-6 is going to be the base version which gives us an output of 333 hp, and the second one is the 3.0 TDI turbodiesel V-6, which makes 272 hp As the plug-in hybrid version is something that is going to be available as well but which will appear a bit later and will receive its very own release date which will come after the initial one. We can expect an e-tron quattro model, which packs the hybrid technology inside the car and combines it with a diesel engine. The car is expected to have an output of 373 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque and will be able to reach 30 miles with a fully charged battery. The 0-60 mph performance is also said to be under six seconds with a top speed of 140 mph.
