The latest Audi Q7 makeover is appealing yet familiar with laser headlights and the Spotify App
This indicates that the Q7, now somewhat long in the tooth, will stay longer with us. A negative? Not necessarily. The Q7 maintains its status as one of the more appealing options in its class, particularly now, combining the latest features with proven drivetrain technology.
The "new" Q7 is primarily distinguishable by its revamped, massive "Singleframe" radiator grille, alongside significant air intakes (or rather, their facsimiles) situated at the sides of the bumper. The headlights are also new, although not immediately noticeable. They employ projection laser technology, a hallmark feature of the latest Audi models.
At the rear of the vehicle, not a lot has changed. Apart from a new light signature and an updated bumper, no additional alterations can be seen. The same applies for the interior, overrun by touchscreens. It is, however, worth mentioning that Audi has upgraded the multimedia system, now including a Spotify music application.
Other standard facelift changes include new wheel designs, available in sizes from 19 to 22 inches, as well as new body colors such as Ascari Blue, Sakhir Gold, or Chili Red.
No revelations are to be found under the hood, which car traditionalists might appreciate. They will likely applaud the three-liter turbo diesel engine producing 228 or 282 horsepower, and the TFSI gasoline engine of the same size outputting 335 horsepower. The range also includes the high-end SQ7; housing a twin-turbo V8 that boasts a staggering 500 horsepower. Further price information and detailed specifications will be released in the forthcoming months.
