The new Audi Q7 with a curb weight of just 1,995 kilograms (4,398.2 lb) (as 3.0 TDI), is the lightest in the big SUV class. It weighs 325 kilograms (716.5 lb) less than the previous model. With its lightweight, multimaterial body and an all-new chassis, it is comfortable while at the same time offering the typical performance of a sporty Audi – and that with top-notch CO2 values. Audi engineers have reduced the fuel consumption of the Q7 by as much as 28 percent (TFSI) and 23 percent (TDI).
The engines set top marks in the segment of large SUVs with all-wheel drive. The 3.0 TDI with 200 kW (272 hp) and the 3.0 TFSI with 245 kW (333 hp) accelerate the new Audi Q7 from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 6.1 seconds (TFSI) and 6.3 seconds (TDI), respectively. The diesel V6 consumes on average just 5.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (41.3 US mpg), corresponding to 149 grams of CO2 per kilometer (239.8 g/mi).
The Audi Q7 e‑tron quattro, which will be launched a short time later, is the first plug in hybrid from Audi with a diesel engine. It impresses with system 275 kW (373 hp) of system output and a system torque of 700 Nm (516.3 lb‑ft), and is also the world’s first diesel plug‑in hybrid with quattro all‑wheel drive in the premium SUV segment. It consumes just 1.7 liters per 100 kilometers (138.4 US mpg), which corresponds to less than 50 grams CO2 per kilometer (80.5 g/mi). A full battery charge is sufficient for a distance of 56 kilometers (34.8 mi).
The new Q7 is an imposing car with the best height:weight ratio in its class: 5.05 meters (16.6 ft) long, a 2.99 meter (9.8 ft) wheelbase, 1.97 meters (6.5 ft) wide and 1.74 meters (5.7 ft) tall (with steel suspension). Although it is shorter and narrower than its predecessor, the cabin is longer and offers more head room.
Another option is for two individual seats in the third row that are certified as Group 3 child seats. These turn the Audi Q7 into a seven-seater with even greater utility. 24 millimeters (0.9 in) more head room and 20 millimeters (0.8 in) more shoulder room provide for more space. With the seats folded down, the seat backs are integrated into the cargo floor and can be raised or lowered electrically using rocker switches ergonomically located in the area of the C-pillars and in the cargo compartment.
For optimal access to the third row, the seats in the second row can be folded down and tipped up on edge as a compact package, providing an entry width of 376 millimeters (14.8 in). All seats in the second and third rows have Isofix/i-Size fixtures for child seats. Customers can thus mount up to six child seats in the new Audi Q7. Roller blinds and dark “privacy” glazing is optionally available for the rear. The panoramic glass sunroof – another option – makes the generous interior even brighter and airier.
If all seven seats are occupied, the cargo compartment of the new Audi Q7 has a capacity of 295 liters (10.4 cu ft), 770 liters (27.2 cu ft) in load configuration. The five-seater offers 890 liters (31.4 cu ft) and 2,075 liters (73.3 cu ft) with the second row seat backs folded down. To improve the usability of the cargo compartment, the developers lowered the loading lip by 46 millimeters (1.8 in) compared with the previous model.
