New Model Audi Q7 spied in Mumbai; Will be launched in India in November this year
The new model Audi Q7 2016 was revealed at the NAIAS 2015 (aka Detroit Auto Show) and Audi India is readying the new generation model for its Indian innings. Recently, Team Car Blog India spotted a 2016 Audi Q7 test mule in Mumbai and while the new gen Q7 is only some months away from its India launch, we believe that the test mule we spotted is a part of Audi’s global testing program. It must be noted that the VW-owned premium car manufacturer has a history of testing its new cars on Indian soil. Here, in this post, we have put together all the important details on the new model Audi Q7 and its India launch details.
Launch in India
Rumours abound that the new model Audi Q7 will be launched in India towards the end of this year. While there hasn’t been any sort of official confirmation from Audi India on this, our guess is that the 2016 Q7 will be launched in late-October/early-November.
Here are our latest spy pics of the upcoming model –
The 2016 Q7 boasts of Audi’s latest design language and gets the hexagonal Singleframe chrome grill for its front fascia. While the side profile remains similar to that of the old model, Audi has done enough to inject a dose of freshness into the front- and rear-end. On the inside, the car gets new design panels and the dashboard is characterized by the new Audi Virtual Cockpit instrument display and 2015 Passat-like aircon vents.
The new model Q7 is 5.05 metres long, 1.97 metres wide and 1.74 metres tall. It has a wheelbase of 2.99 m and the new model is based on the new MLB Evo platform. The new Q7 is also lighter by up to 325 kgs! Audi claims that the fuel efficiency has risen by a whopping 26%!
While engine options for India haven’t been disclosed, the new Q7 has got a 3.0-litre TFSI petrol and a set of TDI diesel engines for the international markets. All the engine variants get the Quattro AWD system as standard.
