Debuting also in this year’s Detroit Motor Show was the new Audi Q7 2015 vehicle. What is interesting about this car is that it has lost a ton of weight since its first model has hit the stands way back in the past. But is it really going to hit the heights as Audi is expecting it to achieve with really mediocre looks which the vehicle is coming out it.
All the reviews before the show didn’t give much to the car, making it a news but not as a booming one which was firstly expected to be. What is interesting about this SUV, on the other hand, is its fuel economy. Due to the light weights of the vehicle the car’s fuel economy is off the charts, but seeing that the price of gas has reduced now it does not make much for the fans to go nuts over this vehicle, particularly in the performance-filled lineup featured at this year’s Detroit Show.
Also announced is the plug-in hybrid diesel variant which will come out shortly after the market release of the Q7, scheduled for spring of 2015. This is an interesting concept of the Audi Q7, which may become a good one as the fans are getting more interested in this concept of the car instead of the newly released one.
Audi Q7 2015 Exterior
What the design of the exterior for the 2015 Audi Q7 brings to us is a completely different look from the previous model. The car is now shorter and narrower but oddly enough keeps the same height as before. Some have even compared to look a bit as a Subaru Forester vehicle, at least at a glance actually.
Audi’s chief designer has recently announced that all of the upcoming Audi vehicles are going to have an updated grille which will be positioned lower. No lie there as the Q7 now features a wider single-frame grille fitted much lower than before. Also added are the new LED headlights which are seen in the A8 or from the Audi Matrix technology.
Nevertheless, despite all of the changes of the vehicle’s look, the Q7’s exterior design is perhaps its greatest drawback. Many fans agree that the previous model was actually perfect and that the upgrade is perhaps a down-grade for the Audi Q7 brand.
As for the inside of the car is concerned, it is in much higher praise than the outside. A review of the 2015 Audi Q7’s interior tells us that the car has a higher quality and also sports some new technological features inside of it. The first noticeable thing is the new dashboard which has been separated horizontally which two disguising colors.
The cabin is actually a bit shorter than before, but surprisingly offers a lot more space. It even has an optional third row of seats which is labeled as for kids, or is grade 3 certified. More space is a good thing for any car as the vehicle now features better comfort and comfortable seating arrangement.
Included in the technology department is the MMI navigation plus infotainment system. Also upgraded connectivity is given via LTE which enables the Q7 to easily connect on the internet in no time. There are many other add-ons inside which feature many entertainment and driving upgrades which will bolster the vehicle’s overall grade.
As we mentioned a more fuel efficient car, this was achieved by first substituting the old V8 engine, which the previous model used, with three different trims. The first one includes a .0-liter supercharged V-6 model engine which has the capacity of achieving 280-horsepower. Then there is the 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V-6 which all of the TDI models get. And a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 which is included in the S-line models with some extra power which comes down to 333 of horsepower.
This setup is actually fun to drive as the people have stated, and with the quattro all-wheel drive it is more than a reliable engine setup for the Q7 vehicle. With the increased fuel-economy of the vehicle this will make this SUV vehicle one of the cheapest for maintenance on the market.
Price of Audi Q7 2015
When it comes down to the price of the new Audi Q7 2015 vehicle it all depends on the trim and the model of the vehicle. For the base model you will need to come up with a figure of 49,662 dollars, while if you would like some more power and additional features and would like to go for, let’s say an S-line model, a figure of 49,662 dollars comes into play then.
