Facelifted Audi Q7 spied during winter testing
Exterior alterations to the new Q7 aren’t particularly dramatic. The front bumper has adopted the design of the larger Q8, with a shallower front grille and more defined side intakes. Also, the rear bumper now hides the exhaust tips under the body.
Its LED headlights and tail-lights appear to have been borrowed from the current generation Audi Q8. As the Q7 and Q8 share the same MLB Evo platform, we expect more parts-sharing to occur between the models, with the smaller SUV borrowing the flagship’s dual 12.3-inch infotainment displays and driver convenience systems.
A range of engines will likely be available, including a four-cylinder 2.0-litre petrol, a six-cylinder 3.0-litre petrol and a six-cylinder 3.0-litre diesel. A 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 diesel will sit at the top of the range in a new RS Q7 model, with around 430bhp and 900Nm of torque.
