Audi Q7 big pileup relaunched late last year, replacing four thin-water, less launched by former boxer.
Interestingly, it was not just the individual variant, a V6 turbo diesel 200 kW, with a starting price of six figures. A few months on the track it has, finally, a lower power, entry-level Q7 noted.
With a price of only a few thousand down in the original version of 200 kW, it almost seems that Audi does not really want you to buy the base model. The price difference is “only” US $ 7,600. Remember that little.
The new Q7 is fortunately much less imposing than the first generation. This drive actually made and tear over time has become increasingly covered with glitter. The new car restraint is admirable (and a good deal – is bound to be a great Q8 soon) and looks more like a wagon kidnapped a full-on SUV.
As usual Audi, there are plenty of aluminum, especially in the own chassis Evo MQB (shared with some very clever things, like the Bentley Bentayga), as well as doors and hood.
Eight airbags, blind spot sensors, front collision prevention, forward collision warning, departure warning alert range rear cross-traffic and active safety hood beyond the maximum five-star ANCAP safety.
The aid package, which adds control adaptive cruise, lane active assist, before the pre-sense (to avoid crashing into the car in front) helps collision (helps you with your braking and steering when the car I which will in an accident) and help turn (stops become the path of an oncoming vehicle).
Audi MMI system controls the operation of the 8.3-inch retractable screen that rises majestically from the center of the board. MMI deals with entertainment, satellite navigation and various car settings and does a good job, complemented by a generous touchpad for you to write your destination with your finger, or choose your radio station.
You can also talk terms reasonably normal through the nav voice activation and that will take you to the nearest public toilet, or a gas station or a restaurant in the Italian nearby.
It could be up to 40 kW and 100 Nm of torque, but the Q7 still feels very responsive to what is a very heavy car, despite its average weight loss of 325 kg. The midrange is very strong, which means that they rarely easily from more than one toe on the accelerator pedal. If the car is so great, the last thing you want to worry about is tripping yourself when you are in giving and receiving school collection or commuting.
The Q7 is an excellent 200kW and 160kW car is a little different. It is difficult to make economic justification for spending less, although as options quickly to land on the territory 200kW price unless of course you have stretched yourself for US $ 96,300 first.
If you stretch, you are getting a car in general, even better than the excellent BMW X5. The foundations of the Q7 are such that you could almost hit the 2.0 TFSI A3 it and still look good.
