The expectations for the 2011 Audi Q7 are quite high. Therefore, the engineers and designers of this new model also increase their performance. On the exteriod end, this one is rather large for a crossover SUV. It comes with a longer wheelbase and can therefore accommodate up to 7 passengers overall. The exterior wheels range in size between 18 and 21 inches in size but it could largely depend on the trim level options. Other notable exterior features for this vehicle are heated sideview mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, two-tone or monochromatic exterior paints, and xenon headlights, to name a few. The bumpers for this model has been slightly varied to introduce a sleeker design to facilitate better air intake.
As for the interior, the 2011 Audi Q7 is built with superior quality materials. Hence, you an enjoy a totally comfortable ride with a slew of infotainment features to suit modern drivers. Standard features remain such as automatic climate control, heated front seats, and leather upholstery. Meanwhile, you can also incorporate upgrades into the sound system and incorporate a navigation system.
But practical consumers are looking more closely on the performance data for the 2011 Audi Q7, though. This one incorporates an all-new 2.0-liter TFSI engine that can produce up to 210 horsepower and excellent torque performance. Those who are expecting to get the V12 TDI engine that was available in previous models are in for a disappointing news since it has been completely revamped.
All engine choices for this year’s edition of the Q7 will slightly suffer from the size and weight of this SUV. Hence, its acceleration capacity that enables it to reach 60 mph in 8 seconds is not as impressive as some other SUVs in the market. Whichever type of engine or trim level you choose though, it will offer a six-speed automatic transmission. In terms of fuel economy rating, this one delivers numbers quite impressive among its class, which is at 14 mpg in the city and 21 mpg in the highway.
The Audi Q7 SUV vehicle range has introduced a whole new concept in this particular niche in the market ever since production for this model began.
