Q-Auto, the official dealer for Audi in Qatar, finally introduced the brand new Audi Q7 model at an exclusive press launch event held at their main showroom on Salwa Road. During the launch ceremony, Audi Qatar’s brand ambassador – Mohamed Saadon Al Kuwari unveiled the model for the first time with Dealership Principal Ahmed Shariefi, marking the Q7’s official entry into the Qatari market.
With a curb weight of just 1,970 kilograms, the new Audi Q7 is up to 325 kilograms less than the previous model making it one of the lightest in the premium SUV segment. The genuine seven-seater Q7 also boasts the most spacious interior in its class. Passengers enjoy more head, shoulder and knee room, thanks to the adjustable seatbacks for the second row of seat units. Passengers also appreciate an extremely large and useful cargo compartment of 890 litres and an even greater capacity of 2,075 litres if the second row seat backs are folded down.
One of the remarkable features of the all-new Audi Q7 is the range of driver assistance systems, for which the SUV has been awarded the top grade of five stars for safety by the European Euro NCAP consortium. The premium SUV features rear parking assistance, cruise control, an adjustable speed limiter, rest recommendation and an all-new Audi pre-sense city feature. This safety system has been uniquely designed to sense impending collisions, thereby initiating heavy braking in an emergency.
The Audi Q7 also impresses with its second-generation modular infotainment platform as well as the acclaimed Audi virtual cockpit. Passengers now enjoy an unparalleled in-car experience through a range of technology features such as Audi connect, the Audi tablet for the rear seat passengers and the optional Bose or Bang & Olufsen 3D surround sound system entertainment features.
The Audi Q7 exterior design gives the all-new model a presence and style befitting the classic quattro models from Audi through the striking horizontal lines that extend above the wheels. The Single frame grille extends to the headlights, and features either LED or Matrix LED-driven headlights. The SUV’s powerful V6 3.0 TFSI engine yields 333 hp and 440 Nm of torque, producing acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 250 km/h.
