Expected Price: Rs 60-80 lakh
Expected Time of Launch: Mid 2015
Although Audi has just revealed the next-generation Audi Q7 and it has already been spotted testing in India. The new model gets sharper body creases and a more aggressive stance than before. Also new are the more prominent wheel arches, redesigned tail lamps and bumpers and new alloy wheels. The new Q7 will also get an arrow shape daytime running light combined with sportier hexagonal exhaust tips.
The biggest change in the new generation Audi Q7 is its 325kg lighter weight than its forbearer, which also helps improve fuel economy by up to 26 per cent more. The second generation Audi Q7 will be available with a 3.0-litre TDI oil-burner capable of 272PS of peak power and 600Nm of maximum torque. Also, expect a slightly detuned variant of the 3.0-litre TDI engine producing 218PS and 500Nm of torque to be launched a little later.
The new generation Audi Q7 will be brought in India by late 2015. Once launched, it will take on the likes of BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GL Class and the new Volvo XC90. Unlike the current Audi Q7 which is assembled in Audi India at their Aurangabad plant, the next generation Audi Q7 will be imported as a CBU initially.
