The all-new Q7 is set to launch in Ireland in July with a starting price of €72,975 OTR for 3.0TDI 218 quattro SE, finance will be available from €759 per month with a 4.9% APR rate.

Alison Reede, Head of Business at Audi Centre, said “the all-new Q7 demonstrates Audi's continued commitment to innovation. The enhanced driving experience is delivered thanks to engineering innovations of weight reduction, 'ultra' fuel efficiency technology and quattro technology. Space and practicality are combined with a class-leading interior finish in our most premium SUV"

Efficiency and handling

Weight saving was a primary objective when developing the new model. The all-new Q7 is 325kg lighter, the equivalent of a grand piano, and with “ultra" engine technology is also 26% more efficient than its predecessor. The 3.0TDI 218 quattro variant consumes just 5.7 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres on average, or 149 grams of CO2 per kilometre.

Audi's quattro all-wheel drive technology is standard across the range and offers more grip, increased traction and enhanced driving performance. The drive select system lets the driver alter their operating characteristics across seven driving modes: auto, comfort, efficiency, dynamic, individual as well as the new off-road and off-road lift modes.

Inside and out

The all-new Q7 boasts an extremely spacious interior with 770 litres of luggage room. With only the front seats occupied, this space can be increased to 1,955 litres while the powered opening and closing tailgate allows easier access. With seven seats as standard, the second row seats offers a tilt-and-fold function and the two third row seats can be easily stowed using a power folding mechanism to maximise luggage room.

The exterior of the Q7 has a striking design with a large 3D hexagonal single-frame grille flanked by double-arrow design Xenon plus headlights and new 18-inch design alloy wheels. LED lights with high-beam assist are standard on the S line model and Matrix LEDs are also available as an option. The SE Business and S line version also boast 19-inch and 20-inch alloy wheels respectively.

Innovation

The new Audi Q7 offers a cutting-edge technological interface with the MMI navigation plus system and a new intelligent search interface through and intuitive touchpad or voice control. An 8.3-inch retractable TFT display features on the dash and the much acclaimed virtual cockpit comes as standard on SE Business and S line models.

Audi connect links the new Q7 to the internet via 4G or LTE standard (where available) and lets the driver use apps such as Google Earth, Google Street View and Facebook. Passengers can long on to on-board WiFi which offers download speeds of up to 100Mbps. Additionally, optional equipment includes a 3D sounds system by Bose and Bang & Olufsen and wireless smartphone charging via Audi phone box, some of which are contained within the new Technology pack available across all versions.

The Q7 will be available to order in two 3.0 engine models from May: the 3.0TDI 272ps and 3.0 TFSI 333ps with first deliveries beginning in July. Initial customer deliveries of the 3.0TDI 218ps variants are set for Q4 2015.
