AUDI has upgraded its flagship Q7 large SUV with a refreshed design and enhanced technology.
The redesigned exterior features new front and rear sections and space for up to seven passengers.
For the first time in a Q7 SUV, the HD Matrix LED headlights with laser as an additional high beam feature digital daytime running lights with selectable light signatures.
Digital OLED rear lights with four selectable rear light designs complete the lighting technology upgrade.
UK sales of the enhanced Q7 SUV line-up will begin in March, with prices starting at £66,605 and first customer deliveries are expected in May.
Enhancements have also been made to the driver assistance systems, chiefly the Audi virtual cockpit, which now displays a lane change warning, other road users, distance warning, intersection assist, and traffic light info online in full HD quality.
Three core trim levels are available across the Q7 line-up: S line, Black Edition, and Vorsprung. An exclusive Launch Edition will be available in limited numbers from the market introduction, sitting between the Black Edition and the Vorsprung model.
Standard equipment across the line-up includes quattro all-wheel drive, adaptive air suspension, Matrix LED headlamps, a rear view camera, Valcona leather upholstery, electrically adjustable heated front sports seats with 'S' embossed logo, Audi Viritual cockpit, climate control, and privacy glass. Stepping up to Black Edition brings larger 21-inch matt dark grey Audi Sport wheels, sport adaptive air suspension, and a black high gloss package plus with black rings.
Highlights of the flagship Vorsprung trim include HD Matrix LED headlamps with Audi laserlight, a panoramic roof, all-wheel steering, and larger 22-inch black metallic Audi Sport wheels. Inside, an extended leather pack, a premium sound system, four-zone climate control, a head-up display, and front seat ventilation and massage functions are fitted as standard.
The new Q7 range is now priced from £71,155 in Black Edition specification, £89,805 in Vorsprung trim and £92,420 for SQ7 Black Edition models with the line up topping out at £111,370 for a SQ7 Vorsprung.
