2022 Audi Q7 facelift will be available in two different variants
As Audi is set to reveal the prices of the Q7 facelift later this month, bookings for the luxury SUV have already begun in the country. The new Q7 will be available in two variants – Premium Plus and Technology, and can now be booked against a payment of Rs. 5 Lakh.
The new-gen Q7 will be introduced as a petrol-only model, and will come via the Completely Knocked Down (CKD) route. Audi had discontinued the model from the Indian market during the BS6 transition in 2020.
2022 Audi facelift: What To Expect?
The first striking change on the new Audi Q7 is the new larger octagonal, single-frame grille, reworked DRL design, updated tail lamps, revised bumpers, a new set of alloy wheels, etc. The overall aesthetics have had a leap ahead. The new Q7 will also be longer than the outgoing model by 11mm, spanning a good 5,063 mm in the overall length. Even though the global Q7 launched in 2019 gets HD Matrix LED headlights with laser light tech, it remains to be seen if these would make their way to India.
On the inside, the cabin gets a new set of screens, gloss black treatment on the dashboard, stylish Aluminum and Chrome touches at multiple spots, making it more livable. It will get a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, an 8.6-inch screen for air-con controls, 4 zone climate control, 360 camera, automatic parking, panoramic sunroof etc.
Under the hood, the 2022 Audi Q7 gets a 340hp, 3.0-litre V6 turbo-petrol unit. This is the same engine from Audi’s Q8 and A8L models. The gearbox is an 8-speed torque converter automatic. Upon its arrival, Audi Q7 will be battling rivals like BMW X5, Volvo XC90, and Mercedez Benz GLE.
