It does not get bigger than this when it comes to luxury, style, space, performance and thrill than none other than the brand new product from this company, the 2017 Audi Q7. If there is any SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) from Europe, which would be tough enough to match those from the North American giants, then that car would be none other than this pinnacle of German grandeur.
2017 Audi Q7 – Changes
This 2017 version of Audi Q7 will be unveiled in Switzerland, at the Geneva Auto Show, and will be marking off a completely new second gen production line up of cars. The last version of this benchmark cracking SUV has refrained from the need of a redesign, having setting records and defining looks in every single market that it made its presence felt upon. Thus, the manufacturers have wisely connived to bring out a different generation altogether which will see to it that this car keeps on breaking records and setting new trends.
Keeping its base foundation intact, this second generation 2017 version of Audi Q7 comes with an all-embracing and complete redesign. As mentioned before, it is more spacious and luxurious as well as lighter than ever. All these factors combined, helps it to regain the top rung once again in the race among five and seven seat SUVs.
2017 Audi Q7 – Exterior and Interior
Fueling the reputation of this car is:
- Brilliantly laid out premium quality interior.
- Sophisticated and state-of-the-art feel in drive quality.
- The engine. This time the engine comes stronger than ever before with probable fuel economy that can set benchmarks easily.
- Improved amount of space and comfort in third row of seating arrangement.
The Dull Side of Things:
Hindering the name of this 2017 Audi Q7 are the following facts:
- This car lacks the sharpness and the ability to engage the driver.
- Falls behind somewhat when it comes to serious off-road activities, although subject to final assessment.
- Cargo carrying space, once again successfully pulls off disappointment.
Taking a glance at the roof line of this 2017 Audi Q7, one would be able to define something that can be called a ‘canted back’ roof which slopes down towards the end of this SUV. Grille design has been modified up in front and this 2017 version of Audi Q7 shows off a newly designed grill called the single framed grille design. This new grille has been equipped with some thick crossbars and has been given a taste of the art of sculpture. Head lamps are in direct contact with this fabulous and powerful grille design. Head lamps, on their part have also been given a new technology to boast of. Coming with a choice from either Xenon HID technology or simple LED technology or matrix LED technology, it surely has something to be proud of.
Upon having a look inside this ornately designed SUV, one would feel as if he has landed in the cockpit of a sophisticated jet and inside 2017 Audi Q7. Of course a vast array of technology is very good to reckon with but this may somewhat hinder the simplicity and usefulness that many of us crave for. Having said that, the modern, younger generation, which has a vast inherent knowledge about these switches and knobs, would be absolutely thrown off their feet and would be superbly thrilled.
This second generation Audi Q7 will be big enough to house five to seven fully grown adult human beings without much of complaints. The virtual cockpit will be a treat to one’s eyes. Each switch and each knob will be at the driver’s easy reach and will serve a purpose. Premium upholstery is something Audi would be proud of. Safety measures have been a big success since the previous versions with almost same safety measures had been in the news for having saved the day quite a few times.
