The rehashed and redesigned 2015 Audi Q7 will make its way to India. The quattro SUV is slated to reach our shores somewhere in November of this year. Audi will not be assembling the new Q7 in India for now. This means that the premium SUV from the premium brand will possibly carry a premium price tag. The initial batch of cars will be put together at Audi’s Slovakia plant and then be shipped as CBUs to India. However, it’s only a matter of time before the German carmaker begins local assembly of the new Q7 at its Aurangabad plant.
We reckon the India-bound 2015 Audi Q7 to get a 3.0-litre 6-cylinder diesel engine. This motor churns out 272bhp and 600 Nm of torque. This power is then sent through an 8-speed automatic tranny and sent to the four wheels via the quattro system. The new model benefits from its recent weight saving measures and Audi claims that it is now 26% more efficient overall. At the beginning, the 2015 Q7 will only be sold with the V6 diesel engine. However, the refined and powerful petrol variants should follow suit soon.
The Q7 has shed 325 kg thanks to the new MLB platform.
The Audi will also carry a healthy set of features, including a revised MMI system, air suspension system, Audi Virtual Cockpit, Matrix LED headlight cluster, 4-zone automatic climate control and a premium Bose audio system with 19 speakers. More information will surface soon and we will update you as we get them. In the meanwhile, click here to know more about the 2015 Audi Q7 and here to read our Q7 travelogue.
