Introducing the most powerful diesel SUV in the market, the Audi SQ7. Following the successful SQ5, the SQ7 brings the concept of a diesel engined model to the Q7 range for the first time and offers supreme performance and sporty agility. The new SQ7 has a power output of 435PS, which generates 900Nm of torque - the highest in the Audi range - and allows it to accelerate to 62mph in just 4.8 seconds (preliminary data) on it's way to a governed top speed of 155mph.
The Audi SQ7 is the first series production car to combine turbocharging with an electrically powered compressor which offers an impressive immediate response. The newly developed 4.0TDI engine combines best-in-class performance with low consumption and the electric powered compressor offers support when starting off and accelerating and because it does not need an exhaust-gas energy to develop boost, it can be used at any time. All of this gives the SQ7 immense power with no perceptible lag. A redesigned eight-speed tiptronic is impressively efficient at changing gears while optional driving dynamics package lets the driver experience outstanding handling in any situation.
The SQ7 is the perfect balance of powerful and intensified style elements. A sculpted single frame radiator grille, highlighted wheels and flared quattro-style blisters give it an unmistakable look. All design elements accentuate the width of the car giving it a powerful stance from the front, while the back is set off with an exhaust system that terminates in four rectangular tail pipes. Other notable features are the side air inlets and the mirror housings and door inlay in standard aluminium. The headlights have a three-dimensional appearance with standard LED and optional Matrix LED headlights available along with dynamic rear turn signals.
The Audi SQ7 comes with a choice of five or seven seats, the second row featuring with a three-section backrest with segments that can be folded down separately. The optional third row folds up and down electronically. Technology features heavily with Audi virtual cockpit and MMI navigation plus with MMI all-in-touch available as options along with Audi smartphone interface. Two optional sound systems give the driver a great choice between the Bose Surround Sound System or the Bang & Olufsen Sound System.
There are a total of 24 driver assistance systems inside the SQ7 to ensure the drive is safe, fuel efficient and comfortable. The predictive efficiency assistant provides information in the instrument cluster to help save fuel while the standard Audi pre sense city, which can give warnings and apply an emergency brake to help avoid accidents or protect pedestrians.
