The Germans are known for their elegant work in design and production of luxury cars. This time around the world is eagerly waiting for the release of the new 2017 Audi Q7 S Line (SQ7). This will replace the previous model the Q7, which has boasted wonderful specs like the massive v12 engine. However, the SQ7 will feature a rather small engine due to the worldwide emission regulations but more powerful.
2017 Audi Q7 S Line (SQ7) – Design Features:
Audi has gone wild with the styling. Although the SQ7 does copy a lot from its predecessor, a close look will show you subtle differences. First and foremost, the SQ7 is built from an Aluminum intensive platform which strips it off nearly 500 pounds from the previous Q7 and also lowers its center of gravity. This reduction has resulted in better handling giving the driver a whole new driving experience. The car also features standard steel suspensions and adjustable shocks. The car is intelligently designed with the adaptive air suspension that allows one to raise the ride height when driving off-road and lower the ride height when cruising on the highway. The SQ7 is 4-wheel steering which gives the driver better control of the monster SUV, especially when going around corners.
The 2017 Audi Q7 S Line houses a mind-blowing elegant cockpit. It has an analog speed counter with a gray background and white needles. It also features a 12.3-inch display that is full touch and configurable to suit a number of needs like navigation and also has MMI (Multi Media Interface) connectivity. The display mode can be changed with the controls on the steering. The display shows fuel usage, remaining fuel, and mileage, tire pressure among other digital gauges. The seats are all leather, and the floor mats are velour while the dashboard features an A8-style double-inlay design. If you opt for the Audi Connect package, you get to enjoy 4G LTE connectivity as well as Wi-Fi hotspot. You also get the myCarManager feature that facilitates locking and unlocking and displaying the owner’s info on the dash.
2017 Audi Q7 S Line (SQ7) – Engine Types and Specifications:
The 2017 Audi Q7 S Line will feature a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder gasoline turbocharged V6, or a 3.0 liter turbocharged TDIdiesel v6. Both will produce a massive 333 hp at max rpm which is expected to be somewhere between 5500 rpm and 6500 rpm and 325 lb-ft of torque. The transmission will be an 8-speed automatic shift. The car is expected to do 0-60 mph in just 5.7 seconds which are quite impressive for such a massive SUV, which has a towing capacity of 7700 pounds. Considering the current world crisis on energy and climate change, the SQ7 has a good fuel economy and is expected to do 19mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
