German luxury car maker Audi on the 4th of September announced the launch of the Audi Q7 40 TFSI Quattro in India for Rs 67,76,000. The car is available in two trims, the Premium Plus edition and the fully loaded Technology edition.
The 2.0 TFSI engine churns out 252hp and 370 Nm of torque and clocks 0 to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds. The engine is mated to an Eight-speed tiptronic transmission. The Audi Q7 also features a lightning-fast power redistribution through quattro permanent all-wheel drive, segment first Audi Virtual Cockpit and a smart Audi Smartphone Interface.
The car is already available in India with a 3.0 TDI engine which is no different from the new petrol version in the terms of design and functionality. The car also features an adaptive suspension along with the electromechanical power steering and shift paddles. Some comfort features in the Q7 include a high-end infotainment system, four-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, auto park assist and eight airbags among the other features.
“Our flagship SUV Audi Q7 had been the only product in its segment in India when it was launched. With the introduction of the Audi Q7 40 TFSI quattro, we are now offering customers an exciting line up of their preferred SUV to choose from and own their favorite Audi. This marks the debut of the first-ever luxury SUV in its segment in India and reigning segment leader with a petrol engine,” said Rahil Ansari, Head, Audi India.
“We have taken a strategic decision to increase our petrol mix and started off the process with the launch of the Audi Q3 1.4 TFSI in March this year. We do have some other surprises planned for this year,” added Ansari.
