The German luxury automaker has announced its refreshed Q7 SUV, with V8 power to remain for SQ7 in 2024
Exact Australian pricing and specification is yet to be revealed, however Audi Australia has confirmed with Chasing Cars that its luxury SUV is set to launch locally during the second quarter of 2024.
Powertrains remain the same as the outgoing 2023 car and, in Europe, include 45 TDI, 50 TDI quattro, 55 TFSI and SQ7 V8 TFSI variants for the 2024 model year.
A full-electric E-Tron variant has not been confirmed as of yet, but could come in the model’s next generation. However, the electric Q8 E-Tron, which rides on the same platform as the Q7, is currently available in Australian showrooms.
Standard specification for the 2024 Audi Q7 will include the following:
The SQ7 performance variant will include additional features such as:
The updated SQ7 performance version will retain its 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged petrol V8 engine that produces 373kW/770Nm and is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system.
A Q7 E-Tron does exist in other markets, however it’s a plug-in hybrid vehicle, rather than full-electric.
