2024 Audi Q7 debuts with new lights


Audi has updated the Q7 lineup for 2024 with styling and technology upgrades. Prices in Germany start at €79,300 for the 45 TDI quattro, €82,300 for the 50 TDI quattro, €82,500 for the 55 TFSI quattro, and €112,000 for the SQ7 TFSI.

So, what’s new? Well, on the front, you can see that the so-called Singleframe grille has been revised; the optional Black and Black Plus optics packages not only make the grille dark but also the inserts on the bumper and side windows. Also, notice that the front bumper has been redesigned as well, while the rear-end remains mostly unchanged.

There are new wheel designs too, ranging from 20- to 22-inches; Black Metallic, Gray Silk Matte with glossy black inlays or diamond-cut Black Metallic are available for 21-inch wheels and larger. The V6-powered base model rides on 19-inch alloy wheels. As for body colors, the metallic options now include Sakhir Gold, Ascari Blue, and Chili Red. To distinguish the base model and S line exterior package, parts of the front bumper, door trim, and diffuser in the base model come in contrasting colors.

LED headlights come standard. However, the ones featured here are the optional HD Matrix LED headlights with Audi laser light; the laser light becomes active above 70 km/h (43.5 mph), significantly increasing the high beam range. For the rear, you can have the OLED taillights for extra money; these feature four light signatures.

As for the suspension, the Q7 features electronically controlled air suspension with a continuously adaptive damping system. A sporty version of this called the adaptive air suspension sport is standard on the SQ7 TFSI but is optionally available on other variants. Depending on the driving situation or driver preferences, the air suspension can adjust the ride height by up to 90 mm.

As for the inside, new decorative inlays have joined the choices list: Natural Elm Burl Silver for the base model, Matte Carbon Twill, and Matte Brushed Aluminum with linear embossing in silver for the Q7 with the S line sport package, as well as for the SQ7 TFSI.

As part of the model update, Audi is also expanding the range of apps: for the first time, passengers can directly use popular apps from third-party providers (for example Spotify or Amazon Music). As for the driver assistance systems, the surroundings display in particular is receiving an upgrade. Among other things, the Audi virtual cockpit displays a lane change warning, other road users (trucks, cars, and motorcycles), distance warning, intersection assist, and traffic light info.


Moving on to the juicy bits of the story, the 45 TDI quattro is powered by a 3.0L V6 engine that offers 170 kW (231 metric hp) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft), enabling a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of 7.1 seconds and a top speed of 226 km/h (140 mph). The 50 TDI quattro is also powered by the same engine, but offers 210 kW (285.5 metric hp) and 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft), enabling a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of 6.1 seconds and a top speed of 241 km/h (150 mph).

The 55 TFSI packs a 3.0L V6 engine with 250 kW (340 metric hp) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft). This variant is claimed to sprint from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.6 seconds and on to a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). All the aforementioned engines work together with an 8-speed tiptronic, quattro permanent four-wheel drive, and a 48-volt mild-hybrid system.

The big daddy SQ7 packs a 4.0L V8 TFSI motor with 373 kW (507 metric hp) and 770 Nm (568 lb-ft). The official 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time is 4.1 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). With a firing order of 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8, the V8 should offer a distinctive sporty and sonorous sound. This variant also comes with an electromechanical active roll stabilization (eAWS), powered by a 48-volt supercapacitor.
