The Audi disdainful operation offers many additional customization options.
Even some-more room than in a prior model: The space concept
With a longest cabin in a category notwithstanding shorter extraneous length, a new Audi Q7 offers some-more space than a predecessor. Passengers suffer some-more head, shoulder and knee room. The space judgment is rarely variable. Audi provides an intensely gentle three-seat territory with tractable seatbacks for a second row. If desired, all 3 seats can any be changed longitudinally adult to 110 millimeters (4.3 in), 10 millimeters (0.4 in) some-more than before.
Another choice is for dual particular seats in a third quarrel that are approved as Group 3 child seats. These spin a Audi Q7 into a seven-seater with even incomparable utility. 24 millimeters (0.9 in) some-more control room and 20 millimeters (0.8 in) some-more shoulder room yield for some-more space. With a seats folded down, a chair backs are integrated into a bucket building and can be lifted or lowered electrically regulating rocker switches ergonomically located in a area of a C-pillars and in a bucket compartment.
For optimal entrance to a third row, a seats in a second quarrel can be folded down and sloping adult on corner as a compress package, providing an entrance breadth of 376 millimeters (14.8 in). All seats in a second and third rows have Isofix/i-Size fixtures for child seats. Customers can so mountain adult to 6 child seats in a new Audi Q7. Roller blinds and dim “privacy” glazing is optionally accessible for a rear. The breathtaking potion sunroof – another choice – creates a inexhaustible interior even brighter and airier.
If all 7 seats are occupied, a bucket dungeon of a new Audi Q7 has a ability of 295 liters (10.4 cu ft), 770 liters (27.2 cu ft) in bucket configuration. The five-seater offers 890 liters (31.4 cu ft) and 2,075 liters (73.3 cu ft) with a second quarrel chair backs folded down. To urge a usability of a bucket compartment, a developers lowered a loading mouth by 46 millimeters (1.8 in) compared with a prior model. A appetite back induce is standard. In mixed with a modernized key, Audi also offers gesticulate control – a kicking suit in a core next a back induce and a induce opens automatically. The same feet gesticulate can also be used to tighten a induce again.
A series of other options are accessible for creation interactions with a vast SUV unsentimental and convenient: a appetite bucket dungeon cover, appetite doorway closers and a exhilarated windshield.
Fewer buttons for optimal ergonomics: Operation and display
All controls are framed in glorious aluminum lines. They orchestrate ideally with a pattern – a reduced series of buttons while during a same time charity optimal ergonomics. Front chair choices are customary seats, customary seats with meridian function, competition seats, competition seats with pneumatics and a tradition contour seat. The pattern of a second and third quarrel can be blending to a variants comparison for a front seats.
The front seats offer motorist and newcomer copiousness of space and comfort. Among a chair variants offering by Audi in a new Q7 are a multi-adjustable competition chair and a climate-controlled particular contour chair with adult to 18 adjustments and discretionary massage function. The latter includes 5 conflicting programs, any with a choice of 5 appetite levels.
Newly developed: Deluxe atmosphere conditioning
Audi equips a vast SUV customary with a newly developed, two-zone glorious atmosphere conditioning system. Its new doing judgment uses fewer buttons and controls. Animated black in a display, a high-quality TFT arrangement and a capacitive toggle switches yield for perceptive operation of a atmosphere conditioning. Audi also offers a choice of a lush four-zone system, a feverishness displays of that are integrated into a rotary dials. A arrangement with toggle switches shows a standing of comparison functions. When a toggle switch is touched, a menu expands for improved legibility and easier operation.
The right section of a instrument quarrel includes a continual atmosphere opening frame – including continual chrome focus – from that a atmosphere exits indirectly and draft-free. Both atmosphere conditioning variants offer business quite high atmosphere peculiarity in a cabin. In both uninformed atmosphere and recirculation mode, a atmosphere conditioning complement filters out glorious particulates.
Playfully easy: a new MMI doing concept
The latest era of a Audi MMI doing judgment creates it easy to control a crowd of accessible and innovative functions in a Audi Q7. The innovative MMI hunt with intelligent suggestions creates it easier to hunt for specific strain titles and to submit write contacts or navigation destinations, so significantly shortening a volume of time spent on these operations. Nearly all entries can be finished in usually a few steps. Two supplemental menus enclose cleverly related functions and options. Audi once again sets a benchmark here.
Displays seem on a executive MMI monitor, that rises adult from a instrument quarrel when a complement is started and also enables a newcomer to use a Audi MMI complement in a accustomed manner.
Haptic feedback: MMI all-in-touch
The focal indicate of a doing complement is a newly grown MMI all-in-touch control territory with a full reason surface. Each submit is followed by an acoustic and a haptic acknowledgment – a click that is also felt on a finger.
The motorist can enter characters on a vast touchpad or perform multi-finger gestures to wizz in on a map or corkscrew by lists, for example. The categorical functions can be accessed regulating a high-quality rotary pushbutton and dual rocker switches. The motorist can also allot personal favorites, such as navigation destinations, write numbers or radio stations, to 8 openly programmable buttons.
The essential control proof of a Audi MMI is also reflected in a new multifunction steering wheels. Customers can work a onboard mechanism with a automobile information and information for a motorist as good as work a audio complement with a ride of their left hand. Depending on a apparatus installed, telephony and navigation functions can also be tranquil around a steering wheel. The proven volume drum with tongue-tied duty as good as a voice dialog button, write demonstrate controls and a unsentimental Skip duty quick changing a radio hire or a strain are located on a right side of a steering wheel.
“Where can we get gas?”: new healthy debate control
Another prominence is a voice control system. It is now most simpler. Drivers no longer have to hang to predefined commands. The complement understands phrasings from bland language, definition that hundreds of authority variations are probable for any function. In a write menu, job a strike is as easy as observant “I wish to speak to Peter” or “Connect me to Peter.” But a navigation complement also reacts to elementary commands (such as “Where can we get gas?” or “I wish to eat something”). Natural debate control is also integrated into a menu apparatus Radio and Media (for instance, “Play Radio Galaxy” or “I wish to listen to my iPod”), enabling unchanging voice control for a customer.
Driver-relevant information is displayed in a new Q7 in a high-quality instrument cluster with precisely built dial instruments for rpm and speed. The 7-inch tone arrangement places all from a stream radio hire to a navigation map to a arrangement from a discretionary night prophesy partner directly in a margin of view.
Sophisticated graphics: Audi unsentimental cockpit
The discretionary MMI navigation and is also accessible with a Audi unsentimental cockpit, a 12.3-inch TFT arrangement that presents tack-sharp, painstakingly rendered graphics. As in a new Audi TT*, a Q7 patron can switch between a classical perspective with high-quality rendered dial instruments and an infotainment perspective with an extended arrangement area for lists and a map – all conveniently from a steering wheel. Furthermore, tradition views, such as certain values from a onboard computer, can also be configured. The good coherence of a displays enables all information to be brilliantly presented as a duty of personal preferences and a pushing situation.
Awesome computing power: a T30 processor from Audi’s partner NVIDIA
This high opening is done probable by a intelligent interplay of a Audi wiring architecture. The modular infotainment tallness (MIB) is an vicious complement member here. The new Q7 is versed with a second era of a MIB, that includes a quad-core T30 processor from Audi’s partner NVIDIA.
Together with a second T30 processor integrated directly into a Audi unsentimental cockpit, a systems beget shining 3D graphics and tack-sharp dial instruments displayed during a rate of 60 frames per second. The graphics quality, pristine images and animations together with a high-end fortitude of 1,440 x 540 pixels emanate an all-new manifest experience.
Another high-end choice in a new Audi Q7 is a head-up display, that is harmoniously integrated into a instrument panel. It projects all pivotal information onto a windshield.
Modular: a infotainment
Audi offers several levels of a infotainment modules for a new Q7. The MMI radio and is customary in Germany. This offers interfaces for outmost inclination such as mobile phones or memory cards. The customary Audi sound complement delivers glorious sound peculiarity from a 10 speakers. It is tranquil regulating a MMI depot on a core tunnel, that comprises a rotary pushbutton, dual options buttons and 4 categorical duty buttons.
Displays are shown on a central, 7-inch MMI guard that rises adult from a instrument quarrel when a complement is started.
The high-end infotainment control core is a MMI navigation plus, that has an 8.3-inch monitor. Working in a credentials is a second era of a modular infotainment platform. Its pivotal member is a quick Tegra 30 graphics processor from Audi’s partner NVIDIA.
Sound with a third dimension: 3D sound
Audi offers additional hardware components over MMI navigation plus. The Bose sound complement with 3D sound and a Bang Olufsen Advanced Sound System with 3D sound intruigued even perceptive hi-fi users. Both systems imitate song in innovative 3D sound. Additional speakers in a A-pillars yield a spatial dimension of tallness so that a song appears to be entrance from a vast unsentimental stage. The Bang Olufsen complement drives 23 speakers including subwoofers with 1,920 watts of amplifier power.
The Audi phone box, another choice in a new Q7 already accessible in other models, connects a dungeon phone to a car’s mobile phone antenna. Inductive charging and wireless smartphone tie will be accessible as additional functions shortly after a launch of a new Audi Q7.
New back chair entertainment: a Audi tablet
Audi is violation new belligerent in back chair entertainment. One or optionally dual Audi tablets with 10.1 in. screens and a glorious finish offer as back chair monitors. Their heart is a absolute NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor. The Audi inscription can mountain adult to a perfectionist hurdles in a automobile – it is temperature-resistant and offers a required pile-up reserve lacking in required end-device solutions. The Audi inscription is connected to a MMI navigation and around WiFi, so gaining entrance to a radio, media, navigation and automobile functions of a Audi Q7.
A back chair newcomer can, for instance, send a navigation finish to a MMI navigation around a Audi tablet. The newcomer can also roller a Internet around a WiFi connection. The use of a Android doing complement in a Audi inscription and a accessibility of a Google Play store give a patron entrance to a outrageous series of applications, games, movies, music, eBooks and most more. At a finish of a trip, a Audi inscription can be private from a mountain and used offline or on any outmost WiFi network. The Audi inscription facilities a full HD camera, 32 GB of inner storage and an additional Bluetooth and NFC interface for joining headphones, for example.
Internet with LTE speed: Audi connect
MMI navigation and also includes a procedure Audi connect, that connects a new Audi Q7 to a Internet around a LTE standard. Passengers can roller around a WiFi hotspot with download speeds of adult to 100 Mbit/s and send and accept e-mail while regulating a accumulation of applications. The motorist can use a tailored Audi bond services trimming from online trade information to navigation with Google Earth and Google Street View to online media streaming. The new app provides entrance to Aupeo! personal web radio and a vast Napster song library.
The Q7 also has a new, top-of-the-line component of a Audi bond portfolio: The Audi smartphone interface brings “Apple Car Play” and “Google Android Auto” on board. If an iOS or Android mobile phone is connected to a USB pier (iOS from Version 7.1; Android from Version 5.0 Lollipop), a particular sourroundings opens in a Audi smartphone interface. Both are tailored for use in a car. The heart of this underline is online music. In addition, both platforms offer navigation functions, missed call/appointment reminders and messaging functions. Over time, these will be assimilated by countless third-party applications such as Pandora, Spotify and WhatsApp.
Customer wish fulfilled: online updates for a navigation map
The Audi Q7 offers additional new services besides a informed Audi bond portfolio. For example, a code with a 4 rings now offers online updates for a navigation map. Audi Q7 drivers can download a refurbish directly to a automobile regulating a LTE connection. They can also download a information to their mechanism regulating a myAudi tallness during www.audi.de/myaudi and send them to a automobile around an SD card. A third choice is designation during an Audi dealership.
A presentation appears in a MMI navigation and when a new map refurbish is available. Updates will be expelled any 6 months, and a initial 5 updates are giveaway for Audi drivers. Customers can refurbish possibly a finish Europe map or usually particular regions. Navigation continues to work though limitation during a online refurbish in a car.
Audi bond can be used giveaway of allot with MMI navigation and for 3 months. An prolongation for an additional 3 years is accessible as a bureau choice or around Audi After Sales Service.
Audi connect: additional new services
The Audi Q7 will accept additional new services shortly after launch when a apparatus component “Audi bond Emergency Calling Service” becomes accessible with a functions puncture calling, online calls in box of a relapse and Audi online use appointments.
The apparatus component also includes a use package “Audi bond Vehicle Control”, comprising a services automobile standing report, remote control lock/unlock, parking plcae and a remote control for a discretionary auxiliary heating. “Audi bond Emergency Calling Service” can be used 10 years giveaway of charge. The use package “Audi bond Vehicle Control” is accessible giveaway of allot for 3 years, during a finish of that it can be extended for a fee.
A operation that sets new standards: a motorist assistance systems
With a operation of motorist assistance systems, a new Audi Q7 sets standards that go distant over a standards in a segment. Some systems have been totally redeveloped from scratch.
Standard are a back parking aid, journey control, tractable speed limiter, rest recommendation and a reserve complement Audi pre clarity city. At city speeds it warns a motorist of imminent collisions with other vehicles or pedestrians and will trigger complicated braking in an emergency.
If a collision is inevitable, a multicollision stop support complement uses tranquil braking maneuvers during a collision to support a driver. This can assistance to forestall a automobile from skidding and so additional collisions. The discretionary “Audi pre clarity basic” triggers surety protecting measures for a occupants in instable pushing states, such as tightening of a front chair belts.
Optional solutions are bundled in a packages “Parking”, “City” and “Tour”. The “Parking” package includes a approximate perspective camera and a park support system, that autonomously steers a automobile retrograde into together and perpendicular parking spots. The motorist usually has to request a brakes and a gas.
New: cross-traffic assist, exit warning complement and trailer assistant
The “City” package comprises new systems. The cross-traffic support warns a motorist of other vehicles when pushing solemnly in reverse, such as when pulling out from a perpendicular parking spot. The exit warning complement indicates vehicles or cyclists entrance from a back before a doorway is opened.
If a new Audi Q7 is used as a draw vehicle, a trailer partner steers a trailer retrograde in precisely a instruction indicated by a motorist regulating a rotary pushbutton of a MMI. The complement also manages branch a steering circle in a conflicting direction, stabilizes a trailer-tow automobile territory when pushing retrograde in a true line and when a steering circle is incited too distant warns if a trailer could strike a back of a vehicle.
Audi side support uses radar measurements behind a automobile to safeguard protected line changes; Audi pre clarity back tensions a chair belts in a eventuality of an imminent collision from behind. The parking complement and and a reversing cameras turn out a “City” package.
For slow-moving traffic: ACC stop go including trade jam assistant
More innovations from Audi can be found in a “Tour” package. The adaptive journey control complement accelerates and brakes to keep a Q7 during a preferred stretch from a automobile ahead. It displays a stretch when it is deactivated. With a tip version, ACC stop go including trade jam assistant, a complement also takes over a steering on grown highways if trade undiluted and not relocating faster than 60 km/h (37.3 mph).
Audi active line support uses a camera and tiny steering interventions to assistance a motorist to stay in a lane. The reserve complement Audi pre clarity front warns of an imminent rear-end collision with a automobile ahead, tensions a belts and brakes a automobile autonomously, if necessary. It does both of these things in mixed stages.
Even revoke consumption: a predictive potency assistant
The predictive potency partner is a groundbreaking creation from Audi. It uses a track information from a navigation complement to warning a motorist of situations in that it would make clarity to revoke speed, such as before curves, towns or speed extent signs that are not nonetheless visible. In partnership with adaptive journey control (ACC) and trade pointer recognition, a complement adapts a preselected speed to a track and a speed limits. The predictive potency assistant, that can also take over predictive control of a free-wheeling duty of a eight-speed tiptronic, has a intensity to revoke fuel expenditure on interurban roads by as most as 10 percent.
Also accessible as an choice is a night prophesy assistant. It uses an infrared camera to detect pedestrians and incomparable furious animals during prolonged distances in a dim and issues suitable warnings. The camera-based trade pointer approval complement rounds out a spectrum.
Two offer systems are scheduled to follow shortly after a launch. The deterrence partner intervenes in a steering to assistance a motorist equivocate an obstacle. The branch partner monitors hostile trade when branch left during low speeds. In a vicious situation, it brakes a car.
Powerful and efficient: a updated engines
The new Audi Q7 is entrance to a European marketplace with dual absolute and highly-cultivated V6 engines: a TDI and a TFSI. Thanks to complete refinements, their CO2 emissions have been reduced by as most as 50 grams per kilometer (80.5 g/mi). Both engines approve with a Euro 6 emissions standard.
The absolute 3.0 TDI produces 200 kW (272 hp) and 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) of torque. The scurry from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) takes 6.3 seconds; tip speed is of 234 km/h (145.4 mph). Average fuel expenditure is usually 5.7 liters per 100 kilometers (41.3 US mpg), that equates to CO2 emissions of 149 grams per kilometer (239.8 g/mi). The V6 diesel has been evenly designed for minimal inner attrition and fit thermal management. The 3.0 TDI is intensely smooth, that is also due in partial to a switchable hydraulic engine bearings. They safeguard that engine quivering is low and control small sound into a car.
The 3.0 TFSI produces 245 kW (333 hp) and 440 Nm (324.5 lb-ft) of torque, accelerating a vast SUV from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 6.1 seconds on a approach to a tip speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph). Its involuntary compressor, that provides charging, is deactivated when doing during partial load. This technique contributes to a low expenditure of 7.7 liters per 100 kilometers (30.5 US mpg) in a NEDC, analogous to 179 grams CO2 per kilometer (288.1 g/mi).
A second several of a 3.0 TDI with 160 kW (218 hp) and 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft) of torque will follow during a after date. This potency indication will offer revoke a CO2 emissions of a 3.0 TDI, sourroundings new standards for efficiency.
Another engine is a 2.0 TFSI with an outlay of 185 kW (252 hp) and 370 Nm (272.9 lb-ft) of torque. It is designed essentially for a Asian markets and a U.S.A.
by wire: a powertrain
Smooth, fast, lightweight and efficient. In a new Audi Q7, a newly developed, eight-speed tiptronic transfers a engine’s appetite to a quattro permanent all-wheel expostulate system. The torque converter delivery shifts gears uniformly and is really efficient. It offers a free-wheeling duty when a motorist stairs off a gas. A new vaporization complement enables a engine to run during intensely delayed speeds next 1,000 rpm.
Besides involuntary mode, a motorist can also name to control a tiptronic regulating a customary paddles on a steering circle or around a selector lever. In both cases, a commands are transmitted quite electrically (by wire).
The self-locking core differential – a heart of a quattro all-wheel expostulate complement – is integrated into a housing of a eight-speed tiptronic. It is significantly lighter and some-more compress than a send box of a prior model, and with a optimized locking rates provides for superb traction and handling. Under normal pushing conditions, a core differential distributes a appetite between a front and back shaft in a 40:60 ratio. If a wheels of one shaft remove grip, it can intensely quick send as most as 70 percent of a appetite to a front and a extent of 85 percent to a rear.
The involuntary core differential operates in approach and with torque vectoring. During quick cornering, a control program uses finely metered interventions to stop a inside wheels, that are underneath a reduced load. This creates a steering response of a vast SUV even some-more flexible and precise, and a reason even better.
Supreme comfort and sporty agility: a chassis
The new Audi Q7 is an intensely gentle companion. It marks uniformly and quietly on a highway and booty a passengers with a high spin of rolling comfort. On rambling interurban roads, it is manageable, accurate and agile, and it also keeps going when a pavement stops. Compared with a prior model, a core of mass of a vast SUV has been lowered by 50 millimeters (2.0 in), in partial by installing a engine lower.
The framework also facilities countless changes. Both a front and back shaft are five-link designs, replacing a double wishbone axles of a prior model. The new elastomer orientation and a apart springs and dampers during a back shaft respond intensely sensitively. Also new is a electromechanical appetite steering, whose boost decreases as speed increases and is really efficient. It provides for approach steering response, and several of a motorist assistance systems would not be probable though it.
Minus 100 kilograms: despotic lightweight construction for chassis
Compared with a prior model, a framework of a new Audi Q7 is over 100 kilograms (220.5 lb) lighter – interjection to many changes. The links of a circle suspensions, for example, are now done of aluminum and high-strength steel; a cardan shafts of a front shaft are hollow; and a focus orientation are aluminum forgings.
Top innovation: a new all-wheel steering
Audi offers another groundbreaking creation as an option: all-wheel steering. A steering complement with an electric shaft expostulate turns a back wheels executive by as most as 5 degrees depending on a situation. At low speeds they expostulate conflicting a front wheels, that significantly increases automobile lively and reduces a branch radius by adult to one scale (3.3 ft). At aloft speeds a back wheels follow a transformation of a front wheels. This offer optimizes steering response, and automobile fortitude is offer extended in deterrence situations.
The new Audi Q7 already offers glorious comfort even with a customary steel suspension. Rolling is even smoother with a adaptive atmosphere suspension, that is managed by a newly grown executive automobile control territory that manages all physique control systems. The new controllers grown by Audi for a atmosphere cessation and active damping change a physique tallness and superstructure comfort as a duty of a situation. On a highway, a physique is lowered by as most as 30 millimeters (1.2 in). It is lifted as most as 60 millimeters (2.4 in) when pushing during low speeds off-road. A competition chronicle of a adaptive atmosphere cessation is also available.
As many as 7 levels: Audi expostulate select
The customary Audi expostulate name pushing dynamics complement works together with a adaptive atmosphere cessation to offer 7 modes: potency (available for a initial time on a Audi Q7), comfort, auto, dynamic, individual, allroad and lift/offroad. Depending on a apparatus installed, Audi expostulate name integrates several record modules, including a eight-speed tiptronic, a electromechanical appetite steering, a all-wheel steering and a engine characteristic.
The new Audi Q7 comes customary with 18-inch wheels and 235/65 tires. Audi and quattro GmbH offer a vast series of additional wheels in sizes adult to 21 inches as options. Large, vented stop discs move a SUV safely to a stop. They are gripped adult front by aluminum six-piston calipers. The electromechanical parking brake, updated with accessible mountain reason and startup functions, acts on a back wheels.
The new Audi Q7 also moves with coolness by terrain, where a high belligerent clearway of adult to 235 millimeters (9.3 in) and vast shaft accent probable come into play. An discretionary arrangement shows a motorist a representation and hurl angles. An electronic hill-descent support controls a preferred speed.
German business will be means to sequence a Q7 from a open of 2015 and it will be nearing during a dealerships with a resources of customary apparatus facilities in a summer of 2015. In Germany a Q7 will be accessible starting during around 61,000 euros.
Plug-in hybrid with quattro all-wheel drive: a Audi Q7 e-tron quattro
Audi is fast expanding a lineup of vehicles with absolute electric expostulate systems. These are scheduled to be assimilated by a Audi Q7 e-tron quattro in 2015, when it will be a world’s initial plug-in hybrid with a six-cylinder diesel and quattro all-wheel drive. Equipped with quattro all-wheel drive, a SUV consumes usually 1.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (138.4 US mpg) – for a CO2 homogeneous of reduction than 50 grams per kilometer (80.5 g/mi). The lithium-ion batteries store 17.3 kWh of energy, enabling a operation of adult to 56 kilometers (34.8 mi) in pristine electric mode.
The 3.0 TDI in a Audi Q7 e-tron produces 190 kW (258 hp). The electric motor, that is integrated into a eight-speed tiptronic, has an outlay of 94 kW. System outlay is 275 kW (373 hp); complement torque is 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft). The Audi Q7 e‑tron accelerates with this appetite from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 6.0 seconds, and from 0 to 60 km/h (37.3 mph) in 6.1 seconds on electric appetite alone. Top speed is 225 km/h (139.8 mph).
The Q7 PHEV is a world’s initial PHEV with a feverishness pump, that minimizes a appetite requirement for heating and atmosphere conditioning though compromising patron comfort. Furthermore, a patron can preheat or precool a automobile around an app.
