Designed for greatness: The all-new Audi Q7

The original Q7 was the pioneering SUV from Audi, redefining the standards of luxury SUVs with its streamlined body style, capable driving dynamics, luxurious comfort and ergonomic practicality. Building on the winning formula, Audi launches the all-new Audi Q7, also known as the Great quattro—a striking, imposing figure featuring cutting-edge design, exceptional drivetrain, lightweight construction and class-leading technology.


Introducing the new Audi Q7, Immo Buschmann, Managing Director of Audi Malaysia shares: “The original Audi Q7 was the living embodiment of Audi’s quattro philosophy, combining the capability of an off-roader with comfort and utility of a family vehicle as well as the prestige and presence of a business sedan. In much the same way that its predecessor was a pioneer by defining all the characteristics of a luxury SUV back then, the all-new Audi Q7 blazes ahead today with the very latest advances in lightweight design, drivetrain technology and class-leading innovation for a luxury SUV simply know as the Great quattro.

Equipped with the latest generation 3.0 TFSI V6 petrol engine alongside combined demand-controlled direct injection and manifold injection, the new Audi Q7 bears an 8-speed tiptronic transmission that allows the engine to produce a maximum output of 333hp and a total of 440 Nm of torque from 2,900 to 5,300 rpm. Promising the performance to match its cutting-edge design, it accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 6.3 seconds, a full 1.6 seconds faster than its predecessor, and boasts an electronically-governed top speed of 250 km/h.


In addition to the standard Auto, Dynamic, Efficiency, Comfort and Individual Audi drive select settings, the Great quattro features an Allrode mode which prepares for a mixed terrain by lifting the ride height by 25mm and Lift/Offroad mode which prepares the SUV to go far off the beaten track by raising the right height to the maximum of 60mm. It also offers a convenient loading mode, which lowers the rear axle by 45mm in order to increase accessibility to the luggage compartment.

The new Audi Q7: the Great quattro is now available at all authorized Audi dealerships. It is priced from RM 589,900. For more information, visit the website.
