The Audi Q7 TDI® is many things to many people: an inspiring driving machine, a versatile and luxurious home away from home for your family and gear, and much more.
Producing 240 hp and an incredible 406 lb-ft of torqueTorqueTorque is what causes rotational speed to change. Just as greater net forces cause greater linear accelerations, greater torques cause greater rotational or angular accelerations.Torque , the Q7's 3.0-litre TDI® engine is a work of art. Remarkable performance and superior fuel economy for a full-size SUV, and reduced emissions as well. It's able to do this using turbo direct injection and, more recently, a common-rail system. Under this system, a series of piezo injectors uses electrical charge to precisely control the amount of fuel injected into the engine. As well as reducing noise, this allows combustion to happen at a lower temperature with less oxygen, which lowers emissions.
It's a technology that has, over the past 30 years, put Audi on top of the rally circuit podium numerous times over. With quattro®quattro®Audi quattro® permanent all-wheel drive, has had over a 30-year-long tradition.quattro® all-wheel drive, four permanently driven wheels deliver better acceleration, road-holding, and safetySafetySee active safety and passive safety.Safety , while asymmetric-dynamic torque distribution intelligently controls the flow of power to the front and rear axles. In essence, the Audi Q7 can ‘read’ the road, sense changes in the surface beneath the wheels, and adjust their grip accordingly. So when conditions get a little more demanding, for example, when you go off-road, quattro® adapts. It puts all the force of the Audi Q7's engine precisely where it’s needed to handle the change in terrain and driving conditions.
The advanced 8-speed Tiptronic®Tiptronic®Tiptronic, which is available with six speeds, features Dynamic Shift Program (DSP), key lock, and shift lock.Tiptronic® transmission offers numerous benefits to the performance and overall efficiency of the Audi Q7. Outside of its quick, smooth gear changes, the transmission reduces fuel consumption thanks to low-rev driving as well as an overdrive function, which reduces engine speed when cruising on highways. Road performance is also enhanced due to its direct-shift functions, which, for example, can allow a kickdown from eighth to fourth gear.
The stylish LED daytime running lights enhance the unmistakable look and design of the Audi Q7 as well as its visibility to other drivers. In addition to the daytime running lights, the xenon plus headlights are twice as bright as traditional halogen bulbs, and they help to better illuminate the road ahead. Like the daytime running lights, the Q7 taillights utilize LED technology as well, making brake lights appear faster and brighter when compared to conventional bulbs.
The rear parking system acoustically indicates how far away the vehicle is from an obstacle at the rear. Measurements are made by ultrasonic sensors discreetly integrated into the bumpersBumpersThe energy-absorbing bumper system can withstand minor parking impacts at speeds not exceeding 5 mph without any significant damage.Bumpers . In addition to the sonar, the Q7 also features an integrated backup camera. Utilizing the in-dash display, the driver can see objects directly in the path of the Q7 when reversing.
Audi Music InterfaceAudi music interfaceThis connective technology offers intelligent integration with the iPod® and the iPhone®. Audi music interface (AMI) offers universal connection for use with stereo audio sources, USB, and MP3 devices including Apple iPod® generation 4 onward. It provides intuitive control through the audio system and multi-function steering wheel. It also replicates the iPod® display on the audio screen and DIS, including track titles. As well, the interface provides a charging function (dependent on device).
Finding your way around is made easier with the Audi MMI® Navigation plusAudi MMI® Navigation plusAudi MMI® Navigation plus system. The third generation MMI® system includes a high resolution (800 x 400) 7” colour TFT display, two SD card readers, and a 40 GB hard drive, 10 GB of which can be used to store up to 4,000 songs. The HDD navigation functionality includes advanced speech recognition, 7-digit postal code functionality, and 3D map viewing.
When a vehicle brakesBrakesA vehicle's brakes must be matched to its power, weight, and top speed. Brakes , the discs convert the kinetic energy into thermal energy, which is wasted as it cannot be used. With a recuperation system like the one in the Audi Q7, the kinetic energy is converted into useful electrical energy. The way it works is simple. While the car is coasting or braking, the alternator voltage is raised above the level of the basic electrical system, which enables the alternator to generate electrical energy and store it temporarily in the battery. When the vehicle accelerates, this energy is used to relieve the load on the alternator, resulting in measurable fuel savings.
