We’ve been talking about budget 7-seater family MPVs the whole of last week, time to get back to dreamworld and have a look at another type of 7-seater vehicle! Audi’s mammoth of an SUV the Q7 has been updated with a facelift. It gets a new grille, new bumpers, a more distinctive underbody protection design, new side sills, more aggressive fender flares, optional LED daytime running lights, air-intake mounted LED signal lamps, and new LED lighting for the tail lamps. There is also a chrome package for more chrome trim on the exterior.
On the interior you get a new instrument cluster with larger displays, including Audi’s latest MMI system with hard drive storage, 3D map graphics, a DVD player, voice control, Bluetooth telephony, TV tuner, and even optional rear seat entertainment. The top of the line specs that can be specified is a Bang & Olufsen sound system with 505 watts of power through 14 speakers and 10 channels.
The Q7 is beginning to get quite popular here in Malaysia (perhaps too many X5, Touareg and Cayennes around) as reconditioned units are beginning to come in to pique the interest of those who want a cheaper deal than the official distributor. It looks absolutely menacing coming up your back through the rear view mirror and now with the new LED daytime running lights it’s going to be an even scarier sight.
