The Audi Q7 SUV gets the usual latest inside and out updates. A couple of updates that really stood out are the mild hybrid, digital operating concept and optional Matrix HD LEDs with laser light.

Audi’s large SUV has all the basis of a sports utility, with all the four-ring marque’s usual signatures: large octagon-shaped singleframe grille, two-part side air inlets and those recognizable tear-drop LED headlights.

The profile gets the familiar chrome fixtures, including the ornament just above the door sill and side steppers.  From the rear, a restyled chrome strip creates the visual connection between the flat rear lights with their technical-looking graphics.

To make the SUV stand out more, throw in an S Line package, which gives you a blade in the front bumper, more underbody protection at the rear with full paint finish and 19-inch wheels. Additionally, the S line exterior includes the slightly firmer adaptive air suspension sport, which lowers the ride height by 15 millimeters.

With slight increase in length, the 2019 Q7 is 11 mm  longer to offer more space. The boot holds 865 – 2,050 liters, while the tailgate’s got a foot-activated gesture control. The dash houses the new digital operating concept comprising the Audi digital cockpit with two large touchscreens, as well as an interactive display at the center for all kinds of multimedia, connectivity, a/c selection, navigation  and access to music/videos. Highlights in the seat lineup include the customized contour seats with their numerous adjustment functions and the S sport seats plus, both available with climate control and massage function. Options include a  Bang & Olufsen 3D Advanced Sound system, heads-up display, ambient lighting, four-zone automatic a/c,and air fragrancing with ionizer.

.Audi likes to use the term mild hybrid, so it literally translates to hybrid petrol engine. At launch, the Q7 is offered with a choice of two diesels, a mild hybrid petrol and a plug-in hybrid.

Road holding for the Audi Q7 relies on active roll stabilization, although it’s just an option. The standard suspension is good enough on the large SUV, backed by adaptive air suspension, to go with seven modes of off-road configuration. On driver’s assist terms, there’s adaptive cruise assist, adaptive speed assist, traffic jam assist and active lane assist and more.
