The Exhilarating Performance of the Audi SQ7 TDI
It goes without saying that the new Audi SQ7 TDI will have the most luxurious interior and a host of technology as standard, but really, it’s the exhilarating performance that sets it apart from the standard Q7 model. The impressive power of the V8 Bi-turbo 4.0 Diesel TDI engine, along with 900Nm of torque accelerates this big SUV from zero to 62.1 mph in just 4.8 seconds, which is firmly up there in performance car territory, before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 155.3 mph.
The immense power of the 4.0 V8 diesel is put onto the road through an eight-speed tiptronic transmission with quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The sport air suspension and progressive steering combines to create excellent driving dynamics while the all-wheel steering makes the SQ7 SUV remarkably easy to handle, even when driving on uneven roads. The sport differential reassuringly provides even more dynamic handling on fast corners by actively distributing power between the rear wheels. This way, the SQ7 is literally pressed into the curve when steering or accelerating, eliminating any hint of understeer – Furthermore, due to the SQ7’s awesome engine power, uprated brake discs are fitted front and rear as standard, with carbon fibre ceramic discs available as an option.
Power. Prowess. Performance.
A powerhouse performer, the SQ7 features a biturbo V8 engine which delivers 900Nm of torque to take you from 0-62mph in just 4.8 seconds. Coupled with the 8-speed tiptronic gearbox, the SQ7 can be driven smoothly in automatic mode or switched to manual with the shift paddles for a more dynamic experience. Our all-wheel drive technology, quattro, translates the engine power into beautiful control on the road. Take corners with ease, and grip confidently on different terrains. Meanwhile, adaptive sport suspension and progressive steering make the handling on this large SUV even slicker.
