Petrol powered Audi Q7 launched at Rs 67.76 lakh

MUMBAI: Audi on Monday announced the launch of the petrol powered Q7 40 TFSI quattro in India, starting at Rs 67.76 lakh (ex-showroom). Propelling the car is the 2.0-litre TFSI engine that powers multiple models from the fleet of the German carmaker - including the TT Coupe.

The inline-four motor churns out 252PS and 370Nm of torque, said to accelerate the car from standstill to 100kmph in 6.9 seconds. Audi also claims a lightning-fast power redistribution through quattro permanent all-wheel drive, and a top speed of 233kmph. The declared fuel efficiency of the Q7 petrol is 11.68kmpl which is approved by Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI). The SUV also gets segment first Audi Virtual Cockpit and a smart Audi Smartphone Interface.

Addressing the launch, Rahil Ansari, Head, Audi India, said, "This is the year of 'Audi Reloaded' for us. 'Audi Reloaded' just doesn't mean new products or new touch points but it signifies a nimbleness to tweak the strategy as per the market demand. We have taken a strategic decision to increase our petrol mix and started off the process with the launch of the Audi Q3 1.4 TFSI in March this year. We do have some other surprises planned for this year."

The car is already available in India with a 3.0 TDI engine which is no different from the new petrol version in the terms of design and functionality. The car continues to feature adaptive suspension along with the electromechanical power steering and shift paddles. Key highlights of the Q7 include a high-end infotainment system, four-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, auto park assist and eight airbags among the other features.
