Upcoming 2012 Cars Audi Q7 Preview with Specification and prices
The Audi Q7 will be released in Europe in 2011 and in the United States in Upcoming 2012 Cars. The avant garde five-door coupe comes complete with a hatchback, but the styling would belie the utilitarian potential of the new longer body style. The Q7 is a few inches longer than the A6 and a foot longer than the S5.
Audi Q7 Specifications
Coming in around $60,000, this Q7 is the top of the line for Audi. It handles like a graceful, oversized S5 and gives a faint indication of what is on the horizon for the redesigned A6, soon to be released also. Despite being larger than the A6, the Q7 weighs exactly the same, thanks to Audi using aluminum for the hood, front quarter panels, doors and tailgate. That saved 150 pounds, keeping the Q7 at 4100 pounds.
The Q7 isn’t without its flaws. The vehicle’s full complement of features contributes to its ponderous curb weight, which strips some crispness from its acceleration. Fuel economy is poor. And those hoping to keep the kids occupied on road trips with showings of “The Incredibles” will be disappointed to learn that the Q7 isn’t available with a factory-installed DVD entertainment system.
