The Q7 40 TFSI is powered by a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine that puts out 248 BHP @ 5,000-6,000 rpm and 370 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox and a Quattro all-wheel drive system. Audi claims that the Q7 will hit a top speed of 233 km/h and reaches 100 km/h from standstill in 6.9 seconds. The petrol powered Q7 has an ARAI-certified fuel consumption figure of 11.68 km/l.

The Audi Q7 40 TFSI is available in a choice of five colours - Carrara White, Floret Silver, Graphite Grey, Orca Black and Ink Blue. The car features a single frame grille flanked by Matrix LED headlights with DRLs, LED tail lights and a panoramic sunroof and rides on 19-inch, 5-spoke alloy wheels.

The interior features a four-spoke steering wheel with shift paddles and digital instrument cluster. It is also equipped with a four-zone climate control system, MMI touchscreen infotainment with navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support and a 558W Bose audio system.

The Q7 40 TSFI comes with similar features to the diesel.

Reminds me of a discussion on an episode of Grand Tour where Jeremy is reasoning with Richard / James on a certain VW car and its figures and they point that does he really believe on figures given by VW? Same goes here, have a look at what they sell in Canada and the figures for this engine which are 252Bhp against 248 Bhp here but surprisingly Audi India can manage faster timings than Canada, and Audi recommends Premium fuel in Canada, unlike India, here I assume most of the manufacturers have to detune a bit to take care of the fuel.

It will be interesting to see how this will handle with a lighter lump in the front

This car needn't pass the homologation test if it's an import, I doubt it will be able to handle our fuel. I'm sure there are people whose running needs only petrol, but the depreciation will outweigh any initial price benefit.
What is needed is a hybrid with good city fuel economy as must of these cars are used in urban areas. The Q7 being a large car, the battery pack can be easily accommodated. The problem is that the hybrid versions' demand outstrips supply and we are too small a market. The e version of the bmw lineup is a good fit for our conditions.

I am planning to book this car. Was booking a diesel but the sales executive advised about its launch and it's price being 10 lakhs less otr compared to diesel. Makes sense for me. What do you guys suggest?

Buy a Petrol Innova instead

Seriously, why should you or anyone even consider buying such a large truck with punny 4 cylinders engine? Ask them for a test drive and 100% you will be refused, if you must buy, book a ticket to anywhere near wherever Audi sells this overseas and take a drive. Don't go buy figures, the real drive should be far more miserable.

Well the performance figures are pretty impressive if you ask me, like Ajit mentioned it would be interesting to know how a lighter engine in front will make the vehicle perform overall. My vote is a big yes, after a test-drive i.e.

The Q7 hardly sells nowadays; the charm and sheer shock value of the XL sized old model is gone. This one pretty much has the presence of a 15L rupee Creta! Pretty sure they have just imported a batch to try their luck. Its basically dead on arrival IMO, and will be soon be discounted heavily to clear stocks. A certain depreciation disaster for the brave souls who take the plunge.

Isn't this the same engine as in the new Octavia vRS, in a higher state of tune?

I have the same feelings too. The old Q7 looked large and imposing. The 2017 Q7 can be mistaken for a much much smaller car. It does not have that old road presence anymore. Looks crossover-ish.

The engine and transmission combo is adequate and the car feels fast enough for the highway speeds here (around 70mph speed limit). It feels under powered only if it is loaded to the brim or if you are towing. Handling is good too. Felt that it handles a little better than the 3.0T they have here. The real world mileage is around 27mpg on the highway with 4 people and some luggage on board. Seems like ARAI has rated it higher than that.

It's pretty much the same tune as the RS245 selling internationally. In India, the RS230 is running on the DQ250 transmission which has a 350Nm peak torque rating, hence the lower tune to keep cost under check.

I was very dismissive of the 2nd gen Skoda Superb when it downsized from a 2.8V6 to a 1.8 TSi. I ate my words after i drove it.

Let some folks try it first and take a call

The engine which they should have put in the Audi A4 they put in the Q7

The Q7 looks soft in comparison to previous gen & now with this engine they have cemented that feeling.

Even though the figures are impressive but with load it will be lukewarm, but i have a strange feeling it will sell as most of the target audience wouldn't care.
