I like this new design over the old one. However the XC90 looks way better than the new Q7. Interior look very well thought out but again I would prefer the XC90 interiors.

Good review Anshuman,
The Q7 is a huge vehicle and it offers loads of features and comfort. But I feel the space as a 7 seater seems very less. The 3rd row looks almost equal to my XUV 500. I don't understand why not put spare wheel under the vehicle which will create a lot of space. IMO

The Indian site seems short on technical data, but Audi UK shows an unladen weight of 2060 kg for the 3.0 TDI Q7. That's not too bad for a full size SUV. In comparison the Mercedes-Benz GLS 3.0 diesel weighs in at 2455 kg. That's an absolutely HUGE difference and will surely show in efficiency, acceleration, braking and handling.

For reference, the Volvo XC90 with its 2 liter diesel (225 hp/470 Nm) is 2130 kg. I guess this shows the immense weight saving potential of the VW Group MQB platform which is lighter even with a bigger engine.

The review has been very nicely put anshuman. By any chance, is this the first SUV in India to feature Vredestein branded space saver?

Saw the Audi SQ7 on JJ Flyover yesterday in Bombay. Tailed it for a quite a while. It was a left-hand drive Test mule. The tyres were chunky Continental tyres - I could not quite read the exact specifics of the tyres. It is hefty and commands more than a second look. Before I drew closer, I thought it was actually the Kodiaq. Here are a couple pics.

Additionally, I am unsure if this is the right thread for this - do feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

I have spotted the above Audi SQ7 on numerous occasions too on the Western Express Highway. It always seems to be driven enthusiastically cutting in and out of traffic.

However, yesterday I spotted this Q7 but it had its logo (don't know why they taped the logo as it is unmistakably an Audi) and model number taped so as to not disclose the same. Apologies for the low quality pics.

I think what you've spotted is the new Q5. It seems too short (length-wise) to be the Q7. The boot-lid also seems different from the pictures of the SQ7 posted above. It also seems to be missing the high-mounted stop light if compared the pictures in earlier posts.

Nice catch though!
