The market for luxury crossovers and SUVs has quickly become crowded with strong options, but none of them are as enticing as the newly redesigned 2017 Audi Q7. Since 2009, the Audi Q7 has been a stellar three-row option for families that don't want to sacrifice comfort, performance, and style when choosing a car that can haul everyone and everything you might need to bring from point A to point B. With the facelift - both inside and out - given to the Audi Q7 to update it from 2015 to 2017, style and performance have been significantly overhauled. At Audi Rancho Mirage, we are excited to be offering this fantastic vehicle to our customers in Ontario, CA and beyond.


2017 Audi Q7 Details

The 2017 Audi Q7 redesign is most certainly a refinement of everything that made the last iteration, 2015's model, a great crossover SUV. On the outside, the new Audi looks like a continuation of the last model. The most notable changes are its grill, which has been enlarged, and headlights, which were slimmed down to give it a slightly more aggressive edge. On top of that, the rear end has been updated, and the fender flares are now more defined, a design cue taken from the Audi TT.

The TT inspiration is intentional: the 2017 Audi Q7 has improved the vehicles performance capabilities in a number of ways. The engineers shed 700 pounds with this new design, helping the available engines, a turbo-charged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and super-charged 3.0-liter V6 engine, to translate their raw power into real performance. The four-cylinder engine is capable of 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, while the V6 gets 333 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, achieving 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds.


2017 Audi Q7 Safety and Special Features

When you have a full car, you want to be sure that your precious cargo is as safe as possible. To that end, the 2017 Audi Q7 is a great choice, having been named a Top Safety Pick+ by IIHS. The vehicle is equipped with Audi pre sense®, standard, which can detect other moving objects around the car, like people, cyclists, or other vehicles, at speeds of up to 52 mph. With Audi pre sense®, the car can then alert the driver and reduce speed by up to 25 mph through automatic braking. All of this information is given to the driver in the all-digital instrument layout behind the steering wheel, making it easier to keep your eyes on the road. An exciting available safety option is a night vision assistant, which puts a night vision video feed between your tachometer and speedometer.
