The Audi Q7 is a full-size luxury sport utility vehicle (SUV) produced by German automaker Audi since its unveiling at the Los Angeles Auto Show in January 2006.

In its name Q7, the “Q” denotes a new family of vehicles for Audi, and the designation “7” marks its placement between the A6 and A8 in Audi’s model range.

The Q7 utilizes a modified version of the Volkswagen Group 7L platform, the 4L. Based on the Audi Pikes Peak quattro concept car, the Q7 is designed more for on-road use, and was not meant for serious off-road use where a transfer case is needed. In an off road test through the Australian outback it fared well for a “soft roader”[citation needed] but in a test published in The Sunday Times it was described as “an absolutely useless off-roader”.[1] Although it lacks a low-range transfer case, it has quattro permanent four wheel drive system with a central differential lock, and an adjustable-height air suspension which helps in off road situations.

Audi’s 350 PS (345 hp/257 kW), 440 N·m (325 lb·ft) 4163 cc V8 and 280 PS (276 hp/206 kW), 360 N·m (266 lb·ft) V6 3596 cc petrol engines, both with FSI technology, are offered. Interestingly, Q7 using either engine has the same 0 – 100 km/h performance.

Two diesel options are available; a 240 PS (237 hp/177 kW) 3.0L V6 and in mid-2007 the 4.2 litre 331 PS (326 hp/243 kW) diesel with 760 N·m (561 lb·ft) torque known from the Audi A8 was introduced. Audi is reportedly going to introduce a hybrid version of the Q7 in 2008[2]
