The next 2018 Audi Q7 will remain the biggest Hybrid model of all Audi lineups. This model will be redesigned compared to the current model, and we can expect its arrival sometime next year. We say sometimes because the exact release date is not officially announced. The most likely option for its releasing is the last quarter of 2017. The newly model will be quite exceptional, and we can clearly say that will certainly have a lot of sales. This great model will be the perfect choice for all people who loves SUVs, and for all people with big families. Everything will be improved, but we can’t expect some significant changes.
2018 Audi Q7 – Innovative Features:
The 2018 Audi Q7 will come with some improvements from the outside, and probably the most significant change will be its weight. The chassis will be different compared to the previous model. We can expect high usage of aluminum and the result will be lower weight and better overall performance. When it comes to some details from the outside, we can expect slight changes at the front fascia.
The front grille will be slightly modified and it will contain horizontal and vertical slats as well as Audi logo in the middle. Also, around the grille, we can see more chrome material. The headlights and the grille will be fused and we can expect updated LED system for all the lights on the vehicle. Down low, we can see elegantly designed bumper fitted with nice openings for fog lights. Those openings will contain chrome horizontal slats. At the sides, we can expect large aluminum wheels, but its size is unknown yet. The rear side will contain revised rear bumper as well as the same taillights.
The interior design will be as always from Audi, on the highest level. Everything inside is perfectly fitted in order to provide a high dose of luxury, elegance and comfort. We can expect a lot of premium and soft touch materials. The leather will be standard upholstery for seats, but we can see leather on the dash, door trims, and steering wheel. This model will have updated infotainment system in order to provide better entertainment in the cabin. The dashboard is nicely organized and we can expect large touchscreen display above it. Some of the other standard interior features will include dual zone climate control, adaptive cruise control, traction and stability control, rearview camera, excellent Bose audio system, a lot of options for connectivity, navigation, the Audi virtual Cockpit with 12.3 inch TFT screen and many others as well.

This engine will be mated to an 8-speed programmed transmission with manual control. We can expect Quattro four-wheel drive framework.

Also, 7-kW DC motor with the 48-volt lithium-ion battery will be intended for the hybrid powertrain. EPA rates are still unavailable for 2018 model.
