Product Overview

Audi SQ7 (Typ 4M) is a large crossover in production from 2016 to 2019, whereupon it received a facelift. It was available with a single V8 diesel engine that displaced 4.0 liters.
Owners will probably enjoy the powerful V8 TDI, which is smoother than smaller engines and comes with an exhaust note that is sure to please. The amount of torque that it delivers also makes for an intoxicating drive.
Those who drive offroad, for work or leisure, will appreciate the good approach, departure, and breakover angles that the chassis offers, even though the SQ7 is not technically an SUV. The vehicle also comes with a high towing capacity.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Audi SQ7 comes with multi-link suspensions at all four corners. This provides the best cornering performance and tunability, at the expense of cost and a little bit of durability.

    The Vorsprung Edition comes with a long list of extras to justify the extra £15,520 Audi wants for it. Extras include mammoth 22in wheels, matrix LED headlights, glitzy additional LED lighting inside and out, titanium black trim, sports seats in premium quilted leather, Alcantara headlining and a panoramic sunroof. A Bose 3D sound system, Audi’s Virtual Cockpit and a head-up display, plus more driver assist systems than you can shake a stick at, complete the additions.

    The Vorsprung Edition is the SQ7 you'd choose if you got a bit over-excited with the options. It costs the best part of £90,000 - about £15,000 more than standard. The package is offered on the regular Q7 too, where it adds £25,000 to the price of a 3.0 TDI S line.
