Product Overview

Audi Q7 (Typ 4L) is a large crossover in production from 2005 to 2009, whereupon it received a facelift. It was available with a range of V6, VR6, V8, and V12 engines that displaced 3.0 to 6.0 liters.
Emerged in an era of VAG's peak of confidence, the Q7 featured such interesting engines as VR6 petrol, V8 TDI, and V12 TDI, which have become fan favorites over time.
Those who drive offroad, for work or leisure, need to think twice before pulling the trigger: the Audi Q7 is hardly the "offroader" that Audi would like you to think. However, drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Audi Q7 comes with double-wishbone suspensions at all four corners. This provides the good cornering performance and comfort.
