The 2016 Audi Q7 comes into the 2016 model year with a significant weight loss. Not only that but the car is going to be released with many updates that will provide a better overall performance of the car. With a rakish new sport wagon look, updated and technologically advanced interior and a some advancements in the chassis the new release of a Q7 car is one of the most expected ones on the market. This model also comes with a plug in hybrid option and includes and rear-wheel drive.
This is going to be the second year generation vehicle for the Q7, while its first generation one has been released back in 2007 and was immediately offered in the US market. The first year design has aged well and it seemed as if it was unnecessary to actually update the vehicle. Perhaps some other vehicles in the segment were the ones that needed a style change because the Q7 was the one that set all the style standard.
It dismisses the looks of a traditional SUV car and adopts its own, which was lately the fact the car was so successful to begin with. Its truck influenced cues enabled the car to adopt its sport wagon features in a great sense and make it what it is today. The newest model, as you can see form the pictures, does more than well to update the entire setup and is a very nice evolution of the vehicle. Continue reading the review for more specs and news.
2016 Audi Q7 exterior
The best way to describe the exterior of the 2016 Audi Q7 is that it is far less SUV like and much more Wagon like. The car that has started to change and set some standards in the modern ear of SUV vehicles will continue to do so this time. It continues its own thing and manages to pull it out in a great way. The dimensions have actually remained completely the same and the car uses the same numbers as it did last year. But the difference is that the car looks much slimmer. The styling cues and restyling some of the surface parts has done more than well for the car as it updates very nicely. The dimension change is what some people think that it has happened but it is actually a complete different way the car decide to go with.
What has been reshaped a bit is the front part of the car. The changes feature a newly added hexagonal grille which provide the car with more attitude and an added road presence feel. It combines very well with the new and reshaped headlights that also come with some LED components. All of this makes everybody aware that the Q7 is on the road and provide it with clear and branded look for the future.
The inside of the 2016 Audi Q7 brings us a very friendly environment. An update was not a necessary thing for the inside and yet it happened. But the already perforce inside was only made better with some minor inclusions that the car was given. The inside of the car is a very family friendly inside and does so with the use of the Audi’s trademark look which maybe the best one in the sedan segment. All of the recent releases from Audi sports a similar kind of interior and is what has made them so popular since recent years.
The dashboard is thin and has been placed low and as it is very wide it enables a more logical layout of the controls added and provides much better use for them. The Multi Media interface is what occupies the most part of the dash but perhaps it is also the most important part of it and thus letting it get the upper hand on other components of the car is a logical thing to do. The added driver’s instrument panel has a high resolution screen which is capable of displaying a multitude of information at a time, provide the driver with much needed data when driving.

Price and release date
The 2016 Audi Q7 is certainly going to be released next year but there are no announcements on when exactly. There are some rumors that say that it will be offered at the end of next year which is a disappointing fact for most of the fans. But as there is no price ranges available yet this might be a rumor that holds more truth inside it than most of them.
