The 2006 Melbourne Motor Show To Host New Audi Q7 SUV
Audi Media Release

Audi L76 SUVAudi's long-awaited Q7 SUV will be one of the hero models on display at the Audi Stand during the 2006 Melbourne International Motor Show.

To be launched in Australia in September 2006, Audi's new Q7 is the company's first large, upright SUV model, combining sportiness and versatility with sophisticated technology and effortless luxury.

When the Q7 is launched locally, two engines will be available including the company's exceptional V6 3.0 TDI powerplant and a high-performance V8 4.2 FSI petrol engine.

Pricing is expected to be around AUD$85,000 to AUD$115,000 for Australian-specification vehicles.

On the road the Q7 excels with the performance and driving dynamics of a sports car and its off-road capabilities are excellent in its category. Outwardly, the Q7 makes no secret of its dynamic qualities, whilst under the bonnet it has the technology to match – on any road and in all conditions.

Significantly, the Audi Q7 in its guise as the 'new performance SUV' from the creator of quattro, will be unveiled during the company's 25th Anniversary of quattro technology.

From a design standpoint, the Audi Q7 sets new trends. Characteristic Audi dynamism is reflected in the broad curve of the roof line and the distinctive high body surface in relation to the flat window area. The dynamic sweep of the front section and the powerful rear end with its sharply sloping D-posts fashion a coupé-like silhouette.

Equally typical of the current Audi formal idiom are the shoulder line and dynamic line, which define the side section. The paintwork option of two contrasting body colours creates a particularly striking look.

With a length of 5,086 millimetres and a wheelbase of exactly 3,002 millimetres (width: 1,983 mm / height 1,737 mm), the Q7 takes the lead in the SUV contest.

Occupants will benefit from the comfort of incomparable spaciousness and a new dimension in versatility with no less than 28 seating and loading configurations possible in the Q7. Up to seven occupants can be accommodated in three rows of seats.
