The upcoming 2023 Audi Q7 will hit the dealerships at some point next year. This great SUV is very impressive in so many ways, and it combines a stylish design, a technologically advanced cabin, and outstanding safety ratings. Furthermore, the Audi Q7 has enough space for the entire family owing to its standard three rows of seats.
The new model, like the existing one, will be available with three engine options. The base model comes with a turbo-four engine, but customers looking for additional power and towing capability should go for the turbocharged V6 powertrain option. With all of these amenities, the Audi Q7 is competitive enough to rival models such as Volvo XC90 and BMW X5.
Audi Q7 Facelift
The previous version of the Q7 SUV had a minor facelift so the 2023MY should see mild modifications. The 2023 Audi Q7 will introduce a more attractive design and a slew of package improvements. According to the information we have, the next model will have the same design language, but it will be more distinctive and it will wear improved aerodynamics.
Audi enthusiasts will like the new grille and LED turn-signal animations. In addition, we anticipate that the manufacturer will produce larger wheels with diameters of up to 22 inches. Overall, the design should be more apparent and appealing to the eye.
Interior Provides More Standard Features
For next year, the forthcoming 2023 Audi Q7 might have a few more standard amenities. In general, the Audi Q7 features one of the most spacious and technologically advanced interiors in the class. This SUV is very upright and full of premium materials. In addition, the interior provides comfy seats with excellent support for seven people.
Even the entry-level models are well-equipped. There isn’t a lot of cargo room behind the third row, like with most three-row SUVs. On the technological front, it includes a 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen as standard, as well as a smaller 8.6-inch placed underneath. Audi offers its recognizable Virtual Cockpit once again, along with the 4G LTE Wi-Fi and other modern systems.
Towing Capacity, Transmission
New 2023 Audi Q7 will once again offer three powertrain options. As before, a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine with 248 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque is standard. This unit sends the power to all wheels, which means Audi’s Quattro AWD system is on offer. Moreover, Audi offers an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Q7 SUV has a towing capacity of almost 4,500 pounds.
The more powerful engine is an optional turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 with 330 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque. The maximum towing capacity is 7,700 pounds. The sportier SQ7 variant is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 generating 500 horsepower.
