After the last year launch, we doubt that this hi-performance crossover will feature bigger changes for the 2018 Audi SQ7 that is about to by the end of the year. This is a hi-performance version of the standard Q7 model, which is production since 2005. The original model was in production for a full decade, when the second-generation model finally came two years ago. One year after the launch of the standard model, we saw this performance version. It comes with many unique characteristics both in terms of appearance and mechanics. However, the most interesting thing about it is a new powerful diesel V8 engine. For the second year of production, we don’t expect bigger changes. The 2018 SQ7 is expected to come by the end of the year.
2018 Audi SQ7 changes
As we already mentioned, the 2018 Audi SQ7 probably won’t feature bigger changes. It came last year and it is still very fresh. Compared to the standard model, it comes with several modifications. First of all, you will notice several unique visual details outside. There are many new details such as new bumpers, grille, tweaked lights etc. Also, you will notice plenty of “S” badges around the vehicle. When it comes to the interior, there are plenty of new things installed. You will see sporty seats, plenty of sport accents such as paddles, instrument cluster etc. In terms of mechanics, we have also seen several modifications. The 2018 Audi SQ7 will continue in the same way and it will feature the same modified suspension that will provide excellent performances.
2018 Audi SQ7 engine
The engine is probably the most interesting part of this crossover. The 2018 Audi SQ7 will continue with the same powertrain. It is a quite interesting solution to put a diesel engine into a sporty crossover. The company introduced a new 4.0-liter V8 TDI engine, which has a max output of 435 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. It probably comes with not so fantastic sound, but there are some great benefits from this engine. First of all, performances are amazing. It goes from zero to sixty in about 4.8 seconds, while the top speed is limited to 250 km/h. Also, this model provides excellent fuel economy, which goes around amazing 43 miles per gallon.
2018 Audi SQ7 release date and price
