Seven Seater 2017 Audi Q7 Available With Four Cylinder Engine For Less Than $50,000
Published November 4, 2016
Audi introduced an all-new version of the Q7 for the American market and it has a small four-cylinder engine. No, we are not talking about any hybrid or anything like that, but about the massive SUV with a two-liter engine, one could find even in the smallest Audi A3. Two-liter TFSI four-cylinder unit is a slut-engine. It goes everywhere – from the smallest cars VW produces – like the Audi A1, to the behemoths such as the aforementioned Q7. In its latest iteration, the two-liter turbocharged engine is quite a machine. 2017 Audi Q7 2.0 TFSI moves around with ease thanks to 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.
Thanks to aluminum structure and massive weight loss (up to 500 lbs), the second generation Audi Q7 certainly can use smaller engines. To prove the point we will just list the acceleration time – 0-60 mph in 7.1 seconds. This is 0.6 seconds faster compared to the first gen Audi Q7 3.0T. We call this “Vorsprung Durch Technik” whether you like it or not. Despite losing quite a bit of weight, the Audi Q7 2.0 TFSI still weighs in at 4,360 lbs. However, it has Quattro all-wheel drive and magnificent eight-speed Tiptronic gearbox. Also, it is far more aerodynamic compared to any other versions of the previous Q7. In fact, it is so advanced, Audi noted it will return up to 22 mpg highway/city.
Sure, the Europeans announced it even before, but Audi just released the price for it in the US. This seven seater 2017 Audi Q7 2.0 TFSI starts from $49,000. If you are after luxury, Premium Plus model starts at $53,000. Interestingly enough, you’d only have to pay $5,800 more for the 3.0T model and that one produces 333hp and 325lb-ft of torque.
