The 2011 Audi Q7 is highly efficient with the 3.0 TDI engine

Audi has added a new and very efficient member to its Q7 family. The Q7 3.0 TDI offers now 204 hp and 450 Nm between 1,250 and 2,750 rpm at an average consumtion of 7.2 liters of diesel per 100 km. An eight speed tiptronic transmission with high overall gear ratio and quattro permanent all wheel drive delivers the necessary grip to the tires. The engine weighs less than 200 kilograms and has an innovative thermal management. The crankcase and the cylinder heads have separate cooling water circuits so the coolant agent is not circulated within the block while the engine is warming up. A common-rail system with lightning fast piezo injectors provides a pressure up to 2,000 bar, the turbocharger and the camshafts control times have been optimized for maximum efficiency and the new start-stop system deactivates the engine as soon as the vehicle comes to a stop. The CO2 emissions are now just 189 grams per km making it a friendly environment SUV. The car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.1 seconds. The top speed is 205 km/h when using an optional air suspension and 202 km/h with the steel suspension. An off-road mode and a hill-descent assistant aid are also available as standard options. Having an overall length of 5.09 meters, the interior offers plenty of room so Audi offers the Q7 with five, six or seven seats. The luggage compartment offers a maximum of 2,035 liters of capacity with the back seats folded. The interior options include two-zone deluxe automatic air conditioning, climate-controlled comfort seats, a panoramic glass sunroof, an electric tailgate, and a load-securing kit with rails for cargo. Despite a generous equipment package, this model line's new entry model costs about 51,800 euros in Germany making the Q7 more affordable than all of its direct competitors.
