The updated 2022 Audi Q7 has been finally launched in India today – Prices starts from Rs 79.99 lakh, ex-sh
Ever since the updated BS6 emission norms kicked in April 2022, Q7 has been off Audi’s shelves in India. The updated Q7 with BS6 compliant engine has been brought back to Indian shores, with a comprehensive facelift. The SUV had already entered production at the Audi India plant in Aurangabad.
As a result of these emission updates, Q7 will be a petrol-only model like all other cars under the Skoda-Volkswagen Group in India. Bookings for the facelifted Q7 are currently underway at a token amount of Rs 3.0 lakh in select dealerships.
2022 Audi Q7 – Trims, Colour Options
For starters, 2022 Q7 Facelift will now be offered in two broad trims namely Premium Plus and Technology, the latter being the top-spec variant. Price of the former is set at Rs 79.99 lakh while that of the latter is at Rs 88.33 lakh. All prices are ex-sh.
New Audi Q7 will be available in as many as five colour options including Mythos Black, Carrara White, Floret Silver, Navarra Blue, and Samurai Grey. Buyers will also get the option of choosing between two interior shades: Black/Saiga Beige and Black/Okapi Brown.
The new Q7 also witnesses subtle variations in styling as compared to its predecessor. On the outside, it will flaunt a tweaked octagonal front grille with chrome outlining. The grille will be flanked by a new set of LED headlights and redesigned LED DRLs. At the rear end, the facelifted Q7 features revised LED taillights connected to each other by a chrome bar running across the width of the car.
