Audi’s flagship SUV, the Q7, has been with us for quite a long time now, and the luxury crossover launched back in 2005 desperately needed a complete overhaul. The German automaker has finally unveiled the second generation Q7 that is set to one of the bigger launches at the 2015 Detroit Motor Show. Audi is bringing major changes to the 2015 Q7, including new technology, spacious interior, and a much more lightweight body. In fact, the Q7 has gone on a serious diet and lost a whopping 716.5 pounds lighter than its predecessor. The Q7 has an ultra-high-strength steel backbone in what Audi calls the “occupant cell,” and aluminum castings, extruded sections and panels are used in the front and rear of the body.
Coming to the styling of the new Q7, the fullsizer looks a lot sharper than its bloated predecessor thanks to re-styled frontend and crisp bodylines. The styling of the car shows new design philosophy that now sees its cars moving away from rounded edges to sharper features. The headlights can now be configured in the form of Xenons, LEDs or matrix LED headlights. However, the biggest improvement in the new generation model is its reworked interior, which looks fresh and modern.
