Audi Q7 lightweight

Alexander Steigerwald, Audi Q7 front axle development.
Thanks to the new five-link front axle and systematic lightweight construction, 27 kilograms (59.5 lb) of weight have been shaved from the front axle alone compared with the previous model. All major components are made of aluminum. The forged aluminum pivot bearing alone saved nearly 7 kilograms (15.4 lb).
