Thanks to Audi’s systematic lightweight construction concept, the SQ7 TDI weighs just 2,270 kilograms (5,004.5 lb) without a driver while offering strong performance with respect to crash safety, torsional rigidity and acoustic comfort. In the multimaterial body, hot-shaped and ultra-high-strength sheets form the backbone of the occupant cell.
The outer skin is made of aluminum. The drag coefficient is just 0.34, and the center of gravity is low. This factor also sharpens the sporty character.
The Audi SQ7 TDI impresses with its masculine formal idiom. At 5.07 meters (16.6 ft), it is roughly as long as the base model. It is 1.97 meters (6.5 ft) wide, 1.74 meters (5.7 ft) tall and has a wheelbase of 3.00 meters (9.8 ft). All lines and surfaces are precise and concise. The sculpted Singleframe radiator grille, the distinctively highlighted wheels and the flared quattro-styled blisters emphasize the Audi genes.
Specific details hone the look of the new top model, for which there is a choice of 12 paint finishes. The Singleframe grill, the air inlets with their dual slats, the upper section of the exterior mirror housings and elements of the door trim gleam in an aluminum look. The front apron is powerfully contoured; chiseled sills accentuate the flanks of the Audi SQ7 TDI. The roof edge spoiler is wider and more distinctive than that of the Q7*. A diffuser insert with an aluminum clasp encloses the four rectangular exhaust tailpipes. SQ7 TDI and V8T emblems adorn the front, the fenders and the rear.
LED headlights and dynamic rear turn signals are standard. Optionally available is Matrix LED technology, with which the high beam for each headlight is split up into 30 individual light-emitting diodes. With their highly precise control system, they illuminate the road superbly without blinding oncoming traffic. The Matrix LED headlights also include intelligent cornering lights.
