Audi Q7: Still Bearing the Classic Touch

Author: Jenny McLane
The Audi Q7 was first unveiled for an exclusive group of
journalists. However, it was a closed-door affair that turned
out to be quite a successful one with several people from Audi
of America joining in to answer any questions regarding the new
Audi Q7. The new Audi Q7 is built on the very same platform that
is also used by the Volkswagen Touareg and the Porsche Cayenne.
It also holds a wheelbase that is quite longer than the
Volkswagen Touareg by almost six inches. This kind of wheelbase
then provides the Audi Q7 an overall look that exudes a sleek
and stretched look.

The Audi Q7 is a sport utility vehicle. This vehicle has
proportions that when combined work out very nicely providing a
strong look. The vehicle contains and features headlights, tail lights, rear
view mirrors and door handles that exude the
traditional look that is considered to be simply an Audi. The
Audi Q7 SUV has a grill that goes well
with the vehicle's painted horizontal strip and as well as the
adopted standard dark gray that is quite standard for Audi's
vehicle lineup. Compared to the other models in the Audi family,
the chrome strip around the grille for the Audi Q7 is considered
to be quite narrow thus assisting greatly in making the grille
of the Audi Q7 look a less overpowering.

It could be noticed that the Audi Q7 has the very same classic
proportions that Audi Avants have. This includes a high shoulder
line, a narrow window area, a sloping roofline that moves
towards the rear of the Audi Q7, and an angled rear window.
These all combine to provide a classy look for this sport
utility vehicle. Basically, the taillights of the Audi Q7 are
very much like the Audi Avant with its tips forming top corners
of the license plate opening. Other than that, the Audi Q7 also
has a rear bumper that has two long and thin reflectors mounted
on it. This rear bumper holds the added
assumed function of being turn signals or rear fog lights.

Setting the Audi Q7 apart from the Volkswagen Touareg and the
Porsche Cayenne is this vehicle's optional third row seating.
The center row for this sport utility vehicle has the ability to
fold back down and slide forward, thus giving ample and easy
access to the rear seating. It also contains a middle row that
has the capacity to slide forward and provide more legroom for
the rear seats. As for the third row, this entire row of seats
could fold flat on the floor when it is not utilized. This gives
more cargo area in the rear. The Audi Q7 also has an electronic
control for this third row.
