Top-spec Audi Q7 S line models announced
Audi's top-of-the-range SUV is now available with two different styling packs
Two new versions of the Audi Q7 have been revealed, designed to sit at the top of the SUV range.
The Audi Q7 S line Style Edition (the blue car shown here) and more expensive Audi Q7 S line Sport Edition (shown in white) are based on the top-of-the-range S line Plus model, which features large 21-inch alloy wheels, powerful xenon headlights, leather upholstery and Audi’s electronic parking system, as standard. The new cars share the same specification as this model but offer additional styling features.
The S line Style Edition gives the Q7 a more rugged, off-road look. It gets unique matt titanium-finish alloy wheels instead of the standard five-spoke ones and has been given stainless steel protectors on the underside of the car, plus modified wheelarches and bodywork to match the car’s main colour. There are seven different colours to choose from, including a blue, a brown and a range of greys and blacks.
The rugged styling of an off-roader isn’t to everyone’s taste, so Audi has also produced a more aggressive, muscular bodykit for the S line Sport Edition. Modifications to the standard Audi Q7 S line Plus model include body-coloured wheelarch extensions, bigger air intakes on the front of the car and lower bumper spoilers. The sporty version of the Q7 also gets dual oval exhaust pipes integrated into the rear bumper, and customers can choose from all 13 colours available in the Q7 range.
Both the new versions are available with either a 242bhp 3.0-litre TDI diesel engine or the bigger 4.2-litre TDI, which produces 335bhp. The S line Style Edition is £1,500 more than the standard S line Plus model, while the S line Sport Edition is an extra £3,000. At £64,100, the 4.2-litre TDI S line Sport Edition becomes the most expensive Audi Q7 in the current model line-up. Both of the new Q7 models are available to order now.
