Considering that the current generation is still pretty fresh, it is pretty much for sure that engineers from Ingolstadt will keep 2019 Audi Q7 away from bigger modifications.
Considering that the original version was in production for a full decade, between 2005 and 2015, it is easy to conclude that first changes of the model that came two years ago won’t come so soon. The current generation of the Audi’s most famous crossover features a pretty attractive design, which probably won’t suffer for another year or two.
Same goes with the engine lineup, which is full of VW’s reliable units. Still, constant updates are mandatory in these days when competition becomes tougher and tougher, so 2019 Q7 will most likely come with updates in terms of standard equipment. The new model will be equipped better, but we could also see changes in new exterior colors, interior schemes etc.
2019 Audi Q7 Redesign Won’t Happen So Soon
When it comes to base design characteristics, 2019 Audi Q7 redesign won’t happen so soon. This premium mid-size crossover will continue to ride on the VW’s versatile MLB architecture and share most of its mechanical parts with other mid-size crossovers from the VW Group, including Porsche Cayenne, VW Touareg, Bentley Bentayga etc.
On the other side, the visual appearance and 2019 Audi Q7 interior will be its own thing, without similarities with models from above. This crossover follows Audi’s newest design language, characterized by very sharp lines across the whole body, including front end. On the inside, horizontal lines dominate along with hi-quality materials. Of course, there is a long list of standard equipment which includes latest safety system, hi-tech gadgets, all kinds of connecting devices etc. Compared to the current model, the base trim level organization will remain unchanged.
Each Trim Level of 2019 Audi Q7 Will Come With Novelties
The trim level organization has always been pretty simple and we have no doubt that the 2019 Audi Q7 will continue in the same way. There are three trim levels in the offer – Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige.
Even the base Premium trim comes with an amazing list of standard equipment. Some of the highlights are three-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof, 7-inch touchscreen, as well as numerous active safety systems. For the next year, things like smartphone integration and navigation would be a great addition.
A mid-range Premium Plus includes all above, but also adds several interesting standard features. Some of them are premium Bose sound system, auto-dimming exterior mirrors and interior LED accent lights. Once again, expect few additions for the next year, LED headlights for example.
Which 2019 Audi Q7 to Buy?
Finally, there is a top-range Prestige trim, which adds bigger 20-inch wheels, power-closing doors, head-up display etc. There are also few optional packages. For the 2019 Audi Q7, a nice addition could be rear side-impact airbags. Still, a mid-level Premium Plus seems like the most reasonable choice.
Two Familiar Gasoline Engines Will Carry Over for the 2019 Audi Q7
The 2019 Audi Q7 will come without changes when it comes to powertrain. There are two gasoline engines in the offer for the North American market. In some other parts of the world, like Europe, VW’s famous TDI engines are also available.
The base engine for this mid-size crossover is an efficient 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit, which delivers around 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. It seems like a decent amount of horses for a mid-size SUV.
Still, an optional 3.0-liter V6 is definitely a better choice if you don’t care much about fuel economy. It features a max output of 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque, which is enough for a 0-60 time in about 5.8 seconds.
Both engines feature the same 8-speed automatic transmission.
2019 Audi Q7 release date and price
The 2019 Audi Q7 should come in usual time, somewhere in late 2018.
How Much Does Audi Q7 Cost?
We don’t expect changes in price, so base models should go around 51.000 dollars.
