Audi PH will launch the lighter and more spacious Q7

Audi PH is set to launch the 2016 Q7 as the company's new challenger in the premium SUV segment.

First previewed during the 2015 North American International Auto Show last January, Audi says the all-new Q7 is lighter and more spacious compared to its predecessor.

Up front, the 2016 Q7 is fitted with a singleframe grill that features thick crossbars. It also comes with LED headlights and daytime running lights which are shaped like a double arrow. The rear on the other hand has distinctive taillights, a large bumper and the brand's dynamic turn signals.

Audi PH boss Benedicto Coyiuto said that the 2016 Q7 is a statement of the brand's competence. Coyiuto adds that the all-new Q7 is about 26-percent more efficient as compared to its predecessor.

“The all-new Q7 is a statement of Audi’s competence. It is around 26 percent more efficient and is equipped with the latest assistance systems, infotainment modules and connect features. We are looking forward to introducing this new high tech model to the Filipinos,” said Coyiuto.

Audi PH will launch the 2016 Q7 tomorrow, December 10.
