German automaker Audi has pulled back the curtain on its eagerly awaited 2025 Q7 SUV, introducing a stunning redesign paired with cutting-edge features, including customizable laser headlights.
Scheduled for release in European markets in the first quarter of this year, the upgraded model showcases a new iteration of Audi’s iconic Singleframe grille, redesigned corner vents, and the option for HD Matrix lights featuring state-of-the-art laser light technology.
Exteriors: One of the standout features of the 2025 Audi Q7 is its customizable laser headlights, promising heightened visibility through a laser diode for each light. Activated at speeds surpassing 69.2 km/h with high beams engaged, this innovative system utilizes 24 LEDs to significantly extend the high beam range. Drivers can also personalize their experience by choosing from four distinctive lighting signatures for daytime running lights and updated LED taillights. However, availability in North America remains uncertain due to US regulations.
Interiors: Inside the vehicle, the base model of the 2025 Audi Q7 now comes with standard contrast stitching, 19-inch wheels, aluminum roof rails, and a rear-view camera with Parking Assist Plus. The interior boasts nine decorative inlays, and three new exterior colors – Ascari Blue, Chili Red, and Sakhir Gold – add a touch of sophistication. Wheel options ranging from 20 to 22 inches are available, ensuring a personalized aesthetic. The Q7’s infotainment system has also been upgraded to support third-party apps like Spotify, and additional driver-assist features have been integrated for enhanced safety.
Engines: For European buyers, the 2025 Audi Q7 offers a range of powertrain options. These include a 3.0-liter diesel engine with two tunes (228hp/282hp), a petrol-powered V6 (335hp), and a high-performance 500hp, 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine for the SQ7 version.
The SQ7, in particular, features distinctive elements like black trim, oval-shaped exhaust tips, a chin spoiler, and an impressive 0-97 km/h time of 4.1 seconds. The starting price for the new Q7 in Europe is €79,300 (approximately Rs. 71.3 lakh), although availability in the Indian market remains undisclosed.
This unveiling promises a glimpse into the future of luxury SUVs, with Audi pushing boundaries in design, technology, and performance.
