Video – Audi UK shows off new Q7 going through ice, wind and snow

The new Q7 is without any doubt one of Audi’s most important models, so the high number of ads shouldn’t really come as a surprise.

A new one was recently uploaded on the company’s UK channel on YouTube and in the attached footage we get to see the second generation of Ingolstadt’s SUV being driven “effortlessly” through ice, wind and snow. Needless to say, it’s all possible thanks to the vehicle’s standard quattro permanent all-wheel drive system which provides optimal traction regardless of road conditions.

Corroborated with punchy diesel and gasoline engines, the new Q7 certainly won’t leave you stranded somewhere in the middle of nowhere as its powerful engine corroborated with AWD and a plethora of driving assistance systems have created a car that can go virtually anywhere.

A versatile vehicle such as the new Q7 would not be complete without a luxurious interior cabin which the new model certainly offers, thanks to upscale materials and an overall posh appearance also helped by the simplified layout thanks to the adoption of a digital instrument cluster and a state-of-the-art MMI infotainment system which has killed many of the physical buttons and knobs, thus enabling a cleaner look.

If you are into performance, there’s an SQ7 on its way with an upgraded V8 4.0 TDI delivering 435 PS (320 kW) sent to the quattro AWD setup through a tiptronic gearbox. The model is expected to show up next week at IAA in Frankfurt.
