Last week a report emerged confirming that Audi is going to bring a more powerful version of the second-generation Q7, SQ7, in 2016. Now, AutoExpress is reporting more details on the SQ7 with spy shots of the performance-spec SUV.
There are some clearly visible differences in the front-end. The headlamps design has been changed with a horizontal Y-shaped cluster towards the inner side and a single beam projector headlight towards the outer side. The front foglight surround feature two chrome blades instead of the three black plastic blades on the standard model. Another change in the exterior is that the underbody guard is not body-coloured. Four large exhaust pipes give the S model a sporty appeal.
As reported earlier, the SQ7 is likely to sport a 4.2-litre or a 4.0-litre TDI V8 diesel engine with electric turbocharging technology which Audi calls ‘e-boost’. The turbocharging technology was previewed on the 2014 RS5 TDI-e concept. It basically aims at eliminating turbo lag usually experienced at low rpm.
