The most powerful diesel Audi, the Q7 4.2 TDI is heading to South Africa for market introduction in February next year.
The 4.2-litre capacity of the V8, which is overseas available in the A8 too, generates an output of 240 kW and 760 Nm of torque at engine speeds between 1 800 to 2 500 r/min.
This Q7 derivative accelerates from standstill to 100 km/h in 6.4 seconds and has a top speed of 236 km/h.
The Audi Q7 4.2 TDI transmits its power through a six-speed tiptronic gearbox and a sportily tuned quattro driveline.
Audi’s “adaptive air suspension” is standard on the 4.2 TDI too.
