Audi Q7 4.2 TDI: Serious diesel muscle

Audi Q7 4.2 TDI
Here’s a very nice review of the Audi Q7 4.2 TDI from South Africa.

Audi has dubbed its Q7 4.2 TDI “the most powerful diesel SUV in South Africa”. With 240 kW on tap and a 236 km/h top whack, we’re inclined to agree…

This latest addition to the Q7 range plays host to a twin-turbo 4,2-litre V8 diesel engine that develops an impressive 240 kW and a remarkable 760 Nm of torque, which is available between 1 800 and 2 500 rpm. The engine is mated with Audi’s six-speed Tiptronic transmission as standard and propels the Q7 4,2 TDI from 0-100 km/h in just 6,4 seconds on the way to a 236 km/h top speed.

Not only does this newcomer boast impressive performance figures , but also respectable fuel economy as well. The Q7 4,2 TDI is reportedly capable of covering 900 km from its 100-litre tank.

This model employs the latest version of Audi’s Quattro permanent four-wheel drive system. Off-road, the torque converter with its damping action and torque multiplication is particularly useful when driving off and when driving slowly on inclines.
