Audi Q7 3.0T: First drive review

Audi Q7 3.0T

Nice driving review here of the Audi Q7 3.0T. Have a look!

lready installed in the A6 and S4, the 3.0 TFSI, as Audi calls it, is rapidly becoming the company’s gasoline workhorse in its medium-to-larger-size vehicles. The main features are an aluminum block that weighs just 73 pounds and displaces 2995 cc, and benzindirekteinspritzung, or direct fuel injection. The Roots-type twin-screw intercooled supercharger that mounts in the vee is relatively small at a displacement volume of just 2.0 liters, which Audi says helps deliver the fast, seamless ramp up in torque—a critical element if you hope to sell V-8 buyers on a V-6. Boost pressure peaks at 11.6 psi.
