Exterior and Interior Changes
There’s no doubt concerning the design that Audi puts out in their vehicles. Similarly, this upcoming 2018 Audi Q7 is primarily based on its predecessor. But to feature refinements, certain stylistic design elements have been given to it.
Up front, its front fascia is dominated by a large hexagonal grille. This grille has vertical slats on the inside and horizontal slats on the outside. This grille is then accompanied by a pair of redesigned headlights. These headlights also feature Audi’s signature styling.
Its front bumper holds two separate sections at each side for housing the fog lights. Moving on, its side body and windscreen have been aerodynamically influenced. Changes will be prominent on its wheels too as a new set of aluminium wheels will be incorporated.
Its rear portion also holds several changes. Most importantly, its tailgate has been modified to be dynamic and robust to some extent. The taillights have also been modified; its rear bumper also holds some changes and a set of quad exhaust outlets on each side have been featured.
Moving towards the interior cabin of this vehicle, several changes will be brought in it. The primary focus of the company for bringing changes in this interior cabin will be for delivering a great driving enjoyment.
Comfort in this cabin will be taken to the next level as there will be superior selection over the upholstery materials. Certain readjustments of some controls will be done this time around. It has been said there will be improvements in the leg room, infotainment system, and the audio system. It has been said that a new framework will be laid out in this cabin, but this is not confirmed.
