Quite frankly, we can’t wait to see what the new and lighter Audi Q7 is going to look like. But until then, we’re going to have to settle with these special-edition models that the German company has just released for the UK market.
In addition to the Q7 S Line Style Edition, the other "unique" model is the Q7 S Line Sport Edition, which comes with its own unique set of upgrades that standard Q7s don’t offer. Among the modifications you’ll see in the S Line Sport Edition include body-colored wheel arch extensions, which adds more width to the full-sized SUV.
Enlarged front air intakes with high gloss slats, lower bumper spoilers, a stainless steel underbody protection, and dual oval exhaust tailpipes integrated into the rear bumper are also part of the package, all of which add character and performance enhancements to the SUV . The changes may not be all that evident at first glance, but they’re there, and Audi put them in there for a reason.
A full slate of paint finishes are also offered for the Q7 S Line Sport Edition. There are 13 choices in all with varying paint effects, including solid, metallic and pearl.
Both S Line models come with "standard equipment" that are unique to both of ’em, if that even makes sense. Privacy glass from the B-pillar rearward, xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lamps, fancy Verano leather upholstery and stainless-steel side running boards are among the features list, as is a powered tailgate operation, an HDD satellite navigation, the Audi parking system advanced with visual and acoustic guidance, the Audi Music Interface, Audi connect, adaptive air suspension, and double glazing.
That’s a lot of features, fellas, and maybe a big reason why Audi is touting both these full-sized models to its customers.
Anybody interested in the Q7 S Line Sport Edition will have to spend anywhere from £52,975 ($72,462) to £64,100 ($87,,679).
