Audi has launched the new 2022 Audi Q7 facelift in India at starting price of Rs. 79.99 lakhs.

The company worked to make the SUV BS6 compliant and as a result has ditched the diesel engine totally from the line-up.

2022 Audi Q7 Launched at Rs 79.99 lakhs

The Q7 is back after a hiatus of nearly two years, since it was discontinued in the run up to BS6 emission norms in April 2020. The facelifted Audi Q7 gets an exterior makeover, a completely revamped interior and, most importantly, makes the switch to being a petrol-only SUV and will continue coming to India through the CKD route.

Rivals the likes of Mercedes-Benz GLE, BMW X5 and Volvo XC90

Changes to the Exterior:

The Audi Q7 facelift that has come to India is the same model that was revealed by the German company in 2019 and has that new Audi design language with even larger front grille with 6 vertical chrome strips, re-designed Matrix LED headlamps and new LED DRLs. The front bumper is more muscular with large air-intakes on the sides in place of the fog lamps.

From the side the big SUV seems the same apart from new alloy wheel design and chrome surround for the windows. Though the new car is longer by 11mm in length, one may not notice this subtle change which will however mean more legroom inside. The rear is new-look however with a big chrome strip running the entire width of the boot and it seamlessly integrates with the new LED taillamps. The rear bumper too is updated slightly.

Changes to the Interior:

The company, may not have completely redesigned the exteriors, but they have done some major work to the Audi Q7 facelift interior which now looks way sleeker and more modern in its design. It now gets a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment along-with an 8.6-inch touchscreen panel for the climate controls. The luxury SUV continues with the upgraded, digital instrument cluster, called the ‘virtual cockpit’ by Audi and looks similar to its bigger sibling the Audi Q8.
The Audi Q7 facelift 2022 continues to offer the 7-seat layout, which gives an upper hand over its rivals. The car also gets, features like, a panoramic sunroof, customisable ambient lighting, 4-zone climate control along-with safety features like 8 airbags, lane keeping assist, ESC and run-flat tyres among many others.

Engine and Transmission:

The new Audi Q7 facelift has a single 3.0L, V6 turbo petrol engine which makes 340hp of peak power and 500nm of peak torque while mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The engine comes with the iconic Quattro all wheel drive system as standard, giving power to the 4 wheels as well as comes with driving modes as well. The 2022 Q7 continues using a mild-hybrid system which enhances efficiency of the engine.

Price and Rivals:

Audi has launched the new Q7 in two different trims, namely the Audi Q7 premium plus starting price is Rs. 79.99 lakhs and the Audi Q7 technology starting price is Rs. 88.33 lakhs, (both these prices are introductory). The Audi Q7 facelift price keeps it on par with its rivals like the Mercedes Benz GLE starting price Rs. 79.9 lakhs, the BMW X5 starting price Rs. 76.5 lakhs and the Volvo XC90 starting price Rs. 89.9 lakhs.

The BMW X5 continues to offer three models, which are less expensive than all other of these cars but the Audi and Volvo SUVs are the only ones to offer 7-seat layout. Another thing to note is that both BMW and Mercedes offer their cars with diesel variants too, unlike the other two companies.

Benelli TRK 552X: Benelli has recently taken the wraps off from the all-new TRK 552X in the global market. The new ADV motorcycle replaces the previously available TRK 502X in the manufacturer’s lineup. The manufacturer has launched the new bike in the middle-weight segment. Though there is no information related to the India launch of the new TRK 552X, the ADV tourer motorcycle is expected to make its way to India in late 2024.

Benelli TRK 552X ADV Design

As far as the design is concerned, the new Benelli TRK 552X ADV gets a more contemporary design when compared to the TRK 502X. The Adventure motorcycle now comes with updated headlamps with LED pieces, a notable upgrade over the previous 502X. Some other design updates on the new TRK 552X are:

Suspension duties are handled by the potent Marzocchi USD forks at the front side and mono-shock at the rear end. Additionally, there are 19-inch wheels in the front and 17 inches at the rear, which come wrapped in Metzeler Tourance tyres. The 19-inch wheel in the front makes it an all-rounder motorcycle rather than just an off-roading ADV bike.

Benelli TRK 552X Engine and performance

As far as the power is concerned, the TRK 552X comes equipped with a powerful 552 cc, parallel twin engine which is capable of generating 60 bhp of power and 55 Nm of torque. The new powerhouse has a 270-degree crank which helps it give an improved exhaust note. Transmission duties are handled by a 6-speed unit which provides a smooth and reliable ride.

The kerb weight of TRK 552X is 246 kg which is quite more than its rivals such as the RE Himalayan 450 which weighs 196 kg. On the other hand, the braking duties are handled by disc brakes at both ends.
