Next-gen Audi Q7 to undergo major design, tech, powertrain overhaul, Global Debut by 2026

Key Highlights

  • Global debut in 2026.
  • Redesigned front end with an octagonal grille.
  • Evolved MLB platform for new engines and plug-in hybrids.
  • Introduction of a new family of engines, including a potent V8.
  • Inspired interior from Q6 e-tron, panoramic curved interface.
  • Q7 to yield largest SUV status to the upcoming Q9.
  • Audi's shift to electric models exclusively by 2026.

Third-gen Q7 to Undergo a Major Transformation

Audi, the renowned German automaker, is gearing up for the global debut of the third-generation Q7 SUV, scheduled to take center stage by 2026. This revelation comes with a significant twist, as the upcoming Q7 will mark one of the final chapters for combustion-engine-powered Audi cars, aligning with the brand's commitment to transitioning to electric models exclusively by 2026.

Next-gen Q7 Features

  1. Enhanced Platform: The next-gen Q7 will sit on an updated MLB architecture, the backbone of the current Q7, with modifications tailored to accommodate a new family of engines, including extended-range plug-in hybrids.
  2. Powertrain Evolution: While official powertrain details remain covered in secrecy, Audi has confirmed the introduction of a "completely new family of engines." Expect a variety of options, including mild-hybrid petrol and diesel engines, with a high-performance SQ7 variant featuring a tweaked version of Audi's potent twin-turbocharged petrol V8.
  3. Striking Design Overhaul: Drawing inspiration from Audi's upcoming Q3 and Q5, the new Q7 will boast a redesigned front end, featuring an expansive octagonal grille and sleek, split-cluster LED light designs. The straight roofline and a boxy rear maintain a focus on interior space and boot capacity.
  4. Futuristic Interior: The Q7's interior will mirror the design language introduced in the Q6 e-tron, showcasing a panoramic curved interface for the driver display and infotainment. Additionally, passengers will enjoy a separate touchscreen for the front passenger and an optional augmented-reality head-up display for real-time navigation guidance projections.

Strategic Positioning: Q7 vs. Q9

As the Q7 undergoes this transformation, it is noteworthy that it will relinquish its status as Audi's largest SUV. The German automaker plans to introduce the Q9, a larger and more luxurious model set to rival the likes of the BMW X7 and Mercedes-Benz GLS, around the same time. In the interim, Audi has unveiled the second facelift for the current Q7, ensuring its continued relevance in the market until the arrival of the all-new, electrified Q7.

CarBike360 Says

As Audi continues to push the boundaries of innovation, the next-gen Q7 stands as a testament to the brand's commitment to a future dominated by electric mobility. The automotive world eagerly awaits the unveiling of this technological marvel in 2026.
