How is the design of Audi Q7
The interior design of the Audi Q7 was inspired by the wood interior used in a luxury yacht. Base models come with leather seating, ambient door lighting, interior colour choices, and the most up to date infotainment system which includes a Multi Media Interface that has an optional feature which allows the manipulation of mp3 enabled devices. This an optional feature is called the Audi Music Interface (AMI). New to the exterior of the 2016 Audi Q7 would be a Modular Infotainment Matrix (MIB) with NVIDIA T30 processor, and an Audi Tablet. With no major changes in the exterior of the Audi Q7, the second generation would include; changes made to the exterior front and rear lights, incorporated with an LED lighting system, Chrome Accents, and updated styling of the front and rear end and new wheel designs.
What are the standout features of the Audi Q7
With no major changes made to the exterior of the Audi Q7, we cannot attribute any stand out features regarding design. But, what the German manufacturers improve upon is safety. This safety improvements has led to the Audi Q7 being given an Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rating of “good” with regards to front, side and rear impact collision. Also, the Audi Q7 is one of the “Safest” SUVs around, with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) giving the SUV the highest ratings for front and side impact protection, and for rollover resistance, a 4 star rating. It is also notable to say that another standout feature of the Audi Q7 has to be improvement in its fuel efficiency. A 10% improvement might not be a lot, but it sure makes a significant change in the amount an Audi Q7 driver pays for petrol.
Nigerian Used and Tokunbo Audi Q7 in Nigeria
Since its introduction to the Automobile industry, the Audi Q7 has gained popularity amongst motor vehicle owners in Nigeria, with many crossover owners owning more than one Audi Q7 at once. With the release of newer models, a few owners are willing to sell their previously owned vehicles. Also, car dealers and individuals import the Audi Q7 into the country to sell to people willing to purchase, so there is no shortage of the Audi Q7 available locally in Nigeria.
The Best Audi Q7 year to Buy
With the second generation 2016 Audi Q7 being released in January 2015, it should be the best Audi Q7 to purchase at the moment. The 2016 Audi Q7 promises to be the most refined Audi Q7 ever, surpassing the facelift received by the 2008/2009 production year. Audi will be making the Audi Q7 more narrow, yet achieving more cargo space, and will still offer third row seating. Being that the 2016 second generation model was released a while ago, not a lot of units are available for purchase in the Nigerian auto market. We are hopeful that in a few months, more units would be available, but in the meantime, that should not stop people from purchasing the first generation models like the 2014 Audi Q7 and 2010 Audi Q7.
Audi Q7 Price in Nigeria
By international prices and the current dollar/naira rate, the estimated price of the Audi Q7 should be at a starting price of about N13,000,000. Unfortunately, the second generation is less than a month old, so even foreign used ones would still be around that price range. The first generation is much available with a various selection of both foreign used (Tokunbo) and Nigerian used ones available locally in Nigeria.
Foreign Used (Tokunbo) and Nigerian Used (Registered) Audi Q7 for sale may be sold within the price range found below, depending on the odometer readings and general state of the vehicles;
- 2012 Audi Q7 – 2015 Audi Q7: N4,000,000 – N8,000,000
Overall impression of Audi Q7
Despite its performance ratings and stylish interior and exterior design, the Audi Q7 still has to compete with Crossover SUVs such as the Mercedes Benz GL-Class, the BMW X5 and the Acura RDX. The 2016 Audi Q7 is one of the few SUVs that would be coming with “World first innovations” such as; a very-high-speed FlexRay optical fiber data bus technology. What it does is that it connects all the electronic and electrical systems in the vehicle, especially the all new multimedia system, the air suspension (adaptive) and a host of new driver assistance systems. It will also offer a ”turning Assistance” system, which monitors oncoming traffic and turns the vehicle to avoid collisions or might brake the car if in a serious situation. These and a host of other intelligent technologies are why the Audi Q7 promised to be an astounding crossover SUV to own. The first generation also surpassed the expectation of individuals, and that is why it clearly has a large market in the Nigerian automobile market.
