2012 Audi Q7 V6 TDI is a Worthy Competitor in the Diesel Luxury Full-size SUV Segment
Audi’s latest entrant to the luxury full-size SUV segment, the 2012 Audi Q7 V6 TDI might just be the company’s way of saying they are still very much in the game. The full-size crossover SUV scores high on presence with its streamlined body and aggressive looks. The insides live up to the brands reputation, but the interior space is a bit limited because of the low, sloping roofline.
The 3.0L V6 turbodiesel engine features a direct fuel injection system with a variable BorgWarner turbocharger and yields a performance rivaling that of a V8. With an acceleration of 60 mph in 8.5 seconds it may not be as quick as the BMW X5xDrive35d but is definitely more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz ML/GL350 CDI and comfortably fits into a class somewhere between both the vehicles. Ride quality, as expected, is top-notch, and the vehicle drives like a dream when it comes to highway cruising.
