Audi is determined to offer a variation of the Q7 SUV for everyone! They offer this car with a massive V12 turbodiesel for those who want power and now a frugal 3.0 liter V6 diesel for those who don’t! The thing is though, those who want an frugal car barley think about purchasing an enormous SUV such as the Q7.

OK if we cut to the chase, the Q7 3.0 TDI offers 150 kW (204 hp) while consuming an average of just 7.2 liters of diesel per 100 km (32.67 miles per U.S. gallon). It comes as standard with eight-speed tiptronic and quattro permanent all-wheel drive round out the luxurious drivetrain.

To make it more efficient, Audi has also specially lightened it. It weighs far less than 200 kilograms (440.92 lb) and extensive measures minimize internal friction.

Innovative thermal management – a new feature of many Audi engines – is particularly complex in the 3.0 TDI. The crankcase and the cylinder heads have separate cooling water circuits; coolant is not circulated within the block while the engine is warming up.

As for the performance, the Q7 3.0 TDI accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 9.1 seconds. In the version with an optional air suspension, it reaches a top speed of 205 km/h (127.38 mph); with steel suspension, 202 km/h (125.52 mph).

The entry-level version of this diesel model is priced at 51,800 in Germany.
