Audi Q7 best seller in Abu Dhabi
The overwhelming demand that propelled the Audi Q7 to the position as best seller for Audi Abu Dhabi has now been passed on to the remastered new generation Audi Q7, according to recent sales figures.
Audi Abu Dhabi, represented by Ali & Sons Co. L.L.C. Motors Division, reports having sold almost 100% of the first shipment of the new Q7 models in less than two months since their arrival at the showroom and 40% of the second shipment within days of its arrival in the Capital.
“After its launch three-and-a-half years ago the Q7 skyrocketed in sales and now represents about 35% of all Audi passenger vehicle sales in Abu Dhabi, followed closely by the popular Audi A6,” comments Andrew Hellyar, Brand Manager of Audi Abu Dhabi.
“The official figures for car sales in the premium SUV segment rank the Q7 second among its core competitors. Considering that Audi is still relatively new to the market, it’s a strong vindication of how sought-after and highly respected this SUV is,” says Hellyar.
The product improved Audi Q7 was highly anticipated well ahead of its introduction. The official marketing campaign kicked off this week and will be visible in various media across the UAE and elsewhere in the region.
The latest Audi Q7 sports a single frame grille with vertical chrome bars that have been absorbed in the impressive front of the new Q7, while restyled bumpers and xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights add a further touch of class. The rear has also been given a distinct 3D shape, emphasised by LED rear lights.
The sporty exterior design of the Audi Q7 continues to impress while many interior improvements add to the luxury SUV’s sense of elegance: the new instrument cluster, ambient lighting in the door linings, new inlays and leather choices, as well as many chrome enhanced elements.
The most exciting addition is the new Multimedia Interface with navigation plus, a user-friendly interface with hard drive for music storage, 7–inch color display with high–quality resolution and 3D city models within the navigation. Mobile phone connectivity with phonebook access as well as easy iPod connection via the Audi Music Interface are also available.
In the Middle East the Audi Q7 is available either as a 3.6 quattro or a 4.2 quattro. The 3.6 FSI engine boasts a power output of 280 bhp, 360 Nm torque between 2,500 and 5,000 rpm. The 4.2 FSI, a V8, delivers 350 bhp, 440 Nm torque at 3,500 rpm.
