The 2016 Audi Q7 ultra 3.0 TDI quattro is now available on order across Europe and costs €58,000 in Germany. It’s the most economical version of the range as Audi is quoting a fuel consumption in the average cycle of only 5.5 liters / 100 km thanks to an economical six-cylinder, 3.0-liter TDI engine which pushes out 218 PS and 500 Nm of torque. Fitted with this engine, the full-size SUV from Ingolstadt has CO2 emissions of only 144 g/km and is 28% more efficient compared to the previous model. It’s fairly quick as well since the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) takes 7.1 seconds before topping out at 134 mph (216 km/h).
It should be mentioned there’s another Audi Q7 3.0 TDI quattro version but without the “ultra” badge which means that it’s less economical. In non-“ultra” guise, the model has 272 PS and covers the sprint in 6.3 seconds while top speed stands at 145 mph. It’s also thirstier as it will consume 5.7 liters / 100 km, with corresponding CO2 emissions of 149 g/km.
Deliveries of the 2016 Audi Q7 ultra 3.0 TDI quattro will kick off next month for the European market where the model has been available since mid-June with a 3.0 TFSI gasoline engine producing 333 PS.
