A prototype of the all-new 2020 Audi Q7 has been spotted during its testing wearing camouflage all over the body. However, based on the place of the coverings, we assume that the new Q7 will get some changes of the front and rear fascias while the interior will feature some new materials and updated infotainment system. The choice of the engine will remain the same but the Q7 should also offer a new plug-in hybrid powertrain.
2020 Audi Q7 engines and performances
The newest 2020 Audi Q7 will be powered by several types of engines and there should be one new engine in the offer. So, to start with the base 2.0-liter inline-4 turbocharged engine which will be able to make 248 horses and the torque of 273 pound-feet. The engine will work with an 8-speed automatic transmission and the all-wheel drive system will be standard for all the engines. It will be able to tow up to 4,400 pounds and will get 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
The next unit will be a 3.0-liter V-6 supercharged engine which will use the same 8-speed automatic and AWD system. It will be capable of making 329 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. Its maximum towing capacity will be limited to 7,700 pounds. As for the fuel economy, it is rated at 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
Furthermore, the carmaker should also offer a plug-in hybrid engine for the European market. And this powertrain ill combined a 3.0-liter TDI diesel engine with an electric motor. However, we still don’t have the information about its performance.
