Audi Q7 is ideal sport for individualists – a performance SUV for the sports, leisure, family and business. Now, Audi has made it more powerful and effective, with a choice of V6 and three new 8-speed Tiptronic.
Machine: a new range
more power, greater efficiency: Audi has revised range of engines for the Q7. Two petrol engines, both V6 unit, but with a different power, is still new, and is the second generation V6 TDI. A wide range of finished V8 diesel. All motors for the Audi Q7 combines two technologies: the forced induction and direct flight refueling. A healing system that collects high-efficiency energy during braking is also a standard feature with all six and eight cylinders.
strategy of downsizing New petrol engine 3.0 TFSI Audi to achieve: the large engine and supercharger replaced. In an angle of 90 degrees formed by the cylinder block there is a motor-driven compressor compresses intake air. Two air freight interchanges to prevent the increase of air temperature, so that the engine will pull more oxygen to the combustion process. encourage strong and spontaneous throttle response and engine 3.0 TFSI with a strong note, a resource that is ideal for big performance SUV from Audi.
Two versions of the supercharged V6 is available. Basic version developed 200 kW (272 hp) and maximum torque of 400 Nm (295.02 ? feet) over wide engine speed range of 2250 to 4750 rpm. This is accelerating the Audi Q7 7.9 seconds from the start stand up to 100 km / h (62.14 mph) and give a top speed of 222 km / h (137.94 mph) or 225 kph (139.81 mph) with adaptive air suspension.
Stronger version of the 3.0 TFSI allow the 245 kW (333 hp) and torque of 440 Nm (324.53 ? ft) between 2900 and 5300 rpm. 100 km / h (62.14 mph) can be achieved in 6.9 seconds, with the strong growth continues until 243 km / h (150.99 mph), which has been carried out, with top speed adaptive air suspension is 245 km / h (152, 24 mph). Both versions are impressive 3.0 TFSI Efficient fuel consumption test cycle of the European Union they are satisfied with 10.7 liters per 100 kilometers (21.98 U.S. mpg). Compared to the previous engine, 3.6 FSI and 4.2 FSI, fuel consumption was reduced by 1.4 and 2.0 litres/100km – 12 and 16 per cent.
The second generation 3.0 TDI, a new development, has been effective not the same as its predecessor – except a lot of energy! At a nominal power of 176 kW (240 hp) and 550 Nm constant (? 405.66 ft) of torque all the way from 1750 to 2500 rpm. This V6 diesel Audi Q7 accelerate the loss of the main typical road speed 100 km / h (62.1 mph) in 7.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 215 km / h (133.59 mph) or a adaptive air suspension, 218 kph (135.46 mph). fuel consumption is impressively low, an average of 7.4 liters per 100 km (31.79 U.S. mpg), equivalent CO2 emissions of 195 grams per kilometer (313.82 g / mile). This represents an increase of 1.7 l/100 km, or 19 percent.
Latest 3.0 TDI engine weighs much less than before: 198 pounds (436.52 ?), a decrease of 20 kg (? 44.09). A new time network based on the tooth and the process of engine cylinder walls of the complex has reduced internal friction. The new turbocharger has been very responsive, make him feel that the rapid accumulation of torque. Rail injection system has also been a new development: it has a maximum pressure of 2000 bar and can not inject fuel into a jet very accurate.
The crankcase and cylinder head of the new 3.0 TDI has a separate water cooling circuits interconnected by Valve. During the heating phase and when the load is not high, coolant is not circulating in the engine block. This saves energy and raise its oil faster operational temperatures. start-stop systems switch off the engine when the new Audi Q7 is the jam.
Audi also offers customers a second version of TDI V6 3.0 TDI clean diesel. This has already reached the limits of exhaust emissions as specified in the Euro 6 standard, which does not take effect until 2014, and regulations of the United States are also difficult. Sensor in the combustion chamber, fuel injection common rail system pressure to 2000 bar and deliver high performance exhaust system for exhaust gas recirculation to keep emissions to a minimum untreated. A catalytic converter in the exhaust system DeNOx reduces residual nitrogen oxides by the additive. 3.0 TDI Clean Diesel engine that develops 176 kW (240 hp) and an impressive 550 Nm (405.66 ?-ft) of torque between 2000 and 2250 rpm. It takes the Audi Q7 from standstill to 100 km / h (62.14 mph) 8.1 seconds and a top speed of 215 km / h (133.59 mph), or 218 km / h suspension (135.46 mph) with adaptive air. Average fuel consumption is 8.4 liters per 100 km (28.00 mpg U.S.).
Audi Q7 4.2 TDI also significantly reduces fuel consumption – 9.9 (23.76 U.S. mpg) to 9.2 liters per 100 km (25.57 mpg U.S.) – by installing a fuel injection system and minimize the Bar 2000 internal friction. Yet at the same time V8 diesel power does not change above 250 kW (340 hp), which provides more torque than the previous. rpm now provides powerful 800 Nm (590.05 ? ft) between 1750 and 2750 engine. Large TDI engine gives the Audi Q7 performance figures worthy of a sports car. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h (62.14 mph) in 6.4 seconds and a top speed of 242 km / h (150.37 mph).
Power Transmission: Eight-speed is standard
Audi has given every six and eight cylinder version of the Audi Q7 a new automatic transmission. The eight Tiptronic reduce fuel consumption rate of five per cent. This is based on six-speed unit, but with the movement of other elements added to the friction clutch. Able to switch between the eight ratios to keep the jump in the engine speed at low engine was still running close to the optimum operating point. All quick change of speed, flexibility and runs very smoothly without any delay.
7.25 to 1, the overall spread of ratios of the width of eight-speed Tiptronic extraordinary. In the low ratio of speeding up the Audi Q7 is high, a higher ratio of rolling along efficiently at low revs.
To reduce fuel consumption further, the torque converter slip or eliminate restrictions on low speed. Each engine vibration that can occur as a result of pressure by a new damper in the torque converter until almost no trace could be detected.
Drivers can choose between D and S programs – or create their own gear shift selector lever on the transmission or optional steering wheel paddles. In combination with the 3.0 TDI tiptronic eight new speed reached a very high level of efficiency. Cooling oil is heated after a cold start by cooling the heat of the cooling system. electric oil pump that is the Audi Q7 start the operating system continuously as possible: it keeps the oil pressure in the hydraulic system when the engine stopped and the clutch cover for the restart.
Eight Tiptronic transmission transfers engine power to the chain of transmission Permanent all-wheel quattro. It divides power through the sport, with 40 percent going to the front and 60 percent to the rear wheels, but in particular on-or off-road situations, mechanical center differential that can direct action until to 65 per cent of the power forward or up to 85 percent to the rear.
Chassis: Agile and Secure
Audi Q7 is a character who was at the house where they are. In this way, with superior handling right, sports, and where the surface ends Hardtop shows impressive off-road characteristics. double wishbone suspension uses aluminum, attached to a separate sub-frames. Wheel bearing has been optimized to reduce friction. Servotronic steering system varies the power level of assistance based on vehicle speed.
Optional adaptive air suspension (standard on the Q7 4.2 TDI and Q7 V12 TDI) to the ride height control electronics varies damping to fit the actual situation. In high-speed roads that reduce the body to improve stability and fuel consumption is lower. The whole terrain can increase the body if the button is pressed. In the standard MMI terminal driver can choose between five different modes: comfort, automatic, dynamic, all-terrain and a lift. The adaptive air suspension is also available in a dynamic S line.
Audi Q7 is equipped with 18 inch wheels with tires 235/60 or 255/55, depending on the chosen machine. But the other wheels of 21 inches diameter may be chosen as an option. Braking is guarded by large ventilated discs. With the two most powerful engines bigger hard drive because of the lightweight carbon fiber reinforced ceramic materials that are available. They are firmly set when the need arises calipers with black letters Audi “ceramic.” ESP stabilization program including off-road mode as a standard that gives priority to the traction free surfaces. And when he met the driver on the steep off-road, downhill assist is helpful.
