The updated 2020 Audi SQ7 has arrived in Oz priced from $161,500 plus on-road costs.
Powering the seven-seat SQ7 is a 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 diesel engine with mild-hybrid technology producing 320kW and 900Nm, the latter is available between 1250 and 3250rpm.
An eight-speed tiptronic transmission sends power to Audi’s quattro permanent all-wheel drive system.

Depending on the final spec, fuel consumption is listed between 7.4-7.6L/100km on the combined cycle.
Standard equipment highlights include adjustable air suspension, rear-wheel steering, 22-inch alloy wheels, HD Matrix LED headlights, a panoramic glass sunroof and soft-close doors.
On the inside, buyers get Valcona leather trim, an electric steering column, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster (virtual cockpit), four-zone climate control, a head-up display, wireless smartphone charging, a 360-degree camera, four USB ports, and Audi’s latest 10.1-inch infotainment system featuring satellite navigation with Google Earth overlays, wireless Apple CarPlay and digital radio.
