2014 Audi Q7 Continues to Rule!

The Audi Q7 has been a benchmark and a true legend when it comes to the three rowed SUVs that are available in the market. Though many companies gave their best shots at the segment, resulting in the enrichment of the SUV world, the legendary Audi Q7 still remains to be among the brightest of these all! Already known for the extremely luxurious interiors as well as the sturdy engineering, the 2014 Audi Q7 brings to its lovers a lot more of than the previous models, and is anticipated to rule the category the coming year as well!

Audi’s Q7, as mentioned above, remains to be one of the most sought after choices among customers with large families. Its powerful engine and amazing performance enables it to deliver an extremely satisfying ride quality for its size and also gives it a lot of power for towing purposes. However, the Q7 comes with a longer wheelbase as compared to its major competitors. This means that the Q7 isn’t really designed for extreme off road purposes. The road oriented all-wheel drive that the Q7 comes with also points towards the same. However, this also means that the vehicle is capable of delivering some of the most refined on road performances of its class, making it an excellent urban choice. The longer wheelbase only adds to the already amazing ride quality that the SUV is famous for!

The SUV remains to be as elegant on the outside as it was before. With a serious lack of aggressive truck like looks, the Q7 manages to win hearts just by its pure elegance and sophistication. However, step inside and you’ll notice the real difference between the 2014 and 2014 models! The interior cabin of the new 2014 Q7 has been made much more spacious than before. Starting from the front row, you will easily notice the increased leg room, making the seats much more comfortable for taller people. The second row is also quite spacious, and the panoramic sunroof adds to the spacious feeling. However, the third row seems to be dedicated for kids only as the entrance as well as the seating space is relatively lesser. Also, the cargo space floor is set higher, making the cargo space relatively lesser than the other SUVs of the same size.

The company plans to launch the SUV in four different models – Premium, Premium Plus, Premium TDI and the S Line Prestige. Besides the Premium TDI model, all others are petrol driven vehicles. Audi has replaced the old V8 engines with the 3000 cc V6 supercharged engine for the Q7. The first two models boast of a power output of 280 horsepower while the top model delivers 333 horsepower. However, the TDI model takes the victory as it is as capable in terms of performance as the petrol engines but features a much better fuel economy. The 2014 Q7 also comes loaded with a number of amazing luxury features like the Audi’s internet-connected MMI interface with navigation, Wi-Fi hotspot capability, Google Earth Maps, Bang & Olufsen audio systems, etc.

Lamborghini’s SUV to be Produced Earlier Than Previously Stated!

Earlier we reported how the Lamborghini’s gorgeous compact SUV, Urus saw some hindrances in its pre-production life. It’s production itself was in jeopardy for some time. The company’s CEO, Stephan Winkelman later stated that the Urus will go under production by 2017. Lamborghini fans and those who are waiting for the Urus hold your breath, for the SUV is all set to go under production very soon!

After all the problems that the Urus faced regarding its production, the SUV has finally received the final green light. The CEO disclosed that the SUV will be out in the markets pretty soon. However, he did not disclose the exact date. “We’re going low profile now,” Winkelmann declared. “I can’t tell you much on details now, but when we get close to the launch, we will have more.” It seems as if the company might have introduced even more amazing changes in the already gorgeous SUV! Time will tell!

The production of the SUV was delayed last year due to the economic conditions of the European markets. The company developed the SUV further during this phase. Now the Urus is all set to be manufactured. Winkelman also declared that although the Chinese mrket has been a huge boon for Lamborghini, the nation has cut low on the purchases of end trim luxury items. Hence, the best markets for the Urus shall be Japan, the gulf countries and the United States of America.

Besides the fact that it is a Lambo SUV, there are a number of enthralling things about the Urus which ensure that the SUV is capable of being better than all others in the market! Urus will be much lighter than its competitors as its body is to be made up of carbon fibre. The main competitors like the Volkswagen Touareg, Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q7, etc. all will be at least a hundred kilograms heavier than the Urus. An interesting thing to note here is that all these three SUVs share the same platform with the Urus, the MQB platform. Also, Lamborghini’s being eco-friendly with this one as the engine has been paired with a hybrid system using an electric motor for developing the torque. The engine that we speak of here is not a small one. We are referring to an insane 4000cc V8 engine here! This hybrid system is further coupled with an all-wheel drive drivetrain. We are hoping for a six speed automatic transmission on this one. The SUV will definitely blow any speed freak’s mind off high up into the air!

Now that the company’s CEO has himself stated that the vehicle will be out for production really soon, a spark has risen among buyers and lovers. Lamborghini now hopes to keep it low with the news as it plans on making the hopes and anticipations insane until the launching dates come up. We hope of seeing no more hindrances in the production of the beautiful vehicle. However, we will keep you updated!
