What would you say to a quiet, powerful, seven-passenger SUV that returns highway fuel economy close to 30 mpg? Would you be as curious if we told you it was a diesel? You should. The Audi Q7 3.0 TDI is coming to all 50 states in early 2009 and we can tell you that one drive will completely reverse all the psychological damage the dirty, noisy diesel cars of the seventies and eighties might have caused you. Taking advantage of the country's cleaner new low-sulfur diesel supply, the Q7's V6 delivers 221 horsepower and a whopping 406 pound-feet of torque. It's powerful (and refined) enough to start a revolution, perhaps.
