by KBB.com Editors | April 24, 2009 9:52 AM
Audi's range-topping SUV benefits from a number of cosmetic and functional changes for 2010, redone front and rear fascias endow the Q7 with a bit more aggressive flair and its restyled grille with chrome vertical bars gets flanked by new HID headlights that are encircled with LED daytime running lamps. Out back, the entire lighting unit has gone LED for improved visibility. The new Q7 also boasts a bit more brightwork trim, new Teak Brown and Graphite Gray paint, two-tone exterior mirrors and restyled alloy wheels. Inside, there's new ambient lighting, more wood accents and Premium Cricket leather front seats -- as well as the latest incarnation of Audi's Multi Media Information system controller and an optional upgraded navigation package. Powertrains for the U.S. carry over unchanged and include a 3.6-liter/280-horsepower V6, a 4.2-liter/350-horsepower V8 and the 50-state 3.0-liter/225-horsepower clean turbodiesel V6 that has just been introduced to the 2009 Q7 lineup this month. All of these direct-injected engines will be backed a six-speed automatic transmission linked to Audi's quattro all-wheel-drive system. Pricing for the 2010 Q7 has not been announced but it will be in dealerships in the fall.
