2022 Audi Q7 facelift bookings open, specifications and features revealed
Audi India has started accepting bookings for the 2022 Audi Q7 facelift. The second-generation of the three-row SUV was discontinued in India with the BS6 switchover but has now returned with a petrol-only line-up, refreshed looks and an updated interior. The new Q7 is being locally assembled at Skoda-VW's facility in Aurangabad and the booking amount is set at Rs 5 lakh.
2022 Audi Q7 facelift exterior
The Q7 has a more aggressive face now. The reworked headlamps are now matrix LED units and come with new detailing in line with newer Audis like the Q8, especially with the arrowlike DRLs. The octagonal grille now has six upright slats and uses darker elements, unlike the horizontal ones earlier. The front air inlets are now much larger and more angular and come with grey highlights. There are more grey elements on the bottom half of the SUV as well for added aggression. The rear gets a similar overhaul as well. It's now much flatter and gets a full-width chrome strip. These meet at the new taillamps which again have the partitioned LED elements of the new Audis. The bumper now gets a more aggressive rear diffuser too.

The biggest change on the inside of the 2022 Audi Q7 is the new twin-screen layout. These replace the lower pane of centre-console buttons with a haptic-feedback screen, while the one on top too gets this tech along with the latest 10.2-inch MMI2 interface. The dash has also been made done up in black and silver elements to go well with the screens. Other features are four-zone climate control, Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system, an air quality package, 30-colour ambient lighting and the digital instrument cluster. The Q7 facelift will be available in two variants - Premium Plus and Technology.
