Rebooted Audi Q7 due in 2026 with bold new look


The Q7 will no doubt continue to be offered with a choice of mild-hybrid petrol and diesel engines, with a warmed-up SQ7 variant topping the line-up with a tweaked version of Audi’s twin-turbocharged petrol V8.

Inside, the Q7 will take the lead from the new Q6 E-tron, which sets the tone for a wide-reaching revamp of Audi’s approach to cabin design. There will be a panoramic curved interface for the driver display and infotainment, together with a separate touchscreen for the front passenger and an optional augmented-reality head-up display for real-time navigation guidance projections.

The Q7 is set to relinquish its position as Audi’s biggest SUV, as a larger and more luxurious Q9 is due to arrive at around the same time to rival the BMW X7 and Mercedes-Benz GLS.

Audi hasn’t officially acknowledged the Q9’s existence, let alone confirmed plans to bring it to Europe, but the popularity of its direct rivals will no doubt have reassured product planners that there is a market for such a car.

The fact that the UK is Audi’s second biggest market in Europe (after Germany) makes it highly likely that the new luxury flagship will come here too.

Speaking recently to Carsales.com.au, Audi’s Australian boss Jeff Mannering hinted at a launch by the end of 2025, saying: “If you just look at volume versus different brands, we’re not in some segments that others are in. Let’s see what happens in the next 24 months.”
