Audi Q7 2.0 TFSI variant launched in Malaysia

Audi has just launched another Q7 variant in Malaysia called the 2.0 TFSI Quattro and it will be priced at RM 524,900 (Rs 84.21 lakh).

This fully-imported 2.0 TFSI will join its stablemate, 3.0 TFSI Quattro, that was introduced last November and is externally distinguishable by the 19-inch five V-spoke alloy wheels compared to the 20-inch 10-spoke alloys seen on the 3.0-llitre variant.

Powering the new variant is a 252bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol motor that spins out 370Nm and uses an eight-speed tiptronic gearbox. Audi claims the sprint to 100kmph from standstill takes 7.1sec before going on to clock a top speed of 233kmph.

Unlike the 3.0 TSI variant, the 2.0 TFSI drops the Audi Virtual Cockpit feature and comes with a four-spoke steering wheel without electric steering adjustment (three-spoke sports unit on the 3.0 TFSI). Other than this, all the features that’s on the top-end variant are on this version and some of them include the adaptive air suspension, heated and anti-glare door mirrors, powered boot lid and park assist with surround view camera.

Audi only has diesel versions on the Q7 portfolio for India at the moment, and could complement the range by adding a petrol version thanks to the present market trend for petrol cars.
