Audi adds SUV power to Virat’s arsenal; Hands over new Audi Q7

Audi, the German luxury car manufacturer, today, welcomed the Captain of the Indian national cricket team Virat Kohli into the Audi Q family by adding another ‘quattro’ muscle into his fleet; Mr. Rahil Ansari, Head, Audi India handed over the keys of the SUV icon Audi Q7 45 TDI in Carerra White colour to the National Cricket icon Virat Kohli.

The Audi brand attributes are sporty, progressive and sophisticated and Virat Kohli embodies all these attributes perfectly. ‘Greatness starts when you don’t stop’ – it’s not only his on field performance but his entire persona that resonates with this innate spirit of the Audi Q7 and we welcome Virat to the Audi Q life. The brand with the four rings attracts achievers that are young or young at heart. We are therefore happy that Virat is our customer as well. This displays our appeal for achievers in the country,

said Mr. Rahil Ansari, Head, Audi India.

I have been a very loyal customer of Audi for some time now as the brand not only offers great products but also exudes youthful energy. I believe that I get a complete package when it comes to Audi cars and that’s exactly why I went for the Audi Q7. It is lightweight, sporty and powerful while offering me the luxury that I look forward to. I had been eyeing this since the time I was at its launch and happy that I will finally have this in my garage,

said Mr. Virat Kohli.

The powerful 45 TDI (3.0 TDI) engine churns out 249 hp (183 kW) of power and 600 Nm of torque, propelling the Audi Q7 from 0 to 100 kmph in 7.1 seconds. The Audi Q7 sets new standards in terms of efficiency with fuel consumption figures that are best in class – 14.75 kmpl. Up to 325 kgs lighter than its predecessor, the Audi Q7 Technology is available at INR 80,95,000 ex-showroom New Delhi.

The Audi Q7 encapsulates the cutting-edge technology that is at the very heart of the Audi brand. It is an efficient and sporty superlative offering. Lightweight yet extremely powerful, the class-defining SUV offers unprecedented performance with exceptional fuel efficiency. The chassis, made up of multi-material body provides excellent comfort while its eight-speed tiptronic transmission, allows drivability that is both agile and comfortable. Combined with a striking and imposing design with a great road presence and performance, the Audi Q7 is a great choice by Virat,

added Mr. Ansari.
