The Audi Q7 returns to Australia in September, in an all-new second generation version, with new technology and driver assistance systems.

The Q7ís optional assistance package includes Active Lane Assist, which gently steers itself to guide the car in its own lane above 60km/h as a support to the driver.

Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop&Go function and pre-sense front, as well as Traffic Jam assist, ease the driverís task in freeway driving or in traffic, by autonomously accelerating, braking and steering the car under certain conditions.

The Collision Avoidance Assist system supports the driver if an obstacle has to be avoided. Using the video camera and radar sensor data, it instantaneously calculates a suitable track, taking into account distance, width and offset of the preceding vehicle. Its first action is a warning jolt to alert the driver about the danger. Once the driver begins steering, the system intervenes in the power steering with torque in order to guide the vehicle around the obstacle.

The Turn Assist system monitors oncoming traffic when turning right at low speeds. In a dangerous situation, it slows the Q7 to a halt. This intervention keeps the Audi Q7 within its own lane. The system is enabled at speeds of between two and 10km/h once the driver operates the turn signal to turn right.

Audi Pre-sense City (AEB), Side Assist and Rear Cross Traffic assist (which assists by alerting the driver of oncoming traffic when reversing out of a driveway onto a road, for example) are all standard on the new Audi Q7. The Exit Assist warning system warns the driver and passengers, should vehicles or bicycles approach from behind when the vehicles is stopped.

The new MMI all-in-touch control unit incorporates haptic feedback to enhance user interaction with the menu system, making operation even more intuitive. The virtual cockpit (plus retractable 8.3-inch centre screen) is standard, and Audi Connect functionality is available as an option.

Also available for the new Q7 are Audiís intelligent Matrix LED headlights, with dynamic rear indicators.

The new Audi Q7 is powered by a updated 3.0 TDI V6 engine that produces 200kW and 600Nm. This can accelerate the new Q7 from 0 to 100km/h in 6.5 seconds.

An all-new drivetrain comes with the new Q7. A new quattro centre differential is integrated into the eight-speed tiptronic. Vibration dampening solutions allow very low engine idle speeds of as little as 850rpm for maximum efficiency. The start-stop system cuts the engine even before the car comes to a complete stop, when the required braking parameters are met.

The new Q7 is also available with all-wheel steering, which turns the rear wheels below 10km/h in order to reduce the turning circle for improved manoeuvrability. At high speeds, the same rear-wheel steering function is applied differently to increase cornering stability.

The first new Audi Q7s will be delivered to Australian customers in September.
