Sport, meet utility

  • The 2020 Audi SQ7 features a 4.0 TFSI® V8 engine, capable of generating up to 500 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque.
  • The twin-turbocharged midsize SUV routes power via an eight-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission, sending power to all four wheels via Audi’s quattro® all-wheel drive.
  • S-tuned adaptive air suspension electronically controls the vehicle’s adaptive dampers, automatically regulating vehicle dynamics and enhancing ride quality.

Using the vehicle’s 48V electrical system, Active roll stabilization controls body roll during cornering. This enhances handling and agility of the SQ7, inspiring confidence in spirited driving. The quattro® sport differential offers an enhanced cornering agility by actively splitting torque between each of the rear wheels, with the ability to direct nearly all torque to one wheel.

  • The SQ7 also features standard power 50/50 split-folding third-row seats with electric fold and return functions.
  • The 2020 SQ7 offers five LATCH child seat mounting points (three pairs of anchors and tethers in second row, two pairs in third row).
  • With the available towing package, the SQ7 is capable of towing a maximum 7,700 lbs.
