Audi has published a walkaround video with the second generation Q7 now available across Europe.

Starting at €60,900, the revamped SUV from Ingolstadt has taken the evolutionary route as far as the design is concerned but underneath the familiar skin is a new car as weight has gone down substantially by up to 325 kg (716.5 lbs), allowing the base 3.0 TDI version to tip the scales at 1,995 kg (4,398 lbs). Xenon, LED or matrix LED headlights are available and if you go for a high-end version you also get dynamic turn signals for the taillights.

As far as the interior is concerned, important novelties include the TT-sourced virtual cockpit, latest-gen MMI with a larger touchpad, support for Google's Android Auto and Apple's CarPlay, along with a rear-seat entertainment system packing dual 10.1-inch Android-running tablets powered by an Nvidia Tegra 4 processor. On the sound department, customers can opt between a Bose system or a pricier Bang & Olufsen Advanced Audio System with 3D sound, 1,920-watt power and 23 speakers.

In terms of engines, the 2015 Audi Q7 is available with a 3.0 TDI rated at 272 PS (200 kW) and 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) and a 3.0 TFSI with 333 PS (245 kW) and 440 Nm (324.5 lb-ft). Select markets are also getting a 2.0 TFSI with 252 PS (185 kW) and 370 Nm (272.9 lb-ft) as well as a 3.0 TDI with 218 PS (160 kW) and 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft).

There are also two e-tron versions, a Euro-spec model with a 3.0 TDI and an Asian model packing a 2.0 TFSI. These two have a quattro all-wheel drive system, a 128 PS (94 kW) disc-shaped electric motor, a 17.3 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and an eight-speed tiptronic automatic transmission.
