Audi has announced the second generation Q7 is now available on order across Europe at a starting price of €60,900.

Unveiled December last year, the all-new Q7 has lost up to 325 kg (716.5 lbs) and is 37mm shorter and 15mm narrower than its predecessor. The entry-level version priced at €60,900 is equipped with a 3.0 TDI engine developing 272 HP (200 kW) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque which is enough muscle for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 6.3 seconds and a 145 mph (234 km/h) top speed. The Q7 3.0 TDI has a combined fuel consumption of 5.7 liters / 100 km (41.3 mpg US or 49.5 mpg UK) and emits 149 g/km of CO2.

A 3.0 TFSI version is also available from €62,900 with 333 HP (245 kW) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft). In this configuration, the full-size SUV from Ingolstadt will run the sprint in 6.1 seconds and hit 155 mph (250 km/h). This one will consume 7.7 liters / 100 km (30.5 mpg US or 36.6 mpg UK) with corresponding CO2 emissions of 179 g/km.

Those who are willing to spend more can add an adaptive air suspension (€2,050), matrix LED headlights (€2,580), Bang & Olufsen sound system (€6,150), park assistant (€780), MMI Navigation plus with MMI touch (€2,800), virtual cockpit (€600) and a wide variety of safety & assistance systems.

Audi has already announced a lesser 3.0 TDI version with 218 HP (160 kW) and 500 Nm (368 lb-ft) will be added to the range later on which means the starting price will dip below the €60,000 mark. Asian markets and United States will also receive a 2.0 TSI with 252 HP (185 kW) and 370 Nm (272 lb-ft). Moreover, e-tron versions with both gasoline and diesel engines will follow.
