2020 Audi Q7 Facelift Spotted Testing On Cold-Weather Conditions

Audi continues the development work on the facelifted 2020 Q7, which is set to adopt a more dynamic look that’s more in line with the brand’s latest models.

Our spies spotted a team of test cars during some cold-weather testing, with Audi engineers driving not only the standard Q7 but the sportiest SQ7 as well.

The exterior of the 2020 Audi Q7 will feature a redesigned front fascia with new headlights, grille and bumper, in similar style to those found in the Q8. The rear end is also set to receive a new tailgate with the characteristic for Audi LED lights and a new bumper.

The biggest change however will be found on the inside as the big Audi SUV is set to get what looks like a full dashboard swap, featuring the same layout and design with the Q8.

That means that the facelifted Q7 will finally feature Audi’s triple-display setup, featuring the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster along with a pair of touchscreen displays for the infotainment and HVAC controls in the middle.

The engine range will include Audi’s latest 48-volt tech, meaning that powertrain options fitted with it will pose as mild-hybrids while the sportier SQ7 should get an updated version of its impressive 429hp 4.0-liter V8 TDI diesel engine, which already features an electric-powered compressor for zero lag.

The thin camouflage of the test cars indicates that Audi will reveal the updated Q7 sometime in the first half of 2019 as a 2020 model, so stay tuned for more info as we have them.

    Facelift? It needs a lot more than a facelift. The design is becoming to bland. It needs to overhauled completely.

    Actually, the Q8 should have been the new Q7 design (just a bit longer). That was a missed opportunity.

    As a result, the Q7 looks outdated because of the Q8’s forward design. No facelift can fix that,
