A Facelift for the Ages

A Facelift for the Ages

While not an entirely new model, the 2025 Audi Q7 introduces a substantial facelift, breathing new life into a model that first hit the roads in 2015. The front clip receives a fresh look with a redesigned Singleframe grille, maintaining its substantial size with an octagon-themed pattern within the thick surround. The lower fascia boasts revamped corner vents with a vertical orientation, complementing the largely unchanged LED headlights. However, the optional HD Matrix lights now come with laser technology, a first for the Q7, offering expanded vision with improved high beam range. One of the standout features of the new Q7 is its optional customizable laser headlights. Audi takes innovation to the next level with a laser diode for each light, activated with high beams at speeds exceeding 43 mph. This system collaborates with 24 LEDs to significantly enhance the high beam range, providing not only improved visibility but also a unique and personalized driving experience. Drivers can choose from four lighting signatures for the daytime running lights, allowing for a touch of individuality on the road.

Interior and Exterior Enhancements

Inside, the base model now comes with standard contrast stitching, 19-inch wheels, an aluminum roof rails gloss package, and a rearview camera with parking assist plus. Opting for additional features unlocks a range of nine decorative inlays to personalize the greenhouse. The exterior palette expands with three new colors: Ascari Blue, Sakhir Gold, and Chili Red. New wheel options, ranging from 20 to 22 inches, add a touch of flair to the Q7's exterior.

In the tech realm, the 2025 Audi Q7 introduces third-party apps for the first time, allowing seamless integration of services like Spotify directly into the infotainment system. The driver-assist features have been upgraded, providing various warning displays for the virtual cockpit, including lane-change warnings and distance alerts, among others. These advancements enhance both convenience and safety, making the driving experience more enjoyable.

Powertrain Options

Powertrain Options

The powertrain lineup for European buyers remains consistent, offering a choice between a 3.0-liter diesel in two tunes (228 or 282 horsepower), a gas-burning V6 with 335 hp, and a performance-focused SQ7 trim with a 500-hp twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8. The SQ7 boasts additional enhancements, such as black trim, oval exhaust tips, and a chin spoiler, propelling it from 0 to 100 kmh in a mere 4.1 seconds.

The 2025 Audi Q7 brings a refreshing update to the well-established luxury SUV, combining a bold facelift, customizable laser headlights, and advanced tech features. As it begins its journey in the European market, the anticipation builds for its imminent arrival in North America, promising a driving experience that marries style, innovation, and performance.

The BMW Skytop Concept: A Fusion of Classic Inspiration and Modern Design

The BMW Skytop Concept: A Fusion of Classic Inspiration and Modern Design

BMW has once again captivated the automotive world with its latest reveal at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. This year, the German automaker unveiled the Skytop Concept, a stunning two-seater coupe that blends contemporary performance with nostalgic design cues. Despite BMW's assertions that the Skytop draws heavily from past icons like the Z8 and the 503, many see it as a reimagined 8 Series with a targa top.

Adrian van Hooydonk, head of BMW Group Design, describes the Skytop Concept as "a truly unique and exotic design, in the tradition of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este." He emphasizes that it combines "driving dynamics and elegance at the highest level," akin to its historic predecessors. The parallels to the Z8 roadster are undeniable; the Skytop features thin taillights and a distinctive sharknose front end reminiscent of the early 2000s Z8. Furthermore, the sculpted hood, compact headlights, and unique flat-decked rear are clear nods to the 1950s BMW 503.
