Self Study Program 635 – Audi Q7 (type 4M) Driver assistance systems

VAG SSP 635. Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Audi Board Member for Technical Development said: “The new Audi Q7 is a statement of our competence:

Weighing 325 kilogrammes less, it sets the benchmark in its class. It is around 26 % more efficient and is equipped with the latest assistance systems, infotainment modules and connect features.”

With a kerb weight of just 1,995 kilogrammes (as 3.0 TDI), the new Audi Q7 is the lightest in its class. It weighs 325 kilogrammes less than the previous model. With its lightweight, multimaterial body and an all-new chassis, it is comfortable while at the same time offering the typical performance of a sporty Audi – and that with top-notch 2 values. Audi engineers have reduced the fuel consumption of the Q7 by as much as 28 % (TFSI) and 23 % (TDI).

The engines set the standard in the segment of large SUVs with all-wheel drive. The 3.0 TDI developing 200 kW (272 hp) and the 3.0 TFSI developing 245 kW (333 hp) accelerate the new Audi Q7 from 0 to 100 kph in 6.1 seconds (TFSI) and 6.3 seconds (TDI), respectively.

The diesel V6 consumes on average just 5.7 l of fuel per 100 kilometers, corresponding to 149 g of CO2 per km.

The Audi Q7 also sets standards with respect to the operating concept, infotainment, connectivity and driver assistance systems. The second-generation modular infotainment platform is on board, as is the Audi virtual cockpit. The new MMI all‑in‑touch control unit with large touchpad makes operation child’s play. Other attractive innovations include the expanded services from Audi connect, the Audi tablet for the rear seat passengers and the two sound systems with 3D audio. Smartphone integration with Google Android Auto and Apple Carplay is also new. The new Audi Q7 is one of the first cars world-wide to offer these functions.

With its range of driver assistance systems, the new Audi Q7 sets standards that go far beyond the standards in its segment. Some systems have been completely redeveloped from scratch.

Standard are the rear parking aid, cruise control, adjustable speed limiter, rest recommendation and the safety system Audi pre sense city. It warns the driver of impending collisions with other vehicles or pedestrians and will initiate heavy braking in an emergency.
