Spotlight: Audi Q7 3.0 TDI

"Spotlight" is the section at Guitigefilmpjes aimed at making a short "pro-con" review combined with pictures and videos of cars that have been on the market for several years. Because the pictures and videos have been made several years ago, the quality may not be up to the modern standards. Still, Guitigefilmpjes would like to look back on these cars and share this with you.

During the 2005 IAA motor show in Frankfurt, Audi introduced its first SUV into the model range, the Audi Q7. The Audi Q7 was launched in order to compete with its main adversaries, the BMW X5 and Mercedes Benz ML. Based on the "Plattform E", the Audi Q7 shares this platform with the Volkswagen Touareg and Porsche Cayenne, while production of the Q7 takes place in Bratislava, Slovakia.
