Audi has given its biggest SUV – the Q7 – a mid-life makeover.

The styling upgrades include some new headlights, taillights and a new chrome strip connecting the rear lights.

The changes underneath the body are more significant. A new active roll stabilisation system is available as an option, while the adaptive air suspension remains. Quattro all-wheel drive is a given, but you will be able to specify the Q7 with all-wheel steering. This system can turn the rear wheels by five degrees, which should make it easier to manoeuvre the Q7 in parking lots.

The 3.0-litre diesel and 3.0-litre petrol V6 engines are carried over, but a plug-in hybrid model will join the model range. All models come as standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The interior has been updated and now features the same dual-screen layout as found on the Q8.

Audi’s virtual cockpit is standard across all models.

You can expect the facelifted Q7 in South Africa early in 2020.
