2011 Audi Q7 spy shots - Click above for a gallery

Cellphone cameras and the internet give pretty much anyone with a sharp eye the potential to be an automotive spy photographer.

Fourtitude/Car Lounge member AutoUnion32 has posted some spy shots (originally taken by TheAudiGuy from QuattroWorld) of what looks to be Audi's refreshed Q7 wearing S-Line trim while cruising along in Atlanta traffic. The subtly-updated Q is expected in showrooms as a 2011 model. The look of the more aggressive front and rear fascias, as well as the quarry's large alloy wheels, are what lead us down the S-Line speculation path. There's talk of the 3.0-liter TFSI mill taking over base engine duties, but that'll likely occur after this refresh drops. Thanks to tipster Teg!

        Actually those are my pics, since I live in Atlanta. Check QuattroWorld.com in the Q7 forum.

      What is S-line trim? That's not like an S5 being an A5 with S-line trim right? Is it just an options package then?

      The pictures are too blurry to say anything; but hey, it's an Audi.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I wouldn't mind sporting an X6, regardless of its flaws. It still looks smokin' going down the road (unlike the Q7...).

      I'm gonna get flamed for this but the tall tires and the way the fenders are slightly flared give it a newer awkward-looking Dodge Durango look. I don't really care for it. I like the current model better.

        Subaru has taken to the high wheel arches too. I guess they all think it signals you have all wheel drive or something.

        Interesting rear hatch. I'm guessing the lighted bumper is needed for safety reasons, since a raised trunk lid will mean your running/brake/reverse lights will all be pointed skyward.

      Bring the TDI NOW!!! The Q7 is hot, update looks good. It's just too big for me, but the TDI gets some nice numbers for the shear size of this puppy.

      It looks a bit nicer than the current model; that said, I still don't like it very much (it's bloatedness makes it one of the few Audis I dislike).
        • 5 Years Ago
        I agree. I like Audis (RS6 comes to mind), but this one...not so much.
      • 5 Years Ago
      What.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Decent...looks more rich.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I think you have that backwards.
        The Cayenne has a low range and a lock on the center differential, and rear differential.
        The Q7-no low range, and only a torsen center differential.

        They do really well in deep snow or mud but they look kind of awkward on the road. The Cayenne is a better Urban SUV but this is way better off road.

      Ha. Typical Atlanta. I just got home from sitting in an hour and a half of that stuff.

      TheAudiGuy on Quattroworld took those pictures.
