2010 Audi Q7 - Click above for a high-res image gallery

So far, the Shanghai Motor Show has played host to the wild and mild. On the latter, Audi unveiled the 2010 Q7 to the assembled throngs in China, complete with a new nose, restyled rear and a few choice bits under the hood and inside the cabin.

The crown jewels on the Q7's refreshed fascia are a new set of LEDs that run from the top, around the side and then through the bottom of the headlamp housing. A reworked lower grille and fog-lamp mounts accompany a new hatch and more LEDs nestled within the taillights, while inside, there's more wood, some tweaked trim and a third-generation MMI infotainment system that (Audi-willing) will remain as intuitive as the current system. As for powertrains, the V6 and V8s currently available in the U.S. will carry over, but a new 3.0-liter TDI is coming, rated at 25 mpg and carrying a range of 600 miles when traveling on the express way. Check out our previous post for all the details.

      I'm one who actually likes the pointless ostentatious, vulgar daytime LED lights, but that is just overkill.

        Your name is Quattroporte, and your picture is an MC12... good taste, i don't think i could agree with you more! Audi does rather love its LEDs....

      the daytime LEDs look similar to the daytime LEDs in the new Q5.
      the LEDS at the air intakes on the front bumper are just indicator LEDs, not daytime LEDs. so no too much imho.

      daytime running LEDs/lights become mandatory soon for all new vehicles in europe by the way. that is why Audi already uses them in their vehicles. all the others will follow soon.

      Ugly, I'm a huge Audi fan but the Q7 was always a ill conceived product - a huge obnoxious gas guzzler.
      Not a car with true engineering prowess. More of a marketing dept release than a engineers one...

      In this recession it's faults have been exposed, and sales are collapsing.

      The facelift says it all really, the ridiculous amount of LED's just convey the totally wrong message...
