Loaded with enough design and safety features to satisfy the most demanding car enthusiast, the Audi Q7 was launched in the city at a glitzy event. Describing it as ‘a sporty, comfortable high-performance recreational and business vehicle’, Martin Freudenhagen, Audi India Head (After Sales) added that “the Q7 is a full-size SUV whose dynamic proportions and distinctive lines express character, while subtle modifications endow its styling with even more elegance. You can take it on a cross-country road trip or shopping with the family. It is as versatile as it is good looking,” he added.

The launch was accompanied by a fashion show that cleverly showcased design features of the Q7. Models wearing sleek black garments that looked like space age cat suits helped focus attention on the head gear that was specially designed to carry parts of the car. Jackie Shetty, kicked off the fashion sequence, wearing the Audi logo of four interlocked rings. She was followed by different models  all identically clad with different parts of the cars design incorporated into their head wear each in a unique style. Flashing tail lights, clear glass curved panels (to simulate the sun roof), revolving discs at different angles among others  kept the viewers guessing which parts of the car they represented.

As part of the evening’s programme, five of the first Audi Q7 buyers were handed the keys to their vehicles amid much ceremony. The impressive SUVs were lined up outside the lobby and guests stopped by to admire them even as the new owners stepped in and zoomed off.

“The sporty appearance, the powerful looking radiator grille and the curved headlights are especially attractive. I also like the idea of enjoying some sunshine and fresh air during long trips with optionally available sunroof. The safety features are also very impressive but our roads generally fail to match the performance of a car like this,” said Sunil Gupta, one of the car buffs at the event.
