The Audi Q9 is expected to be unveiled in late 2021 or early 2022 with a price tag similar to that of its seven-seat rivals BMW X7 and Mercedes-Benz GLS, which start at $ 136,000 and $ 150,000, respectively.
Externally, the Audi Q9 looks much more traditional and almost “Americanized” compared to the avant-garde aesthetics of the Audi Q8 coupe. New renders of the Audi Q9, based on recent spy shots, showcase narrow headlights and a massive single-bezel grille at the front, flared wheel arches on each side and Audi’s signature high-tech LED lighting at the rear, including a full-width light strip.

Based on the same architecture of the MLB evo platform that underlies the Audi Q8 and other high-end SUVs from Volkswagen Group brands including Bentley and Lamborghini, the Audi Q9 will offer a range of chassis features designed to maintain body shape and distribute engine torque there. where you need it most.
The 2022 Audi Q9 is expected to be the brand’s largest vehicle to date, but will almost certainly be offered with a range of powerful turbo-petrol, diesel and hybrid engines, including a powerful plug-in hybrid (PHEV) capable of up to 50 km exclusively on electric traction. There is also a strong possibility that Audi Sport will create an Audi RS Q9, which is likely to be powered by the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 petrol engine found in the Lamborghini Urus and Audi RS Q8.
