Indian celebrities have always had a penchant for ultra-modern luxury cars, which reflect their stature in the society. Be it a speed cruiser or a luxury sedan or even a flamboyant Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), these stars like adding everything in their personal collection. A number of global car makers, such as Audi, BMW, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz and Bentley, do agree their creations are high-on-demand in the domestic market. The reason for this huge demand is the inclination of the niches of the society towards these cars, among which is a considerable number of celebrities also. One such Bollywood personality is Katrina Kaif, who shares a unique love for luxury cars. She owns an Audi Q7, the ultimate off-roading SUV from the German car makers lot.
Interestingly, the glamour lady has a deep passion for formula one racing championship and is inclined towards sports cars. The Audi Q7 owned by her however, is a proper SUV that is available in India in both petrol and diesel guise. The car is incorporated with a 3.0-litre petrol TDI quattro and a 3.0-litre TFSI quattro engine. Furthermore, a power-packed version of the car with a 4.2-litre TDI quattro mill is also available. This Audi car price falls in the bracket of Rs. 59 Lakh to Rs. 85 Lakh and the SUV is known to provide extra comfort on uneven turfs.
The diesel variant of the Audi Q7 car has a displacement of 2967 cc and is able to churn a power output of 241 bhp with a peak torque of 550 Nm. It is combined with an 8-speed automatic transmission, which transfers the power evenly to all the wheels. The petrol model, on the other hand has a displacement of 2995 cc and develops a power output of a mammoth 330 bhp at a peak torque of 440 Nm. This mill is also mated to the same 8-speed automatic gearbox, which makes the SUV an all-wheel drive, whereas, the heavy 4.2-litre diesel mill belts out an enormous power of 335 bhp with maximum torque of a whopping 800 Nm.
The car's exterior is rugged and aggressive and the entire body seems like a gigantic monster ready to take on the roads.
