Tips-and-Tricks-to-Drive-Audi-Q7

Audi Q7 is a luxury full size SUV, it has the same platform with Volkswagen’s Touareg and Porsche’s Cayenne but bigger than more flexible as it can have five, six or seven seat form.

An Audi Q7 is highly recommended to families.

Below are some tips and tricks recommended to you to Drive Audi Q7 :

Suspension and wheels :

    • Audi Q7s come with 18 inch, 19 inch, 20 inch or 21 inch wheels.
    • There are a conventional steel and an adaptive air suspension with adjustable damping.
    • If you drive on potholed roads regularly, try an Audi Q7 with smaller wheels and the steel suspension, there might be more relief. 

Multi Media Interface : 

    • Audi manufacturer offers Audi’s Multi Media Interface that controls your car settings and system.

Monitor your behind via rearview camera : 

    • Use the rearview camera every time you put your vehicle into reverse. The image from the rearview camera will be projected on the display screen helping you park more easily and accurately.

Cargo area load height : 

    • Before you start driving, adjust the cargo area load height until it is comfortable for you. Lower the vehicle’s rear in case you use an Audi Q7 with the air suspension.

Second-row seats’ weight : 

    • Try folding and raising the second-row seatbacks to see if they are light enough to operate comfortably.

Panorama Sunroof (as known as panorama or moon-roof) : 

    • The Audi Q7 panorama Sunroof extends back to the third row area, gives you an expansive overhead views.

Energy saving :

    • There are two ways for you to save energy while driving. The first one is by technical methods/ techniques (for example apply some changes/add-ons to your car) and one is by changing your driving behaviour.
    • And by saving energy when driving, you can not only save money but also save the environment by emitting fewer pollutants.
    • So, if you are a driver, you can consider using these below suggestions to start saving energy, for the sake of yourself and for the sake of our environment. (This can be applied for every car, not exclusively Audi Q7.
    • To monitor how economically you are driving, use an on-board computer.
    • Idle-free: Stop idling to save fuel as well as your money and to help save the environment.

There are 4 ways:

  • Warm up the engine by driving it, avoid running the engine warm at idle.
  • Drive your car to warm it up: Warm up the cabin interior by driving, not idling.
  • Turn off your ignition if you have to wait at least 10 seconds.
  • Reduce idling to protect your engine. Reduce idling to decrease overall engine wear.
    • Keep your driving smooth and gentle:

  • The driving should always be smooth when you accelerate, hit the brake or steer.
  • Keep the speed steady: The optimum speed is usually ranges from 56km/h to 80km/h. Start and stop aggressively will increase fuel consumption.
  • In case you are required to slow down, release the accelerator as soon as possible.
    • Improve aerodynamics:

  • Reduce unnecessary weight to improve aerodynamics: Do not carry any unnecessary weight in your car, especially when commuting in city traffic. Each additional 100 pounds will consume 1 – 2% additional fuel. You can start reducing the weight by removing roof racks, unused seats, filling the gas tank partially and not fully. Remove roof racks not in use (you can reduce both weight and drag) can help you reduce fuel consumption up to 20%.
  • Consider purchasing and using some types of aero add-ons such as: rear-mounted spoilers and wings, under-body diffusers, front add-ons…
  • Minimize the amount of people (weight reduction)
  • Regularly check tire pressure to reduce rolling resistance: Get yourself a gauge to measure tire pressure.
  • Keep your tires inflated: Pump up the tires to decrease resistance, this will help decrease fuel consumption.
    • Maintain your revs (a rev is the process of increasing revolution per minute as know as rpm) and avoid high speeds in city traffic.

  • The most ideal and economical rpm is anywhere from 1500 to 2500, this varies depending on engine type and size of the vehicle.
  • Try to keep a distance with the car ahead of yours to avoid braking and accelerating quickly.
  • You can also help other road users save energy by giving them information about your intentions for example if you want to stop, or turn…remember to signal. You can help them save energy by avoiding quick and excessive braking and stopping.
    • Air Filters and Air Twister :

  • Change your Air Filters often, from six months to a year.
  • Use an Air Twister: This will allow more air into your engine to make the fuel burn more efficiently.
    • If you don’t have to use your car :

  • Turn off the engine if your car is in park.
  • Instead of driving with full lights on, only drive with standby lights.
  • Switch off the power consumers. Air conditioning consumes up to 5hp of extra power.
    • Drive less:

  • The ultimate and sure fire saving tip will be not using your car at all.
  • You can try some alternative transports such as: walking, riding a bike or taking public transportation (bus, tram, train…). Doing this will help you save a lot of money and also helps a lot in making the air more healthier, reduces pollution.
