Today I was invited to Audi Q-Drive Event, hosted by Audi Noida and Delhi – West. Audi Q-Drive was organized to give Audi owners, perspective buyers and automobile fans a taste of Audi’s off road driving capability, in a slow yet technical track on the outskirts of Noida.
Our day began at Audi Noida, which happens to be India’s largest and only 3S Audi showroom and was also the host for the day.
After a round of mocktails, it was time to assemble for the mandatory safety briefing before the drive.
After the briefing, it was time to move to the off road track for the real action, which was set amidst farms on the outskirts of Noida. Once there, we chose to drive Audi Q7, wanting to see what this big luxury SUV could do on a technical track like this.
Here is a short video clip I shot of our off road driving stint in Audi Q7 (sorry about idiotic commentary by my buddy, he was just trolling the Audi Officials sitting in our car).
Sadly I didn’t get a chance to check the road and highway manners of the Q7, as we had to take the Q3 back to the showroom. But I did enjoy the short off road drive in the Q7, along with its lovely interiors.
At the end of the day, we got to drive Audi’s flagship SUV on off road terrain. And while I would have loved to see on road manners of Q7 and wanted the off road track to be a bit longer with couple of faster sections, it was a great event nonetheless.
