For 2020 the Q7 adopts the new crossover version of the Audi's single frame grille, which has eight points instead of six. The bumpers have more aggressive vents, and the headlamp shape and graphics are all new. HD Matrix LED laser light headlamps are available for the first time.

Possibly the biggest change is the adoption of the Q8 dashboard. Gone is the classic Audi design, and in comes the modern take with two touchscreens (one for the infotainment, one for the climate control system).
