Audi's current Q7 is already nine years old, which, in the automotive world, puts it well past retirement age.

It's going to soldier on for a little while longer, however, as these latest spy photos show that Audi is still putting the finishing touches on its new large SUV.

Expected to later this year or early in 2015, the new Q7 will ride on Audi's new MLB Evo platform, the SUV-specific variation of the company's universal architecture for longtitudinally-engined cars.

It's also expected to be substantially lighter than the current Q7, which weighs in at just under 2.4 tonnes.

Thanks to an extensive use of aluminium sheetmetal, thinner aluminium castings and the odd splash of carbon fibre, insiders say the new Q7 will be around 300kg lighter than the car it replaces.

That difference should add up to improved fuel economy and better performance.

The familiar range of diesel and supercharged petrol powertrains is expected to carry over with minor refinements, however a plug-in hybrid variant has been confirmed for the next-generation Q7.

So far, no word has been given on whether the plug-in will make it to Aussie shores.

Expect to get the full rundown on the 2015 Audi Q7 sometime in the coming months.
