Audi Q7

2019
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
Audi's luxury three-row SUV is an impressive vehicle, and among the best we've ever tested. It employs a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 that is mated to a very smooth eight-speed automatic. This results in effortless acceleration and fuel economy of 20 mpg overall in our tests. The Q7 is very quiet, instilling a sense of tranquility. The ride has an underlying firmness unless buyers splurge on the Prestige trim and the optional air suspension, which makes it as plush as a luxury car. Handling is responsive and confidence-inspiring. The beautifully finished interior exudes luxury, with excellent seats and a vivid, high-tech digital instrument cluster. The controls prove logical with familiarity. Available advanced safety systems include automatic emergency braking and lane keeping assist. The new Q8 is a five-passenger, coupe-like version based on the Q7.

Audi Q7 2016
Audi's midsized luxury SUV shares components with the Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Touareg, and offers a tight but serviceable third-row seat. The strong 350-hp, 4.2-liter V8 pulls smoothly, but returns just 15 mpg overall on premium fuel. A V6 is also available. Handling is fairly nimble, but doesn't shine at its limits. The ride is steady, though a little stiff at low speeds. Front-seat comfort is very good, interior fit and finish are excellent, and the cabin is quiet, but the MMI driver-interaction system is complex. A turbodiesel V6 was added in 2009, while both the V6 and V8 gas engines were replaced by a supercharged V6 in 2011.
