Typically, those of us with long commutes can't wait to get out of the car at the end of the day. Not so with the redesigned 2017 Audi Q7. This luxury three-row SUV has proven so capable, slick and pampering, that it is now our top-rated model among all luxury SUVs. Overall, the Q7 outperforms all of its direct competitors, namely the Acura MDX, BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE, and Volvo XC90.

"Seats are very comfortable - We can drive all day without any discomfort or shifting around to find "the sweet spot". No other issues except (below) - love this car Cons: who was the xxxxx that changed the shift pattern so reverse is where Park used to be - After 2 years I will never get used to the "electronic" sifter. As for keys, if the battery goes dead in your electronic key, you are SOL - really bad idea because you cannot drive this car. I keep an extra battery in the glove compartment. Audi doesn't tell you this. Lastly, my biggest complaint - run flat tires. They are a total scam. There is NO advantage here except "follow the money" which is a big disadvantage to my check book. Yes, if you get a nail hole in a tire you can drive the car to a service station. (Audi or Goodyear doesn't tell you, you have to buy a new tire for 400 bucks because run flats can't be repaired beyond getting you home or to the service station). If you have a sidewall failure you are in the same boat as anyone with conventional tires except you don't have a spare. How does this possibly make any sense unless you have more money than brains and a lot of time to kill, and you are so dysfunctional that you can't change a spare tire. These tires wear out at 20000mi with no warranty and cost a third more than, say, Continentals with a 40000 mi wear warranty: And the ride is horrible. These tires need really stiff sidewalls to drive flat, (that does make sense. And combined with an aspect ratio of 245 you feel every pebble on the road. I'm getting conventional tires - Continentals with a Slime sealing kit that you recommended, and if I ever have to use it I'll let you know how it worked. No other cons: it's a great car and Audi is really close to getting it right. Just a note - My wife and I drove to buffalo from the shoreline of Connecticut a month ago with a few stops and got 29.8 MPG for the 400+ mi trip. Pretty impressive for a heavy car. Noise - pretty quiet although the run flats are noisy. Ride is firm, the run flats make it extra firm. I guess by now you know that I hate these tires and I will never buy a Goodyear tire again Audi - Ditch the run flats and just include a flat tire kit like the other smart car manufacturers are doing (BMW). And in case you decide to include a spare I know how to change it."

"Highly reliable."

Fred H., LA (2017 Audi Q7)

"Car has many wonderful features and well-thought out too. However, the packaging runs the price up quickly - so I think it could be priced better. But the single WORST feature is that it lacks a SPARE TIRE. For a car in this price point I want a damn spare tire. Not even a donut spare. Nothing. And to some extent I blame CR - advocacy of CAFE - we need to have options to buy a spare!"

Paul S., NJ (2017 Audi Q7)

"See my answer to the ride/comfort question."

Gregg H., CA (2017 Audi Q7)

"Lack of spare tire. Minimal cabin storage space. Lack of sunglasses storage."

What Owners Say

"The drivers assistance is unbelievable. The comfort and the quality of the ride and acceleration far surpass Mercedes and other luxury SUVs. The details and cockpit display allows you to drive without taking your eyes off the road as well as the voice activation system. The lane departure system and cameras providing complete visibility keep the passengers safe. Can't say enough about this vehicle."

"Great inside, so so outside."

"We didn't realize that the exterior body looks like a bloated Audi Allroad. It's just plain Jane."
