Audi’s largest SUV has been given a complete overhaul to keep it at the forefront of luxury motoring. Lighter, more efficient and packed with more technology than ever before, it’s the ultimate off-road Audi experience.
Step up to the Q7 and the first thing you’ll notice is the sheer amount of car you get for your money. The confident styling creates a sense of power and prestige, completed with 19-inch (SE trim) or 20-inch (S line trim) alloy wheels. Alongside the larger wheels, the S line trim brings sportier-looking styling touches to make it even more imposing on the road.
Aluminium roof rails remind you that the Q7 remains a practical family car as well as a luxurious vehicle, while rear privacy glass, standard on the S line trim, adds to the sensation of majesty.
The interior of the Q7 is so comfortable that you might be tempted to just stay in it after completing your journey. It’s simply beautifully built from premium materials, including part-leather upholstery, soft-touch plastics and expensive-looking wood veneer.
Increased headroom over the previous model makes it even more comfortable for taller passengers, especially in the back. There are seven seats in total, and even with all seven seats in use the boot is a useful size at 295 litres. With the two rearmost seats folded (as most people will use the car on a day-to-day basis) it is a huge 770 litres. The middle row of seats can also be slid back and forth, increasing passenger legroom or boot space as required.
All five rear seats split and fold individually so the Q7 can be transformed into a truly cavernous load-lugger when you need to move very large objects.
Power is supplied by a quick and flexible 3.0 TDI engine with either 215bhp or 268bhp. Both are mated to a smooth-as-silk eight-speed tiptronic gearbox and Audi’s legendary quattro all-wheel drive system so you can enjoy reassuring levels of grip on even slippery roads. Automatic Start-Stop and F1-inspired energy recovery systems return around 48mpg on the combined cycle, whichever power output you opt for.
Audi drive select means you can alter the driving manners of the Q7 to suit the day, subtly changing the throttle and steering responses. Select Comfort mode to make longer drives less tiring and Dynamic mode to make the most of open country roads. Air suspension is optional and makes the ride quality even more smooth.
Set-and-forget Adaptive Cruise Control will make motorway journeys less tiring, maintaining a safe distance from the car in front by automatically applying the brakes and accelerating so you should arrive at your destination feeling more relaxed and refreshed than you’re used to. Once you get there, Audi’s Parking System Plus takes the guesswork out of parking with such a large vehicle, helping to keep the metallic paint in showroom condition.
Audi’s MMI infotainment system is fitted as standard and makes pairing phones or programming the satellite navigation system a piece of cake. A high-definition eight-point-three-inch screen magically appears from the dashboard and can be controlled with both a rotary dial and touch-sensitive pad that makes entering postcodes, for instance, easier than ever.
Your Q7 comes with Bluetooth®, two USB ports (vital for on-the-go phone charging), a 4G SIM card slot that transforms the car into a wireless hotspot, a DVD drive and 12-volt sockets in both the front and rear.
You can also specify an Audi Virtual Cockpit, which replaces the standard analogue instruments and seven-inch TFT screen with a giant 12.3-inch TFT panel that displays everything from speed and revs to satellite navigation maps, phone and audio information, plus much more.
The Q7 has received a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating and features a host of safety features, including automatic emergency braking, tyre pressure monitors, stability control and lots of airbags.
