About Audi Q7

The 2018 Audi Q7 is the flagship SUV from the German luxury brand, a 3-row/7-passenger hauler that deftly competes with the Infiniti QX60, Acura MDX and BMW X5. The Q7 was revamped last year, when it entered its second generation as a lighter, lither and more advanced luxury vehicle. Audi's largest crossover SUV stands out with its dynamic driving nature and sophisticated technology that touts everything from innovative safety and semi-autonomous driving features to its future-is-here Virtual Cockpit with realistic Google-maps navigation. You won't find monstrous V8 power under the hood or acres of room in the third row, but if you want a luxury SUV with brand cachet, standard all-wheel drive, sleek design and smart technology, the 2018 Audi Q7 nails the list.

"I did not really NEED this much of a vehicle, but after a test drive I really WANTED it. This SUV in the Prestige Trim is magnificently equipped and VERY comfortable, around town or on long highway stretches. From the audio system to the leather, its easy to see that this is a vehicle built to please the driver and other occupants. I generally leave it in Comfort mode, but even it this mild setting it has amazing acceleration when needed. The safety equipment works hard to correct my errors or those of other drivers. Everything works as it should, and it has only been to the dealer once for 1-year oil change. No problems with anything. Surprisingly, I am getting routinely about 10-15% better gas mileage than EPA numbers. A few suggestions: It would be helpful if the Head-Up display showed the turn signals as they are often hidden behind the steering wheel and the clicker is sometimes difficult to hear. Also, the large black upper dash could use a bit of contrasting stitching or some other method to break up the slab of black."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Have had this car for about three months and absolutely love it. Comfortable, fast, roomy, and fuel efficient. I only gave it a 9 for quality because there is one interior trim piece that is a little out of place, but otherwise this car is quality and performance like I have never seen. Having had several Mercedes, and also Subaru, Toyota and Jeep SUVs I can say this is for sure the best ride of all. Performs well in the snow as well."

Pros: "Handling, comfort, technology/cockpit"

Cons: "City gas mileage"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I have had my car for 9 months, and I really, really love it! Driving is fun, and I love all the technology! I am short and my husband is over a foot taller than I am, and we both equally feel comfortable driving- there are so many ways to get comfortable! The dealer called the front seat a cockpit and it really is! I love the convenience of the knobs and buttons, and the screen that pops up is just way cool. My kids love being able to see the radio and navigation from the backseat. Its also very responsive to my driving, which is not wimpy. I love putting the car into sport mode and getting out in front of the pack! For me, comfort, killer technology, and a quick response when I hit the gas; what more could you ask for?! The only complaint is that the city mileage is lower than I had hoped, and thats the main driving I do. The highway mileage is impressive, however!"
