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.

"Went to the dealership and try finalize the deal weve made the other night. This time I brought the wife whod be driving this particular SUV. Shes been driving the volvo XC90 which is over 10 years old. So at least she can distinguish her likes and dislikes: She likes the value, driving dynamics, comfort/convenience, design and quality. Most of the things that these other reviewers here, all you tube reviewers and KBB Exert reviers are true and music to her ears. But there things that important to her that closed her fists. Third row air vents - If you have 4 passengers and a driver then its hard for the air to get to the 3rd row. In this case she has her dog always wanted to ride with mama. Texas heat would be just to hot if she has to wait for the air to circulate to the trunk or 3rd row. No spare tire - Run flat tire is a nightmare most of the time. MSRP of this car doesnt even makes sense not to have one. Not enough selections for the type and size of these tires. Not even mentioning the cost each tire. 300-400 per Audi connect prime plus - This should be at least 24 months to 48 months free subscription instead of 6 months. Adaptive cruise control - Should be replaced with semi-autonomous. Heads Up Display - should have the choice to Turn Off/ON and includes turn signal. Center Console - Storage is very small and not so deep where the apple car play or android auto USB plugs are located. Think the USB plug thats located at the front of the console might serve the same purpose. not sure Android mini USB that comes with it is not compatible with Galaxy note 7 or 8. Cup Holders - Just Tiny for our needs. 2nd row center middle seat - Not friendly for adult passenger because the floor is not flat. Why takes up so much height in the center floor? 3rd row seats - just a sales gimmick. Youd break either your knees, ankles, or back sitting there for a long drive. 1 year periodic maint- should increase to 4 years like the other brand."

"We have had our black Q7 Prestige, will all the options except night vision, for over 13 months now and have had it serviced at 10,000 and 20,000 miles. Extremely smooth ride with the air suspension. The massaging seats (driver and passenger) keep you from getting too stiff on the long rides and just feel great on the short rides. The car has a lot of technology that works together great, including a fabulous sound system. While we love the vehicle and plan to drive it at least 120,000 miles before considering a replacement, there are some things they could certainly improve including; 1. Add audible to the flashing light alert when someone is in your blind spot and you turn the signal on (my wifes Kia does, so surely Audi can). 2. Allow the owner to lock and unlock the vehicle with paying (200 per 6 months - It is a free feature for Kia). 3. Have an audible alarm when the back hatch is not closed. We have had several thing fall out due to no alarm and it did not finish closing. 4. The speed limit sign recognition is almost 100% for all signs except those listing 75 mph where it is only 50% correct (weird defect). 5. Have the massaging seats last longer than 12 minutes (should go at least 20). 6. Put a spare in or under this 80,000 vehicle. This is a tremendous vehicle and my favorite of all time, but if they addressed these issues, it would be even better in my opinion. Once you test drive one with all the options, you will find that you do not need all that, but you will really, really want it. I drove one without all the options and it was night and day difference between the two."

"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."
