Despite being taller, wider and heavier than any other Audi vehicle, the 2015 Audi Q7 still feels similar to one of the company's famously sporty sedans. Credit things like the...
... quattro all-wheel-drive system, which retains a bias toward rear-wheel drive to give the Q7 a more performance-minded feel. Still, even Audi's cleverest engineers can't completely mask the Q7's bulk and weight. This is no nimble Q5, although the Q7 boasts responsive steering and an inspiringly solid chassis. The Audi Q7 delivers the kind of driver feedback that's so lacking in competitors like the
Cadillac Escalade and
Lincoln Navigator. Audi's adaptive air suspension is a worthwhile option for those seeking a smoother ride or towing heavy loads. Neither the gasoline nor diesel engines are short on power, providing remarkable thrust yet also much better fuel economy than you'd expect for a 7-passenger luxury SUV weighing more than 5,000 pounds.
