KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Bob Nagy - Updated Date: 2/12/2016

Completely redesigned, the 2017 Audi Q7 has morphed into an outstanding 21st century SUV that delivers more of what today’s buyers are demanding. Sleeker and even more stylish than before, the Q7’s new aluminum-intensive architecture reduces its weight by nearly 500 pounds enhancing fuel efficiency while a new suspension improves ride and handling. Complementing its more contemporary look and feel, Audi’s largest sport utility vehicle also boasts greater interior space for passengers and cargo, plus a host new safety features. Natural rivals to SUVs like the Acura MDX, BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class and Volvo XC90, all versions of the midsize Q7 share the same 333-horsepower turbocharged gasoline V6 engine backed by an 8-speed automatic transmission and Audi’s excellent Quattro all-wheel-drive (AWD) system.

You'll Like This Car If...

If style, comfort, safety and superb road manners carry a higher priority on your must-have list than absolute scale and maximum towing capability, the new Audi Q7 – in Premium, Premium Plus or Prestige grade – could well be the new SUV of your dreams.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Buyers whose needs or desires run to having the biggest SUV on the block or one that can tow a trailer that weighs more than the Q7’s outstanding 7,700-lb maximum, would be better off considering a full-size, V8-powered alternative like the Cadillac Escalade, GMC Yukon or Infiniti QX80.

What's New for 2017

Literally recast from the ground up, the 2017 Audi Q7 is based on a new aluminum-intensive architecture that sees it lose almost 500 pounds while gaining more sophisticated styling, better fuel efficiency, greater comfort/convenience and safety features along with far superior ride and handling characteristics.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Already one of the best handling and most fun-to-drive 3-row SUVs on the market, the redesigned 2017 Audi Q7 elevates its driving game to an entirely new level. In addition to jettisoning nearly a quarter ton of mass, the Q7’s aluminum-intensive platform also lowers its center of gravity by a phenomenal 1.7 inches. Working with new, 5-link front/rear suspension setups, nicely weighted electromechanical speed-sensitive power steering and Audi’s legendary Quattro AWD, the Q7 displays class-leading agility and impressive body control that complement the quick acceleration provided by its supercharged V6 engine. Beyond standard Audi Drive Select that can fine tune the dampers, steering, throttle and transmission response on all Q7 models, the Adaptive Chassis Package available on the Prestige variant nets full air suspension and 4-wheel steering that further enhance the Q7’s dynamics qualities while slicing three feet off of the turning circle.

Favorite Features

Part of an option group on the Q7 Premium Plus, but standard on the Prestige model, this 12.3-inch fully reconfigurable high-res color digital display integrates the functions of the central multimedia interface (MMI) with the conventional instrumentation to provide the driver with a comprehensive array of vehicle, navigation and infotainment data.

Exclusive to the Q7 Premium, Adaptive Air Suspension is part of the Adaptive Chassis Package that also includes 4-wheel steering. Along with improving comfort and control, it can raise ride height 2.4 inches for better off-road ground clearance, and lower it an inch at freeways speeds to help reduce aero drag.
