Vehicle Details Interior  Dashboard, center console, gear shifter view photo

Continuing on in the Audi tradition, the new Q7’s well-appointed cabin boasts a more elegant look and feel highlighted by standard leather upholstery and a recast dash with an A8-style double-inlay design. Logically arrayed controls, a new 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel and highly legible instrumentation – both conventional and the upline Virtual Cockpit display – round out its more user-friendly character. Equally important, the Q7’s new platform expands interior volume and cargo space, adding more appeal to a new 35/30/35 split-tumble flat-folding 2nd-row bench and bigger, power-activated 50/50 3rd-row seat while boosting stow capacity behind the third row from 10.9 to 14.8 cubic feet.

Although exterior dimensions and wheelbase on the Gen II Q7 have decreased marginally, this all-new iteration puts a more sophisticated visual spin on the SUV formula while imparting an even sleeker character that brings an impressively low 0.32 coefficient of drag. The curbside appeal of the new Q7 is further enhanced by a new 3D-look Singleframe grille, edgier fascia treatments and bolder front/rear lighting graphics set off by 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels on the Premium/Premium Plus and 20-inchers on the Q7 Prestige with optional Audi Sport 21-inch rims on offer.

Notable Standard Equipment

Highlighting the Q7’s expanded roster of standard features are numerous primo touches including leather upholstery, tri-zone climate control, an enhanced MMI radio with retractable 7.0-inch center display, multi-mode Audi Drive Select, a 2-panel panoramic sunroof, 35/30/35 2nd-row bench seats, a power 50/50 folding rear seat, and a programmable power liftgate. Audi Pre Sense basic, Pre Sense City (with pedestrian and vehicle collision warning plus automatic brake initiation) and front/rear parking assist are also found on all Q7s. The Premium Plus version adds things like MMI Navigation and a hands-free tailgate, while the Prestige brings 3D Bose Surround Sound, head-up display, LED headlights, 4-zone air conditioning, and a 360-degree camera.

Notable Optional Equipment

As you’d expect of any luxury SUV, the Q7 also offers an impressive list of upgrades. Key extras include MMI Navigation Plus with voice control and all-in-touch handwriting recognition, smartphone integration via Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, a Rear-Seat Entertainment Package, Bose as well as Bang & Olufsen premium audio upgrades, Night Vision Assistant, a Vision Package (with full LED lighting and Audi’s fully digital instrument cluster, Virtual Cockpit), plus a Driver Assistance Package (adaptive Cruise Control and Active Lane Assist). The Q7 Prestige also can be had with a Luxury Package (Valcona leather/Alcantara trim) and the Adaptive Chassis Package that brings full air suspension and 4-wheel steering.

Under the Hood

While Audi admits a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline 4-cylinder and a 3.0-liter TDI turbodiesel are slated to put in an appearance at some future date, initially the new Q7 comes with the existing supercharged 3.0-liter gas-fired V6 that continues to make 333 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a responsive, paddle-shiftable 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission teamed with Audi’s Quattro AWD system, the engine takes this handsome and notably lighter hauler from 0-60 mph in a claimed 5.7 seconds, gives it a stellar 7,700-pound towing capability, and earns 19 mpg city/25 mpg highway fuel economy numbers from the EPA compared to the 16/22 comparative stats of the previous-generation Q7 with the same powertrain.

3.0-liter supercharged V6
333 horsepower @ 5,500-6,500 rpm
325 lb-ft of torque @ 2,900-5,300 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 19/25 mpg (8-speed automatic)

Pricing Notes

After sitting out the 2016 season, the all-new 2017 Audi Q7 returns as a significantly better – but also more expensive – SUV for 2017. The Premium now opens at just under $56,000 – about $5,000 more than its 2015 counterpart – with the Premium Plus starting slightly below $60,000 and the Prestige commencing closer to $65,500, but maxing out around $80,000 when fully loaded with extras like the Luxury Package, Bang & Olufsen sound system, rear-seat entertainment setup, and Adaptive Chassis Package. Those numbers put the entry-level 2017 Q7 in line with the 5-passenger BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class as well as the 7-passenger Volvo XC90 although they do make it significantly more expensive than the Acura MDX that also seats seven. While Kelley Blue Book has not yet finalized cost-to-own and residual value figures for the new-gen 2017 Q7, resale value expected to remain a notable plus for the vehicle.
