Audi Q7

(2015 - present)

The Audi Q7 is a large SUV/crossover, the largest in Audi’s rapidly expanding model range. The current second-generation model was launched in 2015, with a mid-life update in 2019.

The Q7 range includes the flagship high-performance SQ7 diesel model. There was previously a diesel-electric plug-in hybrid model, however this was dropped in 2019 when the range was updated.

Both the Audi Q7 and SQ7 have received very good reviews, with the SQ7 averaging very slightly higher scores in most cases. As of May 2020, the 31 reviews we have gathered on the Q7 give it an overall Expert Rating that puts one point behind the best-in-class score of the Volvo XC90.

The Audi Q7 has received particular praise for its comfort, refinement and cabin quality, which are all considered to be best in class. The main criticisms related to the stying, particularly in the facelifted models launched in 2019.
