Review

The outstanding Audi Q7 offers a relaxing blend of comfort and peaceful cruising manners, while proving surprisingly agile for such a big and spacious seven-seat luxury SUV. Go for the 50 TDI in S Line trim, or the 55 TFSI if you really don’t want a diesel.

Trim: Black Edition

Black Edition adds four-zone climate control (allowing rear-seat passengers to dial in a different temperature to those in the front) and polished-oak trims to everything you get with S line trim. You also get lowered suspension and bigger 21in alloys wheels, which don’t deliver quite such a supple ride.

Engine: 50 TDI Quattro

This is our pick of the engine range for most buyers. With 282bhp and 0-62mph dealt with in 6.5sec, this 3.0-litre V6 diesel is punchy, refined and relatively efficient, although the dim-witted automatic gearbox lets the side down a bit.
