Review

The outstanding Audi Q7 offers a relaxing blend of comfort and peaceful cruising manners, while proving surprisingly agile for such a 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.

Entry-level Sport trim gets you Matrix adaptive LED headlights, dual-zone climate control, ambient interior lighting, part-leather seats (electrically adjustable – including lumbar support – and heated in the front), 19in alloy wheels, cruise control, power-folding door mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, a powered tailgate, keyless start and plenty of infotainment gadgets, including Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, wireless phone-charging and a 10-speaker stereo.

This plug-in hybrid packs a 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine that’s helped along by a big battery and electric motor. Combined they produce 376bhp which is good for a 0-62mph time of just 5.9sec, equalling the petrol only 55 TFSIe. It isn’t in as low a company car tax bracket as the X5 45e, partially because its electric-only range is only 27 miles.
