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.

The plushest version of the SQ7 adds plenty of additional kit to the regular version. This includes 22in wheels, even brighter laser headlights, soft close doors, a panoramic glass sunroof, heated rear outer seats for the second row, ventilated and massaging front seats, heated steering wheel, extra leather on the dash and doors, a Bang & Olufsen stereo, head-up display, a 360deg camera, adaptive cruise control and a whole heap of safety kit. Expensive, but full of luxuries.

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.
