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.

get the best price

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: 55 TFSI Quattro

The only petrol engine is this 3.0-litre V6. It’s gutsy enough from low revs, so you don’t need to work it hard like you do some petrol engines. Fuel economy, particularly in real world driving, isn’t great, though.
