Introduction

What Car? says...

If we asked you to name a vehicle capable of whisking up to seven people across Europe at great speed while ensconced in the lap of luxury, what comes to mind? A Learjet, perhaps? That’s the fancy option, certainly, but it’s a bit pricey. We were contemplating something a little more accessible and terra firma, like the Audi SQ7.

Now, the Q7 is a car we rate highly; so much so that, for the past few years, we named it the best luxury SUV you can buy in our 2019 What Car? Car of the Year Awards.

Audi has taken that car as the basis for its high-performance SUV offering, but plonked a whopping great 429bhp 4.0-litre V8 turbocharged diesel engine up front. There’s also an electric compressor to negate any turbo lag, powered by a 48V electrical system, which the SQ7 shares with none other than the Bentley Bentayga.

All this sounds very fancy, but does it work? Is the SQ7 a better performance SUV than rivals such as the Range Rover Sport SDV6, BMW X5 M50d or the Porsche Cayenne Turbo? Read on over the next couple of pages and we’ll let you know.

And if you’ve decided on the SQ7 or any model in Audi’s range, don't go anywhere until you've checked out the deals on our New Car Buying pages.
