Audi was one of the brands that really popularised four-wheel drive, yet was actually something of a latecomer to the SUV party. It only joined in during 2006, when it launched the original Audi Q7.
This second-generation model sticks closely to the template established by the first car, with four-wheel drive that gives it some off-road ability, but more of an emphasis on surefooted and comfortable road driving than traversing muddy fields. It delivers a healthy dose of luxury, and is an extremely practical choice, thanks to a generously proportioned interior with seven seats.
Most buyers choose a diesel, but company car drivers may also be interested in the plug-in hybrid Q7 e-tron, while at the other end of the scale is the V8-powered SQ7 - although neither of these variants are available to order until the facelifted Q7 arrives later in 2019.
