Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
Even those well over six-feet tall will find the Q7 roomy in the front. Head room is very generous and the seats slide back a long way to deliver lots of leg room. It's wide inside, too, so there’s loads of elbow room.
The large door bins will each take a 1.5-litre bottle, and there are two cupholders next to the gear selector. Under the front centre armrest, you’ll find another cubby with a protective rubber tray that makes it an ideal place for stowing your mobile phone.
The Q7 is one of the very few cars on sale with six Isofix seat mounts, so it's a seriously child-friendly choice.
Seat folding and flexibility
All three second-row seats slide backwards and forwards independently and have reclining backrests. The outer two seats tumble forwards pretty easily to allow access to the third-row seats (if fitted).
If you need extra luggage space, the second-row seat backrests can be folded down in one simple operation using a lever at the base of each seat. Because they fold independently of each other, you have the flexibility to carry long loads while still carrying rear passengers.
