Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Audi Q7 4x4?

The most obvious rival to the Q7 is the Volvo XC90. The doyen of the school run, the first-generation XC90 established itself as a bit of an SUV legend, while the second-generation version, launched in 2015, took up the baton and ran with it. Both make great used buys. For starters, they all have a classy, spacious seven-seat interior and can tackle any task from a shopping trip to motorway cruising. There's a range of relatively small petrol and diesel engines, as well as a pricey but potentially very frugal plug-in hybrid.

Another rival would be the Land Rover Discovery. Not many cars can match its blend of supreme on-road practicality and class-leading go-anywhere off-road capabilities. It’s relaxing on long motorway journeys, even when fully loaded, and yet can just as easily hare across a rutted field, with its permanent four-wheel drive ensuring good traction. Shop carefully, though, because it doesn’t have the best of reliability records.

Overview

The impressively refined Audi Q7 is beautifully built, practical and well equipped, and good value as a used buy

  • Smooth and powerful engines
  • Great ride on air suspension
  • Wonderful build quality
  • Not as sharp to drive as some rivals
  • Plug-in hybrid loses seven-seat option
  • Expensive to run
