Audi Q7

Audi Q7

Audi's flagship 4x4 is the best luxury SUV you can buy. It's relaxing to drive, comfortable to sit in and pleasantly efficient to run, while its interior is plush enough to compete with models that cost twice as much.

As if all that weren't enough, the Q7 is very practical, offering more than enough space for families and their luggage and seven seats as standard.

Our pick: 3.0 TDI S line

The luxury SUVs to avoid

Infiniti QX70

Infiniti QX70

A truly left-field choice, the QX70 certainly stands out from the crowd thanks to its dramatic looks. Unfortunately, it's very expensive to buy and run, the ride is far too firm and its interior feels cramped.


Maserati Levante

New Maserati Levante vs Porsche Macan

The Maserati Levante is spacious and well equipped, but the driving experience doesn’t live up to the badge’s promise. The diesel engine is noisy, the handling stodgy and the ride bumpy.
