New Lexus RX L & Volkswagen Touareg vs Audi Q7

1. Audi Q7

The Q7 is a luxury SUV that goes head to head with the BMW X5 and Volvo XC90. And, like those rivals, it has four-wheel drive to gain some off-road ability, but it’s geared towards sure-footed on-road use rather than traversing muddy fields. It’s also an extremely practical car, thanks to a generously proportioned interior and huge boot. But what really sets the Q7 apart is its stunning interior, sensational refinement and pillowy ride.

Our pick: 3.0 TDI quattro S line
