2017 Audi Q7 Review

The Audi Q7 gets top scores for a reason: It’s the best SUV we’ve tested to date

Want a quick, elegant, cat-nimble, relatively fuel-efficient, seven-passenger SUV brimming with useful high-tech features? The redesigned 2017 Audi Q7 delivers—which is why it’s now our top-rated SUV.

A calm, tranquil cabin shields occupants from exterior ruckus without insulating the driver from a fun cruise down the road.

The 2017 Audi Q7 rides comfortably, but some underlying firmness creeps in at low speeds. You can get a $64,300 Prestige edition with an optional $4,000 air suspension system that impressively cushions that slight discomfort, if it bothers you.

HIGHS: Powertrain, quiet, handling, braking, infotainment, luxurious interior, towing capacity, standard frontal-collision avoidance

LOWS: Learning curve for controls, unintuitive shifter, rear visibility

POWERTRAIN: 333-hp, 3.0-liter V6 supercharged engine; 8-speed automatic transmission; all-wheel drive

FUEL: 20 mpg

PRICE: $68,695

As it romped through our test track’s avoidance maneuver, we found that our roomy 2017 Audi Q7 handles more like a smaller SUV. Like all Audis, the Q7 is predictable, balanced, and bracing to drive, even under pressure. The 333-hp gasoline engine provides plenty of smooth and effortless thrust. The previous Q7 offered a diesel variant, but the emissions scandal surrounding parent company Volkswagen has put its diesel plans on hold.

The Q7 continues Audi’s trend of modernist-luxury interiors. It’s a joy to run your fingers over the matte wood, brushed aluminum, and double-stitched leather. The infotainment and controls are daunting at first but over time prove to be logical.

Though it’s pricey, the 2017 Audi Q7 is a good reason to spend part of your children’s inheritance on a car.
