How Well Does the Audi Q7 Perform?

The Audi Q7 joins the race among elite brands as they outsize and outrun each other with their big, bad SUVs. Compared to Range Rover, the Q7 already makes quite a statement with its massive size. But beyond offering a size that catches up with the rest of the SUVs, the Q7 also packs quite a punch with its performance, comfort, equipment, and safety features.

Pros

The Audi Q7's 2.5-tonne, 5 metre long size makes it a force to contend with on the road. Off the road, on dirt paths and mountain trails, such a size is preferred.

Driving with speed is not a disappointment when it comes to the Audi Q7. The 3.0-litre V6s can deliver at either 329bhp or 268bhp. You can also opt for the 242 bhp that filters the NOx emissions, letting you enjoy clean and safe fuel usage. If you still need more speed, a special order gives you a 6.0-litre V12 that delivers 493 bhp.

The Audi Q7 is quite a masterpiece when it comes the interior. You can only expect first rate with its material, trim, and switchgear. Most of its makeup has been drived from the A6 and A8—a pleasant transition for Audi fans. The dials and centre console borrow elements from the A6, and even include a gorgeous multi-media interface (MMI) that is also seen in the A8 and the A6. All these features are ergonomically sound for adults.

Don’t forget to enjoy the Audi Q7 S line model’s electrically controlled and adjustable leather front seats.  With its three-metre wheelbase, there’s more than enough space around the front and centre seat rows.

In terms of safety, the Q7 has received a four star rating from the Euro NCAP. Front, head, and side airbags are installed for front occupants, along with side airbags placed into the second row and another head airbag system for the succeeding three rows. Another handy additional safety feature is the standard electronic stability control, which is activated when the Q7 feels it could topple over. The vehicle is stabilized via the rollover stabilization program. The Audi Q7 also offers an eight-speed automatic gearbox that replaced the six-speed auto released in 2010. Its standard equipment includes rear parking sensors, an alarm, plus an electronic differential lock to provide traction for slipper surfaces. A standard Q7 includes a full-time four wheel drive, five settings in the adaptive air suspension, and 18-inch alloy wheels. You can also enjoy front fog lights, automatic headlights and wipers, electrically heated and adjust door mirrors, rear LED lights, and roof rails.

Cons

The vehicle's bulk extends into its 2170 mm wide measurement and can make parking difficult in public or standard sized spaces. Despite its incredible size, however, the Q7 still provides enough visibility while driving. But you may have to get used to the view when going through tinier roads, gaps, or non-large parking spaces. You can compensate for this setback by getting parking radar or a blind-sport monitor. Shifting direction becomes seamless despite the bulk of this car, letting you control each movement with ease. The downside is this agility doesn’t perform as well on the road.

Unfortunately the rear chairs don’t offer as much space; don’t expect to seat seven adults in this vehicle. The rear seats also occupy so much space that very little space is left for the boot floor. If the rear and centre seat rows are folded, however, about 2035 litres of space is created for the boot. But you will have a hard time handling the bulkier items in this area, so you'll have to choose between compromising boot space or rear space. It will really depend on how often these areas will be used.

Getting to know the Audi Q7: Some basics

Classified as a full-size crossover SUV, the Audi Q7 was announced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2005. Production in Bratislava, Slovakia began later in the year, with the first units going on sale in 2006. The Q7 is the first SUV unit from Audi AG, designed to take advantage of a modified version of the PL71 Platform from the Volkswagen Group. It is also more designed as an on-road type of vehicle and is not meant to be used as a serious off-road model where transfer cases are needed. While the Q7 does not have a low-range transfer case, it does come with a Quattro permanent four-wheel drive system with adjustable air suspension and a central differential lock to help with off-road use. All Q7 models also come with automatic transmission. No manual transmission models are offered.

As for features, the Audi Q7 is marketed to include the Audi Music Interface that allows users to use iPods or similarly styled MP3 players with the vehicle’s main sound system. The Q7 is also the first model from Audi to include Side Assist, a detection and warning system for blind spots, alongside the SIRIUS traffic system for US models. Vehicles most comparable to the Q7 include the Volkswagen Touareg and the Porsche Cayenne.
