The 2018 Audi Q7 returns nearly unchanged for the second year of its latest generation. Audi completely redesigned its flagship crossover last year, and the Q7 immediately became one of our favorite three-row luxury SUVs. The Q7's handsome styling, upscale interior and impressive technology options are still fresh, and among the best in the class, so it's a good thing Audi hasn't changed the recipe much for this year.
Power for the Q7 comes from either a turbocharged four-cylinder (252 horsepower, 273 pound-feet of torque) or an optional supercharged six-cylinder (333 hp, 325 lb-ft of torque). Both engines are paired with a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission and Audi's Quattro all-wheel-drive system. Last year's redesign significantly reduced the Q7's weight, which helps this big SUV deliver strong performance and competitive fuel economy.
The Q7 is one of the most refined vehicles Audi makes. Its cabin is packed with high-quality materials — even the base trim comes with leather upholstery — and it's exceptionally comfortable and quiet. The Q7's ride, especially with the optional adaptive air suspension, is also excellent for the class. Aside from a smaller-than-average cargo area, there's little to complain about with this big Audi.
An extensive list of high-tech add-ons covers everything from infotainment technology to active driver aids that turn the Q7 into a semiautonomous vehicle in certain situations. Adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and a system that adjusts for local speed limits make the Q7 easy to live with in both traffic-heavy commutes and long freeway jaunts. Thanks to optional four-wheel steering, the Q7 can also tackle tight turns and cramped city driving conditions.
Three trim levels are available for the 2018 Audi Q7: base Premium, Premium Plus and the range-topping Prestige trim. Even the base trim offers quite a bit of luxury and comes with some active safety features that help make the Q7 an IIHS Top Safety Pick. Upgrading all the way to the Prestige gets buyers impressive tech including Audi's Virtual Cockpit and comforts such as heated and ventilated seats. A laundry list of options means you can customize the Q7 to your needs and wants.
It's easy to recommend the Q7 to anyone looking for a luxurious three-row SUV with the latest technology. Make sure to check out our full review for more information, and take advantage of our shopping tools to find a great deal on a 2018 Audi Q7 near you.
