Best of All Worlds

This is our first Audi. Coming off Mercedes and BMW’s before. My wife needed some extra seats for shared school duty this year. I almost bought a BMW X7 but could not get over it being a brand new platform getting bad reliability marks. Also, it was just a little too big for daily run-around. Next was an upgrade to her Mercedes to a new GLE. Needed the AMG Exterior (such a better look than chrome trim), the V6/450 variant and 3rd row option. Challenging to find inventory and ultimately driving up price over the competition. MB ride is also just so soft. We looked at Volvo, trying for something different this time. Unimpressed with manual cabin functions, seats were too firm, no USB ports and wasn’t impressed with T6 4-cylinder engine. We did not dig for a T8 - which I’m sure would have been a fun drive - because of the other drawbacks. Not sure why it took so long for me to review Audi but by the time I did it was literally like a ‘greatest hits’ of everything I’d seen in the market. Thrilling drive (especially in Dynamic), really comfortable seats, perfect ride (highly recommend air suspension), safety & tech is all there (items excluded weren’t important for us like auto-parking), MMi touchscreen is simply the best in industry (no touch pad, wheels, gesture - all touch screen, customizable and intuitive beyond all expectations). We love the looks. Driver position is perfect blend between car and SUV feel (I guess ‘wagon’ comes to mind). Dealer and discount/pricing was great. Fit and finish is tight/Germanic. We will have to see on reliability but I feel very confident in this long-running platform. So happy I held out, continued the search and found a winner.

I have had several X5 and MDXs over the past many years and by far this is the best SUV I have ever had. It is a good size vehicle with outstanding fit & finish inside and out. The Interior is well laid out, comfortable and roomy. I elected to go with the Prestige version and I am totally pleased with the safety features, handling and Infotainment System. The Infotainment interface is intuitive and very straight forward - I loaded two full profiles in less than 2 hours (Corvis-19 restrictions prevented a human check out on the system) without any instruction. Handling, ride and acceleration with the V6 is very good. The 3rd row seating is tight as is all the SUVs in this size but usable for short trips for adults and fine for children. Only suggested improvement I have found is it would be nice to have more storage space. This is an excellent SUV - I highly recommend this car.

Sporty 3 row SUV; Just one flaw...

A beautiful, luxurious 3 row SUV that’s fun to drive? Sign me up! The Q7 has plenty of room for our family of 5 and flexible seating. I was worried I was missing out on other brands (XC90) that had captains chairs, but turns out folding the middle seat down works just as well for my kids to access to 3rd row even when two child seats installed in 2nd row. I found the Q7 to be the perfect size 3 row SUV - not too bulky like a GLS. It moves fast (get the 55) and drives rather sporty for an SUV. The interior is absolutely stunning - leather, wood, and lighting. The tech is awesome. Despite a lot of features, I found them intuitive to use. It has the best touch screen I’ve used with haptic feedback that feels closer to buttons. You can customize a lot of the tech too - including what is displayed in each screen and the design of the instrument cluster. Its nice to have Car Play google maps on the big screen, and then control music on the instrument cluster screen. The driver assistance works well and is not annoying like in other cars I’ve driven. THE FLAW? Small item storage is lacking. Actually, I had more compartments in the 2013 A4 Allroad I traded in. Some stubborn German Designer did not want to mess up his beautiful interior design with trays and compartments. The center console is shallow and can only fit a phone, wallet, and sunglasses. There are not any storage trays. The door pockets are a decent size, but awkward shaped. There is a hidden compartment to the left of the steering wheel, but it is also awkward. The glove box is small too. I had to buy roll-up organizers to optimize the space. Very disappointing as I know Mercedes does a good job with that aspect of their designs - so at least one German brand can get it right for the US market. That is the only reason I can’t give the Q7 5 stars. I still love to drive it though.

Exactly what I expected. Still shy on storage as was the last model. Exterior rework is really nice especially the grill. Interior fit and finish are as expected. Info system needs some practice but all in, really nice. 6 months in even more pleased with the performance. No issues, no squeaks or creeks. Excellent vehicle

The driver door rattles. I have taken the car five times to get fixed, two different dealers. The money spend in the car should not rattle. I like the car otherwise.
