2011 Audi Q7 3.0T Track Test Video

Audi is offering the Q7 with a new supercharged engine matched with an eight-speed automatic in an attempt to improve fuel economy. With an EPA-estimated 16 city/22 highway mpg, the 2011 Audi Q7 3.0T definitely isn't as thirsty, but will the decrease in horsepower affect how it drives? To find out, we took it to the Edmunds test track. Acceleration was tested with 0-60 and quarter-mile tests, while braking was calculated using 60-0. Handling tests included a timed slalom and two trips around a skid pad to generate a lateral acceleration calculation.
