Car and Driver Names Audi Q7 a “10Best” Luxury SUV For the Second Year Running


A post shared by Audi (@audi) on

As we mentioned in our previous post, awards aren’t what sell cars. Experience behind the wheel does. But for two consecutive years now, when Car and Driver got together to compile their 10Best list, their time with the Audi Q7 was what made the cut. That’s because among three-row luxury SUVs, the Q7 is ubiquitous with fun, function, and premium innovations that one looks for in such a model. Ask anyone who’s driven one, and they may echo a similar sentiment.

To compile their annual listing, Car and Driver weighs overall value, performance, and engineering prowess in each model that’s tested. And if you’ve ever read a review of theirs, you know how thorough they are. Fortunately, engineering, value, and excellent driving dynamics are areas where the Q7 excels in spades—but it’s appeal went further.

In fact, their reasoning is quite the vote of confidence for Irving and Lancaster, TX shoppers who may be considering the Q7! In their article announcing the award, Car and Driver called it the best match for those who need the utility for practical jobs, and enjoy luxury trimmings and cutting-edge advancements.

Add on the fact that the Q7 can tow a class-topping 7,700 lbs. max when equipped with the supercharged V6 engine, and it’s clear that this is a utility that has what it takes. The new-for-this-year four-cylinder option isn’t a slouch either—it can tow 4,400 lbs. Along plenty of cargo volume and a usable third row, consider all your flexibility requirements covered.

You can also consider your itch for the best and most opulent amenities scratched. The Q7 doesn’t require paying extra for leather upholstery, infotainment, and basic safety features—leaving you room to equip other gadget-lover dreams like the gorgeous Virtual Cockpit, or semi-autonomous adaptive cruise control. If you’re the kind of driver who gets enthusiastic about—well—driving, the Q7’s 333-horsepower V6 makes for a great way to have fun with three rows when the kids aren’t in back!
