2017 Audi Q7 Walk Around


Compared to the previous Q7, this one is chiseled, sleeker, lower, more modern, with a prominent beltline and canted roof. Thicker crossbars in the big hexagonal grille, with arrow-like LED daytime running lights.

Interior

The cabin is called a Virtual Cockpit by Audi, and it feels a bit like one, with its controls at the driver’s fingertips and a detailed center console. The dashboard is wide and the controls are low. A high-rez screen atop the dash pops up when the car is turned on. The Multi-Media Interface (MMI) touchpad and controller use haptic feedback, which may be problematic for some to use. The Virtual Cockpit display and MMI infotainment system use powerful T30 NVIDIA graphics processors.

It’s sumptuous inside, warm and curvaceous, with ample headroom, thanks in part to a lower floor enabled by a new rear suspension, and thinner padding in the seats. It’s super quiet inside, thanks to generous application of acoustic insulation. The materials are mostly leather and metal or plastic that looks like metal. The overall build is tight and rattle-free.

There’s excellent legroom in the second row, with reclining seatbacks; it also folds flat. The third row is only big enough for children, but it raises and lowers with the touch of a power button in back, making a vast cargo area. With both rows raised, there’s still 14.8 cubic feet in back, as much as a sedan’s trunk.
