2018 Audi Q7 Walk Around


More than some competitors, the Q7 stands apart from the pack of three-row crossover models. Some might consider it a bit dull-looking, but the Q7 fits right into Audi’s overall design pattern.

Few design details could be called excessive or overdone. Viewed from the side, the Q7 bears a greater resemblance to a tall wagon than some of its more boxy-profiled rivals. At the rear is a clamshell-style liftgate.

Wheels come in a selection of styles, from 18 to 20 inches. LED headlights, flanking a wide grille, are standard with Prestige trim and optional for Premium Plus.

Interior

If the Q7’s exterior leans toward the dull side, the same cannot be said of the stunning cabin. Riders can envelop themselves in its dramatically ravishing textures and upscale mood.

Comfort is another strong point. Even for taller occupants, front and second-row seats are both comfortable and nicely supportive. Upholstered in leather, even in base trim, the front seats offer an abundance of adjustments. Three passengers in row two have ample space.

As expected, the third row is somewhat snug for adults, but the same can be said of competitive crossovers. Youngsters will like it better. Overall space ranks as excellent for five passengers, but less so with seven.

At the rear, the cargo area is spacious and flexible, if not quite as wide as expected. The standard power-folding third row yields a largely flat load floor. Cargo volume is minimal with the third row upright.

Genuine wood trim features either glossy or matte finish. Even the plastic trim elements look good. Ample storage space is available for small items, as well as beverages.

In certain cities, Audi’s MMI Navigation Plus Package can communicate directly with the urban infrastructure.
