Audi Q7 buying guide

What Audi Q7 trim levels are there?

The Audi Q7 Sport is the opening model, but you only miss out on racy looks rather than must-have kit. There are adaptive LED headlights, a powered tailgate, heated and electrically adjustable front seats, digital dials and much more besides.

Stepping up to S Line swaps the Sport’s 19-inch alloys for a set of 20-inch ones, and the styling gets a slight tweak. Black Edition brings black trim, 21-inch wheels, upgraded air suspension and four-zone climate control.

Vorsprung adds a frankly eye-widening level of kit over the other well-equipped trims. There are soft-closing doors like you get in a Rolls-Royce, massaging and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, extra leather, rear sunblinds, a truckload of ambient lighting, a head-up display, a Bose sound system and all the driver aids you can legally use.

Audi Q7 interior and technology

As you should expect, the materials used all feel premium, from the plush leather to the cool metal. And there’s a huge amount of technology on board, but it might surprise you to find out that the dashboard looks completely different on pre- and post-facelift cars. Older cars still rely on lots of physical buttons and dials, and the touchscreen even folds down into the dashboard if you don’t want to look at it. How very 2015.

More recent cars move to the same interior as the Audi A6 and A8, with two touchscreens mounted one above the other in the centre console. The top one controls all your infotainment functions, while the bottom one is used for adjusting the climate control. It’s still quite easy to use, though, as Audi has made the gear lever double up as a wrist rest.

Audi Q7 engine range explained

(Most popular) Audi Q7 45 TDI diesel

The Q7’s lower-powered diesel engine, badged 45 TDI, should be plenty for most buyers. It’s a 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel with 231hp, and feels reasonably brisk getting up to speed. With standard-fit four-wheel drive and the Q7’s bulk, this engine manages around 35mpg, but can pull a 3.5-tonne trailer.

Audi Q7 50 TDI diesel

With an extra 55hp, the 50 TDI is a little quicker off-the-line than the 45 TDI, yet matches it for fuel efficiency and towing capacity – making this a very appealing engine indeed.

Audi Q7 55 TFSI petrol

Those that don’t do many miles or simply prefer petrol engines will find a lot to like in the 55 TFSI engine. Its 340hp and four-wheel drive enables a 0-62mph time on a par with hot hatchbacks and junior sports cars, but you still get seating for seven, that huge towing capacity and a big boot. Fuel costs may be slightly higher than for the diesels, because the petrol Q7 officially manages 27mpg.

Audi Q7 55 TFSI e hybrid

Like any plug-in hybrid, you’ll need to take the Q7 PHEV’s 113mpg figure with a pinch of salt. This is achievable if you mainly drive short journeys and make the most of the car’s 26-mile electric range. You might also choose the near-400hp hybrid for its smoothness and the way it transitions between petrol and electric power.

Audi SQ7 TFSI petrol

The Audi SQ7 used to be powered by a big diesel engine, but in more recent times the flagship Q7 has featured a stonking 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine. Performance is seriously impressive considering its size, with the sprint to 62mph dispatched in just four seconds. Just don’t pay too much attention to the fuel economy readout.

Your Audi Q7 questions answered

All Q7s are large SUVs and the vast majority have seven seats (plug-in hybrid versions have five seats). The current-shape Q7 has been on sale since 2015 and was facelifted in 2020, with tweaked front and rear end styling. If you don’t need seven seats and want something with even bolder looks than the Q7, the Audi Q8 has you covered.

After the A8, the Q7 is Audi’s longest car at over five metres long. It’s not the easiest car to park but parking sensors and a reversing camera are thankfully fitted as standard. That’s what you get with three rows of seats, and the Q7 doesn’t skimp on space, either. There’s plenty of headroom wherever you sit, and lots of legroom for middle-row passengers. If you need to carry adults in the third row, the middle seats can slide forward so there’s just about enough legroom in the rear.

Every passenger seat has Isofix points for child seats, and the second row of seats slides and reclines individually. The Q7 is as useful as it is posh. With the rearmost seats folded out of the way, there’s a whopping 865-litre boot in petrol and diesel versions.

The Audi Q7 gets some of the VW Group’s most powerful engines, all of which give the feeling of imperious acceleration. The two diesel engines are reasonably economical given the size of the car while, if it suits your driving habits, the plug-in hybrid will enable you to save you money on fuel.
