    Audi Q7 Review – The Three-Row Flagship

    In what's become an established segment of three-row luxury SUVs, the Q7 lacks the visual spectacle, plush ride or outright practicality of certain competitors, but it's a dynamic, if expensive, alternative. The Q7 comes in Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige trim levels, all with seven seats and all-wheel drive. It goes on sale in early for the model year after skipping the model year.

    Redesigned after a seeming eternity in its first generation, the new Q7 looks more wagon-like than its predecessor, whose body-heavy profile shared platforms with the Volkswagen Touareg and Porsche Cayenne. Audi and Porsche are both Volkswagen Group brands.

    No longer a corporate sibling of the other two, the Q7 rides a unique platform and looks less imposing overall — a result of taller glass, lower headlights and a squatter, six-sided grille. Thanks to a lot more aluminum, which is lighter than steel, the Q7 is also anywhere from about to nearly pounds lighter than its ponderous predecessor, depending which trim you compare. But at 4, pounds, the new Q7 is still heavy. An all-wheel-drive Acura MDX is some pounds lighter.

    The Q7 boasts decent straight-line performance, and it shines on serious curves, no doubt to the dismay of any kids in back. The SUV's sole drivetrain as of launch is a supercharged 3. Even with three adults aboard, our test car had sufficient reserves to pass slower highway traffic and conquer steep uphill grades. Audi estimates the Q7 hits 60 mph in just 5.

    The Q7's eight-speed automatic transmission is a plus, shifting smoothly and quickly enough to go unnoticed. In an age where gear-laden transmissions often obstruct performance, an eight-speed that keeps to itself is a good thing.

    Like in so many cars, a dashboard button selects among a few modes that vary driving characteristics. The sportiest mode, Dynamic, cuts a lot of power-steering assist and introduces much sharper accelerator progression, though the initial lag persists. Still, if you barrel around hairpin turns in Dynamic mode, the Q7 excels. The brakes deliver fade-free stopping power all day long, and the transmission resists any untimely shifts heading into the corner.

    Coming out of a corner, the engine's broad torque curve pounds-feet from 2, to 5, rpm hustles the Q7 back up to speed even if you're a gear too high. We'll need to test a Q7 at Cars. It's not choppy, as the similarly configured Volvo XC90 can be. Shoppers who want more ride comfort should consider the Q7's optional adaptive air suspension, which eliminates some of the bounciness over rapid elevation changes and improves general isolation.

    It makes for a refined experience that complements the SUV's overall quietness, but for outright comfort, the XC90's optional — and exceptional — air suspension has Audi beat. The Q7's layered dashboard is free of clutter, with a thin multimedia screen that motors out of the center. The only stylistic head-scratcher is a continuous band of air vents that span the passenger side — functional ones, at least. Build quality is up to Audi snuff, with consistent graining down to foot level and sufficient padding in areas where your arms and elbows rest.

    It's an area where a few other Audi models still cheap out. Heated leather seats with power front adjusters are standard. Front-seat coolers and massagers are optional. The chairs have good adjustment range and a decent grade of leather, and you can swap it out for premium cowhide with an optional Luxury Package that also wraps lower portions of the doors and center console in leather.
