2018 Audi Q7 is eager to please with three trims and two strong engines

Audi refreshed its Q7 SUV in 2017, bestowing it with a roomier cabin, a new four-cylinder turbocharged engine, improved fuel economy estimates, and updated technology. For 2018, the three-row Q7 retains its post-makeover glow with no major changes, and it remains a stellar choice in the luxury crossover class.

Choose from three trim levels and two available engines for the Q7, including a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque or the supercharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder with 333 horsepower and 325 lb-ft. Across the board, all-wheel drive is standard. Inside, the 2018 Q7 features a 10-speaker sound system, leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, and seating for seven all as standard equipment.

The Q7 is dependably quiet and comfortable, and it's capable of a smooth ride, from quick trips to the grocery store to multi-day jaunts across the country.

5 reasons to buy the 2018 Audi Q7

What We Like

Comfort: Seating in the first and second rows of the Q7 are very comfortable and roomy, affording passengers a low-stress ride. This family hauler rides like a dream, rolling over bumps as though they barely exist. Spring for the top-level Prestige trim for the Adaptive Chassis package, which adds four-wheel steering and an adaptive air suspension for an even better experience.

Driving: There’s no denying that Audi makes capable, precise vehicles and the Q7 is no exception. While the supercharged six-cylinder version leaps forward as eagerly as an elementary school kid heading out for recess, the four-cylinder is no slouch. Steering is nimble and light, responding to driver input with little effort. Choose from Comfort and Dynamic modes for a custom ride.

Technology: Audi’s technology interface earns top marks, centered around the MMI® controller knob and smartly designed layout. A crisp seven-inch touchscreen is standard and an 8.3-inch screen is available in higher trim models. Choosing a Q7 Premium Plus brings along Audi’s 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit cluster as an option; it’s standard in the Prestige. A rearview camera, parking sensors, forward collision warning, and automatic braking are all standard driver-assist fare.

What Needs Improvement

Utility: For its size, the Q7 lags behind the competition in cargo space. The SUV includes 14.8 to 71.6 cubic feet of capacity depending on whether the seats are up or down, and room for luggage is limited when all three rows are filled with passengers. A power-folding third-row bench and split-folding second row ease the sting of scant space.
