2015 Audi Q7 Review: Decent Design, Overpriced Extras

A new generation of the Audi Q7 is already available at every Audi showrooms and yesterday, we manage to give the vehicle a test drive.

When we arrived at the showroom, we were greeted by a decent-looking Q7. There are plenty of air vents featuring on the front of the vehicle and this gives it a sporty finishing on top of a luxurious offering.

The Audi Q7 also emits a bolder stance and this cannot be helped since it is developed on the new MLB evo platform. The new architecture also made the Q7 lighter by 325kg. Also, it saw the Q coming out with many new technologies as a standard.

One of the technologies that we manage to experience is the auto-brake, accelerate and steer. In other words, the Q7 can drive on its own but at speed under 37mph. Also, we particularly like how the interior is made to be very comfortable and spacious.

The model we tested drive on the 268hp 3L TDI engine which developed 600Nm with the aid of an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The lighter weight boosted the acceleration from 0-62mph to just 6.5 seconds. We also appreciate the average fuel rating of 46mpg that we experienced.

On the downside of things, the Q7 is somewhat too costly to own. Heck, even the extra add-on options are all priced extravagantly despite them being another normal feature.


We will be happy to hear your thoughts
