60sec road test
This is a super-sized SUV that is built for the roads of California more than Croydon. Put simply, it feels too big for many British and European roads. The flipside is that the huge SUV can accommodate lots of bodies and bags, with accommodation spread over three rows and seven seats. You'll certainly never go wanting for interior space: there's more than 330 litres of bootspace even when configured as a seven-seater and if you flop the third row into the floor there's an echoing 775 litres. It's perfectly attuned to most driving habits - unless you want to go off-road, in which case we'd recommend buying a Land Rover or Jeep instead. Audi now offers only two diesel engines on the Q7, so choose from the versatile 3.0 or the maximum-thrust 4.2 V8 if you want plentiful torque and a raspy diesel exhaust note. The choice is yours, but we'd urge you to stick with the smaller motor.
