    Audi Q7 Review | CarAdvice

    My biggest-ever car has departed, and it leaves an equally big hole in our family life. The Audi Q7 really is big: You would expect a huge, luxury SUV costing fifty-four grand or nearly sixty-five as tested to ace family life, and it did. More surprising was how it did all this while never allowing its size to be a pain in the ass. You simply enjoy driving it more, and seldom curse its bulk. The old Q7 was a big car too, and boy did you know it.

    There are also features unique to the Q7 that help disguise its size. Visibility is excellent, helped by the thin split A-pillars. The Range Rover Sport which the Q7 replaced looked better, handled slightly better and offered more exuberant colour and trim options than the very conservative Audi.

    But for cabin technology the Audi makes the Range Rover feel two generations old. Most proved their worth, and many can be specced on other Audis. There was a detailed report on most of these in the September issue and now online. Once resolved, the cabin was the usual Audi perfection.

    Economy, as previously reported, seldom strayed far either side of 30mpg, and averaged It is immensely clever, and while not all of the tech options are genuinely useful or worth their eye-watering prices, one or two might make a huge difference to your long-term enjoyment of your car.

The A-pillars are thin for an ally-bodied car, so junction visibility is good.

    A guy just tapped on the window of our Audi Q7 in Halfords car park and asked if he could have a look inside. Just a few days earlier an impressed, non car-enthusiast friend asked me from the back seat how much the Q7 cost, thinking it might be a good thirty-grand replacement for her family S-Max.

    This is a compliment. Its subtle looks and seamless integration into family life make it feel like an upmarket seven-seat people carrier, which is precisely what a lot of its buyers want. Sadly my time with the Q7 is already nearing an end. Bit cheeky of the Volkswagen Group to admonish me for a lax approach to emissions, I thought. Most of the key functions are just a couple of clicks away: This is mostly my fault: But the Audi system does seem a little haphazard in places and lacks the intuitive feel of some rivals.

    I particularly like what looks like a Post-It note which appears on the main instrument panel with the sat-nav directions: But German logic has not always extended to switchgear and instruments: I tell them what I tell you: Tasks this month have included jump-starting a GTi note handily positioned terminals and transporting Ben Whitworth, me and bikes to the start line of the RideLondon mile ride, and back home afterwards.

    The new-car smell has now departed. No matter how great I might pretend to be at parking unaided, I use this system constantly, and now feel a bit blind without it.

    Together with the standard inch rims it allows the Q7 to be impressively isolated when you need it to be, and surprisingly sharp in Dynamic mode. I read in the brochure that the Q7 has Keyless Go as standard and assumed that meant keyless access as well as ignition. On a car of this price, it probably ought to be standard. Does a week in Germany with two toddlers and your German in-laws actually count as a holiday? Either way, our Audi Q7 was the perfect, stress-relieving transport.
