When we road tested the Audi Q7 we called it a five-star hotel on wheels and we wanted to hang the Do Not Disturb sign on the door handle and stay inside forever. So gobsmackingly good is the Q7 in almost every way that we had to include the big German in our list.
Actually, it's not as big as it once was. This generation, which arrived in 2015, is smaller than the previous model. Still, its cabin is cavernous with excellent head and legroom in the second row and good space in the third – although, like just about every seven seat SUV, space in the third is limited.
Fold those rear seats flat and the boot has a cargo capacity of 770 litres, storage through the cabin is great as well. There are two cup holders in each row and large bottle holders in all doors.
Even the standard coils and dampers give the Q7 a Bentley-smooth ride.
The Q7 and SQ7 both have a 3500kg braked towing capacity.
The SQ7 comes standard with air suspension, but even the standard coils and dampers give the Q7 a Bentley-smooth ride. Actually, it really should, because the Q7's underpinnings are shared with the Bentley Bentayga SUV.
For child seats you’ll find three top tether anchor points and two ISOFIX mounts in the second row, while the two third-row seats also come with ISOFIX and top tether points.
