The Q7 is hefty, with bulky weight around the middle of the car. It’s got a squarish shape and is in line with others in the Audi SUV range, just a more beefed up, spaced out version. It looks sophisticated and stylish but I do think the Volvo and the BMW out-design it. From the exterior anyway.
The interior looks premium, with quality finishings everywhere you turn. The “Valcona” leather seats look and feel great while sitting on them, and you especially notice the comfort of the leather on bare legs. The S line model's steering wheel is leather with perforated panels and a flat bottom shape, which I’m quite partial to and Audi has perfected this shape in various forms on different cars.
It comes with a panoramic glass sunroof as standard on 50 TDI models, which lets in lots of lovely light to the car. The centre console is finished with high shine and the gear shifter is very wide, it fits nicely under the hands. All models get the Audi 'Virtual Cockpit' digital driver information screen, and that feels very 2020.
