What the Critics Say

"Spend an eight-hour day in the Q7, and the Audi won't shout its capabilities at you. But you'll get out, stretch your limbs, and feel like you could do another eight hours. It's effortless. Just like a luxury car should be." -- Autoblog

"This is a three-row luxury SUV with few faults. It's exceptionally comfortable, performs well for its size and has all the latest technology features. Whether you're running errands around town or taking the family on a multistate road trip, the Q7 would be hard to beat." -- Edmunds
