The Top Gear car review:Audi Q7
For:Smooth riding, very composed dynamics, interior design and quality
Against:Not as clever inside as a Volvo XC90
What is it?
The second generation of Audi’s full-size SUV. The last one was a bit of a behemoth, but this one looks, well, not svelte exactly, but it’s certainly done a better job of concealing its size. Looks more like an A8 Allroad than a Q7.
Underneath it sits on an all new platform (called MLB) which will also underpin Bentley’s new Bentayga SUV, but rather than various over-powered petrols, is pushed along by Audi’s familiar 3.0-litre V6 TDI linked to an eight speed auto. Three rows and seven seats come as standard.
