The 2017 Q7 represents comfort, elegance and a familiar medium of satisfying transformation. Audi is bringing to the market a revamped version of its familiar luxury wagon. It worth its price more than expected, actually. You can enjoy all the comfort provided by the 2017 Q7 without purchasing a single optional package, a few think already.
This is one example of good improvements during the time. A few could feel it a little bit larger beyond the convenient point, but Audi isn’t that stupid. It has abundant beauty and elegance to offer. Do not expect less.
Let’s see some of the main features of the 2017 Q7.
Engine and Specs
The revamped 2017 Q7 packs a strong supercharger 3.0 L V6, capable of producing up to 333 hp and a maximum torque of 325 lb-ft. This engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. This all-wheel drive SUV with these settings can go from standstill to 60 mph (100 km/h) in just 5.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 130 mph (209 km/h).
Despite the low maximum speed, the 2017 has a pretty good acceleration power, more than enough for a supposed familiar wagon. For its size and engine, the fuel efficiency shows great, being 19 for the city and 25 for the highway.
This new model represents the second generation of the Q7 SUV family. For this redesigned Q7, the Group VW is using the cutting-edge MLB Evo platform. You can feel great handling capabilities, mainly focused of secureness, despite its big size.
Driving modes are well tuned and make the big size feel totally comfortable, even on inconvenient roads. There is an optional air suspension for enhanced driving experience.
Q7’s Design: Family and Lavishness
Without a doubt, the 2017 Q7 is a beautifully-designed SUV. The front fascia, as mentioned a while ago at this blog, have the new “trademark” design of Audi, share by the TT and the R8 models. This freshness featured by recent Audi models is more than satisfying. Its 4938 lb (2240 kg) aren’t a problem to adapt this innovative and characteristic look.
The improvements from the past model are in plain sight. The previous Q7 was a little bit ordinary while this model features a lavish sense of grace. This time, the familiar SUV from the German maker has become a really gorgeous and exquisite. The luxury is evident.
The top-quality materials are abundant inside the cabin, where the luxury, modern design, and comfort are unquestionable. The tall, huge windows provide a rich view to the outside, which also improves the handling capacities.
The Audi Virtual Cockpit infotainment also mentioned in the Audi TT recent review, is in charge of commanding the interior tech toys. It will be optional, unfortunately, included in the Vision Package, along with surround-view cameras and avant-garde LED headlights.
Graceful wood details make the interior simply breathtaking. This isn’t any familiar SUV. You will have to tell your kids that they will be terribly punished if they damage something. We meant it. The optional Driver Assistance pack goes further in terms of comfort. As expected, all the benefits are provided by the adaptive cruise control. Also, the traffic signs recognition system provides a futuristic experience.
The Bottom Line
The 2017 Q7 is unique. At this blog, we love its style, both familiar and opulent. The polished product by Audi has a deadly rival: The Volvo XC90, which is focused on providing a familiar, safe ride.
The price of this revamped Audi USV can go beyond US$70.000 if the user wants to acquire several of the available packages. Regardless, the base price is going to be US$54.800.
