The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
With a diesel option and a softer silhouette, the 2011 Audi Q7 does its part to tame the SUV bad-boy image. The new 2011 Porsche Cayenne is one of the few vehicles you can take off-road and out to the track on the same day; it's leaner and more athletic than before, without giving up the off-road ability.
