2011 Audi Q7 Features

9.0
Features
The Audi Q7 is one of the largest, most capable vehicles in Audi's lineup, so it's not surprising it also carries a long list of standard features, with a few worthwhile options.

Every Q7 has automatic climate control, 18-inch alloy wheels, a power tailgate, cruise control, and keyless entry. There's also a 12-way power driver seat and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Moving up to the S-line and TDI Prestige versions adds on a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel, as well as a huge panoramic sunroof.

This year, Audi's six-disc changer has been omitted entirely from the features list, replaced by more interior storage--and an option for HD Radio.

MMI may not be the easiest, or most effective feature, but the rest of the 2011 Audi Q7's infotainment pieces are top-notch.

Audi's Multi Media Interface (MMI) is also standard on all Q7 sport-utes. The latest version gets a new joystick-style controller, as well as a more intuitive operating logic, along with integrated real-time traffic and 3D mapping--all of which look snappy on a bigger, high-resolution LCD screen. It's easier to use the controller to steer climate, phone, GPS and audio controls than ever before--but the buttons and switches that MMI was supposed to replace have almost made their way entirely back into the cabin.

You can't avoid MMI, but Audi's upscale audio options are worth the cost. For cold climates, there's also a cold-weather package with heated front- and second-row seats and a heated steering wheel. Four-zone climate control is probably a bit over the top, if you're looking for the smallest corners to cut.
