Expert Quotes:

You won't be disappointed
Edmunds

MMI can be 'distracting and time consuming'
Consumer Guide

MMI is 'more intuitive than BMW's reviled iDrive'
Edmunds



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.

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.

 

Conclusion

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

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
