Expert Quotes:

Being from Audi, the interior is nicely done and the seats are comfortable.
MSN Autos

The Q7 fits the premium-large SUV bill
Consumer Guide

The Q7 is a model for high-quality construction and materials
Edmunds

The third row is not bad once you reach it; however, climbing in and out requires the skills of a contortionist.
MSN Autos

The Q7's front seats are supportive and comfortable over the long haul and offer sufficient adjustment. Ditto the second row, which provides the sort of sprawl space a family with growing teenagers will appreciate during a family vacation.
Edmunds

With two or three rows of seats, the Audi Q7 rewards those who can afford it with spacious, adult-sized accommodations in the first two rows of seats.

Almost a full-size SUV in exterior dimensions, the Q7's almost a foot taller than Audi's own A6 wagon, a new version of which arrives in the 2013 model year. The Q7's extra space is used well. In front, well-shaped and supportive seats are bolstered for long-distance comfort, and are adjustable enough that a wide range of body types can find a comfortable seating position.

Leg and head room in the second row are also good, but there's not quite enough space for three to ride abreast for very long. The second-row seat moves on its track to expand leg room as needed. All the seats on all Q7s are covered in leather, by the way. There's also an option to turn the second-row bench into a pair of bucket seats, making the five- or seven-seat Q7 also a six-seater.

There's an option for third-row seating; it's small, but it's large enough for children. When it's not in use, the seat can be folded to open up a relatively large cargo hold, which grows to a significant 88 cubic feet when the middle seats are folded down, too.

Audi's taken great care to trim out the cargo area to a high cosmetic standard, but in terms of functionality, the power-folding third-row seat on the Lincoln MKT does an easier job of converting itself. The Q7 does get a power tailgate, and it's made from aluminum to save some weight.

 

Conclusion

The Q7 feels rich, well put together, and spacious in its two adults rows of seats.

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.
