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



In the high-stakes game of family-oriented luxury vehicles, the Audi Q7 stands out with an array of technology and features not just aimed at satisfying the kids, but taking care of the adults, too.

Standard features in all Q7 models include power windows, locks and mirrors; keyless entry; automatic climate control; cruise control; and 18-inch wheels. Stepping up to the more power S line trim adds a panoramic sunroof and power tilt/telescoping steering wheel, too.

On the higher-tech front, the Q7 gets HD radio and available satellite radio; a revised MMI infotainment system with joystick controller and myriad functions including Bluetooth, in-car WiFi hotspot access, Google Earth maps, and Local Search functions. The Q7 with these options upgrades to rolling tech center, the on-the-go web access enabling fly-over views for the navigation system, wireless gaming for the kids, and more.

The MMI system can be a bit tricky to learn; its many options mean there are many menus, sometimes not in the places you'd expect, but it's much improved over years past. Many functions that MMI once replaced entirely are back with their own buttons and switches for easier use.

If you're an audiophile, Audi's upscale options, like the Bang & Olufsen sound system, are worth the cost. Automated tweeters rise out of the dash when the car is keyed on, and the sound is impressive. Cold-climate users can opt for heated front and second-row seats and a heated steering wheel. For those with kids that can't ever agree on where to set the thermostat, the Q7 even offers four-zone climate control.

Conclusion

The 2013 Audi Q7 offers first-rate connectivity with a mobile WiFi hotspot, Google Earth, and live maps.

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.
