Three powertrains are available in the 2013 Audi Q7, but one stands out as the clear green gas mileage choice: the TDI diesel.

While the base 3.0-liter supercharged V-6's 280 horsepower and the S line's more sharply-tuned 333 horsepower (from the same basic engine) deliver more serious sport, the 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel V-6, newly reengineered this year, is just about as much fun--and considerably more fuel efficient on the highway.

The gasoline versions of the Q7 rate 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway, while the TDI diesel scores a more impressive 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. No large crossover is going to win a green-car gold medal, but among the three choices, the diesel is the clear winner.

Conclusion

The 2013 Audi Q7 TDI diesel is the best pick for gas mileage, and there's no real downside to performance.

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.
