The Audi Q7 uses its large size well, with ample space up front, including head and leg room, plus comfortable seats for the long haul, even for a range of heights and body types. The comfort extends to the second row as well, though there's not quite enough width to the seat for three-abreast seating for longer trips. The second row's sliding seat offers easy adjustments for more or less leg room as needed, and an option to get a pair of bucket seats instead of a bench gives flexibility for those that don't need full seven-seat capacity.
The optional third-row seating is fine for children, but isn't large enough for regular adult use. When not in use, the third row can be folded nearly away, opening up the cargo area. Maximum cargo space is 88 cubic feet with both the second and third row (if equipped) folded down.
A power tailgate makes getting to the cargo area easier, though the high load deck and lack of a power-folding third row seat, as found in some competitors, means it's not the easiest access in the class.
