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 stands out even among all the high-price luxury crossovers, thanks to its array of technology features that serve to take care of passengers as well as the driver.

Power windows, locks and mirrors; keyless entry; automatic climate control; cruise control; and 18-inch wheels are all part of the standard-equipment set. A panoramic sunroof and power tilt/telescoping steering wheel get added in moving up to the S-line or Premium Plus.

You won't mistake the Q7 for anything but a luxury vehicle in its base trim; but if you're willing to pay a little more you can give this SUV a more high-end feature set that includes things like Bang & Olufsen audio system--complete with tweeters rising magically from the dash on startup.

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.

Also worth the premium is Audi's internet-connected MMI interface with navigation. With it, there's wifi hotspot capability, Google Earth maps, and a well-integrated point-of-interest interface.

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.

We've found the MMI system a bit tricky to learn; it's still not always intuitive, and we wish there were a few more redundant buttons for some things (phone control, for instance) but it's a big improvement over the MMI of a few years ago.

 

Conclusion

A mobile WiFi hotspot, Google Earth, and live maps complement a set of top-notch interior trims and more traditional 'soft' luxury features.

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.
