2014 Audi Q7 Styling

8.0
Styling

The look of the 2014 Audi Q7 is understated and sleek, particularly for a full-size crossover. For some, the big grille will spoil the look, echoing the chrome-heavy decorations of some American full-size SUVs, but for others, it gives the low-key Q7 some character.

The Q7 looks adult and sophisticated on the outside, without being stodgy, and crisp sheetmetal with smooth, taut surfaces combine well with one of the best sets of proportion in this class of vehicle. Whichever side you're on regarding the grille, the rest of the Q7 is well-proportioned and tastefully sculpted, however. The silhouette is long and low, especially by comparison to some competing luxury crossovers, and the details at the front and rear are modern and high-tech looking. For 2014, the Q7 gets three new exterior colors, as well as new 19-inch wheels with full paint finish and chrome accents. A 20-inch package is newly available for Premium plus models; and on the top S-line model you get special 21-inch wheels, along with a special gloss black grille, matte black window surround, and black roofrails.

Understated and sophisticated on the outside, warm and inviting on the inside, the 2014 Audi Q7 plays luxury crossover styling and design just right.

With rich leather, suede, and wood, the Q7 cabin is one of the best in this class--even considering the top luxury offerings--and it's both warm and refined. Climate and audio controls are a bit busier than they are in Audi's other models, but overall there's a sleek, clean look to the controls. Color, texture, and materials quality are all top-notch, with plenty of available customization options.
