The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Audi Q7 is a good choice for those who want sophistication and style in an SUV but don’t need the overwrought off-road look. The 2008 Volkswagen Touareg has more toughness than most mid-size SUVs for heavy-duty towing and off-road needs yet on-the-road comfort doesn’t suffer.
