The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
With a diesel option and a softer silhouette, the 2011 Audi Q7 does its part to tame the SUV bad-boy image. The 2011 Volkswagen Touareg has dropped some of its ruggedness in favor of the comfort suburban families want—but it's still not quite a rival to luxury-brand utes.
