The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.6
9.0

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2012 Audi Q7 has what upscale suburban families want: a lavish interior, a cabin full of premium features, and performance and ride that are very carlike--plus serious towing ability if and when you need it. EcoBoost thrust and limo-like space may attract you more to the 2012 Lincoln MKT than its polarizing shape, but we're among its fans.
