The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
Though the 2015 Audi Q7 might show a little of its age, there are so few faults here that it's hard not to love this big SUV. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz ML-Class doesn't crow about off-roading: it's more concerned with things like fuel economy and in the AMG, superhero acceleration.
