The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
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 Volkswagen Touareg is expensive and fancy for a VW, but less expensive than some comparable luxury-SUV options.
