TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2018 Audi Q7 delivers exactly what luxury buyers want: room for the whole family and some of the most advanced technology ever fitted to a new car. The 2018 BMW X5 remains a thoughtful crossover SUV for families, although enthusiasts may be left wanting unless the right options are selected.
