The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
6.0
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 Lexus GX 460 pairs scads of off-road hardware with lots of luxury trim, but most drivers will be better off with a crossover.
