2019 Audi Q7 Review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Audi Q7?

The Audi Q7 is a three-row luxury SUV with room for up to seven people. It competes with models like the Acura MDX and BMW X5. Power comes from a standard 248-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder engine or an available 329-hp, supercharged V-6. An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard with both engines.

What's New on the 2019 Audi Q7?

Optional 20-inch wheels now come with run-flat all-season tires. MMI navigation is newly standard for Premium models. The Audi Virtual Cockpit, a digital dashboard that can be configured to different views, is standard on Premium Plus models, as is a 360-degree camera system, LED headlights and taillights, dynamic turn signals, and the Audi phone box with wireless charging.

What Features in the 2019 Audi Q7 Are Most Important?

Front pre-collision warning with automatic emergency braking is standard, and adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert and other active safety features are available. Amenities such as heated front seats, a panoramic moonroof and xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights are standard, and you can add options such as an adaptive air suspension, a 23-speaker Bang & Olufsen premium sound system and Audi's Virtual Cockpit.

Should I Buy the 2019 Audi Q7?

The Q7 emphasizes driving dynamics over practicality and utility, so it should appeal more to enthusiasts than those looking for a cushy three-row luxury SUV. The prices get steep with options, especially with the V-6 engine, but some competitors live in the same high-rent district. It's certainly worth a look, especially if you're searching for a luxury SUV that's entertaining to drive.

The 2019 Q7 is good looking but has uncomfortable seats, jerky acceleration and excessive oil consumption since new and almost no storage compartments. Not good value.


Poorly Designed, Frequent Repairs, No Storage

-No storage in center console (or really anywhere else). -The wireless phone charging pad under the center armrest is too small for larger phones (My Galaxy S9+, S21, & my wife's Galaxy A71 are all too large to fit) rendering it useless. -Center console armrests "slide" forward, presumably for some kind of comfort, but all they end up doing is causing you to slip when you put any pressure on them. They can be dangerous while driving. -No sunglasses holder. None. Not even a thought by Audi. -Tiny cupholders with no lighting makes them impossible to see in dark conditions. Most soft drink cups you get at restaurants will fit very tightly and if they're styrofoam the spring-loaded stabilizers in the cup holders can break the cup causing it to leak everywhere. -Electronics system is clunky and overly complicated (and I'm an IT engineer & tech-head). -Driver assistance features often slam on the brakes when there's nothing there which is dangerous (and will scare the xxxx out of you). -Built-in navigation is less reliable than asking a tree for directions and takes almost a full minute to launch. And forget the laughably bad voice commands. I've never been able to give it any voice commands that it understands while Android Auto will work almost flawlessly. -Adaptive cruise control is an "upgrade" while relatively inexpensive Toyotas have it by default. My wife's Highlander, which was priced at less than half my Q7, came standard with adaptive cruise. -NO SPARE TIRE! "Run flat" tires are a joke and finding an Audi dealership while on the road is difficult since there aren't many in the USA (I now understand why.). -There's a jack, but there's no place in or on the Q7 to store it. They just tossed it in the back like so much cargo. Keeping it at home would defeat its purpose, not being able to keep it safely in the vehicle is just stupid on the part of Audi. In an accident the heavy, metal jack would become a deadly projectile, but they don't care. -Middle seat only comes in "bench" style, no buckets available. They're hard, uncomfortable, feel cheap, and make a squeaking sound while driving when they have no passengers weighing them down. -Rear seats too small for anyone except young children. -AC can't be kept on "recirculate" even if set that way in the vehicle's software. I pointed this out to the dealership and the service guys


Classy ride

This car meets my needs for safety, reliability and comfort. The 3rd row is plenty big for an average sized adult and there is ample room in the trunk even with the 3rd row up. The downside to this car is in the details. The cup holders are very small. Only plastic water bottle can fit it in them. The wireless charger is too small for newer iphones.
