What’s this then?

This is the seven-seat Audi Q7 SUV and this particular examples costs €83,055.

What’s so special about it?

It’s super-sized, super spacious, super smooth and super stylish too. It is perfect for large family who actually need to use seven seats all the time: the two seats at the very back are actually usable and with all seven seats occupied there is still room for luggage in the boot.

Any standout design features?

As with most Audi models the interior is a highlight. It is so well made and screwed together and the materials are top quality with lots of soft surfaces, smooth leather and cool chrome accents.

This particular model comes in S-Line trim and is very well appointed. The cabin features Valcona leather upholstery, heated front sports seats, the brilliant Audi Virtual Cockpit and a lovely three-spoke leather sports steering wheel with multi-function controls. It is a very comfortable and classic cabin.
