Motor Envy: The Audi Q7 is a super-sized car that's mightily impressive

And it’s seriously spacious too.

What’s this then?

This is the super-sized seven-seat Audi Q7 SUV and this 2017 Q7 will cost you €72,950.

What’s so special about it?

The Audi Q7 is a family friendly motor that is luxurious as well as technologically advanced with plenty of safety features to protect you as well as other road users.

It’s also a proper seven-seat SUV. The third row is actually usable and even with all seven seats in use there is still room for luggage in the boot. This is a very practical car.

Any standout design features?

For me, the standout design of this car is the interior which is exquisitely well-made and expensively appointed. Everything just feels and looks premium, like it will last forever no matter how many times you use it. The cabin really is comfortable and makes you feel very safe and cosy.

And what powers this Audi Q7?

Underneath that large bonnet is a 3.0-litre TDI ultra quattro diesel engine that produces 218hp at 3250-4750 rpm and 500Nm of torque at 1250-3000rpm. The Q7 has a top speed of 216km/h and can go from a standstill to 100km/h in 7.3 seconds. It is mated to an 8-speed Tiptronic automatic gearbox.

Does the Audi Q7 have any luxurious touches?

It’s an Audi so it has plenty of luxurious touches. There are all-weather Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights with automatic headlight adjustment. The front seats are electrically adjustable and are heated and have lumbar support to keep you comfy and warm.

There is a 4-spoke leather multi-function steering wheel, a 7-inch colour infotainment display with sat-nav and Audi Smartphone Interface, an Audi sound system and deluxe air-con. This model also has an electronic tailgate and reversing camera. It is one fully loaded car.

But who would drive this car?

This car is built for families who ferry around a lot of kids and kit. It is for someone who is looking for a big, powerful SUV that will cover great distances in comfort whilst keeping their precious cargo safe.
