For those who didn't like the Porsche Cayenne, here's a some what comparable car by Audi. This huge terrain SUV which is in the same category as the Hummer H2, Porsche Cayenne and Land Rover is the longest of all these listed above. The 5 meters long Audi Q7 is too big for a regular parking spot, but therefor the camera's and sensors will help you out. Audi always offers luxury and comfortable cars, but this massive limousine with a slightly higher seat will deffinatly make you feel comfortable and safe.
Inside, the Q7 feels like a first class trip limousine. As the name suggests, the Q7somewhere between an Audi A6 and A8. The interior is overwhelming. Everything is spacious and even oversized. For example the mountain box between the front seats is greater than the glove compartment of an average car! The finish is, as befits Audi,spotless. The advantage of the "Verano" leather interior of the test car was that after a day on the management is easy to clean.
The equipment leaves little to be desired. That is, if enough boxes on the options list are checked. The price in the brochure is just the start of negotiations. The real pamperingstarts with ProLine +, S-Line and other packages. I've heard several bad things about the Bose sound system, which is a very decent brand if you ask me.
Highly recommended is the "Adaptive Cruise Control" with which the car keeps distance himself. In practice, even manages to take this fully automatic parallel to drive! "Side Assist" provides a light in the mirror when a vehicle is in the blind spot. "Advanced Key" makes life easy with keyless entry. Moreover, preferences of the car are stored in the key.
Specifications and Driving Experience
The Audi Q7 is big and heavy, but there are equally large and heavy engine in front. The reason for this test drive is the new 4.2-liter diesel engine that the Q7 is available for severalmonths. This diesel engine is a powerhouse of the first order. Although the Audi Q7 and Volkswagen Touareg share the same technical base, 4.2 liter V8 delivers more power thanVolkswagen's 5.0 liter V10. The Audi is good for 326 hp and a torque of 760 Nm.
The effect of all that power is downright addictive. A tap on the accelerator is enough to get away to spray. The nose up slightly, the Q7 rears like a wild horse and shoot it off. The sprint from 0 to 100 km / h is cleared in just 6.4 seconds.
