What"s New for 2023?

The quận 7 inherits the more powerful 261-hp turbocharged four-cylinder powertrain from the A4 sedan. This setup, used in models designated 45, has a 12-volt hybrid system. The Q7"s fancy LED matrix headlamps are now optional on the Premium Plus trim và standard on the Prestige, the latter of which also receives a new remote parking feature. The Convenience package in Premium và Premium Plus models now includes adaptive cruise control with lane centering, và a new faux-leather dashboard cover is now an option too. Waitomo Blue, Tamarind Brown, và Satellite Silver are new color choices this year.

Pricing và Which One khổng lồ Buy

We think the 45"s turbo-four powertrain is more than sufficient, and we"d pair it with the Premium Plus trim level. Moving from the base Premium up to lớn Premium Plus adds plenty of niceties, including a surround-sound stereo system, a wireless phone-charging pad, power-folding exterior mirrors with memory settings, 20-inch wheels, ambient interior lighting, and illuminated doorsill inlays. We"d also spring for the new Executive package, which adds, among other things, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, four-zone automatic climate control, heated & ventilated 12-way power-adjustable front seats, heated rear seats, & all-weather floor mats.

Engine, Transmission, & Performance

A 261-hp turbocharged four-cylinder with a 12-volt hybrid system is standard & should satisfy all but the most discerning drivers. Those seeking khổng lồ maximize power will be more interested in the turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 that uses a 48-volt hybrid system lớn make 335 horsepower. When we tested a 2020 Q7 with the turbo V-6, we recorded a brisk 5.0-second time to lớn 60 mph, which was slightly quicker than what we saw with the mechanically similar two-row quận 8 SUV. Despite its bulk, when the quận 7 is fitted with the optional performance tires on 21-inch wheels, it feels low & lithe, lượt thích a pumped-up thể thao wagon. The adjustability of the optional air suspension, paired with the added agility of four-wheel steering, makes the q7 surprisingly fun to lớn flog down a twisty back road. It also rides quite smoothly.

Fuel Economy và Real-World MPG

The EPA fuel-efficiency ratings for the V-6–powered mã sản phẩm are 17 mpg city, 21 mpg highway, and 18 mpg combined. The turbo four-cylinder model is more efficient with ratings of 19 mpg city và 25 mpg highway. When we are able lớn test-drive a 2023 Q7, we"ll put its efficiency lớn the demo in our 75-mph highway fuel economy test. We expect the four-cylinder quận 7 to return results similar to lớn those of the 2017 model we tested, which delivered 26 mpg on our 200-mile highway route. For more information about the Q7"s fuel economy, visit the EPA"s website.

Interior, Comfort, và Cargo

With its minimalist, contemporary thiết kế matched with loads of technology & excellent comfort & build quality, the cabin is a special place. Beautiful materials và design highlight the Q7"s interior, as vày the intelligent layout of its controls & the comfortable seats that feature both ample support and adjustability. Entry-level Premium versions come nicely outfitted, và the abundance of upscale features can get supremely luxurious in the higher trim levels. As with most three-row SUVs, there isn"t a ton of cargo space in the Audi"s cargo area when all its seats are in use. But its available space is comparable with its key rivals, and the rearmost row can be quickly raised or lowered via nguồn controls, which makes up for the middle row"s somewhat clumsy operation. With all seats stowed, the quận 7 had room for 25 of our carry-on suitcases.

The Car & Driver Difference

Infotainment and Connectivity

The q7 comes standard with a 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen và a smaller 8.6-incher located below that lớn control climate and adjust vehicle settings. You may find the system delightful or devilish, depending on whether you enjoy using touchscreens while driving (our staff is split). Audi has added this new infotainment system across its lineup; it can be found in the A6, A7, & A8 sedans as well as in the quận 8 SUV. All q7 models also come with the Virtual Cockpit digital gauge display, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, & Apple CarPlay và Android tự động hóa integration.
