2020 Audi Q7 Review



2020 Audi Q7 Review - WHAT WE LIKE: Our Audi Q7 is a typical Pocket knife. The three-row SUV is just as adept at shuttling passengers on lengthy trip as it is hauling a trailer or traveling down a twisty two-lane alleyway. Credit scores its cushy as well as qualified four-corner air-spring suspension, part of our long-termer's $4000 Adaptive Framework package. The pricey choice is a game changer that offers the 5085-pound people mover the side stamina of lighter and also lower vehicles yet imbues it with the flight comfort of the Audi A8 flagship luxury car-- also on our long-termer's substantial 21-inch wheels.
WHAT WE DON'T LIKE: The Q7's smallish third-row seat continuouslies elicit complaints from team member. A small concern is the Digital Cockpit digital gauge cluster's brightness, which even in its dimmest setting can be blinding in the evening for some pilots.

Use of the big Audi also exposed a couple of towing-specific traits while in the hands of elderly online editor Kevin Wilson, that towed a little camper for a two-week journey.
" Linking the trailer's electrics set off a tow setting that, most obviously, led to the Q7's eight-speed transmission properly shutting out accessibility to its leading 2 equipments-- dragging gas economy down to an indicated 10 to 12 mpg," Wilson kept in mind. "Tow mode additionally shut off the automated-emergency-braking as well as lane-keeping-assist systems."

WHAT FAILED: Tires and also technology. Greater than 10,000 miles ago we observed that the front tires were putting on inconsistently. With just over 20,000 miles on the Q7's odometer, we sprang for a brand-new pair of front rubber at a price of $727 as well as had the regional Audi dealership provide our Q7 a positioning-- an added $600 expense. Thus far, the problem seems resolved, however we're continuouslying maintain a close eye on front-tire wear as the Q7 approaches 40,000 miles.

Not long after these tire troubles, the Q7's infomercial system started breaking down. Multiple motorists reported that the MMI display would certainly power off, retract into the dash, reboot itself, and afterwards rise back up from the dash as if nothing had occurred. As the miles endured, this behavior increased its frequency dramatically, with the Q7's infotainment system on a regular basis rebooting itself several times throughout the training course of a short journey. The Audi has because invested several days at the dealer searching for a solution, yet fruitless. We're awaiting the parts to arrive for the most up to date proposed remedy-- a new control system. We'll see if this remedies our Q7's infomercial problems.

Ultimately, we in some way took care of to break the clip for the passenger-side sunlight visor, and replacing the item set us back a large $536. While it was at the shop, we also had the Q7's 30,000-mile solution done. The $261 routine upkeep included an oil change and a basic inspection.


WHERE WE WENT: When it wasn't rotating regarding southeast Michigan, the Q7 took place a quartet of longer journey during the last 10,000 miles. The first was the aforementioned two-week, 1000-plus-mile outdoor camping jaunt around the state of Michigan. With a nearly 3000-pound camper in tow, Wilson found that the Q7 and its supercharged V-6 engine drew the extra tons "easily sufficient." As it should, considering our Q7 is rated to tow as much as 7700 pounds.

Not long after, deputy online editor Dave VanderWerp took the Q7 on an approximately 2000-mile big salami to Hilton Head, South Carolina. Additionally, the Q7 made 2 different trips from Ann Arbor to Chicago: one with Buyer's Guide assistant editor Eric Stafford as well as an additional with online editor Alexander Stoklosa. However, both trips were ruined by the continuous infotainment gremlin.
