The Q7 arrived for sale in 2007 and became Audi's very first SUV. The Q stands for Quattro, the 4-wheel drive system that Audi uses across a variety of its models but perhaps most befittingly in its 4x4 SUVs which since the q7 has spawned smaller siblings the Q5 and the Q3.
The Q7 sits at the top of the Q tree as the biggest 4x4 that Audi produce and has managed to emerge as a serious contender to the BMW x5 And an alternative to the likes of the range rover and Porsche cayenne for luxury 4x4 buyers.
Originally for sale with a variety of engine sizes and types with the range topping 6.0L V12 Diesel engine, the first of its kind. Since 2013 though Audi only offers a 3.0 v6 or 4.2 v8 TDI.
The Q7 is generally praised as a 4x4 geared for the road rather than off-road and favours practicality over performance with 7 seats, a very spacious interior and a smooth ride. The S-Line and S-line plus trim levels are essential for that extra bit of luxury with the 3.0 TDI engine the most popular model for sale but we would recommend the much rarer 6.0 Twin-turbo V12 for its high level of performance.
Despite being a car that Romans have never regularly stocked we are always in the market for high spec examples as we look to diversify our 4x4 range.
