Like most of its rivals in this category the Audi Q7 not only offers spaciousness and practicality, but also supreme levels of comfort, which really you would expect at this price point. The cabin is brilliantly constructed and all the materials of high quality. The list of luxury features is comprehensive, although it does get trumped by some of its rivals when we talk safety features. The 3-litre straight six Turbo Diesel engine is a real gem, and with 600Nm of torque you get great all-round performance, but best of all delivered in a smooth and unflustered manner. While an average fuel economy figure of 6.3 is pretty impressive for a vehicle weighing just about 2-tons.
