The 2022 Audi Q7 remains mechanically unchanged this year but has been packed with some enhanced standard safety features for a better drive altogether. Having the Black Optic Package now available right from the Premium trim and Adaptive Cruise Control with Traffic Jam Assist, Lane Keep Assist, and Emergency Assist from Premium Plus onwards, its base MSRP of $56,900, an increase of $2,650, seems simply justified to a large extent for its Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige lineup. Moreover, its 248 hp 2.0L Turbo I-4, and 335 hp V-6 powertrains are going to keep you thrilled at your seats with a 0-60 MPH of 5.7 seconds at its best.

2022 Audi Q7 Buying Advice

The Audi Q7 was last facelifted in 2020 and there have been only minor feature revisions made to the SUV since then. Also, the next-gen Q7 is far off in the future in 2024 which shall also be the last Q7 with a tailpipe. Therefore, opting for the higher model 2020 Audi Q7 would make more financial sense as the premium SUVs are known to depreciate heavily in the used vehicle market.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The 2022 Audi Q7 is the baggage of superior comfort which is further bolstered by an impressive towing capacity ranging from 4,400 lbs-7,000 lbs. The availability of a wide variety of safety features and enhanced stature in this regard across the lineup is another add-on. Yet it is almost impossible to overlook that meager 72-J.D power rating which questions its quality and reliability. 

The 2022 Q7 expenses can be a matter of a multitude of investments as the repairing of $2,832 is a consistent one for all trims while the maintenance changes as per trim level for the first 5 years. That being said, a payment of $6,418 is there for the 45 TFSI models of the Premium and Premium Plus which further surges to $8,146 for the Prestige and other 55 TFSI models of the same Premium and Premium Plus trims.

Buying Advice

The 2022 Audi Q7 Premium Plus makes the most sense to us. It has a good collection of features in performance, interior comfort, interior technology, and safety, substantially more than the base Premium, all for a marginal increase in price. This trim also offers both the 2.0L Inline-4 and the 3.0L Inline-6 engines, making it at par with the Prestige trim. So, an ideal buyer’s choice.

 

Features
8.0/10

There are numerous packages on offer for the 2022 Q7- Carbuzz

The 2022 Audi Q7 Premium comes as the base model at an MSRP of $56,900 and owns Audi Virtual Cockpit Plus, a 10-speaker sound system, and power-heated front seats. The Q7 Premium Plus stands beside the Premium with a price tag of $60,400 for assets like Adaptive cruise control with lane guidance and a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system.

The Q7 Prestige 2022 is the last one in the lineup costing $73,300. And it specs a blend of Remote Park Assist Plus, 20-inch 5-spoke-turbine design wheels, and Comfort Adaptive Air Suspensions as standard. Along with that one can even have Head-up display in this trim.

Engine and Performance

In day-to-day driving, the Audi Q7 feels quiet, refined, supple and capable- Autotrader

The 2022 Audi Q7 comes with two engine options. The base Q7 Premium and Premium Plus 45 TFSI Quattro models are powered by a 2.0L turbo Inline-4 engine which produces 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. While, the 55 TFSI Quattro variants come loaded with a more powerful 3.0L turbo V6 engine, producing, 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. And, this configuration is available to all the trims, unlike the base I-4 engine which exempts the Q7 Prestige. 

The driving experience of the Q7 is unforgettable as it can tackle any situation admirably. On top of that, the available comfort adaptive air suspension of the Prestige trim combined with the AWD drivetrain makes 2022 Q7 stand out on sharp corners. And one can expect the same performance dynamics with the rest of the lineup with their Audi Drive Select featuring Dynamic, Comfort, Individual, Auto, Allroad, and Offroad driving modes.

As far as the 2022 Q7 0-60 MPH sprint is concerned, it takes only 6.7 seconds, and that too with a top speed of 130 MPH. Part of the reason is attributed to its seamless 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission. Go to the bigger V-6 engine and you will confront a second quicker 0-60 MPH dash at your end but unfortunately, there seems no change in the top speed of this 7-seater drive.

Based on the figures, the Q7 is faster than the Volvo XC90 in 0-60 MPH by 0.8 seconds but finds it difficult to overtake the Lincoln Aviator in the same parameter by 1.3 seconds. One can notice a major gap of 152 hp between the Aviator and Q7 along with the Aviator's 142 lb-ft better torque which allows the Aviator to have 1,200 lbs higher standard towing capacity.   

Fuel Economy
7.0/10

The 2022 Audi Q7 in its 45 TFSI configuration with that I-4 engine has a mileage of 20 MPG in the city, 25 MPG on the highways, and 22 MPG combined. It can go up to 562 miles with this powerhouse and its standard 22.5 gallons gas tank. With the 55 TFSI layout beholding that 335 hp V-6, the numbers, however, drop to 18 MPG in the city, 23 MPG on the highway, and 20 MPG combined. And so does the peak range to 517 miles only.

As per data, the Q7 has 1-gallon extra gas tank size and 3 MPG better fuel mileage compared to the Land Rover Discovery which helps it to have 45 miles higher highway range. On the other hand, Volvo XC90 and Lincoln Aviator lag behind the Q7 by 36 miles and 37 miles in the same highway range stamina respectively due to their respective 3.7-gallon and 2.3-gallon smaller fuel tank.  

Interior
8.5/10

With its minimalist, contemporary design matched with loads of technology and excellent comfort and build quality, the Q7's cabin is a special place- CarAndDriver

The 2022 Q7 interior brings to you fine leather upholstered power heated front seats along with optional ventilated functions for specific trims. Having said that, the chances to reach the true potential of the Q7 ambiance feel are simply very high, much of the credit is owned by the Ambient Interior Lighting, 10.1-inch dual-screen infotainment system, 10-speaker sound system, and whatnot. The cargo capacity ranging from 14.2 cu-ft to 35.7 cu-ft to 69.6 cu-ft has been organized as well.

If that is not enough for you, the Audi Q7 Premium Plus interior 2022 can be chosen with the Executive Package which has virtues such as heated rear seats and 4-zone automatic climate control. In the meantime, we might notice some exclusivity in some cases like the head-up display for the Prestige trim and heated steering wheel for the Premium and Prestige only just like the 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system.

 

Exterior
9.0/10

For something with three seating rows, the 2022 Q7 doesn’t look at all like a bus- Kelly Blue Book

The 2022 Audi Q7 design language is simply enticing in many senses as it radiates that aggressive staring on the front fascia with its High-Beam Assist LED headlights of the Premium trim. This further upgrades to Matrix-design LED headlights with DRL signature for the rest of the lineup and so do the different color options such as the Carrara White, Glacier White Metallic($595), Navarra Blue Metallic($595), and Mythos Black Metallic($595).

2022 Q7 finds itself bashing on the stylish 19-inch 5-arm-star design wheels in its Premium and Premium Plus configurations. This changes to the 20-inch 5-spoke-turbine design wheels for the Prestige. ONe can even opt for the Black Optic Package which is an addition of various blacked-out elements all at once, giving it an even more engaging attraction.

While the Land Rover Discovery is 5.8 inches taller than the Q7 and is 59 lbs heavier. Apart from that, other dimensions can be rated at par with each other. Some other exterior features are:

  • LED auto high-beam headlights
  • LED DRLs & taillights
  • Chrome bodyside moldings & Aluminum window trim
  • Dual integrated exhaust tips
  • Rear roofline spoiler
  • Chrome grille & Aluminum roof rails
  • 20-inch alloy wheels
Safety
9.0/10

Rear side airbags are included from this year as standard equipment on all models- Carbuzz

NHTSA has not rated the 2022 Audi Q7 for its safety but IIHS did. It received top ratings in almost all the evaluations but misses the 'Top Safety Pick' designation as the headlights get a 'Poor' rating for lower models. In terms of crashworthiness, the 2022 Q7 is definitely a safe vehicle and will keep the occupants safe but it does have a few problems that buyers will have to deal with. 

For 2022. the Q7 adds rear side airbags as standard on all trims while the Premium Plus trim gets Active Lane Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control as standard too. The Q7 2022 also benefits from a lengthy list of standard driver-assist features for maximum protection of the vehicle and its occupants. Some of them include:

  • Audi Pre Sense Basic, Audi Pre Sense Front, & Audi Pre Sense Rear
  • Front & rear parking sensors w/surround-view camera system
  • Adaptive cruise control w/Traffic Jam Assist
  • Audi Side Assist w/ Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Traffic Sign Recognition
  • Lane Departure Warning & Vehicle Exit Warning
  • Night Vision Camera

Competition
8.0/10

 2022 Audi Q7 vs 2022 Lincoln Aviator

The Audi Q7 2022 has got plenty of thrust and capabilities to control that yet the like of the 2022 Lincoln Aviator takes the edge with a better surge. Though the luxury and comfort along with trim lineup diversity are pretty much the same for both of them just like the safety build but Q7 reliability is one of the major concerns, giving the Aviator preference here. 

2022 Audi Q7 vs 2022 Land Rover Discovery

The 2022 Audi Q7 and the 2022 Land Rover Discovery can be placed on the same level as far as their interior isolation, and ride dampness are concerned. The performance and cabin spaciousness are also up to the standards along with well-defined safety virtues. So, one can anyone between the two. 

 2022 Audi Q7 vs 2022 Volvo XC90

The 2022 Volvo XC90 and the 2022 Audi Q7 are some of the best SUVs in the segment. But the safety build of the Volvo is simply miles ahead of the Audi Q7. However, the same can't be narrated about their parallel comfort, interior technology, available options, and many more. But once you consider the utility picture side as well, the XC90 wins the preference holistically then. 

 

Final Verdict

The 2022 Audi Q7 is already one of the best in its class. It offers a great combination of incredible power with attractive visuals and a top level of luxury. Further coming to the changes brought in, the safety quotient of the 2022 Q7 takes a turn for the better, which makes it an ideal choice for both daily driving and weekend family getaways despite having worthy rivals.
