Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The 2020 Audi Q7 is not an entry-level vehicle and you’d be wrong to call it one. It used to be Audi’s flagship SUV before the Q8 barged in guns blazing, and it still is one of Audi’s finest vehicles on sale in the US market. The Q7 feels more like a lesson in luxury than a simple car. The new model is more of an improvement on the 2018 Audi Q7 rather than a new car, which is fine since the 2018 model was a great car.

2020 Audi Q7 Front Driving View

The car got a facelift in 2017, and for 2020 it again received a major redesign inside out to keep things up to date. In this review, we will compare it with the likes of the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class, and the Volvo XC90 to gauge how far will the luxury quotient takes the Q7 against them.

Features
9.0/10

The 2020 Audi Q7 is offered in three trim options namely Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. The first two trims offer two engine options a 2.0-liter turbo-four (45 TFSI) and a 3.0-liter turbocharged mild-hybrid V6 (55 TFSI) while the top-end Prestige trim is powered by the turbocharged V6 engine only. All the trims irrespective of the engine options come with Audi's Quattro AWD system as standard. Apart from the standard features listed a couple of packages are available on all three trims. For the Premium trim, you get a Cold Weather package and a Convenience package. The former adds heated rear seats and steering wheel while the latter adds wireless smartphone charging, blind-spot monitor, and rear cross-traffic alert system. 

The Premium Plus trim gets a Warm and Cold Weather package and a Driver Assistance package. The former gets you heated and ventilated front seats, quad-zone automatic climate control, power rear sunshades, and 12-way power-adjustable front seats. The latter adds adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist, intersection assist, traffic sign recognition, and active lane keep assist. The range-topping Prestige gets a Luxury package that can be opted to add 18-way power-adjustable front seats with massage, heating, and ventilation, leather upholstery, and Alcantara headliner. Optional upgrades include all-wheel steering, a night vision camera, and 23-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Engine and Performance
8.1/10

"The first-gen Audi Q7 was already among the most fun-to-drive 3-row s available, and its dynamics and driving enjoyment have only gotten better with this new, 2nd-gen model." -Kelly Blue Book

Engine options on the 2020 Audi Q7 include a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 and a larger 3.0-liter turbo mild-hybrid V6. Power figures on the 2020 Audi Q7 are rated at 248 hp on the 2.0-liter inline-4 and 335 hp on the 3.0-liter V6. The smaller engine prides itself on its fuel economy, while the larger one finds its strength in performance. Transmission duties are handled by 8-speed automatic transmission coupled with Audi’s brilliant Quattro all-wheel drive for both engines.

2020 Audi Q7 Engine

Acceleration in an SUV is usually not a hair-raising phenomenon. Put your foot hard down, and the speed starts to build slowly, and eventually the Q7 hits the 60 mph mark in a relaxed 7 seconds, while the quarter-mile takes 15.4 seconds. For a near 2-and-a-half-ton vehicle, these are pretty good figures. The Q7 powered by the V6 has a much better power output, and thus it has much better acceleration. It sprints down from 0-60 mph mark in just 6 seconds and nearly 14 seconds run to a quarter-mile.

2020 Audi Q7 Driving

The 2020 Q7 is a heavy car, pushing close to 4,500 pounds in the base variant. Still, the car feels sure-footed in the corners, especially if you equip the optional performance tires with the 21-inch wheels. The optional air suspension helps the ride be firm and controllable at all speeds. The four-wheel steering paired, available as an option on the Prestige trim, with the brilliant Quattro system, adds agility to this hefty beast.

2020 Audi Q7 Wheel Design & Brakes

Being a primary city car, Audi Q7 needs to have better braking than acceleration. Thankfully, it gets confidence instilling braking capabilities. The pedal feel is firm and the brakes are responsive, and the nosedive is kept in control even during panic stops. For anyone who wants to push the Q7 to the limit of its capabilities, this is quite reassuring. Panic stops from 70 mph required just 166 feet, which is surprisingly low for a vehicle this size.

Among the large luxury SUV segment, it's a surprise that the base engine on all except the BMW X5 is a 2.0-liter turbo-four motor while the X5 is the only one with the turbocharged inline-6 as standard. As for the pricing the Volvo XC90 starts below fifty grands while the BMW X5 tips the scale being the most expensive SUV, $4,100 pricier than the Audi Q7. Among the turbo-four powered SUVs, the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 is the most powerful while the Audi Q7 is the quickest in 0-60 mph run. While overall the BMW X5 is the most powerful and the fastest SUV with under five seconds 0-60 mph timing.

Fuel Economy
7.2/10

The fuel economy of the 2020 Audi Q7 isn't quite impressive, regardless of the engine. Audi Q7 has an EPA estimated gas mileage of 19 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway, for the inline-4 while the V6 engine returns 17 mpg under city driving conditions and 21 mpg out on the highways. No matter your choice of engine, the fuel economy for this SUV is on the lower side so Audi has equipped the Q7 with a big 22.5-gallon fuel tank which will ensure a lesser visit to the gas station.

The BMW X5 even though being the most powerful and with an inline-6 under its hood is the most efficient in the city beating the Q7 by 2 mpg. While out on the highway the GLE 350 and the XC90 are the most efficient beating the Q7 by as much as 4 mpg. When it comes to range the GLE 350 with a similar size gas tank as the Q7 offers the highest 450 miles and 608 miles from a tankful in the city and on the highway respectively.

Interior
8.0/10

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

German cars are known for the luxury and comfort they offer, and Audi ensures that the interiors of the 2020 Q7 stay true to the stereotype. Its cabin comes standard with leather upholstery, much like the more premium Audi A8. The dashboard has a clean and well-thought layout which screams class and luxury. The controls are logically placed, and after an initial learning curve is pretty easy to understand.

2020 Audi Q7 Rear Cabin

This generation of Q7 is dimensionally smaller than the previous gen, but you’d be hard-pressed to notice that on the inside. This lovely Audi is a seven-seater SUV, although the third-row seats are a little disappointing. Even though the last row is a little cramped for full-sized adults, the front two rows provide exceptional room and comfort. The driver and front passenger get memory seats as standard on all trims.

2020 Audi Q7 Infotainment

The 2020 Audi Q7 gets a 10.1-inch touchscreen as standard while the lower screen is an 8.6-inch unit. The looks good but using it while on the go is distracting. Apart from these features, we felt Audi’s MMI touch-operated system was easier to use than the touchscreen while driving. 

2020 Audi Q7 Cargo

Audi Q7 lies behind most of the competition in terms of cargo space which is just rated at 14.8 cubic ft with all three rows in place. The Audi Q7 is a full-size SUV that struggles to fit in large luggage as the third row takes up most of the cargo area. To increase space the seats can be electrically folded down when not required and you are set to carry enough for your next road trip.

Compare the Q7 with the GLE 350 and you would feel it is cramped and not at all spacious but compare it with the X5 you will appreciate the Q7's cabin space. While the XC90 is a curious case as its first two rows aren't as spacious as the Q7 but its third row can accommodate adults better although for only short journeys. While when we compare the cargo space then the two-row GLE 350  and the X5 have an edge with the former having the highest cargo space. That being said, between the three-row XC90  and the Q7 the latter offers around 2 cubic feet of more cargo space than the former.

Exterior
8.0/10

"The 2020 Audi Q7 is perhaps the most German of SUVs: calculated and business-like on the outside, but sumptuous and functional within. We’ve awarded 7 out of 10 points for looks, amongst the best in its competitive set." -The Car Connection

The 2020 Audi Q7 wears an aluminum architecture all around, which helps in shedding a lot of bulk from its weight. This improves handling and engine capabilities. Although Q7 continues to be heavier than many of its competitors, it suffices to say that this is because of premium features, rather than sheer body weight. The side profile of the Audi Q7 gives in a very strong shoulder line with bulky wheel arches which give the car a pumped-up look.

2020 Audi Q7 Side View

The Q7 looks rather sleek from the rear, an effect further highlighted by its double arrow-designed taillights. The dual horizontal exhausts inside a silver diffuser add to a powerful look. On the top, there are silver roof rails, which turn to black in the black optic package. The 2020 model gets a substantial update on the exterior and now looks more premium and aggressive than the last year's Q7. The standard headlights on the base trim are LED with the higher trims getting the famous Matrix LED headlight setup.

The higher trims get full LED headlamps, which look drool-worthy. The proportions make this already big SUV look even bigger, and the road presence on this is imposing. Compared to the rival SUVs the Audi Q7 is longer and shares the longest wheelbase title with the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350. While in terms of width the XC90 is around two inches wider than the Q7 while the GLE 350 has a towering stance with 70.7-inches of height.

Safety
9.0/10

2020 Audi Q7 is a big three-row SUV and for safety, Audi has been more than generous here as most of the features are standard and only advanced driver-assist features have been reserved for higher which are nevertheless available on lower trims as Driver Assistance package. As for the safety ratings, IIHS gave the 2020 Q7 the highest rating of 'Good' in all its six parameters although the headlights of the Q7 were rated with the lowest rating 'Poor'. Coming to NHTSA, it hasn't completely tested the 2020 Q7 as of this rating and has only rated for side crash test where it got 5 out 5 stars and rollover mitigation where it got 4 out of 5 stars with rollover risk of 15.7%.

Competition
9.0/10

2020 Audi Q7 vs 2020 BMW X5

The X5 is BMW’s addition to the SUV lineup that sits right between the smaller X3  and their biggest X7. Like every other BMW, driver involvement is strong with this one. It is also significantly larger than the X3, which is good for the space inside. 

2020 BMW X5

If you are looking for sheer snob value, well, there is nothing better than the BMW right now. While if you want some tried and tested which is high on sheer class and luxury though, the Q7 is the better choice of the two.

2020 Audi Q7 vs 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class

Mercedes built the GLE as a soft-roader, but that doesn’t mean it loses any abilities off the tarmac. It is an extremely capable SUV, with plenty of space inside. It also offers one of the best Mercedes-Benz cabins in the entire lineup, bettered only by the S-Class.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class

If price isn’t an issue, you should go for the GLE-Class. If you would like to save a few grand though, have the Audi instead. It offers almost the same amount of luxury but in a much more affordable package.

2020 Audi Q7 vs 2020 Volvo XC90

The Volvo XC90 makes for a brilliant SUV which is also surprisingly cheap as compared to the Audi Q7 if had in lower trims with a turbocharged engine. The engine is small, though the specifications aren’t.

2020 Volvo XC90

The top-end gasoline XC90 is still comparable to the cheapest Q7 available and offers a lot more bang for the buck as well. The only clincher is the brand value, where Germans will always be ahead of the Volvo.

Final Verdict
8.1/10

In the end, Audi’s largest SUV is quite a simple car, offering the best of luxuries in the most premium of packages. It isn’t insanely expensive, which is a huge point in its favor, but it isn’t too distinctive, which is a big con. If you want an understated SUV that doesn’t grab too much attention while it glides around town, well, no car does it better. Audi Q7 will take care of your everyday duties while keeping you on the move in sheer luxury.
