2020 Audi Q7 Performance

2020 Audi Q7 Performance Review


Performance: 8.1

The 2020 Audi Q7 has an adequate base engine, but it really shines when equipped with one of its muscular engine options. The Q7 strikes a good balance between spirited handling and a cushioned ride.

  • "Although they are optional, many buyers will likely come to appreciate the adaptive air suspension and rear-wheel steering features, as they provide superb comfort and body control as well as uncanny agility for such a large vehicle." -- Autotrader
  • "The Q7 may be Audi's biggest SUV, but it's surprisingly nimble for its size, especially when equipped with the optional adaptive air suspension and four-wheel steering. Combine that with good visibility and willing engines and the Q7 is a pleasure to drive." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "Overall, it's just a breeze to drive, and I felt relaxed every time I was behind the wheel. Sure, the massaging seats helped that a bit, but the reality is that the Q7 inspires confidence no matter what the driving conditions [are]." -- New York Daily News (2017)

Acceleration and Power

The base engine in the Q7 is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that puts out 248 horsepower. A 3.0-liter V6 engine that makes 335 horsepower is available. V6-equipped models also feature a 48-volt mild-hybrid setup. If you get the Audi SQ7, you’ll get a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that makes 500 horsepower. A refined eight-speed automatic transmission comes standard.

The base engine delivers sufficient power, but it gets blown away by the upgraded engines. As of this writing, the EPA hasn’t evaluated the fuel economy of the base model. The Q7 with the V6 gets 17 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, which is poor even compared to other V6-powered rivals.

  • "Part of its magic is ZF’s obedient and intuitive eight-speed automatic transmission, which consistently found the right gear when left to decide for itself and reliably swapped cogs when triggered by the wheel-mounted paddles." -- Autoblog
  • "The supercharged 3.0-liter V6 is a commendable powerhouse. The new 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine packs decent motivation for its size but lacks the deeper reserves of the V6 for high-speed passing and towing." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "We like both engines, but keep in mind that the four-cylinder's advantage is a lower price tag more so than improved fuel economy. … Smooth and quiet supercharged V6 delivers plentiful power with more than enough punch for easy passing and merging. … Shifts from the eight-speed transmission are seamless, and it always seems to be in the right gear at the right time. One of the best in the class." -- Edmunds (2018)

Handling and Braking

The Audi Q7 has lively handling. It feels surprisingly agile when equipped with its available air suspension and four-wheel steering, which provides better maneuverability at low speeds. At the same time, ride quality remains relaxed on most surfaces. All-wheel drive is standard.

  • "As well as providing optimum comfort, the optional air suspension can lower the ride height for optimal aerodynamics at highway speeds or raise it if more clearance is ever needed." -- Autotrader
  • "The adjustability of the optional air suspension, paired with the added agility of four-wheel steering, makes the Q7 surprisingly fun to flog down a twisty back road." -- Car and Driver
  • "The upside of a smaller SUV? More compelling moves from behind the wheel. Though we drove only the steel-spring equipped Premium Plus trim (flanked by the Premium below and the Prestige above), optional load-leveling and height-adjustable air springs are available. But you’ll not miss them as the conventionally sprung Q7 shrinks itself admirably when asked to move with purpose. It never encourages late braking or apex seeking, but as crossovers go, the thing is refreshingly capable." -- Autoblog
