2019 Audi Q7 Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 8.7

The 2019 Audi Q7 has an elegant, refined interior, with user-friendly features and tech. Passenger space and comfort is excellent, except in the tiny third row. Cargo space is a little below average.

  • "Audi has a knack for crafting some of the finest yet most useful cabins, and the Q7 is no exception. The interior of Audi's flagship SUV is highlighted by standard leather upholstery and a recast dash with an A8-style double-inlay design." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The Q7's modern and luxurious interior is a great place to spend time. It's attractive without being gimmicky, and everything is thoughtfully designed, placed and executed. The only real downside is its relatively small cargo space." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "In any conditions, the cabin is quiet and comfortable, with that high-quality/high-tech feel so typical of Audi products." -- Autotrader (2018)

Seating

The Audi Q7 seats seven people on standard leather upholstery with heated and eight-way power-adjustable front seats. Optional features include Valcona leather upholstery, ventilated and 12-way power adjustable front seats, 18-way power-adjustable and massaging contoured front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel.

The Q7 has five complete sets of rear LATCH car-seat connections. All of the anchors are easy to find and connect the car-seat straps to. The first two rows of seats in the Q7 are comfortable and spacious, but the third row is best left to children or small passengers.

  • "The Q7’s 2nd-generation platform expands interior volume and cargo space, which includes nearly 15 cubic feet of space behind the third row. For humans, that last row is quite tight." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "There's plenty of occupant space in the first two rows, but the power-folding third row is still a little cramped for adults of average size or above." -- Autotrader (2018)
  • "Driving position is highly adjustable, and it's easy to find a comfy spot whether you prefer a relaxed position or like to sit close to the steering wheel for more enthusiastic driving." -- Edmunds (2018)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2019 Q7 include a panoramic sunroof, a 7-inch digital driver information display, proximity key entry, push-button start, tri-zone automatic climate control, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking. The Q7’s MMI infotainment system includes Bluetooth, two USB ports, a 10-speaker stereo, HD Radio, satellite radio, an 8.3-inch display screen, navigation, handwriting recognition, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay.

Optional features include a 19-speaker Bose surround-sound stereo, a 23-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, wireless device charging, four-zone automatic climate control, rear-window sunshades, power soft-closing doors, and LED interior lighting. Available driver assistance features include blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, a surround-view parking camera, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, traffic sign recognition, automatic parking assist, and a night vision assistant with pedestrian detection.

The infotainment system has a slight learning curve due to the depth of options available, but the features are mostly straightforward and easy to use. Physical buttons and knobs are easily accessible on the center stack and dashboard.

  • "Logically arrayed controls, a fresh 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel and highly legible instrumentation -- both conventional and via the Virtual Cockpit display -- round out its more user-friendly character." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "There are a lot of features to command, but the simple MMI interface makes it easy after some familiarization. All buttons and knobs are placed right where you'd want them, and the redundant displays and controls allow you to keep your attention on the road ahead. … Bluetooth connects easily, and Audi's system is easy to learn. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both standard, but Audi's systems are so logically designed that we used them most of the time instead. It's one of the best systems in the class." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "… while the tech in the Q7 generally works well, the level of personalization (hundreds of ways to change the interior lighting!) is overwhelming at times. It all makes sense in the end, but you wonder how much easier things would be if you had less choice." -- Autoblog (2017)

Cargo

The Audi Q7 has 14.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind its third row of seats, 37.5 cubic feet behind the second row, and 71.6 cubic feet of space with the second and third rows folded. Those values are a little below average for the class. A power-folding third row and a hands-free power liftgate are standard.

  • "Cargo capacity ranges from 14.8 to 71.6 cubic feet – below the class average, but at least it's nearly all usable. The power-folding third-row seats, hands-free liftgate and low floor height make for easy loading." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "Where the Q7 falters a bit is in the utility department. Yes, this is a full-size luxury SUV, and as such it can haul more stuff than the majority of vehicles on the road, but for something so large, cargo space leaves something to be desired." -- New York Daily News (2017)
  • "Cabin storage is modest, with an open tray near the cupholders but a shallow center console. Open the standard power liftgate and the Q7's power-folding third row drops in a 50/50-split for a flat load floor. The second row folds in a 35/30/35 split. Space behind the third row is a modest 14.8 cubic feet; if you drop the second- and third-row seats, maximum volume totals 71.6 cubic feet. Those are competitive figures." -- Cars.com (2017)
