What You'll Like
The Q7 packs a lot of safety and luxury features into a large SUV. It's longer than almost any other luxury SUV, with lots of room for seven passengers in comfy leather seats. The NHTSA bestowed a 5-star crash-test rating on the Q7, and the IIHS granted it "Top Safety Pick" status. Opting for the TDI clean diesel engine adds extra value in the form of fuel economy, with estimates of 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.

Audi claims the engine is now 55 pounds lighter than the unit it replaces, with fuel efficiency increased 12 percent from 17 mpg and 25 mpg city/highway to 19 mpg and 28 mpg, respectively. Additionally, a rear seat entertainment system is now available and Atlantis Blue replaces Mugello Blue Pearl Effect as an exterior color.

A vehicle’s warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer’s lot, and it’s important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission.
