Editor’s note: You may also want to read Autotrader’s 2017 Audi Q7 review.
Given its impressive new design and luxurious interior, you might think the 2017 Audi Q7 would’ve been an obvious choice for this year’s Must Test Drive list before we even got behind the wheel — but that’s not entirely true. In fact, many of our editors found the previous generation Q7 to be overpriced and lacking the elegance of other Audi vehicles. If you’re in that camp, even a brief stint in the new Q7 will change your mind. As Tara said, "This thing is the definition of luxury." That sentiment was echoed by everyone on our staff, with Dwight calling the Q7 "what a modern SUV should be," and Ben insisting that it was "just plain perfectly executed." One of only a few vehicles on our 2017 Must Test Drive list that needed no discussion at all, the Q7 is a class act all around — and it meets or exceeds expectations across the board. Pricing can get high, as it starts from $50,000 with shipping and can easily cross the $70,000 barrier, but the 2017 Audi Q7 does everything right: Tommy called it "the most comfortable and best equipped SUV I’ve ever driven."
