Audi debuts the 2017 Q7, a family-friendly SUV that punches above its weight.
The 2017 Audi Q7 boasts the best of both worlds— functionality and safety for the family-minded; blazing speed and off-road chops for thrill-seekers.
“Make room!” So must’ve said Audi’s execs when the luxury car company molded the first clay models for its 2017 Q7. With three rows of plush leather seats, this mid-size SUV packs all the spacious functionality of a station wagon, but ditches the dated wood paneling in favor of strong, elegant lines. Its family-friendly design extends beyond its no-nonsense interior and into its sophisticated safety technologies, which can command the vehicle to stop on a dime.
But this 333-horsepower chariot isn’t just for soccer moms pinballing their rug rats from dance recital to piano practice. Flip into Dynamic mode and the Q7 grips switchbacks like it’s climbing a rope in gym class. It goes from 0 to 60 in 5.7 seconds—as fast as some Maseratis—and is tough enough to conquer the off-road, let alone Mass Ave potholes. So, put on your floaties—the Audi Q7 is about to make waves in your carpool.
