Special Features and Interior Design
The 2014 Audi Q7’s interior is actually level for the course with Audi, this means a tastefully designed dashboard with high-quality supplies overall. The leading compartment is clearly constructed all over driver, producing a feel that is cockpit-like’s uncommon in an SUV. The MMI electronics interface boasts rational menus and sharp photos, although we still choose BMW’s iDrive or Mercedes’ COMAND for overall ease of use. Bundled along with it is Audi Connect, which gives an in-vehicle 3G Wi-Fi link, Google Earth data when it comes to navigation system and simplified Google search for POIs.
Adult-sized people may have loads of space when you look at the Q7’s first couple of rows, however the 3rd line is suitable only for children. Cargo room falls short of your competitors, with only 72.5 cubic foot of area with all the second and third rows collapsed flat — a comparable as a Honda CR-V.
Common safety functions in the 2014 Audi Q7 consist of antilock brakes, area curtain airbags, forward seat side airbags, stability and grip control and backside parking sensors. A rearview digital camera is standard on Prestige and Premium Plus trims, while a blind-spot warning program is standard from the Prestige. Second-row side airbags are recommended on all trims.
Performance and Powertrains
Powering the 2014 Audi Q7 3.0T Premium Plus and Premium is actually a 3.0-liter that is supercharged that generates 280 hp and 295 pound-feet of torque. The greater amount of powerful 3.0T S line variation of the engine cranks out 333 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed transmission that is automatic all-wheel drive are standard.
The Audi Q7 TDI is run on a turbocharged, 3.0-liter diesel V6 that produces 240 hp and a powerful 406 lb-ft of torque. The eight-speed automatic also reports for responsibility here. Energy economy is actually projected at a more laudable 22 mpg combined (19 city/28 highway).
The base 3.0T engine delivers reputable passing energy when you look at the 2014 Audi Q7, although the better S range version delivers additional punch with no penalty in the fuel pump. Nonetheless, our pick is the TDI turbo diesel, that will be even quicker in around-town driving and it has notably much better fuel economy.
