It might be showing its age now, but this second-generation Audi Q7 is still one of our favorite family cars out there. And while it’s fairly pricey, we don’t think there’s a better way to transport seven people at once if you can stretch to that. On the one hand it is extremely comfortable thanks to the standard air suspension; In addition, all five rear seats receive Isofix points. And if you have to transport adults, there is enough space even in the back row. The mild-hybrid engines are impressively economical considering how much power they put out, and the comfortable, quiet cockpit is beautifully finished. And in the context of similarly sized luxury SUVs, the Q7 actually doesn’t look bad, and on a like-for-like basis it’s quite a bit cheaper than a BMW X7 or a Volvo XC90. What’s not to like?
Price of: £60,570
Our favorite variant: Q7 S Line 45 TDI Quattro, £63,720
Have to know: Don’t be tempted to upgrade beyond the S-Line; The more expensive Black Edition and the projection’s huge wheels mean they don’t ride quite as well, and the latter in particular is very expensive to buy.
