The new Q7 comes in two different model types. The base model is the 2.0 TFSI, which can be paired with either the base or premium engine. The base model of the Q7 starts with a starting MSRP of just under $50,000. Those that are looking to upgrade will be able to choose the 3.0 TFSI model, which starts at around $55,000 and comes with a little bit more power and luxury upgrades than the base model.
Overall, the 2017 Q7 has similar engine performance compared to other vehicles in its class. The base trim level comes with a four-cylinder super-charged engine that can produce around 250 horsepower. Those that are looking to upgrade to a higher trim level will like the six-cylinder engine that produces over 330 horsepower. While the SUV has a lot of power, it still gets pretty efficient fuel efficiency. Drivers of the Q7 will enjoy 25 miles per gallon when driving on the highway and 19 MPG when driving in the city.
Similar to other vehicles produced by Audi, and similar to prior model years of the Q7, the 2017 Audi Q7 is best known for its significant safety features. All models of the Q7 will come standard with a range of safety features including air bags, brake assist, night vision, rear view cameras, and blind spot monitors. Due to the amount of safety features and the strong safety test results, the Q7 has very good safety ratings with consumers and critics.
While the 2017 Audi Q7 has strong performance and safety ratings, the reliability scores for the Q7 today are just average. While the true test of reliability will not be known for a few years, some of the biggest drags to the reliability rating have been related to the amount of recalls that have taken place thus far. While the SUV has only been on the road for about one year to date, there have already been five recalls completed. All of the recalls have been rectified in new Q7s that have yet to be sold.
Similar to other large crossover SUVs in its class, the 2017 Audi Q7 comes loaded with a lot of different style and entertainment features. The 2017 model year comfortably sits 7 passengers and the back row can be lifted for more storage. The seats in the vehicle are considered to have a lot of cushioning and the front seats each have heated and cooled seating control. All models of the Q7 come standard with push-button start, BluTooth capabilities, parking sensors, and the Audi MMI infotainment system.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Audi Q7 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Audi Q7 MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
