If you're looking for a top-rated luxury midsized crossover SUV, then look no further than the 2018 Audi Q7. The Q7 goes beyond just being good-looking inside and out; it is one of the most well-equipped semi-autonomous drivers on the market for 2018. Large, yet surprisingly agile, the Q7 can safely and comfortably tote your family and friends around town or on a road trip.
What's New For 2018?
Since the 2017 Q7 received a full redesign, everything from the previous model carries over for 2018, save for a couple of equipment alterations to a few of the trims.
Available StylesThe 2018 Audi Q7 is one of the larger midsized luxury crossover SUVs available this year. Inside and out, the Q7 embodies luxury while not compromising on comfort or performance. The exterior features a massive front grille and slender headlights that emit plenty of light after sunset. Also, if you are looking for a vehicle that can get you through a rough winter, the Q7 comes equipped with a standard all-wheel drive.
There are three different trim levels to choose from, the base being the entry-level Premium. The Premium and the next level up, the Premium Plus, both feature a 2.0-L 4-cylinder base engine that garners 252 hp. The line-topping Prestige has a standard 3.0-L V6 engine with an 8-speed automatic transmission, which is also an optional upgrade on the two lower trim levels.
The range-topping Prestige trim features a massive amount of integrated safety and technological features and can be equipped with multiple packages. The Adaptive Chassis package is available exclusively on the Prestige and is ideal for those wanting to do a little off-roading, as it adapts the vehicle for ground clearance and control body roll.
The 2018 Audi Q7 handles like a dream, especially on the supercharged 3.0-L V6 engine. Even without the Prestige's Adaptive Chassis equipped, the Q7 is able to fluidly navigate difficult turns and make it over jagged road surfaces. You can easily switch between Comfort and Dynamic modes to get the ride quality you desire.
The 8-speed transmission has impeccable shifting abilities. In fact, drivers will not notice the transmission searching for gears while trying to shift. The Q7 somehow seems to just always be in the correct gear.
For being such a large vehicle, the 2018 Audi Q7 is surprisingly light on its feet. The Q7 can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.9 seconds, which is one of the top speeds in this class. The Q7 also has a remarkably short stopping distance of 112 feet going from 60 to 0 mph. When braking under normal or emergency conditions, it is difficult to notice any hesitation or nosedive from the Q7.
As the Q7 is a sizeable SUV, you probably would not expect it to get a decent fuel economy. However, since the vehicle had a lot of weight trimmed from its body during the 2017 revamp, the Q7 manages to get a decent fuel economy. The base 4-cylinder engine will get you 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, while the supercharged V8 will, of course, net you a bit less.
The 2018 Audi Q7 is an all-around safe, comfortable, and reliable vehicle. Its fuel economy and acceleration give it a few advantages over its competition. If you are in the market for a midsized sedan and can front the money for a luxury vehicle, the Q7 is absolutely worth checking out and taking out for a test-drive.
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.
