2012 Audi Q7 Review
Audi
has shifted things around under the hood of its Q7 SUV. Gone are the
3.6-liter V6 and 4.2-liter V8 gasoline engines and in their place is a
new 3.0-liter V6, which comes in two different states of tune. The base
engine delivers 272 hp and 295 ft-lb of torque, while the high-output
variant produces 333 hp and 325 lb-feet. The third powerplant in the Q7
lineup carries over from last year: a 225-hp, 3.0-liter clean diesel TDI
V6 with AdBlue to scrub the exhaust of even more particulates before it
disperses into the air. All Q7 models benefit from Audi’s new 8-speed
Tiptronic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive. The high-performance
gas V6 model comes equipped with adaptive air suspension.

Walkaround
The
Q7 is loaded with safety features such as airbags, TPMS and a crash
sensor. There are available tech systems to help reduce the likelihood
of a crash too. Adaptive cruise control monitors the vehicle in front of
the Q7 and maintains a safe distance. If the car detects that a
possible crash could happen, it warns the driver and prepares the
braking system. At 20 mph and up, the side assist system checks the Q7’s
blind spots and watches the rear of the car for fast-approaching
vehicles.The Q7 comes in several trim levels, including Premium, Premium
Plus and S Line Prestige in the gas models, and Premium, Premium Plus
and Prestige in the diesel. The base level Premium includes LED turn
signals in the exterior mirrors, 18-inch tires, dual-zone climate
control, heated front seats, power tailgate, sound system with iPod
integration, Bluetooth connectivity and rain and light sensors. The
Premium Plus and S Line Prestige get upgrades such as Bose surround
sound, driver’s seat memory, a panoramic sunroof, LED daytime running
lights and xenon headlights and parking assist with rearview camera.
These trims have a couple of extra options, too such as running boards
and headlight washers. The S Line also features ventilated front seats,
4-zone automatic climate control, power tilt/telescopic steering column,
20-inch wheels, heated headlight washers, adaptive headlights, special S
Line exterior trim and Audi advanced key.

Summary
All
Q7s have both a cold-weather and warm-weather package available. For
colder climes, a heated multi-function steering wheel is added, while
those in warmer areas will appreciate the 4-zone climate control and
window shades for the side and rear windows. A TDI S Line Package adds
appearance both inside and out. Popular standalone options include a
towing package for all trims, a panorama sunroof on Premium models, a
Bang & Olufsen sound system for Prestige models, and Adaptive Air
Suspension for a more responsive ride over variable terrain, also
available on Prestige models.
