2017 Audi Q7 Review Hub: The Best Research in One Place

The 2017 Audi Q7 isn’t just one of the best all-around options available for anyone seeking a versatile SUV. It's also a top pick from the Canada Drives review team and a personal favourite of one of our writers. Spend even a few minutes with a 2017 Q7 and it’s easy to see why it’s such a popular choice.

2017 Audi Q7
  • Supercharger V6 or I-4 engine 
  • 7 seating capacity 
  • AWD drivetrain 
  • 8-speed automatic transmission 
  • Backup camera
  • Navigation system 
  • Heated steering wheel 

Powerful and packed with high-end convenience features, the 2017 Audi Q7 still feels fresh and cutting-edge as it continues to deliver the kind of premium experience you’d expect from a luxury SUV. Plus, with three rows of seating for up to 7 passengers, it’s an ideal choice for large families and those who want the ability to bring an additional passenger or two on road or day trips. 

The 2017 Q7 lineup is available in a variety of trim packages—Komfort, Progressiv, and Technik. Most features are available across trim packages but there are some slight differences to be mindful of. 

Standard 2.0-litre inline-four engines are available in the Komfort and Progressive models, while 3.0-litre supercharged V6 engines are available for all three. With a V6 model, the Q7 provides 333hp and a towing capacity of 7700lbs—more than enough to haul a camping trailer with ease (towing package required). 

Behind the wheel, driving the Q7 is a breeze thanks to an array of driver assistance features, including lane-departure warnings, brake assist, adaptive cruise control, and a backup camera with rear parking aid system. 

One of the sharpest features the Q7 offers is the option to turn the entire instrument cluster behind the steering wheel into a navigation system, complete with GPS and map. This can be toggled on and off with ease. When it’s on, it allows the driver to better keep their eyes on the road while following the navigation system. 

Other perks include heated front and rear seats, heated steering wheel, and multi-zone air conditioning. Overall, 2017 Q7 delivers a premium experience for drivers and passengers alike. 

Add it all up and it’s easy to see why the 2017 Q7 is a favourite pick among the Canada Drives team. We’re not the only ones who are big fans, though. Car and Driver Magazine awarded the 2017 Audi Q7 two straight 10Best Trucks and SUVs awards. As well, the Q7 was a Motor Trend SUV of the Year Finalist in 2017 and won the Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. 

If you’re in the market for a versatile SUV that delivers a premium experience for drivers and passengers alike, the 2017 Audi Q7 is an excellent choice.
