The 2019 Audi Q7 is a mid-size SUV with room for five or seven. This model features standard all-wheel drive, two engine choices, a comfortable interior, and excellent technologies. On the other hand, the third-row seat is tight and prices can skyrocket when the various options packages are selected.
What's New for 2019
Now in its third year, the second-generation Audi Q7 returns with light changes.
Choosing Your Audi Q7
The 2019 Audi Q7 comes with standard all-wheel drive and is offered in Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige trims. Additionally, Audi is using a different naming system for the two available powertrain setups.
The first is the 45 TFSI, which utilizes a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. The second is the 55 TFSI that features a 3.0-liter supercharged six-cylinder engine with 329 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. The Premium and Premium Plus trims come with the 45 TFSI setup as standard but the 55 TFSI is available for an extra $6,400. The range-topping prestige trim is available exclusively with the 55 TFSI powertrain.
Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and maximum towing capacity measures 7,700 pounds. The two engine choices yield identical fuel economy ratings of an EPA-estimated 19 miles per gallon city, 25 mpg highway, and 21 combined.
Audi equips the Q7 with a long list of standard features, including LED lights, fog lights, leather seats, advanced power functions, and a basic driver-assist safety suite. All trims offer a Cold Weather Package ($750) that brings a heated steering wheel, heated outboard rear seats, and all-weather floor mats, and a Towing Package ($650) that adds a trailer hitch and wire connections. You’ll also find various standalone options, including running boards ($1,200), night vision assistant ($2,500), and a Bang & Olufsen audio system ($5,000). Metallic paint options incur a $595 charge, while wheel upgrades start at $1,000.
Overall, the 2019 Audi Q7 offers decent value for the money. The package choices can quickly raise prices, but the one option we think is essential is the engine upgrade, as it offers robust power befitting this model.
Leasing remains a fairly expensive option in January. The best value is the 2021 A4 which starts at $389/month and is actually $10 cheaper to lease than the smaller 2020 A3.... View All Audi Lease Deals
