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.

Audi Q7

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.


Audi prices the standard 2019 Q7 Premium 45 TFSI from $54,545 (all prices include a $995 destination charge). This model comes with Xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, front and rear fog lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof, and a power liftgate. Other features include LED interior lighting, three-zone climate control, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering column, wood trim, leather seats, and a power-folding rear seat. This model also has a 10-speaker audio system with an 8.3-inch display, navigation, two USB ports, and smartphone compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Standard driver-assist safety features include Audi PreSense and front and rear parking sensors.

The base trim offers a Convenience Package ($850) bundles an Audi phone box with wireless charging, heated and power-controlled side mirrors, and side assist with rear parking sensors.

Premium Plus

The mid-trim Premium Plus model begins at $57,895 with the 45 TFSI powertrain. Building on the base model, this one includes full LED headlights and power adjustable and heated side mirrors. Other enhancements include a virtual cockpit, a 19-speaker Bose audio system, wireless charging, and rear cross-traffic alert with vehicle exit warning.

The Warm Weather Package ($1,550) adds four-zone automatic climate control, second-row side and tailgate window sunshades, a diffusor vent with Alu-optic trim, and ventilated 12-way power front seats with power lumbar adjustment. The Driver Assistance Package ($2,800) brings adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, traffic sign recognition, forward collision warning, high-beam assist, and park steering assist.


Topping the Audi Q7 range is the Prestige that starts at $69,695 with the 55 TFSI powertrain setup as standard. Top features include automatic high beam assist, power soft-closing doors, four-zone climate control, ventilated front seats, and second-row side and tailgate window sunshades. Audi also includes lane keeping assist, traffic sign recognition, park steering assist, and a head-up display.

The Luxury Package ($5,650) brings Light Alcantara headliner, individual contour front seats with ventilation and massage functionality, and Valcona leather seating, while the Adaptive Chassis Package ($4,000) adds an adaptive air suspension and four-wheel steering. The Titanium-Black Optic Package ($1,700) bundles 21-inch gloss black wheels, black exhaust tips, and titanium-black exterior trim. Finally, the Audi Design Selection - Murillo Brown brings leather to the upper dashboard and upper doors, gray contrast stitching, and Alu Sono/Natural Sycamore Brown inlays.

CarsDirect Tip

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.

The Audi Q7 has always been a good option in the luxury segment, offering consumers upscale features, a spacious cabin, and loads of technology. The 2019 Audi Q7 continues to follow the same trend, but brings even more high-tech features than before. With more consumers looking for minivan-like versatility in a more stylish body style, the Q7's three-row configuration is sure to impress.

Best Value

Audi's largest SUV is offered in three flavors: Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. All-wheel drive is standard for the Q7, as is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. A supercharged 3.0-liter V6 is available as a $6,400 option on the Premium and the Premium Plus, while the range-topping Prestige comes with the more powerful engine as standard. While it's not the one we'd choose, even the base Premium comes with a lengthy list of standard features.

If we were going to build a Q7, we'd go with the Premium Plus with the 3.0-liter engine. The mid-range Premium Plus comes with Audi's virtual cockpit system, which includes a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a top-view camera system, front and rear parking sensors, full LED headlights, a Bose 19-speaker audio system, lane change assist, rear cross-traffic alert, rear automatic emergency braking, vehicle exit warning, auto-dimming and heated side mirrors, navigation, an 8.3-inch display, LED taillights, a power liftgate, three-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Here's how else we'd spec it:

  • Model: 2019 Audi Q7 Premium Plus
  • Engine: 3.0-liter supercharged V6
  • Output: 329 hp / 325 lb-ft
  • Transmission: Eight-speed automatic
  • Drivetrain: All-wheel drive
  • Fuel Economy: 19 City / 25 Hwy
  • Options: Cold Weather Package ($750, all-weather floor mats, heated steering wheel, heated rear seats), Warm Weather Package ($1,550, four-zone automatic climate control, diffusor vent with Alu-optic trim, ventilated front seats, rear sunshades), Driver Assistance Package ($2,800, adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist, lane keeping assist, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, high-beam assist, traffic sign recognition, park steering assist)
  • Base Price: $64,295 (including the $995 destination charge)
  • Best Value Price: $69,395


Audi Q7Weighing in at roughly 5,000 pounds, the Q7 isn't exactly a featherweight, and while its turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder is a fine engine that pumps out 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, it's not exactly up to the task of hustling the SUV down the road.

So, while the V6 is an extra $6,400, it's worth the money in our opinion. Generating 329 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine is a much better option. Not only is the motor up to the task of hauling large cargo and seven passengers, the engine doesn't affect fuel economy too badly. All-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission are standard for both engines.

Both powertrains are EPA rated to get up to 19 miles per gallon in the city, 25 mpg on the highway, and 21 combined. Towing capacity is rated at 7,700 pounds for the V6 and 4,400 pounds for the smaller four-cylinder.


The Q7 has well-proportioned lines that give the SUV a sophisticated design with muscular cues. Despite being a massive vehicle, the Q7 has a low drag coefficient of 0.32, which makes it a more attractive alternative to boxier options in the segment. The beautiful design of the LED headlights and taillights are also standout features for the Q7.

On the inside, the Q7 can trick some into thinking you're in a true luxury machine, think along the lines of a Bentley for the range-topping Prestige trim. Even the base Premium model features upscale leather upholstery, impeccable build quality, and attractive trim pieces. Passenger space is also incredible, as the second row is actually big enough for three adults. The third row could pose to be an issue, though, and is best suited for children.

If there's a downside to the Q7's cabin, it's cargo capacity. With the third row in use, the SUV offers just 14.8 cubic feet of cargo. Fold that down, and you're looking at 37.5 cubes, which isn't stellar. Behind the first row, the Q7 offers a total of 71.6 cubic feet of cargo space.

The Best and Worst Things

Audi Q7

A truly luxurious cabin and excellent towing capacity make the Q7 a great seven-passenger option. Add all of Audi's latest high-tech gizmos, and you're looking at a leader.

Unfortunately, all of this comes at a steep price, which can rise to absurd amounts if you go with a fully-loaded model. Cargo capacity isn't stellar, either.

Right For? Wrong For?

Consumers seeking a high-tech SUV that has an upscale cabin and all of the latest features. Being able to seat seven never looked or felt this good, and never came with this many features.

Those on a budget. With a starting price of $54,545 for the Premium trim with the four-cylinder engine, the Q7 isn't exactly affordable. Other seven-passenger SUVs are a little more spacious, too, which could be higher up on your priority list if you're looking to carry more cargo or fit adults in the third row.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Audi Q7 punches above its weight class when it comes to technology, versatility, and luxury. It may have an Audi badge, but the SUV feels, if you can believe it, even more premium. With three usable rows, a strong V6 engine, and excellent materials, the Q7 is a competitive mid-size SUV that's a great combination of what a lot of consumers are looking for.
