What's New

The updated 2020 Audi Q7 adds a new 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine with more horsepower and torque than last year's version. Additionally, it gets the latest version of the brand's MMI touch response infotainment system with dual touchscreens in place of the old rotary dial and button setup.

The Q7 also receives some minor styling tweaks. It features a new front spoiler design and new 19-inch wheels. Finally, active safety features have been made more available for the 2020 model year.

Choosing Your Audi Q7

The Q7 is available in Audi's traditional three trim levels: Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. Pricing starts at $55,795 including destination for the Premium model and climbs to $72,195 for the range-topping Prestige.

Engine Choices

The Q7 has a choice of two gas engines. The Premium and Premium Plus start with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder called 45 TFSI in Audi parlance. The Prestige comes standard with the new 3.0-liter turbo V6, or 55 TFSI. The V6 is available on the lower two trims for an extra $6,000 (Premium) or $6,600 (Premium Plus).

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinderr248 hp273 lb-ftNot Yet Rated
3.0L Turbo V6335 hp369 lb-ft18 mpg

Both engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Audi's quattro all-wheel-drive system is standard on every model.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Audi Q7 is a midsize crossover SUV with seating for seven passengers across three rows. Cargo capacity has yet to be confirmed by the automaker.

Safety Features

Every Q7 comes standard with automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and front and rear parking sensors.

Midrange Premium Plus models further add blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a vehicle exit warning system, and a surround-view camera system. Those first three features are available on the Premium as part of the Convenience Package ($1,200).

The Prestige trim ups the ante with standard adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, traffic jam assist, and traffic sign recognition. All of these features can be equipped on the Premium Plus through Driver Assistance Package ($1,750).


Dials and buttons have effectively been abolished from the Q7’s dash, with the MMI rotary controller giving way to a pair touchscreens: a 10.1-inch upper and an 8.6-inch lower unit. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, navigation, HD radio, satellite radio, and Bluetooth are all standard. Every model also features Audi's virtual cockpit system with a 12.3-inch LCD digital instrument cluster.

The Premium Plus trim ups connectivity with a wireless phone charger and signal booster. This is also part of the Convenience Package ($1,200) on Premium models. The Prestige model adds a head-up display.

Premium - From $55,795

As you’d expect from a luxury crossover, every Q7 is well equipped. The Premium trim comes with a sunroof, leather upholstery, eight-way power front seats with memory for the driver's seat, three-zone climate control, a power steering column, and a power-folding third row. It also benefits from keyless entry, LED headlights and taillights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, roof rails, a power tailgate, and 19-inch wheels.

The $750 Cold Weather Package provides a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, and all-weather floor mats. The $1,200 Convenience Package bundles blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, the wireless charging pad, ambient interior LED lighting, auto-dimming side mirrors, and more.

Premium Plus - From $58,195

For a modest $2,400 price increase, the Premium Plus adds some desirable features over the base model. These include the contents of the Convenience Package, a 3D surround-sound audio system, and a surround-view camera systems. Premium Plus models with the V6 also get 20-inch wheels.

The newly-available Warm Weather Package ($1,600) upgrades to 12-way power front seats with heating and ventilation, four-zone climate control, and sunshades for the rear doors windows. .

Prestige - From $72,195

There’s a substantial price hike for Prestige Q7s, though roughly half of this increase is explained by the now-standard V6 engine. Other key upgrades include adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, the head-up display, the contents of the Warm Weather Package, dual-pane acoustic glass for the side windows, and power soft-closing doors.

The main option for Prestige buyers is the $6,400 Luxury Package. This upgrades the front seats to 18-way power with massage capability, memory functionality for the passenger seat, an Alcantara headliner, and leather coverings for the instrument panel, door armrests, center console, and more. Prestige buyers can also add night vision assistance for $2,500 or a 23-speaker Bang and Olufsen audio system for $4,900.

CarsDirect Tip

While the 2020 Audi Q7 Prestige offers limo-like specifications, especially with some of the available packages, you don’t really need to stray beyond the Premium trim to get a well-appointed and comfortable crossover.

Stoic excellence. One-percenter crossover SUVs are proliferating these days, coming from brands as haughty as Aston Martin and Rolls-Royce. Yet one spin in the 2020 Audi Q7 will have you doubting the merit of those highfalutin vehicles.

Even a fully-loaded Q7 won't break the six-figure barrier, but its silent cabin, massive space, and top-notch materials will have spoiled passengers thinking otherwise. Just as convincing is its impeccable ride and potent powertrains, including a new 500-horsepower V8 on the SQ7 variant (covered separately).

The sum of all these attributes is an understated, unflappable, highly luxurious vehicle in the proper Germanic tradition. The 2020 refresh, which brings mildly massaged styling and updated cabin tech, only further entrenches the Q7's position as a preeminent luxury crossover SUV.

More power, worse fuel economy. A shuffling of engine options marks the Q7. Chief among the underhood updates is the loss of the 3.0-liter supercharged V6. Replacing that beloved V6 is a new turbocharged replacement of similar displacement. With 335 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, the turbo V6 trumps the old engine by two hp and, more significantly, 44 lb-ft of torque. The added grunt helps this big crossover hustle from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds.

The new V6 doesn't do anything to boost gas mileage, though. It's actually the opposite: Q7s with the turbo V6 are rated at just 17 miles per gallon city, 21 mpg highway, and 18 combined, according to the EPA. That's a steep drop from the prior-year supercharged V6, which was rated for 19/25/21 mpg (city/highway/combined). The drastic drop in fuel economy comes despite the incorporation of 48-volt mild hybrid technology.

Fuel economy isn't the only thing the new engine gives up. In our first spin of this turbo-six, we were dismayed to find that there's not as much character as the old supercharged engine had. The mediocre sound under heavy throttle also leaves our ears pining for the old engine. Nonetheless, this turbo V6 remains our choice of the litter.

Coming standard on most Q7 trims is a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder. This engine is unchanged from last year, and still feels like the budget option in terms of acceleration and smoothness of operation. We'd much rather suffer the fuel economy of the V6 than the tepid persona of this unexciting motor.

Newly available is an SQ7 that's powered by a twin-turbo V8. It generates a stout 500 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque. It won't be cheap by any means, but has the potential to hit 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds. For those who want a Porsche Cayenne without spending Porsche money, the SQ7 is your chariot.

Whichever motor suits your fancy, all Q7s ride with aplomb. The base suspension would be fine enough for us, but an available air suspension coddles like memory foam – try it and you'll be hard-pressed to settle for the standard coil-spring setup, good as it is. And the eight-speed automatic transmission that mates up to all engines does its part to contribute to the serenity of the Q7, as shifts are glassy smooth and largely imperceptible.

Audi Q7

Tech wizardry. Last year's Q7 was plenty advanced in terms of in-car technology, but the 2020 model ratchets that up threefold – and by that we mean three screens now greet drivers in all models.

It starts with a newly standard 12.3-inch all-digital instrument cluster that displays customizable readouts, navigation maps, and other pertinent data. Moving from a retractable screen on the dashtop to an in-dash design is the primary 10.1-inch infotainment display; it is now controlled by touch rather than a console-mounted rotary knob. Climate controls are handled by an 8.6-inch touchscreen positioned below the 10.1-inch unit.

The result visually streamlines and simplifies an interior design that was already tastefully pared down to begin with. Moving the infotainment display to an in-dash touchscreen is a particularly welcome move, opening up more forward visibility. Its operation will require drivers to look away and down from the road, however.

For those enamored with touchscreens, the tech-heavy updates will be lauded; those who prefer spinning knobs and pressing buttons will be cursing the revised interior. Luckily, the Audi infotainment system, be it touch- or rotary-enabled, is an intuitive software that won't leave you shouting profanities while trying to change the radio station. Speaking of radio, the Q7 has standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Other technology abounds elsewhere. An available air suspension can lower the vehicle and soak up even the most rutted roads. The optional head-up display and surround-view camera provide additional peace of mind. A 23-speaker sound system offers premium sound on the top-spec Prestige trim.

Comfortable, well-built interior. The rest of the interior is a study in fine materials and high-quality craftsmanship. Even base models won't leave anyone wanting for much.

Every Q7 is upholstered with genuine leather; high-trim models can be had with sumptuous quilted hides that are softer than the base-model stuff. The standard seats are heated and come with multi-way power-adjustment, while the premium seats are heated, cooled, and can massage away the knots in your back.

The switchgear is especially definitive of the Q7's station in life. Push down a window switch; spin the dial for the lights; turn on the wipers; each push, pull, twist, and flick of any interior control has a defined, well-weighted action that bespeaks quality. Nothing rings cheap or feels hollow in this interior. You'd think that Audi casts their buttons and switches out of granite, so satisfying is the tangible heft of all the controls.

Passengers only get to play with the window switches, but they'll be too comfortable to care. Second-row passengers get 39 inches of leg room. Those seated in the outboard positions can manually adjust the forward/aft position of the seat as well as the recline. The massive side-door glass will put even the worst claustrophobics at ease.

There's a standard-issue third row, but adults would do better to stick to the front two. The scant 29.2 inches of leg room afforded by the way-back will leave even shorter folks with their knees in their mouth.

Final thoughts. The 2020 Audi Q7 is a veritable Q-ship. It's big but not absurdly so, feeling much more manageable than the gilded school bus that is a BMW X7 or Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class. It's undoubtedly luxurious, yet it isn't saddled by the shocking sticker prices worn by some opulent SUVs. And its available turbo V6 has enough grunt so to never feel taxed (never mind the thunderous V8 on the SQ7).

Indeed, it's hard to find fault with this big Audi. We noted the lackluster base engine and the prodigious thirst of the new V6. But between the top-notch interior, seamless technology, and stoic demeanor, the Q7 is a convincing choice in the cutthroat segment.
