    Audi Q7

    The Q7 is Audi's take on the big off-roader and it's their first real go at something that can actually go off-road. It squares up against the Porsche Cayenne, BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz ML by being bigger than all of them in terms of length, wheelbase and width. It's also more powerful than its rivals when compared model for model.

    As a fast, practical and beautifully appointed SUV the Q7 is hard to criticise...


    ....but IMO this car is a prime example of where audi are going wrong right now, big, brash Americanised and ugly as hell...pointless car... uncool IMO!

    4x4s aren't the type of motor I go for these days. Saying that tho if I was in the market for 1 & could afford a Q7 i'd def have a test drive Along with X5 & Range Rover

    I do also like the look of the huge American style 4x4s. Guy over the road has got a Ford F150 Lightening. It makes me drool every time he starts it up

    Hear hear
    Drug dealer chic is where Audi are at.
    Big wheels,dark windows.
    Bleeeurgh.
    My near neighbour's Q7 has to have one of the most horrible sounding engines I've ever heard.
    It sounds like a massive vacuum cleaner,sucking in the atmosphere as it goes past.
    Deeply unpleasant.

    Saw a white Q7 today, not to my tastes, it'd have to be a black one.

    The Q7 is a comprehensive disaster for Audi IMO. It's ugly, pointlessly expensive, adds nothing new to the 4x4/SUV segment and arrives late into a market that people are starting to shun in their droves. You can pick up a four year-old Cayenne now for 20k such is the popularity of SUVs.

    It's a very obvious attempt to steal sales from the BMW X5 which has been selling for years now. The automotive equivalent of obese. Shocking.

    Its a monster of a 4x4. I'm not much of a fan for 4x4s but I still prefer the Range Rover.

    It also arrived pretty late into the market. Never follow(?). I don't think so.

    IMO the 4X4 should be left upto the Land Rover/ Rand rover as they have been making the 4X4's for many years and have never gone wrong in looks and practability there for they are the dominantes and will be for years to come.
