The Q7, a mainstay of Audi's lineup since 2007, is a three-row large SUV with seating up to 7. Having more than average horsepower for its class, the Q7 packs some oomph. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. It handles mud, snow, and sand with ease with standard all-wheel drive (AWD). Audi offers a 4-year, 50,000-mile basic/powertrain warranty on its lineup.
