2021 Audi Q7 Review – After a thorough refresh for the 2020 model year, the Audi Q7 2021 will be delivered with a few changes. Blind-spot monitoring with rear traffic warning is now standard and the Comfort Premium model package now includes a heated steering wheel and a 360-degree external camera system.
The middle-class Premium Plus receives an optional executive plan that combines the contents of the 2020 models for cold weather, warm weather, and driver assistance packages. The Prestige model is now equipped with leather-covered armrests and a center console as well as heated rear seats as standard.
Engine, Transmission, and Power
For 2020, Audi keeps the old 248hp, four-cylinder turbo engine, but adds a new supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 that uses a 48-volt hybrid system to produce 335hp, and those powertrains become carried over to 2021.
When we tested the 2020 Q7 with the new V-6 turbo, we drove a quick 5.0 seconds from zero to 100 mph, which is slightly faster than the mechanically similar two-row Q8 SUV. If the Audi Q7 2021 is equipped with optional performance tires on 21-inch wheels, it feels flat and supple, like an inflated sports car, despite its enormous size.
Optional air suspension settings, coupled with the additional agility of the all-wheel steering, make the Q7 a surprisingly pleasant drive-through winding back road. It also runs pretty smoothly.

Audi Q7 interior
With a minimalist and contemporary design combined with a lot of technology as well as comfort and excellent workmanship, a Q7 cabin is a special place. Beautiful materials and design accentuate the interior of the Q7, as does its clever arrangement of controls and comfortable seats with plenty of support and adjustment.
The entry-level Premium is well-equipped, and the number of high-end features can get quite luxurious with higher trim levels. As with most three-row SUVs, there isn’t much cargo space in the Audi cargo space when all the seats are occupied.
But it has about the same amount of space as its main competitor, and the back row can be quickly raised or lowered using the power controls, which makes it a bit awkward to operate in the middle row. With all the seats stowed, the Q7 2019 offers space for our 25 pieces of hand luggage, a result that we will likely match the model in Audi Q7 2021.
Audi Q7 Boot Space Dimensions
The size of the width of 1970 millimeters corresponds to the width of the Audi Q7 2021 without exterior mirrors and the value is 2212 millimeters with the mirrors open. The luggage capacity with 5 seats varies between 770 and 865 liters depending on whether there is a third row of seats or not.Motorization: mild diesel hybrid, mild petrol hybrid, and petrol plug-in hybrid. The plug-in hybrid model is called Q7 TFSIe and has a trunk volume of 650* liters. Due to its size, equipment, ground clearance of 21 cm, and length of 5,063 mm, we place the Audi Q7 in the category of large SUV and 4×4 vehicles.
Do all Q7 have 7 seats?
All Q7 models have seven seats, and the second-row seats can slide and recline individually. The middle seat is thinner than the other two but still a decent size for adults to sit in comfortably.
How big is the boot on an Audi Q7?
Audi Q7 offers a luggage space of 330 liters. Lower the rear seat and fold it flat against the trunk floor, it will free up 775 liters, while you can enjoy 2,035 liters of luggage space if you also fold the middle row.
Infotainment and Connectivity
The Audi q7 2021 comes standard with a 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen, and a smaller 8.6-inch screen sits underneath to adjust the climate control and vehicle settings. Depending on whether you enjoy using the touchscreen while driving or not, you may find the new system funny or uncomfortable.
Our workforce is divided, but Audi is busy adding this new infotainment system to its product range. it can be found in the sedans A6, A7, and A8 as well as in the SUV Q8. All AQ7 models 2021 also have a digital measurement display in the virtual cockpit, 4G LTE WiFi, and the integration of Apple CarPlay / Android Auto. Audiophiles can enjoy multiple audio options, crowned by a Bang & Olufsen system with 23 speakers and 1920 watts of juice.
