Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Audi Q7 gets a rakish new sport-wagon look, a finely detailed, tech-savvy interior, and serious chassis advancements underneath—including a dramatic weight loss, available rear-wheel steering, and a plug-in hybrid version.
Most models with a third row really put a damper on most kinds of driving enjoyment, whether that be zigzagging through tightly mountain-road esses, or just maneuvering through the parking lot of your local supermarket.

Pros
Sportier, more carlike look and feel
Finely detailed cabin
Innovative rear-wheel steering
Weight loss and better mpg

Cons
Best tech features limited to top trim
Third row not all that usable
Potentially very expensive

The 2017 Audi Q7 ranks 4 out of 21 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The completely redesigned 2017 Audi Q7 scores well in the very competitive luxury midsize SUV class. In particular, its combination of interior quality, passenger and cargo space, and performance stand out. Each of these are important considerations for shoppers in this segment.

Pros
Potent V6 engine
Nimble handling
Luxurious interior

Cons
Less cargo room than rivals

By:

Few three-row luxury crossovers are as desirable as the fully redesigned 2017 Audi Q7. Thanks to a supremely comfortable cabin, a powerful V6 engine and the latest high-tech features, the Q7 delivers capability and elegance in a package that'll make you feel as if you've arrived.
After a one-year hiatus, the Audi Q7 is back and fully redesigned for 2017. Highlights include revised styling, a roomier interior, new technology features, improved fuel economy and a new four-cylinder turbocharged engine.

pros
Plenty of the latest safety features and driving aids
Powerful supercharged V6 engine
First-class cabin comfort with vault-like quietness
Excellent IIHS safety scores

cons
Limited cargo space compared to most other midsize SUVs

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L is unranked in Midsize SUVs due to missing safety data. Currently, the Jeep Grand Cherokee L's overall score is not available, though its Critics' Rating, Performance score, and Interior score are based on our evaluation of 8 pieces of research and data.

Pros
Impressive off-road ability
Cushioned ride
Well-crafted interior
Roomy, comfortable seats in all three rows

Cons
Some rivals are more agile

By: 
usnews.com

The Grand Cherokee L is all-new for 2021.Three rows of seating.Interior filled with modern, premium touches and tech features.Kicks off the fifth Grand Cherokee generation for 2021.

Pros
Impressive list of standard and optional advanced driver aids
Unibody construction brings much-needed refinement
Handsome interior design
Better off-road capability than most SUVs

Cons
Base V6 engine provides underwhelming acceleration

By: 
edmunds.com

This year marks the beginning of a new generation of Grand Cherokee with the arrival of the three-row L model. It makes its debut before the updated two-row Grand Cherokee (reviewed separately), which will switch to this new design for 2022. A 4Xe plug-in hybrid model is likely coming for the 2022 model year.

Pros
Deluxe cabin environs,
plenty of off-road capability,
room for up to seven riders.

Cons
Base V-6 not as refined as optional V-8,
awkward proportions on smaller diameter wheels,
most desirable models are pricey.
