Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Audi SQ7 is a seriously fast version of the seven-seat Q7 SUV but, while it has the pace to match some hot-hatches, it doesn’t feel all that dramatic to drive and it is very expensive.

Pros
Very practical interior
Decent standard kit
Faster than some sports cars

Cons
Diesel engine lacks drama
Alternatives are more fun to drive
Cheaper Q7 TDI makes more sense

The SQ7 is a new addition to the Q7 lineup for 2020. It's been available in Europe for a few years, but only with a diesel engine, which we won't get in the U.S.The Audi Q7 will soon be available in high-performance form for the first time in the U.S. Called the SQ7, this variant of the mid-size luxury SUV comes with a significantly more powerful engine than the Q7 and also has a beefed-up suspension and slightly more aggressive looks. With 500 horsepower from its V-8 engine, it will compete with the BMW X5 M and Mercedes-AMG GLE-class.

With a sumptuously appointed and whisper-quiet cabin, the 2021 GV80 is exactly the flagship SUV the Genesis brand needs to be taken seriously by American consumers.

Pros
Lovely interior ambience,
standard high-tech features,
agile handling.

Cons
Cramped third-row passenger space,
no diesel engine for the U.S.,
heavily weighted steering feel.

Genesis' first SUV, the 2021 GV80, launches on a new platform shared with the new 2021 G80 midsize sedan. Behind the GV80's polarizing mug are new engines that put the power down with RWD or AWD.

Pros
Opulent interior
Comfortable ride
Generous standard equipment

Cons
Cramped optional third row
