Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

A heated steering wheel is now standard. And if you opt for the Executive package on the Premium Plus trim, additional leather trim is now included.We would choose the more expensive Prestige trim so that we can get the SQ7’s $5900 S Sport package, which adds desirable performance enhancements such as a sport rear differential and Audi’s Active Roll Stabilization system. This brings the SQ7’s price close to six figures, but the extras are well worth the money.

Pros
Impressively quick acceleration,
athletic chassis,
high-end cabin with room for seven.

Cons
Isn't particularly fuel efficient,
options quickly escalate to a six-figure price tag,
all-digital dash layout may irk some drivers.
