Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Based on the BMW X7 SUV,Turbocharged V8 makes 612 horsepower.Retuned suspension.

PROS
Thundering acceleration
Impressive array of advanced driver aids
Exclusivity of the Alpina badge

CONS
Not enough differentiation from the BMW X7
Interior is cluttered with buttons
Ride quality can suffer on less than perfect roads

The Alpina XB7 is as fast as it is luxurious and as practical as it is well equipped. The trouble is the same is true of the closely related BMW X7 M50i, which is significantly cheaper.

PROS
Hugely fast
Very spacious and practical
Outstanding infotainment system

CONS
Too similar to an X7 M50i
Much more expensive than the M50i
A lot of road noise

By: 
whatcar.com

PROS
Big, refined power;
understated design;
Decent ride comfort,
even on big wheels.

CONS
Awfully big and thirsty,
unsettling stability-control interventions,
priced for exclusivity.

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.

The 2021 Audi SQ7 comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.A heated steering wheel is now standard.Executive package now includes more leather surfaces.

PROS
Twin-turbo 500-hp V8 moves the SQ7 with authority
Four-wheel steering keeps the big SUV feeling nimble
48-volt hybrid system provides added acceleration from a standstill

CONS
Cramped third-row seats
Infotainment system can be distracting to use
