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

By:

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.

The SQ7 is new for 2020.Kicks off the first SQ7 generation.

Pros

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
Less cargo space than most competitors
