Proudly Serving Farmington Hills, MI

When the time comes to start shopping for a new midsize luxury crossover SUV, you cannot go wrong with the selection of the Audi Q7. While the Q7 has been an option for Farmington Hills drivers for many years, the dramatically-updated second generation was released in 2016. This generation brought industry innovations to the general public, such as predictive efficiency assistance, turning assistance and exit warning assistance. These innovations carry forward to the 2017 and 2018 Audi Q7 model years. If you are trying to decide whether to buy the 2017 Q7 or the 2018 model, it is important to understand that there are no significant changes between these two model years. They both are well-equipped and have exquisite style that you may love.

Performance

The Q7 has been known for its impressive on-the-road capabilities since its inception, but there have been a few engine and mechanical refinements over the years. The 2017 and 2018 model years have the same engine options and same overall performance capabilities. The base trim level is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo, four-cylinder design that offers 273 foot-pounds of torque with 252 horsepower. Multiple other options are available, including a 3.0-liter turbo, V6 engine. This is an all-wheel drive design with an eight-speed auto transmission with Tiptronic technology. Alloy wheels with anti-lock brakes are standard equipment for both model years as well.

Appearance

The interior and exterior of the Audi Q7 for 2017 and 2018 are also unchanged. They both have the same overall design and functionality. The exterior features an elongated hexagonal grille flanked by extended LED headlights. The prominent front end fades gracefully to the rear, and contoured side panels add to the appeal. The interior design is stunning with a gorgeous dashboard and refined leather seats. A pop-up touchscreen display is integrated into the dashboard, and the sound system and climate controls have a subtle, minimalistic appearance that creates a clean look. Multiple interior and exterior color options are available to choose from, and some interiors have either a metallic or wood-grained accent.

Features

When you get to know more about the exceptional features loaded into both model years for the Q7, you will discover that this luxury SUV has all of the features that you need to feel pampered behind the wheel. The leather steering wheel has controls for audio and cruise control on it, and some trim levels come with a sports steering wheel and a heating element. Dual-zone climate control facilitates the comfort of all passengers in the vehicle. Both model years also come with a premium sound system, power-adjusted side mirrors, a port for a rear entertainment system, a CD player, power locks and windows and more. The vehicles are both well-designed from a safety standpoint as well, and they have received a four-star or five-star safety rating in all of the categories that they were tested for. You will notice that they both have standard safety features, such as airbags and child safety features. They also have more advanced and innovative features, such as a backup camera and safety sensors.
