The 2019 Audi Q7 comes very well-equipped in its standard Premium trim, but those who shell out for the top-tier Prestige will be rewarded with near-Bentley levels of quality and features. However, its warranty is average in its class, and it’s not as strong a value as the mid-size Q5.
As such, we give it 8 out of 10 in this category. (Read more about how we rate cars.)
Starting at $53,545 (including $995 destination charge), the Q7 Premium includes impressive standard features, such as satellite navigation, Bluetooth, leather and wood trim, heated and power-adjustable front seats, a panoramic moonroof, power-folding third row seats, and automatic emergency braking with forward-collision warnings.
A 7.0-inch infotainment system is standard, but the Virtual Cockpit system is not available on Premium Q7s.
The Premium Plus trim represents the best value in the lineup, especially with Virtual Cockpit and other desirable features like the superior LED headlights now included as standard. If you’re willing to step up to the V-6 as well, you won’t be disappointed. Other standard Premium Plus features include LED interior lighting, Bose speakers, and a power-adjustable steering column, while additional active safety features and an impressive Bang & Olufsen speaker system is also available. Cooled front seats are available on the Warm Weather package, while the Cold Weather package includes heated rear seats and steering wheel.
The top-tier Prestige trim adds over $12,000 to the base price, but includes 20-inch wheels, automatic door closers, and many other features, while the optional Luxury package adds upgraded leather, massaging and cooled front seats, and an Alcantara headliner. Air suspension is available at an extra cost and noticeably improves the already-impressive ride quality. All-in, a loaded Q7 Prestige is nearly $90,000 but feels worth every penny.
