2021 Audi Q7 – Review, Specs, Configurations, Prices, and Interior

2021 Audi Q7

MSRP: $54,950 - $60,800.










  • It is designed with powerful engines.
  • It provides a well-balanced ride and handling experience.
  • It has a plethora of high-tech features.
  • It has a luxurious cabin.


  • It has an inadequate cargo capacity.
  • It's a tight third row.


The 2021 Audi Q7 is positioned in the middle of the luxury midsize SUV class. It combines high-end cabin materials and many tech features with a smooth ride, engaging handling, and robust engines, but it lacks cargo and third-row space.

The Audi Q7 is available in three trim levels for 2021: Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. The performance-oriented Audi SQ7 is available in two trim levels: Premium Plus and Prestige.

Quattro all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmission are standard on all models. The Q7 and SQ7 have almost identical features, so the critical distinction is the powertrain. The Q7 is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or a 3.0-liter V6, while a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 powers the SQ7.

The Premium Plus is a safe bet regardless of whether you want the Q7 or SQ7. It comes with most of the Prestige’s features, except performance enhancements like air suspension, and it’s not much more expensive than the base Premium.

An auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather upholstery, power-folding third-row seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, a hands-free power liftgate, heated and eight-way power-adjustable front seats, proximity keyless entry, a panoramic sunroof, and alloy wheels are also included in the Premium trim.

However, a rearview camera, Audi Pre Sense Front, front and rear parking sensors, Audi Pre Sense Basic, Audi Side Assist, Audi Pre Sense Rear, and lane departure warning are all standard safety features.

The Executive kit includes ventilated, and 12-way power-adjustable front seats, heated second-row seats, power rear-window sunshades, traffic sign recognition, intersection assist, a heated steering wheel, lane keep assist, quad-zone automatic climate control, lane keep assist, and adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist, as well as traffic sign recognition, intersection assist, and adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist.

The Audi Q7, particularly the Audi SQ7, is a well-rounded luxury midsize SUV with a pillowy-soft ride, playful handling, and powerful engine options for 2021. The seats are plush, and the cabin is stocked with high-end fabrics.

 The Q7’s lowest expected reliability rating is perhaps its most significant flaw. Besides, the cargo room and fuel economy estimates are subpar.

2021 Audi Q7 Interior

What is the seating capacity?

The Audi Q7 is a seven-seater three-row crossover SUV. Leather upholstery and heated, eight-way power-adjustable seats are available for front-seat passengers. A power-folding third-row is also included.

How many Child Car Seats are there?

Three sets of LATCH car-seat connectors for the second row and two seats for the third row are included in the Q7.

Interior Quality

The interior of the 2021 Audi Q7 is adorned with opulent materials. The dashboard and armrests can be upholstered in leather, and the Q7 has a sleek feel thanks to cutting-edge technology.

Cargo Space

The 2021 Audi Q7 has 14.2 cubic feet behind the third row, 35.7 cubic feet behind the second row, and 69.6 cubic feet when both the second and third rows are folded. 

Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

Two sensitive touch screens are used in the MMI infotainment system. Both use haptic feedback (touch or vibration-based) and audio signals to indicate that your choices have been saved, but you’ll have to dig through the submenus to find some options.

The Audi Virtual Cockpit has received positive feedback from critics. It’s a digital instrument cluster that takes the place of the conventional gauge cluster. The Virtual Cockpit reduces the need to look away from the road by displaying important details such as navigation, vehicle information, environment and audio settings, and more. The whole setup appears to be elegant and uncluttered.
