2019 Audi Q7 Specs, Release Dates, Prices

The 2019 Audi Q7 is the flagship SUV from the German luxury brand. A three-row passenger carrier that competes with the BMW X5, Acura MDX and Infiniti QX60. Redesigned two years ago, Q7 entered its second generation as a lighter and more sophisticated luxury vehicle.

Audi’s largest crossover SUV stands out with its dynamic driving characteristics and advanced technology that boasts everything from smart safety features to semi-autonomous driving aids. Of course, you won’t find a giant V8 engine under the hood or spacious room in the third-row, but if you want a luxury SUV with a sleek design, standard all-wheel drive and advanced technology, the 2019 Audi Q7 should be on your list.

The 2019 Audi Q7 is a three-row SUV available in three trim levels: Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige. It’s no surprise that the base Q7 Premium is well-equipped. Standard features include a panoramic sunroof, a power tailgate, 3-zone climate control, heated front seats, leather interior, power-folding 3rd-row seat, 7-inch center display, MMI Navigation Plus, Bluetooth streaming, a 10-speaker radio with USB/SD card inputs, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Standard safety features include Audi pre sense and pre sense city, which monitor traffic and watch for pedestrians. If a collision appears imminent, the car will warn the driver and apply the brakes on its own.

Engine Specs

The 2019 Audi Q7 available in two different engines. The base engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. It’s only available in the Premium or Premium Plus trim. While not so fast, this engine can move the Q7 to 60 mph in 7 seconds. The upgraded supercharged 3.0-liter V6 is more to our liking. It produces excellent power with 329 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque available as low as 2,900 rpm. With this engine, the Q7 can rush to 60 mph in quick 5.7 seconds and has plentiful power for high-speed passing maneuvers.

Both engines are connected with an eight-speed automatic transmission and standard Quattro all-wheel-drive system. The four-cylinder Audi Q7 can tow up to 4,400 pounds, and the 3.0-liter V6 can tow as much as 7,700 pounds. That above average for the class.
