2013 Audi Q7 Overview
The 2013 Audi Q7 is a three-row luxury SUV that seats up to seven passengers that it will deliver to any destination in comfort and style.
Styling on the 2013 Q7 may appear familiar since it shares much of its styling with the smaller Q5. It’s large, sleek, and symmetrical, a larger application of Audi’s trademark designs. 18” alloy wheels are standard while 21” alloys are optional. The Q7 also features halogen headlights with accompanying fog lights, LED taillights, powered and heated side mirrors, roof rails, and a power tailgate as standard. Options include adaptive xenon headlights, running boards, headlamp washers, and a muscled body-kit package from Audi’s S-line.
The interior of the 2013 Q7 is as expected of an Audi: beautiful and functional. The leather, wood, and aluminum trim are stitched and fastened together with the utmost care and precision; buttons and knobs all seem to be right where they belong. The Q7 can hold seven adults in respectable levels of comfort. The standard leather bucket seats are heated and power-operated, but seat ventilation can be ordered as well. In addition, climate control, a tilt/telescoping multifunction steering wheel, a 40/20/40 rear folding bench, an 11-speaker sound system, and Bluetooth/iPod connectivity are all standard. Interior options include satellite navigation, a premium Bang & Olufsen sound system, and a rear-seat entertainment system.
The 2013 Audi Q7 comes with a choice of three engines, all mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The base engine is a 280-horsepower, supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 with 295 pounds-feet of torque. This engine is good for 16/22 mpg city/highway. The next engine is a 333-horsepower, supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with 325 pounds-feet of torque. This is the sporty engine of the group, lowering the 0-60 MPH to around 6.9 seconds while still offering efficiency numbers identical to the base engine; there are no real downsides minus the added cost. Lastly, comes a diesel option: a 240-horsepower, turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 diesel that makes 406 pounds-feet of torque. This engine offers the best fuel economy along with massive torque, 19/28 mpg city/highway.
When it comes to safety, the 2013 Q7 comes standard with six airbags, traction/stability control, and huge ABS disc brakes with braking aids. Safety options include Audi Side Assist, adaptive cruise control, and rear side-impact airbags.
