As one of Audi’s range-topping SUVs, the SQ7’s design has to stand out from the crowd, and it certainly manages that. Adopting the brand’s latest ‘Q’ design language, the SQ7’s large vertical bars in the grille give the model plenty of presence, aided by the show-stopping LED lights at both the front and rear.
And despite the SQ7’s sporty focus, it manages to lose none of the practicality of the regular Q7 – still offering vast amounts of interior space, as well as seven seats as standard.
There are two different exterior looks to choose from with the SQ7, depending on what kind of look you’re going for. The Black Edition offers an Anthracite Black Styling Package and 22 inch Audi Sport alloy wheels.
But if you want a bolder look, the Vorsprung version is undoubtedly the way to go. Gaining a panoramic sunroof and Carbon exterior door mirror. Sitting on 22-inch Audi Sport alloy wheels the Vorsprung looks much more aggressive in terms of design.
If you want the most technology from your SQ7, it has to be the Vorsprung that is the way to go. Including features like a 19-speaker Bose sound system that delivers a total output of 558 watts, a head-up display and a suite of driver assistance technology – including Adaptive Cruise Assist and Front and Rear Cross Traffic Assist – it leaves you wanting for nothing else.
That said, all SQ7s deliver on the technology front, with a 12.3-inch Audi Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster included, along with twin MMI displays – a larger 10.1-inch HD screen handling traditional media displays while a lower 8.6-inch HD screen looks after the climate settings.
Engines & Performance
The SQ7 is well-known for its particularly capable diesel engines, but since 2021, Audi has offered this performance SUV with a petrol unit instead.
It adopts a well-proven 4.0-litre biturbo unit that produces a huge 500bhp – 71bhp more than the previous diesel model – and 770Nm of torque. The engine is paired with an eight-speed tiptronic automatic transmission and quattro permanent all-wheel-drive, while also benefiting from various performance features – not least all-wheel-steering and a sports adaptive suspension setup.
Despite the size of the SQ7, its performance statistics are capable of offering figures that wouldn’t look out of place on a two-seat sports car. Accelerating from 0-60mph in this Audi will take just 4.1 seconds, with its top speed being electronically limited to 155mph, where those kinds of speeds are permitted.
It should come as no surprise that a big petrol V8 SUV isn’t the most efficient on the market, with Audi claiming a fuel economy figure of 23.2mpg, along with CO2 emissions of 277g/km.
All vehicles are tested according to WLTP technical procedures. Figures shown are for comparability purposes; only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and equivalent electric range figures with other vehicles tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles, vehicle load (and, for battery electric vehicles, the starting charge of the battery).
