The new 2011 Audi Q7 TDI dispels any notions that diesel cars are weaker than their traditional counterparts, according to a review by Motor Trend. It's a clean, smooth ride that offers drivers fantastic torque and even greater comfort.
With an eight-speed automatic transmission, the TDI got an upgrade in 2011. Its engine is still the same, but that's a plus, says the magazine.
The interior consists your typical Audi-style comforts such as a simple and elegant layout with seats that "feel like La-Z-Boys," as reported by one staffer. The glove box is a little confusing if you don't know what you're looking for, but once you find the button next to the MMI screen, it's a cakewalk.
For mileage, the city/highway rate is 17 and 25, not too bad for an SUV, but it could be better. The fuel range is impressive, however, with 660 miles on its belt.
Motor Trend concludes their review on a positive note, saying, "This SUV is one you can proudly use as a carpool vehicle with even the most gossipy of neighbors, to tow your boat with, or to take to dinner."
