It may be starting to pick up a bit now, but this second-generation Audi Q7 is still one of our favorite family cars out there. And while it’s quite expensive, we don’t think there’s a better way to transport seven people at once, if you can stretch out. For starters, it’s extremely comfortable thanks to the standard air suspension; then there’s the fact that all five rear seats have Isofix points. And if you need to transport adults, even the back row has plenty of room. The mild hybrid engines are impressively economical for the power they put out, and the comfortable, quiet cockpit is beautifully finished. And in the context of similarly sized luxury SUVs, the Q7 doesn’t look bad actually, it comes out a lot cheaper than a BMW X7 or a Volvo XC90. What’s not to like?
Price from: £60,570
Our favorite version: Q7 S-Line 45 TDI Quattro, £63,720
Must know: Don’t be tempted to go beyond the S-Line; the more expensive Black Edition and the huge wheels from Vorsprung make them less of a ride, and the latter in particular is very expensive to buy.
