Kelley Blue Book Reserves Special Praise for the 2018 Audi Q7

A stratospheric 9.5 out of 10 overall rating seemed only the beginning. KBB lauded the new 2018 Q7 from Audi as one to "nail the list" of what drivers from San Francisco to nearby San Mateo and the Bay Area, CA could hope to find in a new luxury mid-size SUV. But beyond the three-row, seven-passenger trifecta of standard quattro® all-wheel drive, a zero-to-60 mph time of a blistering 5.7 seconds, and the stellar ability to tow up to 7,700 pounds when properly equipped, the auto research expert found even a few more standout favorite features to appreciate.

For one, Kelley Blue Book found the available Audi virtual cockpit in 2018 Q7 "like something out of the future." To wit, in place of an analog gauge cluster, you'll find a fully digital instrument display spanning a huge 12.3 inches, fully and custom configurable to display important navigation, Google Earth, and audio information in a choice of two modes, classic and infotainment. It's even connected to the Web via in-vehicle 4G LTE, and factoring in a sprawling 8.3-inch infotainment system in upper Q7 trim levels, staying in touch on the go is easier and more streamlined than ever.

The car and truck valuation experts also found much to appreciate in features like those in the Q7 Prestige Adaptive Chassis Package, not in the least among them the SUV's Adaptive Air Suspension, a step up over the redesigned lightweight five-link standard. The system provides not only a 2.4-inch ride height increase for overcoming diverse terrain. It also allows clearance lowering for drag reduction during highway cruising and enables four-wheel steering for a tight high-speed turning radius, making the SUV as sporty as it is rugged.
