7-passenger luxury SUV. A luxury SUV should look as elegant and as
sophisticated as possible. And the Q7 is one great looking machine. From
the front you will notice Audi's beautiful and massive front grill. Also
the LED headlights and running lights make quite a visual statement.

torque. This engine also nets 17 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway
which is at the top of the fuel economy scale for luxury SUVs. The other
engine choice is a supercharged 3.0 liter V-6 engine making 333 horsepower and 325 lb-ft. of
torque on the S-Line model. Power is transferred through an 8-speed
automatic transmission which helps with fuel economy. This engine with more
HP gets 16 MPG in the city and 22 MPG on the highway.
The Q7 is also a capable vehicle off road or in tough weather conditions.
The Quattro all-wheel drive system paired with many sophisticated
technological advancements give the Q7 a real leg up on the competition. On
the inside the Audi Q7 can seat up to 7 passengers. The Q7 is loaded with
everything you would expect in a high end luxury SUV from Audi.

Audi A8 saloon review - CarBuyer
Read the full review here:
It doesn't matter if you're looking for a car to drive, or to be driven in,
the A8 is thoroughly impressive in both areas. It packs a host of clever
technology to make the driving experience as seamless as possible,
including lights that are connected to the sat-nav and will illuminate
junctions, bend round corners and even dip when they sense oncoming
traffic. A system called Audi Drive Select also features, and allows
drivers to tweak the steering, suspension and gearbox to make the car more
sporty or more comfortable. The cabin itself is finished in high-grade
materials and is very logically laid out. Customers looking for a bit more
space to stretch out in the rear can opt for the long wheelbase version.
