Audi Q7 Leasing
Audi's Q7 seven-seat luxury SUV is still big - but now it's clever too. This second generation model is much improved.
The second generation Audi Q7 is a leaner proposition than its predecessor , delivering some pin-sharp engines and offering more space inside.
Why Would You Want One?
Well, the car is significantly smaller, lighter and more agile but, thanks to smarter packaging, it’s bigger in the passenger cell. Plus the MK2 model Q7 offers efficiency measures that are night and day better than its Panzer-like predecessor. Even the shape has subtly morphed into something more estate car-like. A Q7 business lease suddenly looks a clever choice.
Give Me the Key Details...
The previous version of the Q7 was so big and lumbering that encouraging drivers to make it go faster would have been a recipe for disaster. But this car doesn't go down that road - it's a far nimbler thing. That tells in Audi's engine selection too. Most customers choose one of the efficient turbocharged 3.0-litre TDI units, these developing either 218 or 272PS. The alternative is an etron plug-in hybrid version that mates an electric motor with a diesel TDI V6. Or a flagship SQ7 model that uses a 4.0-litre V8 TDI diesel.
The amount of room available for passengers is still vast, with an extra 21mm of kneeroom this time round in the second row. Even the third row gets more space, with 24mm more headroom and an additional 20mm of shoulder width. This third row of seats are electrically operated, popping up from the boot floor at the flick of a switch. With all seven seats occupied, you still get 295-litres of boot space.
The Bottom Line
It'll be interesting to see whether the Q7's blend of talents can convince a market where many buyers choose according to predetermined brand loyalty. Can it bring customers back to a model that was never a front-runner? We wouldn't bet against it. Audi Q7 leasing never used to make much sense but in MK2 model form, this luxury 7-seat SUV has turned from a blunt implement to one of the sharpest vehicles in its sector. Who knows, it might even have pioneered a new niche on the sly. In short, a Q7 lease now makes sense. We can't help but have a sneaking admiration for what Audi has done here.
