This last week I had the privilege of testing the new Audi Q7. It’s hard to say who was more disappointed I had to actually return the car: me or Naomi and the boys.
I’m generally not a car guy, but this Q7 was amazing. It’s built with as much athleticism as LeBron James. The Q7 is flanked with a V6 engine that helps you dominate the road with ease and efficiency and is equipped with Audi’s game-changing pre sense city system that can detect vehicles and pedestrians and can even initiate pre or partial braking to help minimize collisions. If that wasn’t enough to demonstrate that the Q7 exceeds the hype, its MMI® navigation system has voice control and an all-in-one touch with handwriting-recognition technology. See what I mean about athleticism—power, agility and control.
But more than anything, I judge a car by how it serves my family. Any family car we have has to be able to seat more than 5, the Q7 comfortably seats 7. And even better, the the third row flexes down to leave enough room for them to play around in—a necessary thing when we are waiting between baseball games or other events. Naomi was particularly fond of the smartphone integration that allowed her to play DJ between music and audio books. The boys loved the built in wi-fi of course. I loved the virtual cockpit and the top view camera that gave me extra eyes and senses while driving the family around.
As evident by the sad faces and sighs when the car left our garage, the Q7 met our family criteria and needs with high marks. My boys wanted to know when we were getting one for keeps. Gulp!
