The Audi Q7 is a sophisticated three-row crossover SUV that can haul families in style and comfort. It got a major update last year, and for 2021 gets more standard safety equipment, and a revamped infotainment system with new touchscreens that are big and bright. The new system is faster and has more features and more frequent updates.
The 2020 Audi Q7 earned “Good” marks in all the IIHS tests, and its standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection was called “Superior.”
For 2021 the Q7 adds more standard safety features, including active lane control, blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beams, and a driver-attention monitor that can slow the Q7 to a stop and turn on hazards if the driver becomes unresponsive. Optional safety features include a surround-view camera system, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, and traffic jam assist that provides brief periods of hands-free driving in slow traffic up to 40 mph.
