Minimalism and simplicity are a theme with the 2022 Audi Q7 interior cabin as it improves on comfortability and layout. The base models already come with a decent number of amenities such as leather seat covers and heating for the front seats. They also come with high-gloss Gray Oak Wood inlays that help to sell the feeling of a luxurious cabin. Passenger capacity is enough for 7 passengers with ample room in the front and middle. The rear seats can be a tighter squeeze for larger-bodied persons. For cargo capacity, the Q7 has 14.2 cubic feet of space with all rows laid out. It rises to 35.7 cubic feet with the 3rd row folded and 69.6 with the 2nd row stowed away.


For the infotainment suite, drivers will find a standard 10.1-inch MMI touchscreen display with an additional smaller screen sized up to 8.6-inches. The Audi Smartphone Interface allows drivers to connect with their devices through Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Bluetooth features are also available on all models. A free 6-month trial to the Audi connect PRIME and Audi Connect PLUS online services suite is also available. These allow drivers to access a built-in navigation system, real-time traffic data, Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities, and other voice control features. There’s also a 3-month subscription to the SIRIUS Satellite Radio System which allows access to their network.


Although there’s no official review of the safety and driver-assistive features of the Audi Q7 from the NHTSA, we do know what features are present within its built-in safety suite. Some examples include Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Assist, Vehicle Exit Warnings, High-Beam Assist, and the Audi pre sense suite which comes with belt tightening and Automated Window/Door closure. Higher-end models get features such as Traffic Sign Recognition, Adaptive Cruise Control, a Top View Camera System, and an Active Lane Assist with Emergency Assists.


The Audi Q7 has the same warranty packaged offered with the rest of their product line. When compared with the offerings of other manufacturers, most will find that the terms and benefits are similar to each other. They offer both a Limited and Powertrain Warranty plan that spans for 4 years or the first 50,000 miles driven, whichever comes first. The company has yet to offer any perk or package that includes complimentary scheduled maintenance as a service.
