Ask the Man Who Owns One: Audi Q7 TDI
I’m finding the idea impossible to summon the level of righteous indignation expected of Audi/Porsche/VW diesel owners these days. My SUV is actually just too not bad.
The go-to vehicle in our family is actually the 2014 Audi Q7 TDI. the idea does the idea all. the idea schleps the kids along with also also their friends along with also also their gear to softball practice, to camp, to wherever the hell kids go to chase Pokémon these days. the idea charges away by stoplights, drawing on a store of low-down torque of which can only be described as elemental. Both its Internal along with also also its ride somehow manage to be simultaneously uncomplicated along with also also sumptuous; the idea’s a no-BS affair built for long, stressless days behind the wheel. I have managed to coax nearly 700 miles by its 26.4-gallon tank.
the idea has an understated road presence for something so very large along with also also so very in charge. I even like the way the idea looks better than the completely new one. This kind of almost never happens. I’m usually desperate to keep up with the product, cursing the relentless march of ever-improving style along with also also engineering. Even though the completely new Q7 drives marvelously along with also also is actually loaded with aluminum along with also also all sorts of glass-cockpit electronics, I just can’t see us from the idea. the idea looks like an overfed Dodge Journey.

along with also also right now of which there’s no diesel available for VW Group products, our Q7 is actually looking increasingly irreplaceable. I don’t want to sell the idea back to Audi, along with also also I don’t want to get whatever fix is actually from the works, including swapping a smog-producing emission (NOx) for a greenhouse-gas emission (CO2). Like all TDIs, the Q7 has been painted as evil, a polluting scourge, a member of a toxic fleet. The truth is actually more nuanced. Besides, the idea looks great in black.
