2017 Audi Q7: Utility of the Year Contender

Of all the premium brands on the market, Audi has, at least until this point, kept things pretty simple when it comes to its crossovers and SUVs.

With three choices available, the 2017 Audi Q7 finds itself on top, looming large over its smaller siblings in more ways than one. Comparatively speaking, this latest version looks much smaller than before, though its dimensions are virtually identical. This is still a behemoth, but the new design makes the Q7 look far less bloated.

With its aluminum-intensive construction, the Q7ís size isnít quite as noticeable as before. Some 474 lb (215 kg) was removed from its curb weight in this, its second generation, which isnít quite as substantial as the weight loss plan by another 2017 Utility of the Year contender, the 2017 GMC Acadia, but itís still an impressive feat.

That reduction in weight deserves most of the credit for the Q7ís newfound driving dynamics, which are vastly improved. Its platform-mate, the Porsche Cayenne, is still king when it comes to fun-to-drive full-size sport utilities, but this Audi can scratch the itch when called upon. Itís surprisingly agile for an SUV that stretches 199.6 inches (5,070 millimeters) from bumper to bumper, though all 4,938 lb (2,240 kg) of its curb weight with the V6 under the hood can certainly be felt through fast corners.
