HERNDON, VA – March 20, 2019 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The 2019 Audi Q7 has been named “Best Luxury 3-Row SUV for Families” by U.S. News & World Report, with judges citing the vehicle’s family-friendly features as a key factor.
U.S. News & World Report determines its annual “Best Cars for Families” awards by considering a combination of professional automotive reviews, safety and reliability ratings, seating and cargo volume and the availability of family-friendly features. Within each of the 11 automotive classes covered by the awards, the vehicle with the highest composite score is named the Best Car for Families in its respective model category.
“Two things put the Q7 ahead of the competition: the fact that its backseat is larger than most and the “Good” rating from IIHS for its LATCH connectors. Both may seem rather basic, but they are the two areas where the competition faltered,” said Jamie Page Deaton, executive editor, U.S. News & World Report. “When you also add in the excellent reviews the Q7 earned from the automotive press, as well as available family-friendly features like rear seat USB ports, a 360-degree camera system, a hands free lift gate and rear sunshades, it’s clear the Q7 is the best choice for families who want an SUV without compromise.”
The 2019 Audi Q7 continues to set a benchmark in the luxury 7-seat SUV segment, offering exceptional driving dynamics, available advanced driver assistance systems and innovative technology and connectivity solutions. Standard equipped with quattro® all-wheel drive, the Q7 has a powerful and distinctive presence on the road with taut design lines, standard xenon plus headlights and LED taillights and an available towing capacity of an impressive 7,700 pounds for the six-cylinder Q7 and 4,400 for the four-cylinder model. The interior of the Q7 represents the high standard set by Audi for its premium comfort and the brand’s signature fit and finish, with features including available Bang & Olufsen® 3D Advanced Sound System that delivers an impressive, life-like musical experience through 23 speakers.
The Q7 integrates benchmark technologies including standard Audi smartphone interface, which provides Apple CarPlay® and Google™ Android Auto for compatible mobile devices, available full color head-up display, standard Audi MMI Navigation plus with MMI® all-in touch and available Audi phone box with wireless charging and signal booster.
