2021 Audi Q7 Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

When it comes to reliability, the Germans do have a reputation for making a few of the most reliable cars on sale today. The Q7 being the premiership of Audi excels in almost every environment you can throw at it. But how is it to live with on a daily basis? Let’s find out more. 

Reliability and Ownership Costs

The Audi Q7 was awarded a total of 79 out of 100 points by J.D.Power ratings. For Quality and Reliability, the Audi Q7 scored 78 points. For driving experience, the Q7 gets an amazing score of 81 points. Audi has a wide network all over the US and even the after-sale service of the brand is unquestionable. The Audi Q7 therefore also scored 77 out of 100 points for the dealership experience. The Q7 is a full-size luxury SUV and therefore the ownership costs associated also tend to be a bit more than some of its competitors. 

The 2021 Audi Q7 will be priced almost similar to the outgoing 2020 model year. With a starting price of about $55,000, the Q7 line-up will go all the way up to $72,000. However, the price doesn't include the various other charges like destination charges, sales tax, title, and other dealer options. The actual price of the Audi Q7 for individual states might also be different as the sales taxes are different for different states. However, people from Montana, Delaware, New Hampshire, Oregon, and Alaska will surely enjoy the lowest prices as the sales taxes have been exempted from these states.

The Audi Q7 is a luxury SUV, that has been priced efficiently over the past few years. The 2015 model year received a major overhaul and was decently priced at $48,300. The year 2019 saw a major bump up in the price and pushed the starting price of the Audi Q7 from under $50,000 to $53,550 and since then, the price range has become more stable. On average, the 2021 Audi Q7 will cost around 56,000 across the US. 

The true cost of ownership for an Audi Q7, over a span of 5 years, comes out to be around $84,673, which is considerably lower than some of its competitors. Although, unlike BMW X5, Audi does not provide a free oil change for the first two years, yet, the maintenance cost of the Audi Q7 over a 5 year ownership period is about $8,280. On the other hand, the Audi Q7 does take a major blow in terms of fuel costs. With an average driving of 15,000 miles annually, the fuel costs for 5 years can go up to $15,315, which is comparatively more than others in the segment. 

Warranty

The 2021 Audi Q7 will be offered with a Limited Warranty of 4 years or 50,000 miles whichever occurs first. Although, unlike some of its competitors, Audi does not offer much on the warranty aspect for the vehicle, however, considering the reliability of the Audi Products, we can also be sure that this might not be the case to put you off.

Limited Warranty

4 Years or 50,000 miles 

Corrosion Perforation Warranty

12 Years

24 Hours Roadside Assistance

4 Years

Although the warranty schemes provided by Audi are not as lucrative as some of its other German counterparts, the Audi still is a safe choice nonetheless. Audi recommends the 10,000 miles service for their vehicles and just keeping a regular tab on the engine essentials, gives you trouble-free ownership of the Audi vehicles. 

Miles per Dollar Cost

The Maintenance and Repair cost of the Audi Q7, over a span of 5 years comes out to be around $11,962. With an estimated driving mileage of 15,000 miles annually, the miles per dollar cost of the Audi Q7 comes out to be around 6.26 miles per $1, over a span of 5 years and 75,000 miles approximately. Considering that the Q7 is a full-size luxury SUV, the miles per dollar cost of the Audi Q7 is very efficient and eerily compatible with the rivals in the segment.

2021 Audi Q7 Buying Advice

We recommend the ‘Premium Plus’ trim with the 55 TFSi engine, for the 2021 Audi Q7. The Premium Plus covers all the luxury features like Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, 360 View camera system, Audi Virtual Cockpit Assist system and Lane Departure assist system. The 55 TFSi engine also compensates for the power numbers and proves to be a good value for money. 

Is buying a used Audi Q7 a good idea?

Buying a used Audi Q7 can be a fruitful idea. According to the used car survey, a decently maintained 2017 Audi Q7 can set you back about $30,000, however, with certain discounts and dealership offers, you might be able to grab a great deal on the same. The 2017 model year is to provide you with the best value for a used Audi Q7. 

However, you can also check out the Car Indigo Used Car inventory and find some of the best deals for a well maintained Audi Q7. With few dealerships providing additional services over a used Audi Q7, it certainly proves to be a good value for money. 

2021 Audi Q7 Engine and Performance

9.0/10

The 2021 Audi Q7 will be offered with a choice of two different engines: 45 TFSi and 55 TFSi. The 45 TFSi is a 2.0L Turbocharged 4 Cylinder engine, that pushes out 248 hp @ 5,000 revs and 273 lb-ft of torques. The 55 TFSi is a more performance-oriented 3.0L Turbocharged V6 engine, which has 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque at its disposal. 

As standard, the 2021 Audi Q7 is offered with the 45 TFSi engine for the ‘Premium’ and ‘Premium Plus’ trims, while the ‘Prestige’ trim is offered with the 55 TFSi under the hood as standard. Both the trims can be upgraded to a 55 TFSi power plant however, it is an extra $6,000 option. As standard, the Q7 comes equipped with Audi's signature Quattro All-Wheel-Drive and an 8 Speed automatic transmission, that is efficient and manages all the power effectively.

The Audi on the other hand has the power available at lower revs and also gets higher torque than the Beemer.

2021 Audi Q7 Acceleration and Braking Performance

Performance is not something new to the engineers of Audi. The legendary Quattro from the vaults of Audi has daunted the rally tracks all around the world for many years. The 2021 Audi Q7 is offered with the Quattro All-Wheel-Drive drivetrain as standard and with the 2.0L Inline 4 cylinder engine under the hood, it can achieve a 60 MPH mark from a standstill in a mere 6.9 seconds. Although this might not seem like a very fanatic figure to start, considering that the Q7 is not a lightweight sports car, rather it's a heavyweight SUV, the 6.9 seconds mark is one great achievement

2021 Audi Q7 SUV Accelerate 0-60 MPh in 6.9 sec

The Audi Q7 weighs just a shy under 5,000 lbs, which makes it the heaviest SUV in the segment. The Quattro All-Wheel-Drive setup comes really handy, when it comes to controlling such a massive weight around. The Q7 gets 14.8” brake rotors in the front and 13.8” rotors in the rear wheels, which are undoubtedly the biggest amongst its competitors. Although the official numbers for 60 - 0 MPH have not been released yet, we are confident that the brakes of the new Q7 will be as effective as always.

In comparison to its competitors, the BMW X5 sDrive40i is the quickest off the line, with a 0-60 MPH time of 5.2 seconds. The X5 sDrive40i is the rear-wheel-drive version of the X5 and weighs considerably less than the Audi. With similar power at its disposal, the lightweight shows the advantage in the 0-60 times. However, even with the maximum weight in the segment, the Audi Q7, with the 55 TFSi (3.0L V6 engine), crossing the 60 mph marker in 5.7 seconds, it is still the second-fastest SUV off the line in the segment, outperforming the Jaguar F Pace and Acura MDX

2021 Audi Q7 Fuel Economy

7.2/10

The maximum weight and the biggest engine of the Q7 do take its toll over the gas mileage. The 2021 Audi Q7 can do about 17 MPG in the city and about 21 MPG on the highway, giving it a combined efficiency of 19 MPG. However, to compensate for the low efficiency, the Audi Q7 gets the biggest fuel appetite in the segment, with a 22.5-gallon gas tank. This gives the Q7 a minimum range of 383 miles in the city and a combined range of about 405 miles. 

The engine of the 2021 Audi Q7 is not the most frugal unit. It trades off fuel-efficiency with performance. Comparatively, the Audi Q7 is the lest efficient SUV among its competitors. To provide a relentless performance, the Quattro Drivetrain system takes up a lot of fuel and thus bringing the overall efficiency down by some mark. Also, to make up for it, the Q7 gets the biggest fuel tank in the lot.

The conventional buttons have been replaced with touch screens and motion sensors to make it easy to use and navigate for everyone.

2021 Audi Q7 Exterior

9.4/10

The Q7 line-up received a complete exterior makeover for the 2016 model year and the latest iteration continues almost the same ideology. The 2021 Audi Q7 gets more boxy exterior looks, which enhances the SUV character massively. The grille also has been made bigger and the LED headlamps have been redesigned to get the same Audi distinctive design as its other siblings.  

The 2021 Audi Q7 also hasn’t changed dimensionally as compared to the 2020 iteration. You still get the maximum length and the longest wheelbase in the segment, which in turn increases the interior spacing. The longer wheelbase gives the Q7 a more civilized and sophisticated look, rather than a rugged and ‘don’t mess’ character.

2021 Audi Q7 Safety

9.0/10

Although the 2021 Audi Q7 has not been crash-tested by NHTSA and IIHS yet, the 2020 version received an overall rating of 5 Stars. Since much has not changed for the 2021 iteration, we are confident that the all-new Q7 will still manage to pass all the tests with flying colors. With the changing times, auto manufacturers are getting more and more concerned about the safety of their clients as the engines and performance of all the vehicles are increasing. 

For the Q7, it's not just about the structural strength. Being one of the hotshots from the vaults of Audi, the Q7 comes equipped with a long list of safety features that you might not find even in some of the luxury cars of the price. Some of the noteworthy safety features are:

  • Active cruise control with lane-keep assistance
  • Audi Pre Sense Front, Pre Sense Basic, Pre Sense Rear
  • Tire pressure monitoring system
  • Rear Cross-Traffic alert
  • Night vision assist
  • Audi Park Steering assist
  • Lane Departure Assist
  • 360 View Camera

2021 Audi Q7 Competition

9.4/10

2021 Audi Q7 Vs BMW X5 sDrive40i

The BMW X5 sDrive40i is undoubtedly one of the most loved German SUVs. Being a Beemer, it is very much driver-oriented and exceptionally fun to drive. The beemer gets a 3.0L engine, with an Inline 6 cylinder as compared to the 3.0L V6 of the Audi.

BMW X5 sDrive40i

The Q7 gains more points in terms of practicality as it can seat 7 people as compared to the 5 people seating of the BMW X5 and certainly comes in more handy as a daily driver than the beemer. 

2021 Audi Q7 Vs Acura MDX

The Acura MDX is an offering from the Japanese automotive giants. It is easy to use, can seat 7 people, just like the Q7, and costs less than the Q7 as well. However, the Q7 gets a more characterful design and a better road presence.

Acura MDX

Moreover, the naturally aspirated engine of the MDX feels a bit less responsive as compared to its German counterpart. Overall considered, the Audi Q7 is a better car to live with as compared to the Acura MDX.

Its an Audi and looks like one

Pros - I love it inside out

Cons - Visibility maybe?

Overall Review

8 /10 Overall Rating

An Audi that behaves like one in every single sense and not just the driving. Best sculpted design inside out, smooth driving quality and impeccable power to appreciate. The only downfall would be visibility that demands extra bit of attention to avoid brushing up curbs and stuff.

Futuristic cabin

Pros - Front dash, dual screen, driver display

Cons - Fingerprint friendly center console, maintenance and parts cost arm and a leg, running boards are not a thing

Overall Review

Maintenance is a way higher than what dealership told me at the time of buying it. Pretty happy with everything especially the road presence because of its design but not to mention, comes with a price

Yeah

Pros - Handles well in city, Pulls up real quick, best ride quality

Cons - Third row is a let down and hybrid system is not able to improve the efficiency

Overall Review

8 /10 Overall Rating

Three important factors that make any car a best one to drive would be power, ability to hold up on rough patches, and handling(obviously not counting the mpg part here). We got our Q7 in Feb this year and right when I test drove it, it was pretty clear she meant some serious business and no nonsense. Focussed damn right, active air suspension( not standard though), does its thing to adjust the suspension based on the speed thus leaving little work for the driver and ensuring comfort on all road conditions. Next would be handling which obviously is helped by this suspension but I'm pretty sure would still have been impressive without it in place. Saving the best for the last, acceleration, in the right gear, it registers the throttle real quick and pulls up like it's not going to stop. Never feels like a two and a half ton suv.
