So what can you expect from the new 2020 Audi Q7? Continue reading and we'll walk you through everything you need to know. 

The Style

The style of the Audi Q7 has always been appreciated. Although some fans of the car have found previous versions to be a bit on the unimpressive side. But any of those detractors will be pleased to see the slight but powerful styling adjustments that Audi has made. 

The grille at the front of the car has undergone a full facelift. A big update is that it now has vertical slats running down it instead of the more traditional horizontal ones. The new headlights have also been thinned and elongated. 

When looking at the car from the side, you'll notice new alloy wheel designs. The car door sills are thicker which helps give the appearance that the car is taller. The Q7's taillights are also flatter. 

There's now an aluminum strip that runs horizontally along the back of the car's exterior. Plus, there's some extra underbody protection underneath the rear.

The Interior

The biggest change for sure is the interior of the car. The infotainment system is no longer above the dashboard but is now a part of it. They also got rid of the dial used to control the system and instead converted the system to a touchscreen interface. 

This seven-seater also offers plenty of space as you can fold down the two back rows when carrying a lot of cargo. You're also getting plenty of legroom and headroom so even tall passengers will feel comfortable in the back rows. 

There's also a lot of trunk space even if you have all of the seven seats raised and occupied. You can also lower and raise the third-row seats with the press of a button inside the tailgate. 

The Drive

Air suspension is now standard on all versions of the 2020 Audi Q7. In the past, you had to pay extra for this when you had a cheaper trim level. 

The S Line and Sport trims have regular air suspension which is going to give you an incredibly smooth drive. You can also choose the Comfort mode option for a super smooth ride. 

You'll also get either a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. Or if you want, you can opt for the 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine. This optional engine utilizes a 48-volt hybrid system that gets 335 horsepower. 

The car is also extremely responsive as well as quiet. You're going to hear barely any noise from the wind as you cruise down the highway. 


The 2020 Audi Q7 comes with a large 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen. There's also a smaller 8.6-inch screen that can be found right below it. This smaller screen to adjust vehicle settings and climate control.

The sound system also utilizes Vehicle Noise Compensation (VNC). This uses an on-board microphone to constantly check on the quality of the sound system and make up for internal and external noise. 


The new 2020 Audi Q7 comes with a variety of helpful safety features. With Audi pre sense basic and front, your vehicle will collect important data that was collected by the car's sensors. The system can then warn you of potential incidents that also initiate preventative measures so you stay safe and secure. 

With Parking System Plus, the car uses its ultrasonic sensors to let you know when you're close to another object or vehicle. The system's display will show you a detailed view of the parking situation by utilizing the rearview camera. 

Ther vehicle's Audi Side Assist will let you know when there are cars in your rear blind spots. It will also alert you when you're reversing by using Rear Cross Traffic Assist. Also, you'll get Vehicle Exit Warning alerts to let passengers know that vehicles are nearby when before they go to open the car's doors. 

Audi Adaptive Cruise Assist is designed to help you out when you're in bumper-to-bumper traffic. This feature will help you keep a preset distance from the vehicle in front of you by using steering guidance, braking, and throttle. 

Audi Active Lane Assist with Emergency Assist will monitor how your car is positioned. It can help you stay within your lane by using its steering guidance. And if it senses that the driver is inactive, its Emergency Assist feature will kick in.
