Need help buying your next car? Click my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

This is the new Audi SQ7!

Rolling in with a number of exterior \u0026 interior updates, along with an all-new engine, Mat’s on hand to find out whether this newly-updated 7-seater is the must-have, family-friendly performance SUV!

So what’s new compared to the old model? Well the big difference is under the bonnet! Whereas previously model was diesel-only, the new SQ7 rolls up with a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 to deliver 507hp \u0026 770Nm of torque!

As for the other updates, you’ll find the usual styling tweaks both inside and out, but what else would you expect from a mid-life facelift?

The question is, can Audi warrant the almost £100,000 for the range-topping Vorsprung model? You’ll need to stick with Mat to find out!

    18:20 - well said. I have a 2017 SQ7 and it is a phenomenal 7 seat SUV but I wish it would look meaner and more badass. Without looking closely, you won’t know it’s a beast. But SQ7 does have more room than the X5

    By dropping the diesel V8, this car lost all its uniqueness, which made it stand out among the others. Now, it's just another station wagon with a huge V8 petrol, having to fight for the attention among similar cars.

    You always go on about fake car exhausts but In reality they look more nicer than standard exhaust pipes

    It’s very sad that car reviewers aren’t impressed by a 90.000£ performance suv that cruises with 100 mph stable through a corner. This thing is nuts with all its technology. More appreciation for such a vehicle please

    So the A8 is the Flagship of Audi. And the Q8 should be the Flagship too just a Q right? But why dont i feel like its right. The Q7 is better than the Q8 i think. Its a shame its not getting a RSQ7. I'd love that

    We need a drag race between the old SQ7 and the new one

    Having worked for many German manufacturers I can tell you that exhaust fakery is done mostly to save cost - they require less expensive stainless steel and save time in assembly.

    You're quite right Matt, this SQ7 looks like a fat estate car which was jacked up a bit. It does not look anything better like its competitors, BMW or Mercedes . SQ8 is a much better looking SUV.

  • Nik Gnashers

    It looks awful. It's fucking massive, so you can't go to the local Tesco's because in a normal parking slot you can't open the doors. It's not a sports car, it's a barge. What use is sub 4 seconds 0-60, apart from rich yuppie mums racing from one set of traffic lights to the next to make themselves feel superior. It's extremely expensive, and it's not economical. I bet there is just as much room, maybe more, inside a conventional estate/touring like an M340i for example, which will be plenty fast enough, faster covering ground and actually going round corners, be more economical, and cost half the price. It's a pointless vehicle.

    14:00 most of the time they'll just block the left lane on the Autobahn with 160km/h even tho other lanes are empty. And when they finally move out of the way and you can go up to speed again, they accelerate next to you, to demonstrate that their car is more powerful than yours. I don't know what it is that makes these cars so attractive to that kind of people and why they are so butthurt when someone else drives faster. But I wish they'd go back to limousines, so you can at least look past them

      It's pointless though. What use is it, apart from yuppie mums racing from one set of traffic lights to the next set, with their spoilt brat kids pulling faces at you out of the back window ? It's not a sports car, you can't park it anywhere because it's so fucking huge you can't open the doors in a normal parking slot at a supermarket, it's not economical, it's fucking expensive, and you probably get more room inside a normal estate car.

  • Alex Sherwood

    Does anyone else HATE this new clickbaity "I'm doing to launch it later in the video so keep watching" thing?? I can put up with the "click on the popout banner" stuff and the "I've configured one but not going to tell you what it is" thing, i get that they're trying to get people to CarWow, but what is the point in this latest thing?? Almost makes me want to skip to the 0-60 even though I don't really care about it, previously I would have just watched the whole video anyway...

    Not that the 4.0 L V8 is bad but arent they overusing it? A V8 diesel is so much more epic imo and fits the vehicle way better. People who have this want a Land Cruiser with M5 speeds but a V8 petrol???? Thats just plain unpractical if you ask me. #SaveTheDiesel

    Entertaining video, as ever. But this is 2021. Petrol cars are banned from sale in the U.K. from 2030, for apparently good reason. Why would any responsible manufacture make new cars that do 17 mpg? And why would any responsible buyer buy one, even if they can easily afford one? Even if they don’t have kids to inherit the planet and the mess we leave behind?

  • FF

    How many times has Matt said “SQ7”? 😂

    The rear makes the Q7 look like an inflated estate car. This is where Audi designers lost it. I like Audi cars but concede that this model has a hard time appealing to buyers of the likes of Benz GLS. Power and luxury are both desirable but in this segment looks are equally important.
