The traditional Audi estates and saloons have always been a great success in the UK, thus making the production of the Q7 SUV considered by many to be a natural progression. Its entry into this segment of luxury family cars had to be good given the many other competing makes and models available. It is a result of top of the class engineering that enabled it to find a place near the top of the pack in the already saturated family car market. The Audi Company offers customers a wide variety of specifications and colours to choose from, in addition to allowing customers to devise their own paint schemes which the company happily mixes for them using metallic or pearl effects (at high expense of course!).
