There's no avoiding it, the Audi Q7 is a big car. This isn’t a bad thing, though, as many turn to cars such as the Q7 for space. It's a similar story with rivals such as the Range Rover Sport and Volvo XC90. All are well over two metres wide and 1.7 metres tall. As for length, the only one of the three to surpass five metres is the Q7.

Despite its large proportions, parking a Q7 isn’t as daunting as you might think thanks to all the parking assistance technology on offer. Optional four-wheel steering helps with manoeuvrability, too. Also, the driving position is great thanks to a steering wheel and driver’s seat that are both adjustable. 

Audi Q7 hybrid interior space, storage & comfort

There's ample space for driver and passengers in a Q7 TFSI e, although not as much as other large SUVs such as the (non-hybrid) Land Rover Discovery. One of the Audi’s most obvious drawbacks is that its lower roofline makes it more difficult to climb into than some rivals. The chunky wheelarches don’t help with this, either. Taken in isolation, there's plenty of space in the rear, although the layout isn’t quite as smart as the Discovery. Also, thanks to batteries taking up some space under the floor, there's no seven-seat Q7 TFSI e.

Boot space

The Q7 TFSI e’s boot can hold 650 litres, which is down on the 770 litres offered by non-plug-in Q7s. That said, this figure compares well to some rivals, with the Volvo XC90 Recharge claimed to have 640 litres of cargo space (or 262 litres with the two third-row seats in place).
