It crushed me! Lucky that only morally... The first impression is an association with a fighting an elephant or a whale. Huge, with a long front bumper Audi Q7 turned next A6 sedan in a short, tiny little car.
However, it will be easy to get used to its size in a dense stream of cars. The visibility is excellent. I was surprised that nearly 2.5-ton weightlifter slows so intensely and consistently. This is due to the tires M+S. Modern high-speed SUV is always a contradiction of meanings. Such machine doesn't have offroad qualities in the classical sense.
Yes, in the suspension position lift a clearance of Audi 2006 is very solid (the car itself is lowered lift into offroad at speed of about 30 kmph, about 100 kmph in comfort; and only the driver can manage dynamics. But looking at its very long base, the lowest point of which is in the tank. Who dares to drive such a car in the dirt? Their element is the roadways, maybe not very smooth, dirty or covered with snow, but solid.
