    Audi Q7 or facelifted Cayenne?

    Which would you rather have?
    It's not even close IMO, the Q7 is far better looking than any other SUV on the market.

    Look at the two different rooflines, the Cayenne (roofline) looks like a London black cab in this picture

    Re: Audi Q7 or facelifted Cayenne?

    The first good looking SUV to be made IMO:

    Re: Audi Q7 or facelifted Cayenne?

    The Q7 4.2 TDI (326hp/650nm) would be my choice, if I could afford one:

    Re: Audi Q7 or facelifted Cayenne?

    Go off road much?

    Will Audi offer a low range for its gearbox and high enough ground clearance for rutted roads or to walk over small fallen trees?

    With out those, the Audi is really just a jacked up estate or station wagon with four wheel drive for inclement weather. Flood pants on four wheels.

    If you dont need or will never use the off road capabilities
    why get a Cayenne?

    Thats the logic part.

    The emotional side says buy the Porsche, after all it is a Porsche, and will just runaway on any road from the Audi Q7.

    Re: Audi Q7 or facelifted Cayenne?

    Does anyone go offraod with their Cayenne??
    (except Gary)

    At least no one overe her does, they're just too expensive.
    Overe here they are bought by people who want to show off, and those who have a cabin up in the mountains which has a road that might be snow covered in winter

    Re: Audi Q7 or facelifted Cayenne?

    i don't like the rear lights of the Q7, looks like a ssangyong

    Do you mean the (camouflaged) rear lights with red tape above or the real lights like in this picture?

    Re: Audi Q7 or facelifted Cayenne?

    If you need or have a reason to buy Audi, you can go ahead and get one, please do not compare Porsche with an Audi. Porsche is far too serious a car to be messed about.
    The relationship between VW and porsche is not something new in car manufacturing, most people that call Cayenne a Touareg are just not in real world, they haven't even driven both before, ask MikeS who has both cars he will tell you, they may look similar, but that is where the similatity ends, BTW I was one of those critisising the Cayenne until I test drove just the V6, I am telling you I took back everything I said about the car.
    If you want a 4x4 get any 4x4, if you want a SUV, get Cayenne, there is simply no other SUV in the market today, remember Porsche specialty is building sport cars, we have been sold 4x4 as Sport Utility Vehicle, P orsche put an end to that. Enough said.

    No..the car is not meant to be a real offroader...( which makes sense to me , as 99% of the buyers do not use their SUV off road.
    They target to sell more then 50% of the production to the US.
    It has 7 seats and good head room for all passengers. This car will be the car for MDKS ( mothers who drive their kids to school) !!

    Re: Audi Q7 or facelifted Cayenne?

    New Cayenne Facelift = vulgar - will look much better when released.

    Audi = repulsive - oversized van. These pics have been floating around the net for months - this is obviously some souped up - sport version - but it's still unimpressive. Reminds me of that Volvo monstrosity.

    Yes, there are a few Cayennes that go off-road, and the vehicle is quite capable, but I generally agree with your statement. Even with the Cayennes I off-road with, I find most of them less adventurous in hill-climbing, mud, rocky terrain, etc.

    Re: Audi Q7 or facelifted Cayenne?

    I'm not too sure what I think of the facelifted Cayenne. Some of the photos I see I like, and others I don't.
    I'm not putting much tought into it though, I'll have to wait to see it without any camo before coming to any conclusions. Even though the current Cayenne isn't a great looking SUV, I've never thought of it as ugly.
    I like the styling direction of the new Q7, from the front at least. I don't like either of those rear shots.

    The Cayenne is a great combination of what a modern SUV is, and what an SUV should be. Even though most owners will never even get close to off-roading in one, from what I hear it's pretty capable if you do decide to hit the trails.
    On road, its performance is stunning for a big SUV, and I totally agree that most Cayenne haters have probably never driven one.

    Re: Audi Q7 or facelifted Cayenne?

    The Cayenne facelift photo is still heavily camoed on the front end, but so far I like the headlight cluster since it's more aggressive. As for the Q7, I think the vehicle is so large a lot of the "sporty" styling cues seem out of place on it. I think the Q5 looks a lot better.

    Re: Audi Q7 or facelifted Cayenne?

    I think the Q5 and it's competitors is where the market is headed. The Q7 may offer additional space that many potential buyers are asking for but what they are actually buying seems to be moving in the direction of the compact SUV. The Freelander and X3 are very hot right now.

    Re: Audi Q7 or facelifted Cayenne?

    Well my two cents are the following, the x3 is not selling very well here. the Q5 however looks much better than the Q7, and i think it would sell well in this part of the world. I personally am thinking to trade in my CT for the facelifted one or i might be tempted to throw out the whole SUV idea and go for a 997 turbo still debating between the two. in the meantime im thinking of modding my ct with some techart stuff like the front foglights and the rear apron

    Re: Audi Q7 or facelifted Cayenne?

    The Q5 is a great looking SUV. Its small dimensions really suit the styling.
    I still want to see some official shots of the Q7, but I doubt it will look as good as its smaller sibling.
