16. AUDI Q7

Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

FOR the Q7 Mk2, Audi put its full-sized SUV on a diet, and now it’s one of the best-han­dling and most ef­fi­cient lux­ury 4x4s on sale. There are con­ven­tional diesel ver­sions and the high-per­for­mance SQ7 on offer, but the e-tron plug-in hy­brid is an in­trigu­ing al­ter­na­tive.

A raft of driv­ing modes means the Q7 feels just at much at home off the road as it does on it. The clever 4WD sys­tem also sends power where it can best be used to boost trac­tion and per­for­mance. Price range: £50,060-£88,295 Our pick: 3.0 TDI 258PS qu­at­tro e-tron (£66,510) En­gine: 3.0 V6 diesel/ elec­tric mo­tor, 254bhp Trans­mis­sion: 8-spd auto, per­ma­nent 4WD Top speed: 143mph Econ­omy: 156.9mpg CO2: 48g/km
