The Audi Q7 is a mid-size SUV with a spacious and comfortable interior with plenty of room for passengers and luggage, but do you want to know how many seats are available in the Audi Q7?

Audi offers the Q7 in different trim levels, which include different engines, while they also offer the Audi SQ7 which is the performance version of the SUV, all of these versions feature the same number of seats.

Audi Q7, How many seats does it have?

The Audi Q7 comes with standard seating for seven people across its three rows. It can accommodate two seats in the front row, three in the second row, and two in the back row.

Having standard seven seating makes the Q7 a great choice over its main German competitors, the BMW X5 and the Mercedes GLE, which come equipped with five seats as standard but offer an optional seven-seat option.

The Q7 is designed in a way that makes interior space as spacious as possible, the rear back has a more traditional SUV look compared with the Audi Q8, which features a coupe body-style design. 

That means that the Audi Q8 has less space in the back, which translates to only featuring a maximum of five seats, making it an inferior car compared to the Q7 in terms of practicality.

How many seating options? is the Audi Q7 a five or seven seater?

When it comes to seating options, Audi only sells the Audi Q7 as a seven seater, and they don’t offer a five seater option.

You should also know that the two seats in the third row have less space as the legroom and the headroom is considerably less than in the other rows.

That’s why if you want to get the best out of the third row you might want to use it for seating children or adults who are not very tall.

The good news is that you can fold the third-row seats so you can get great trunk space.

The Q7 is a great choice for those who don’t want a full-size SUV

For many people, full-size SUVs are too large and crossovers are too small, that’s why full-size SUVs have become such a popular option for many people, and in our opinion, it’s the most versatile option in terms of features and capabilities.

The problem with mid-size SUVs is that they usually come with a maximum of five seats, while the few that can fit seven seats require you to pay an extra price over the standard price.

This is where the Q7 shines, as it’s a seven-seater premium mid-size SUV that doesn’t require you to pay extra for the third row, and comes with a bunch of features, like Apple CarPlay, and Audi Side Assist which makes it a very interesting SUV.

If you want to find out how to fold and unfold the third-row seating here’s a video showing it in the 2017 Audi Q7, which uses the same system as 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023 model years:
