The Q7 will handle anything like that with ease. The back seat is massive compared to a LR4; it reminds me of a LWB back seat.

I get 17-18 city and about 20 highway and it handles like an A8. I just wish I had more patience and ordered a tdi.

I agree about the LR4. We've looked at those too but honestly why would I want to spend $50k on another LR3 with painted fenders when I could spend $40k on a mint 2009-10 MKIII??

We looked at Audi's too but couldn't get over how generic everything seems to be. I don't know about the Q8... Before I bought my WRX I considered a hatch A4. Blah.

On that note; we have actually decided to get a MKIII and ditch the LR3.
