Okay - both the Q7 and Mercedes R class had 3 rows of seats, front / 2nd / and fold down 3rd.

The R class has easily 8 inches or more of leg room over what the Q7 currently has for the 2nd row passengers when the front seats were all the way back and tilted. (I'm 6' 5" and my seat is always back.) Yes - the 2nd row seats in my Q7 are back all the way. (When I vacuum my car out, I move them forward to get underneath them and then return them all the way back again.)

I've had 7 years of driving R classes and the my 2017 Q7 does not have the leg room that the Mercedes R class has.

My Regards........

Well, I'm not sure HOW the legroom is measured when specs are reported, but here are the specs for both:

Front legroom: 39.8 in.
2nd row legroom: 36.2 in.
combined: 76 in.

Front legroom: 41.7 in.
2nd row legroom: 38.8 in.
combined: 80.5 in.

To eliminate issue of how these numbers are derived, you should always use combined legroom to get a better sense of available space. It would appear (on paper) that Q7 has 4.5in more overall combined legroom than R350. Honestly, when I downsized to Q7 from GL450, I noticed that the second row had more legroom than the GL. GL combined legroom is 78.8, so almost 2 inches shorter. Your perception of more legroom (8 inches) may also something to do with seating position which are markedly different between Q7 and R350.

When I come to a complete stop, I turn on the ACC. That holds the car and I assume that the brake lights come on as it would if ACC stopped the car when the car in front stops.

Like the HUD but all I get is the speed and some navi function.
Never use the navi. Prefer google maps via car play. Wish g maps operated in instrument cluster.
Experienced uneven acceleration in comfort mode. Set individual to dynamic and balanced and smoothed it out.
I love this suv. I particularly r like the tiptronic transmission. Slap the t handle bac to sport and go. Handles beautifully. Ride quality is very good also quiet. Very peppy.
Great vehicle.
google maps DOES operate in the IP. how can you not know this? just select nav from the 4 display options and if you have gmaps selected as the map display, voila. google maps in the IP

I wish I had ordered the super high evd sound over the B&O. While I like it, I could use a little more refinement which the music I enjoy.... the massage seats seem like a good one as well. Self parking should have 100% been available in the US Q7s.

The very last thing I would have ordered was a custom color.... i made it work with florett silver and a matte wrap , there are so many potential colors that would have been better matte wrapped.

It's a pretty stupid design if you ask me plus the pizza oven tends to burn me pies.

try one of these:

i bought one of the choices tht replace the drivers grab handle and works great!

A higher output engine option would have been nice, the 3.0 isn't terrible but it feels underpowered for this large vehicle.

Minor stuff:

- When the parking automatically activate, it should show display surround view rather than the graphical proximity overlay, assuming your car is equipped with surround view.
- Auto start/stop enable/disable should be a sticky configuration
- Gear selector seems like a waste of space and pointless as there is no mechanical linkage, should have just used buttons and had more usable center console storage.
- A configuration option to autostart night vision when the headlights are activated
