With plenty of road presence, the powerful Audi Q7 has emerged at the front of the pack among the luxury SUV section of the car market.

The Q7 marks a point in history for the iconic German manufacturer, as the first of many SUV models they’d go on to produce.

Interesting fact

What to know about taxing and insuring your Audi Q7

Insurers look at lots of information about you and your vehicle before they come to a quote that’s fair. You’ll probably know that things like your age and where you live play a role in this process, along with the specifications of the car you want covered. To assess the latter, your insurer may use your car’s insurance group in their calculations. Insurance groups are bandings that run from 1-50 whereby the lower the group, the cheaper parts and repairs tend to be.

Then there’s Vehicle Excise Duty to think about. This is road tax paid annually on your car and what you owe is determined by a banding system, whereby the most polluting vehicles pay more.

Tax bands and car insurance groups for some editions of the Audi Q7 are:

Model Insurance Group Tax Band
Audi Q7 3.0 TDI Quattro SE 5d Tip Auto 35 I
Audi Q7 3.0 TDI Quattro S Line 5d Tip Auto 36 I
Audi Q7 Sport 45 TDI 231PS Quattro auto 5d 41 J
Audi Q7 Sport 45 TDI 231PS Quattro auto 5d 42 J
Audi Q7 Sport 50 TDI 286PS Quattro auto 5d 44 J
Audi Q7 Vorsprung 50 TDI 286PS Quattro auto 5d 46 J
Audi Q7 SQ7 4.0 BiTDI 435PS Quattro 5d auto 49 J

At Ageas, we aim to offer our comprehensive cover to a wide range of UK drivers. But we can’t guarantee an insurance policy for every kind of car and every drivers, so we may be unable to insurance some Audi Q7 variants.  

We will determine if we can provide you with a quote based on a number of factors that include your car and your personal circumstances.
