Audi Q7 Depreciation

An Audi Q7 will depreciate 64% after 5 years and have a 5 year resale value of $24,652.

The Audi Q7 fares just barely better than its little brother, the Q5, with respect to losing value, but it's still not very convincing if buying new. If I were you, I'd look for a 2017 or 2018 that has come off of lease, and save yourself a lot of money. Also, try to find a Q7 that is "certified", and has an extended warranty, as that is where the real value lies.

The chart below shows the expected depreciation for the next 10 years. These results are for vehicles in good condition, averaging 13,500 miles per year, and assumes a purchase price of $68,669 when new. Key in your purchase price, expected ownership period and estimated annual miles driven into our depreciation calculator, and we'll predict an expected resale value just for you.

If you purchase a used Audi Q7 that is 2 years old, then you could save $23,766 compared to buying new, and still have a relatively new model with plenty of useful life remaining. If you plan to keep this vehicle for 3 years then your total cost of depreciation would be $20,251. Try other age and ownership length combinations, or different vehicles to see if you can find depreciation sweetspots where this cost is the lowest. Hint: Try vehicles between 2 and 4 years old, as brand new vehicles depreciate quickly. Also, if this is a recently released model and buying a few years old isn't possible, consider another vehicle, or perhaps wait until more used Q7 models become available.

The Best Model Years to Buy an Audi Q7

The 2017 Audi Q7 is our top pick for the best model year value for the Q7. With the 2017, you would only pay, on average, 57% of the price as new, with 75% of the vehicle's useful life remaining. The 2018 and 2019 model years are also attractive years for the Q7, and provide a relatively good value. Our rankings consider multiple factors, including the Q7's price as new, current price, maintenance costs and remaining years of overall predictabe expenses. Our top ranked model year represents the most car for the money of the Audi Q7 models.

About Our Data and "Useful Lifespan"

We aggregate and analyze millions of automotive data points from a variety of sources, including some of the industry's leading data providers. The historical depreciation tables, charts, values and overall rankings are conducted on a semi-annual basis, with our most recent update published in September 2020.

While the "Useful Lifespan" of a vehicle will vary greatly from one model to the next, and even one owner to the next, we have determined that twelve years is the most appropriate timeframe which will yield us good, usable data - and that any data beyond that timeframe becomes more dispersed, and ultimately less reliable. Moreover, maintenance costs beyond that timeframe become significantly more varied, as a vehicle owner's care of a particular vehicle will greatly impact its value, and ongoing maintenance costs. We are very much hopeful, however, that your car or truck will last well beyond twelve years, and that it gets you to where you want to go.
