New aggressive lines with the same useful practicality, that is the Audi Q7!

Welcome back, and we have another review with sgCarMart! And today, we have the 2020 Audi Q7!

Being the largest and most practical vehicle in the Audi lineup,  the Q7 has been refreshed, and it now comes with more aggressive lines seen in its stablemates, but still retains that utility and practicality that it was brought to the table. After all, a seven-seat vehicle is always useful. So, let's see what Julian has to say about the Q7.

From the get-go, it looks handsome. Audi's design language has been pretty good these past years, nothing too controversial. And not to mention, their gorgeous daytime running lights and sequential signals are always a welcome touch.

I mean, just look at it. Audi really has it down pat with the design of the grille and those daytime running lights.

And if you can take anyone's word for it, it is Julian's. "Jumping into this car, it instantly made me feel comfortable". That's pretty high praise, I would say.

That grille is indeed pretty bold, and as per Julian said, he's not sure if the grille will suit the Q3 or Q5, but it fits the Q7.

And to get more context on how big the Q7 really is....

The rear of the Q7 looks just as good, sleek, modern and clean.

No need to fuss around when lowering the third row of seats. Audi has already thought of that and given you buttons to electronically lower the seats.

Audi knows the Q7 is a tall vehicle and loading it can be difficult for shorter people, so there is also a button to lower the rear of the car so as to make loading stuff in easier.

About 750 litres of boot space with the third row folded. If that isn't enough for you, knocking down the second row will give you over 2000 litres of cargo space. And if that still isn't enough, get a van. And if you're wondering, yes, the boot opens and closes electronically as well.

With the seat set to Jon's height (Jon is about 1.8m tall), Julian has a ton of leg room, even headroom.

A blessing in Singapore's weather, the Q7 comes with rear aircon vents not only in the middle, but also on the B-pillars so as to blow air directly at rear passengers.

And surprisingly, the third row actually doesn't look too bad. As long as you aren't too big or tall, you should be able to fit nicely back here.

Clean, sleek and modern with screens for your infotainment, climate control and instrument cluster. The Virtual Cockpit, as Audi terms it.

And always appreciated in a big car, 360 degree parking cameras and sensors.

    ComfortDelGro taxi driver whips out metal pipe during road rage

    We thought ComfortDelGro taxi drivers should be the most well-mannered taxi drivers on our island based on service standards, but this driver's actions made us stop and think. What made us think otherwise? This video of a very pissed-off taxi driver confronting the cam car driver for sounding his horn at him. Rewinding back to how it all started, the cam car can be heard sounding his horn at the taxi driver after a passenger gets off at a sheltered crossing. The taxi driver then proceeds to move off slowly, triggering the cam car driver to toot his horn in impatience.  The taxi driver does not react to the first horn which leads to a few more horns from cam car. This is where it gets interesting. The taxi driver's pissed off at this point, he takes his time to slowly drive into the carpark and stops on the second level to confront the cam car driver. We don't really know what happened after the taxi driver got off his taxi since most of the clip is on mute. Thankfully, no one got hurt in this road rage incident.  Could this have been avoided if the cam car just overtook the taxi at the shelter? Let us know! Not an isolated incident That is not the end of the story though. Someone else has also been a victim to the same taxi driver's road rage.

    Cyclist gets into an argument with BMW driver for not giving him space on the road

    As a driver, I always groan whenever I see a cyclist in front of me. As bicycles are naturally slower than cars, they tend to hog the lane they're on and I try my best to always steer clear away from them as possible. Not everyone's like that though. Let's take this BMW driver in the video for example. In the video, dated 15th March 2021, you can see that the driver doesn't adhere to the 'keep a 1.5m distance away from cyclists' rule nor does he steer away from the bicycle. If I didn't know any better, it actually looks like the driver wanted to run the cyclist down. Here's the video (turn up the volume to listen in on the conversation): For those who don't understand Hokkien, don't worry, Uncle Koba will be your translator The heated exchange happens after the cyclist slapped/knocked the side of the car to warn the driver how close the car was to him. The driver comes to a stop and horns 🥳 The driver lets out a string of vulgarities that does not need any translation   Cyclist: Eh, you purposely one is it?  Driver: What's the matter? I'm driving!️ Cyclist: Why are you coming closer and closer to me? Driver: Did I bang you? Cyclist: The road so big, why you choose to keep to this lane?   The rest of the video goes on to talk about their father, mother, cats & dogs.  Then the driver speeds off, leaving a fuming cyclist in the dust 💨 Do you think the driver should have given more space? Or, do you think that the cyclist has very entitled views on how cyclists should be treated on the roads?

    P-Plate VW Passat driver flexes lousy driving skills for the world to see

    TL;DR – VW Passat P-plate driver gets mad when he gets honked at for not stopping at the stop sign. Goes all aggro on cam car in front (with high beam and unnecessary lane cutting).   Question: What’s worse than a P-Plater who doesn’t know how to stop at a stop sign? Answer: An angry P-plater who doesn’t know how to stop at the stop sign.   What did you learn at driving school? I don’t know about you, but when I was learning how to drive, I’m pretty sure failing to stop at a stop sign was an immediate failure. Then we have this Passat driver, fresh out of driving school with his p-plates, not applying what he learnt less than 12 months ago. Here’s the video Wow, the audacity of this one Cam car gives a warning honk to the P-plater to avoid a collision. But that doesn’t sit well with the P-Plater. He proceeds to tailgate and highbeam the cam car in an aggressive manner.   If you thought that was all, towards the end of the video, P-plater swerves out of the lane, speeds up and cuts into cam car’s path like a maniac. Am confused What confuses me the most is that P-plater swerves back to the right lane after all that recklessness. Making him look like not just a prick, but a real noob-#$%^ driver. Loving the comments Lots of wise words from wise people. I really hope the TP sees this video and nabs this guy.

    A miracle is what this Scirocco needs if it ever wants to see the road again

    Well, here we are again. Another day, and another story about a Volkswagen Scirocco being stupid again. Now don't get this writer wrong. The Scirocco is a nice little car, especially when it is done up nicely and not wrapped up in some ghastly chrome wrap with an obnoxious exhaust that blares through the neighbourhood at night. Fun fact, the Scirocco is unobtainium for American buyers due to Volkswagen never making it available there. And yet what do owners here do with their Sciroccos? Read on. From our, uh, fellow, uh, compatriots(?) over at SG Road Vigilante, we have here a Scirocco with its engine separated from the car. From the information provided, this took place somewhere in Woodlands yesterday night, 19/1/2021. Now, typically the place one would see an engine being out from the car would be at a workshop. And with this Scirocco being a Volkswagen product, this writer is willing to bet that an engine out service happens quite often.   Let's not digress. This isn't an automotive workshop, which there are quite a few of in Woodlands. This is a neighbourhood street. So how did this Scirocco end up being separated from its engine in the middle of a street? This writer is guessing the driver was feeling particularly lucky and decided to test the strength and integrity of the bus stop bollards. Now, this writer is not the biggest fan of LTA (far from it, in fact), but one thing that they have done right is the installation of these bollards at all bus stops and multiple traffic junctions in Singapore. Just think, those bollards are meant to stop a literal bus that weighs at least 10 tons with no passengers on board, so what is one silly little Scirocco going to do to it? And should you need some reference..... This Lotus stood no chance. And neither did this bus. Seriously, people, don't test how strong these bollards are. This writer isn't a betting man but he is more than willing to bet that your vehicle isn't going to be too drivable after kissing a bollard at speed. Which is presumably what the driver of the Scirocco was doing. Furthermore, speeding through neighbourhood streets? Does this driver actually have that little disregard for his/her life, let alone others? If you want to maim or kill yourself, by all means, but don't drag others down with you, especially on neighbourhood streets where human traffic tends to be higher. And judging by how parts of the car, not to mention the engine, are strewn all about the road and the bus stop, the Scirocco definitely hit the bollard at a significant rate of speed. It's quite amazing to see how the rest of the car still looks relatively intact. Now once again, this writer is not condemning all Scirocco owners. Just the ones who can't seem to keep themselves out of trouble and end up causing more trouble and inconvenience for everyone else. And not to speculate, but this most likely could be the handiwork of some "YP". Just saying, you never know. 🤷 Ultimately, it doesn't look like anyone was hurt in this accident. At least we hope not. The only "fatality" here is that Scirocco because the only way that car could ever possibly drive again would be nothing short of divine intervention. Or a seemingly bottomless wallet and a lack of common sense, whichever comes first. Drive safely people. There's a time and place for everything, but showing off and acting a fool on the roads, especially neighbourhood streets, there's never any time nor place for that.
