The Audi Q7 is one of the largest cars on the road so it pays to paint all that metal in a desirable colour. The right shade can improve a car’s resale values while the wrong one can leave you with a sizeable monthly washing bill.
Don’t forget, you can put the Audi Q7 in our car configurator to see how much carwow could help you save. To learn the difference between solid, metallic and special finishes, read our car paint types guide.
Solid paint finishes
Night Black – £0
One of only two free finishes, this classic shade of black suits the Q7 nicely. It contrasts well with the chrome detailing but, like most black shades, it’ll need cleaning on a regular basis and it’ll show up swirl marks from cheap car washes more easily. You’ll have no problems when the time comes to sell the vehicle on.
Pure White – £0
This is the only other free finish for the Q7. If you want your car to stand out, Pure White will be the colour for you. This crisp white coupled with the Q7’s large dimensions will certainly draw some attention. Cleaning on a regular basis will be required but you shouldn’t have many problems selling to the used market.
Metallic paint finishes
Argus Brown – £675
A very dark shade of brown that contrasts well with the chrome detailing. It’ll hide road-grime very well so regular washing won’t be a necessity and it should hold its value pretty well on the classifieds. Buyers won’t flock to this colour like they will black or grey but, on the whole, few will be put off.
Diamond Beige – £675
Diamond Beige is for those wanting something a little different without being ostentatious about it. It’s a classy colour that gives the Q7 a sophisticated look. Regular washing won’t be required but a clean and polished exterior will bring the most from it. Again, used buyers will pick silver first but won’t run from this finish.
Floret Silver – £675
A classic shade of silver, this’ll be good for those wanting to keep a low profile and to have strong re-sale values when placed on the used market. It’ll need plenty of washing to keep it looking good because silver doesn’t hide road dirt well.
Glacier White – £675
Slightly darker than Pure White though, with its metallic elements, it’ll give the Q7 a classier and more expensive look. Like Pure White, it’ll need washing on a regular basis but should sell like hot cakes when placed on the classifieds. It’ll hide scratches and swirl marks well, too.
Graphite Grey – £675
A classy shade that emphasises the Q7’s sophisticated persona. Its understated tone will attract many buyers meaning demand on the used market will be high. It won’t need washing on a regular basis but a clean and polished look will produce the best appearance.
Ink Blue – £675
Ink blue is a dark shade that contrasts nicely with the Q7’s chrome detailing. While some buyers want a subtle car, it can hide some of the curves and edges that help make the Q7 a distinctive machine. It shouldn’t need washing very much and will be very easy to sell on to the used market.
Orca Black – £675
A slightly lighter shade than Night Black but, thanks to its metallic properties, Orca Black helps make the Q7 look like a more expensive car. Regular trips to the local car wash will be required to keep it clean, but beware – cheap washes will show up swirl marks easily. Demand for black is high on the used market meaning no unexpected problems when selling it on.
Pearl effect paint finishes
Daytona Grey – £675
Daytona Grey is a halfway house between Graphite and Orca Black and is only available on top-spec S-Line models. The pearl effect finish adds another dimension to the paint when the sun shines meaning it has a more expensive look than many other shades here. It’ll need cleaning fairly often but resale values should be as high as they can possibly be.
Audi Exclusive finishes – £2,155
If the above shades don’t tickle your taste buds, then Audi will sell you an additional 47 colour shades ranging from bright orange trough to deep purple if that’s what you want. You can have them in either metallic or pearl effect finishes but, like most expensive finishes, don’t expect to make your money back when you sell the car on.
