We moving to CH middle of the year. We wanted to get a CX9 but Mazda do not sell them in Europe (confirmed with Mazda and on their website). The ones you find here are private imports and I have beed advised that they can't be registered (or whatever they call it in CH) for 7 seats. Madness. Far better car and deal than any Euro 7 seater.

Gas in Europe is $8 a gallon consequently people don't buy petrol engines US market petrol guzzlers!

The Q7 is a fine automobile - its consumption isn't low but its not a deal breaker either.
Word of caution a shiny all new q7 will be released next year or later this year - The Cayenne and the Touareg have been replaced (q7's older brother and father respectively) with lower consumption and substantially less weight!

Re: Audi Q7 - your thoughts

We're obviously very uncool (and maybe cheap) no fancy brands for us - we just bought a Ford S Max 7 seater. I am sure it's smaller than some of the monster cars mentioned but I have still had trouble parking it in many underground car parks out of town and new buildings. It's taken me a while to get used to the width. But it does have 3 proper full seats in the back although I haven't tried 3 car seats just two with an adult very comfortable in the middle of them

But after not driving for 6 years since moving here I find it a nice easy drive and after a couple of days I was used to driving on the other side

Re: Audi Q7 - your thoughts

I think a conventional, diesel, latest generation people carrier will fit all the OP's requirements then some, saving them a lot of cash in the process, both in running costs and outright purchase. They'll be easier to park too.

Of course, if "status" is important, get the q7.
