Standard on every 2020 Audi Q9 Safety Sense, which really is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.

You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with many different additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a more impressive 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.

Cabin storage is good although not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Audi Q9 includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.

It’s very easy to mount a car seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough space so the front seat will not need to be scooted all the way forward.
