The Audi Q7 Vs. The BMW X5 and Volvo XC90

Providing drivers throughout West Lafayette and Crawfordsville with iconic Audi performance and craftsmanship in the SUV body style, the Audi Q7 stands atop the Audi SUV lineup as uniquely spacious, ergonomically designed and precision crafted. From its powerful engine options to the advanced driver assistance technology featured within, the Audi Q7 outstrips comparable models with effortless poise. While models like the BMW X5 and Volvo XC90 may entice drivers, neither surpass the Audi Q7.


The Audi Q7 Vs. The BMW X5

The BMW X5 confidently challenged the Audi Q7 with its versatile performance, unique interior and exterior styling, and advanced technology. However, its numerous amenities and features ultimately fall short of surpassing the precision craftsmanship of the Audi Q7, as the massive price difference hardly justifies the marginal gains in capacity and power.

  • The BMW X5 starts at a staggering $60,700, while the Audi Q7 starts at a more palatable $49,900.
  • Both vehicles offer a 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine. The BMW X5 barely surpasses the Audi Q7 in power (335 horsepower and 330 pound-feet versus the Audi Q7's available 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet).
  • Both vehicles offer an all-wheel drive system, with the Audi Q7 featuring the legendary quattro® system and the BMW featuring its xDrive system.
  • The BMW X5 narrowly beats the Audi Q7 in cargo capacity, with a maximum 72.3 cubic feet to the Audi Q7's 71.6 cubic feet.
  • Both vehicles boast a five-star NHTSA safety rating for maximal peace of mind.
  • Both vehicles feature premium infotainment technology and an array of driver assistance systems. However, the BMW X5 fails to match the Audi Q7's MMI® all-in-touch system with handwriting recognition for ease of navigation.
  • Both vehicles feature premium leather upholstery for a comfortable ride, and both vehicles feature a large sunroof above passengers' heads.
 

 

The Audi Q7 Vs. The Volvo XC90

Like the BMW X5, the Volvo XC90 stands as a formidable opponent to the Audi Q7. With powerful engine options and ample interior space, the Audi Q7 narrowly outstrips the Volvo XC90 with unmatched vehicle dynamics and performance.

  • The Audi Q7 features standard quattro® all-wheel drive across all models, while the Volvo XC90 comes standard equipped as front-wheel drive for vastly inferior handling in inclement weather.
  • Standard-equipped, the Audi Q7 comes with a more powerful engine. The 2.0-liter TFSI® engine features 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet, while the Volvo XC90's base powertrain produces only 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet.
  • The Volvo XC90's 85.7-cubic feet of maximum interior cargo capacity surpasses the Audi Q7's leaner 71.6 cubic feet.
  • Both vehicles feature plush upholstery materials, a sunroof, and variety of interior amenities for passengers and drivers alike.
  • Both vehicles offer a five-star NHTSA safety rating. However, the Volvo XC90 doesn't feature the various Audi pre sense® systems for additional degrees of driver assistance.
