2015 Audi Q7 vs. 2014 BMW X5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q7 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the BMW X5, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q7 and the BMW X5.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q7 as you will with the BMW X5, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi Q7 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW X5. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Audi Q7 and the BMW X5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q7 is much wider than the BMW X5, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi Q7, which is slightly longer than the BMW X5.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi Q7 and the BMW X5 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Audi Q7 has a smaller turning radius than the BMW X5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Audi Q7, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the BMW X5. The Audi Q7 has a little less horsepower than the BMW X5.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q7 and the BMW X5. The Audi Q7 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the BMW X5.

Warranty
The Audi Q7 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X5.
