2017 Audi Q7 vs. 2017 BMW X5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q7 than in the BMW X5. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q7 and the BMW X5.

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). Clearly, the Audi Q7 is a better financial choice over the BMW X5, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Audi Q7 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW X5.

Dimensions
The Audi Q7 is a little wider than the BMW X5, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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
The Audi Q7 has much lower torque than the BMW X5, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Audi Q7 has the same turning radius as the BMW X5, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the BMW X5 is clearly the choice over the Audi Q7 for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Audi Q7 and 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.
