2015 Audi Q7 vs. 2015 Lexus RX 450h Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q7 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Lexus RX 450h. The Lexus RX 450h offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi Q7, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Audi Q7, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus RX 450h.

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). The Audi Q7 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus RX 450h. 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 Lexus RX 450h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q7 is much wider than the Lexus RX 450h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi Q7, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lexus RX 450h.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Audi Q7 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Lexus RX 450h.

Handling
The Audi Q7 has the same turning radius as the Lexus RX 450h, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Audi Q7 and the Lexus RX 450h.

Utility
The Audi Q7 offers greater seating capacity than the Lexus RX 450h, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Audi Q7 has less cargo space than the Lexus RX 450h, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi Q7 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus RX 450h.
