2015 Audi Q7 vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz M-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Audi Q7 than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q7 and the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

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 Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

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 Mercedes-Benz M-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz M-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q7 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Audi Q7 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Handling
The Audi Q7 has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Audi Q7. When it comes to horsepower, the Audi Q7 has a lot less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Utility
The Audi Q7 offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Audi Q7 has less cargo space than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz M-Class.
