2017 Audi Q7 vs. 2016 Volkswagen Touareg Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q7 than in the Volkswagen Touareg. The Volkswagen Touareg 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
With the Volkswagen Touareg, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi Q7, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Whether you pick the Audi Q7 or the Volkswagen Touareg, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi Q7 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Dimensions
The Audi Q7 is a little wider than the Volkswagen Touareg, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 Volkswagen Touareg.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Audi Q7 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Touareg.

Handling
The Audi Q7 has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Touareg, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Audi Q7 will do just as well as the Volkswagen Touareg, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Audi Q7 greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Touareg.

Utility
The Audi Q7 offers greater seating capacity than the Volkswagen Touareg, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Audi Q7 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi Q7 than that of the Volkswagen Touareg.
